Folder Object

Applies to QAComplete 14.4, last modified on May 20, 2024

A Folder object represents a folder in QAComplete’s project navigator. Users use folders to organize defects, tests and other items.

Using QAComplete SOAP API, you can add, list, update, and delete the folders. To do this, the web service user must be in a security group that has the Read, Add, Update, and Delete permissions for Folder Maintenance in the appropriate area (Defects, Agile Tasks and so on). You can view and set these privileges in  > Setup > Security > Security Groups > Manage Security Rights.
