Associating a functional test project with a Rational project

If you want to use Rational TestManager to manage your tests, associate a functional test project with a Rational project.


Before you begin

You must create a Rational project using Rational Administrator before you associate a functional test project with a Rational project so that TestManager can gain access to the functional test project. When you create a Functional Test project, you can associate it with an existing Rational project at that time.

You can only associate a Functional Test project with a Rational project if it is currently not associated with any other project. To associate a project with a different project, first disassociate the project from the project to which it is currently associated.

To associate an existing Functional Test project with a Rational project:


Procedure

  1. Start Functional Tester and log in to a Rational project.

  2. From the Functional Tester Projects view, right-click a Functional Test project, and click Associate with current Rational Project.

    If Associate with current Rational Project is unavailable, create a Rational project and log in to the Rational project before you associate a Functional Test project with the current Rational project.Associate with current Rational Project is available only if you have administrative privileges with the project.

    Functional Tester adds the name of the Rational project that you associate with a Functional Test project to the name of the Functional Test project in the Functional Tester Projects view. For example, if you associate MyFTProject with the MyRationalProject Rational project, it appears in the Functional Tester Projects view as: MyFTProject - MyRationalProject
