Next Steps: Setting up and using qTest Manager is easy.  For a step-by-step checklist to navigate your first qTest experience, please refer to the Quick Start Guides.

Use Friendly Object URL's

You can access qTest objects with the friendly URL format: [your qTest URL]/p/[project-ID]/portal/project#key=[Object PID]

Note: PID is case-sensitive.

Utilizing Toggle ID

Every object in qTest Manager, such as Release, Module, Requirement, Test Case, Test Run, etc. has a unique ID attached to the object's name.  You can show or hide an object's IDs on the Navigation tree using the Toggle option on the top tool bar.  To show or hide an object's IDs:

  1. Go to a menu you want to show or hide the object's IDs.
  2. Click the Toggle icon on the top toolbar.
  3. Check objects you want to show IDs or uncheck to hide IDs.
