Publishing test result to HCL Quality Server

The test result indicate the quality of the application under test. There could be different stakeholders to the application who do not have the workbench installed but want to check the quality of application. You, as the user of the workbench, can publish the test result to HCL Quality Server so that others can view it from the web browser.

Before you begin

  • Install HCL Quality Server server on any machine and start it. You get the server as part of IBM® Rational® Performance Test Server. For more information about HCL Quality Server server, see the HCL OneTest™ API documentation.
  • If the HCL Quality Server server is behind a firewall, you might not be able to connect to it. You must configure the firewall so that it can allow connections on ports 5443 and 7828.

About this task

You can publish only XML and HTML logs. Also, you cannot open Verification Point Comparator from the published result.
Note:
  • This feature is available only with the Eclipse-based HCL OneTest UI.
  • If you delete the HCL Quality Server local workspace, the results cannot be recovered. You have to publish the results again from the workbench.

You can choose to set the publish parameters once in the Preference page so that you do not have to do it after every run or you can set the parameters every time for the specific result that you want to publish. Based on the publish parameters, the test result is published after the test run. For information about how to publish specific test result, see Publishing specific result to HCL Quality Server.

Procedure

To set the publish parameters:

  1. Click Window > Preferences > Test > HCL Quality Server.
  2. In Unified Reporting Server, type the URL of the server. The format is https://servername:5443 and click Test Connection.
  3. In Publish result after execution, select when to publish test result. In the initial stage when you are debugging a test, you might not want to publish the test result. Select one of the options based on your need.
    • Select Never to never publish the test results to the server.
    • Select Prompt to ask you to publish the test results after every test run.
      Note: A command line run will always publish the test results even if the workbench is set to Prompt.
    • Select Always to publish the test results after every test execution.
  4. In Publish to Project, select a project that is in the server. The test result will be published to that project. If there are no projects or you want to create a new project, click New Project. As part of the publish process, the new project will be created in the server.
  5. Click OK.

Results

Depending on the parameters that you have set, the test results will be automatically published to the Unified Reporting Server.

To view the test results, click Reports on the HCL Quality Server landing page.

You can also view test results by accessing https://myserver:5443/results from the web browser. From version 9.2.0.1, you can view the Unified Reporting APIs by starting HCL Quality Server and accessing https://myserver:5443/api/explorer?root=/results from the web browser.
