Open Mic: Managing Rational Performance Tester (RPT) and Rational Functional Tester (RFT) test assets through Rational Quality Manager (RQM)
Please join our Bangalore support team on Tuesday, May 25th, 3-4pm IST, for an informative open mic on Managing Rational Performance Tester and Rational Functional Tester test assets in Rational Quality Manager.
Briefing for the Topic
We will start the session with a brief discussion on RFT, RPT and RQM tools and the main course covering the integrations
of RFT; RPT with RQM and then list out the benefits, value addition this integration provides to customers. We will also have a demo towards the end of the discussion and a summary on the concepts discussed.
About Rational Quaiity Manager
IBM® Rational® Quality Manager is collaborative, Web-based, quality management software for comprehensive test planning and test asset management throughout the software life cycle. Built on the Jazz™ platform, it is for test teams of all sizes and supports a variety of user roles, such as test manager, test architect, test lead, tester, and lab manager, as well as roles outside of the test organization.
Rational Quality Manager enables users to manage and run automated test scripts created with other test tools by integrating RQM with the testing tools. You can create test scripts in RQM that refer to existing tests that were created with IBM® Rational® Functional Tester, Rational Performance Tester, Rational Service Tester, Rational Robot, and Rational AppScan Tester Edition.
IBM® Rational® Functional Tester (RFT), IBM® Rational® Performance Tester (RPT), IBM® Rational® Quality Manager (RQM) customers and IBM internal contacts.

Jazz.net is live with a completely reworked and improved website
The new Jazz.net site includes the addition of Rational Requirements Composer, Quality Manager, and Focal Point for Project Management. We have done what you asked for and made much more of our Jazz Development open and transparent. Now clients and community members will be able to enjoy the benefits of transparent development but no longer just for Rational Team Concert. Now you can participate with us in shaping plans, prioritizing fixes, and interacting directly with our expanding Jazz Development Team for three new Jazz Products. See http://jazz.net/ for the complete details

For Example, look at the below screenshot where few execution states are renamed.
The generated report, for example "TSE
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
1. Navigate to Manage Project Properties → Execution States and rename the existing Execution state Permanently Failed to Unavailable.
2. Save the Changes
3. Log out and log back in
4. Create a Test Suite with a few Test Cases
5. Run the Test Suite. Set each of the Test Case results to Unavailable
6. Browse the TCER's and verify the results are set to Unavailable
7. Run the “TSER using Test Case Count (Live)” Report".
8. Note that the column names and Graphs do not reflect the modifications done to the execution states
This behavior is identified as a product defect

In a very typical scenario, To create a test, many testers currently sit at a PC and alternate between completing an action in the application under test and writing the step on a notepad. When the test is complete on paper, the tester (or in some cases an administrative assistant for the testing group) types the steps into a standard test template, frequently using either Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. Following this procedure, a single manual test is essentially written twice.
Eliminating the need to write each test twice can save you time for other testing.
In addition to writing tests twice, much time is spent adapting existing tests for similar new tests. For example, a tester might create a test to log into the application under test as an administrator, and then adapt that test to log into the application under test as a regular user. This adaptation typically takes one of two forms:
• Open the existing test, edit steps as needed, and save the test with a new filename.
• Open a new test template, copy steps from the existing test, edit steps as needed, and save the new test.
Reducing duplication among many tests reduces the time you spend maintaining test scripts.
Testers typically receive many new software builds during a development cycle, often at an increasingly rapid rate toward the end of the cycle.
When a build contains a new feature or a fix that requires modifying the steps of a test, all of the tests that relate to the new feature or fix must be updated to reflect the change in the application under test. Although this update process is not difficult to manage when only a few tests require updating, when dozens (or hundreds) of tests are affected by changes to a commonly used area of the application under test, such as a login screen, updating can be very time-consuming. Eliminating or reducing the work that is required to keep many tests up to date can save you time for additional testing.
As you increase the efficiency of your testing effort, you can use the saved time to conduct additional tests. Rational Quality Manager can help you work more efficiently in each of the testing activities:
• Creating tests: Rational Quality Manager helps you to manage reusable content and use it in similar tests. As a result, you spend less time authoring tests.
• Running tests: Rational Quality Manager associates text to be typed in the application under test with an execution step. Rational Quality Manager also associates verification text with a test step, and then compares the comparison. Rational Quality Manager provides test data variables so that you can define a test once and run it many times to accommodate different data input values. These features save you time typing in the application under test, comparing actual to expected results, and testing different data values.
• Reporting test results: Rational Quality Manager provides customizable reports that reflect test result data from all phases of the project. These reports save time that you would have spent manually tabulating test results for reporting.
• Maintaining tests: Rational Quality Manager reduces the amount of required test maintenance by storing reusable content only once. As a result, you spend less time updating many similar tests.
IBM Rational Quality Manager: Execution variable displays deleted when execution status is changed from Approved to re-open

Under IBM Rational Quality Manager v4.0.3 , say you have added a few execution variables and these variables are assigned to Test Steps for a given Test Case.
Modified date: Mar 25, 2015 1:19:33 PM
From the UI perspective; the Execution Variables are still associated with each of the steps; however, the Execution Variables View is empty. So basically there are two issues here.
