Labs: New Import Syntax
This lab allows you to import multiple types in one file as well as test case steps. These features are not available currently in CA Agile Central.
Once enabled, users can use this new import option from the Test Cases page.
Import multiple types in one file
This requires an Object Type column. The value should be the type name of what you’re importing, such as Test Case, Test Case Step, etc.
For any properties that are not applicable to a particular object type, add a blank value.
Associate a test case step to a test case on a previous line
In the Test Case column, use the line syntax to indicate that you want to refer to the object created at line 2.
There are two options for importing test case steps into an existing test case.
Option 1 - copy the Formatted ID of the new test case
After you create and save a new test case, copy its Formatted ID. Create a CSV using that formatted ID for your Test Case Steps. Choose that file for import, and when it's completed, you will notice that your newly created test case now has test case steps.
Use the Formatted ID of the Test Case in the Test Case column.
Option 2 - use the WSAPI reference
Alternatively, you can use the WSAPI reference of the test case in the Test Case column.
