  3. Select the Test Case Importer menu item
  4. Follow the Setup Page section instructions

Setup Page

Provide the basic settings for the importation process.


titlePlease note

The "Test Repository Path" is case insensitive and each folder is trimmed (spaces are removed from the start/end of it).

This means that "components/compA", "components /compA", and " components/COMPA" are all the same and will be mapped to the same folder within the Test Repository.

If the folder is not found, then the Test is created, but it is not associated with any folder; it will appear in the "Orphans" meta-folder. Unless you selected the option 'Create Folders', in the Setup page.

To create new folders and sub-folders, in case they do not exist in the Test Repository, you must select the option 'Create Folders' in the Setup page of the Test Case importer.

Make sure you have the Hierarchical Test Organization enabled and the logged in user belongs to a Project Role allowed to edit the Test Repository. You can check this settings under the Xray Global Settings.

Image Added

You can import a link to other issues for newly-created Tests by choosing the "Link ..." mapping.
