Using uPerform Test Scripts for HP Quality Center Testing – Learning Series Demo Now Available!

By John Joseph

Are you utilizing HP Quality Center in your project? Did you know can increase your team’s productivity by using uPerform to create test cases? Using new or existing recordings, your subject matter experts are able to create test cases without the need to be trained on Quality Center. And, with uPerform version 5.0 or greater, using task assignments and the Rapid Recorder means that subject matter experts need only a basic understanding of creating a uPerform recording to be able to quickly and easily document the steps required for a new test case with a minimum investment of time and effort required.

What is HP Quality Center?

Quality Center is a component of the HP Application Lifecycle Management suite providing a comprehensive test management tool for software implementation projects. Organizations use Quality Center to manage software development testing and defect resolution through consistent, repeatable processes for gathering requirements, planning and scheduling tests, analyzing results, and managing defects and issues. Quality Center supports automated test tools such as WinRunner and LoadRunner.

How can uPerform recordings be used to create Quality Center test cases?

The free HP Excel Add-In creates an easy to use integration point between ANCILE uPerform and Quality Center. Test Scripts are published locally on the author’s computer by simply checking the Test Scripts output box in the publishing selection screen. The test script published output is an Excel XML formatted file listing the recorded steps and a file location that contains the image captured in each step. These steps and images are formatted for uploading to Quality Center using the Excel step-by-step Wizard included in the HP Add-In. With very little training, your authors can now create and upload test cases with screenshots directly into Quality Center, saving hours, and ensuring the right things are being tested. Testers enjoy having a screen shot specific to the test step for clarity and full understanding of the expected results.
