6. Configuring Testing

Administrators can configure Test Management features both globally for the repository to create a default configuration, and in any project to override global defaults and create a custom configuration for the project.

This configuration specifies mapping of test cases to a configured Work Item type, parameters for automated testing, and how Polarion imports results of external testing tools. It also specifies the values for several enumerations which appear in various lists in different configuration fields. You can configure:

Accessing the Configuration

To access the testing configuration:

  1. Log in with administrator permissions for the scope you want to configure (repository/global or project).

  2. Enter Administration (if your login does not take you into Administration).

  3. Open the repository or project you wish to configure (see User Guide: Accessing Projects).

  4. In Navigation, expand the Testing node to expose the testing configuration topics.
