Special characters in parameter name replacement in HP QC / ALM export

Parameter name→value replacement in test case name and test case description fields of the HP QC / ALM export was not working properly if the parameter name contained certain special characters (a classic pairwise defect).

Thanks to Kavya for reporting the issue.

Issue where export dialog allowed an export request exporting without a file format selected



Issues with reviewing passed quizzes on Chrome

A 2-way error, browser specific.


June 1, 2017


Unable to move between questions when reviewing a prior quiz that you passed.

Chrome specific, so a 2-way defect.



Numeric range values that are replacements for conflicting any values choices were not expanding

A relatively rare 3-way defect in production. To trigger the issue you needed a test case with any “any value” that was then replaced with a value that happened to cause a value pair constraint violation so was then replaced with a value that happened to be a range. In this case, the range stayed as is and was not changed to a value within the numeric range.



Another issue with quiz images

Thawing test cases preserver prior requirements

If you have some requirements, then freeze your test cases, and later need to thaw the test cases, your required test cases are preserved. Your prior required test cases will then contain a value for all parameters, but they will no longer be removed completely when you thaw.

Error when completing quizzes

This was a recent regression.



Autoscript parameter name auto-completion is now case insensitive

Duplicate requirement warning repeated when changing requirement name or expected result

It’s true the requirement is still duplicated, but the second warning is difficult to understand since all you doing is changing the name or expected result.



Missing hint images in quizzes



Overly constrained message in Excel export plan scorecard

This message didn’t match the web plan scorecard and the web plan scorecard was correct.

Thanks to new intern Scott for this, his first bug fix of the summer!



Special characters in truncated notes and value expansion tooltips

A classic pairwise defect, only happened when there was both special characters in the tooltip and a tooltip long enough note for truncation. Either case on its own worked with no problem.

Missing message w/ invalid mixed-strength tests

If a mixed-strength test case generation was requested with the re-apply button and an insufficient number of parameters were selected for the highest selected strength (3 for 3-way or 4 for 4-way, etc.) then the error message was missing and instead there was a blank panel.

This was a regression that started when we added the enhanced, searchable and sortable test case table.

Thanks to Ryan for reporting this bug via chat.

Special character in requirement name during Excel export

This was a 3-way defect: you had to have auto-scripts in your test plan, have a less than < character in your requirement name, and be exporting to Excel.

Thanks to Pam for reporting the issue!

Can’t specify mixed-strengths when there are more than 500 test cases

This was a classic pairwise defect that is only triggered for the pairing of multi-strength and > 500 test cases.

Handling very long parameter names and values in generated test case table

Very long parameter names and values are now truncated (with a tooltip to see the whole value) to save space when displaying generated test cases.
