Under IBM Rational Quality manager (RQM) v3.x release onwards, during the course of creating a new defect work item, you are allowed to select the record type. Below are 2 such scenarios where the record types differ between older (2.x) and newer versions (3.x onwards) of RQM.
A particular difference between the integrations of RQM 2.x and CQ and RQM 4.x and CQ.
Integration in 2.x with CQ 8.x:
- During script execution, when you click on "Add a new defect", it directly opens the Defect Record form specific to CQ.
However when you setup the Integration of RQM v4.x with CQ 8.x:
- During script execution, when you click on "Add a new defect", it opens the dialog box where you can select the CQ Record type. RQM should only link to CQ defect. However, here you are able to choose any option out of the list of record types and save it. Even have it linked to the test script execution. So, you are able to link any record type to the test script execution.
The functionality to select record types ( RQM/CQ integration) was added via RFE 25717 in version 4.0.1; this is the current default behavior (i.e. functioning as intended).
