TestCases_Update Operation

Applies to QAComplete 12.94 SaaS, last modified on December 06, 2021
This topic relates to the legacy Test Cases screen that provided basic test management functionality and was replaced with Test Management.
Starting from release 9.7.0, this functionality is obsolete and is supported only for backward compatibility.

Replaces the test case information with that from the specified TestCase object. Uninitialized properties are cleared.

First, you usually call TestCases_Load to get a test case by ID, change some of its properties, and then pass the updated object to TestCases_Update.

Requirements

The authenticating user must belong to a user group that has the Update privilege for Test Cases.

Parameters

The operation uses the following parameters:

AuthenticationData  :  AuthenticationData, required

An AuthenticationData object containing the login information and the project ID that contains the test case.

TestCase  :  TestCase, required

A TestCase object that represents test case with updated properties.

SendEmailAlert  :  string, required

Y means send an email alert to the subscribed users after updating the test case.

Any other value (for example, N or empty string) means do not send email alerts.

Result

None.

Remarks

The TestCase object has matching Id and Name properties, for example, FolderId and FolderName. To set them, specify the value only for the Id property. The corresponding Name property will be set automatically.

Example

Sample Code

C#

string login = "john.doe@example.com";
string password = "p@ssword";
int projID = 10372;

// Specifying the test case to update
int ID = 156;

ServiceSoapClient service = new ServiceSoapClient();

// Preparing AuthenticationData
LoginInfo loginInfo = service.GetLoginInfo("", login, password);
AuthenticationData authData = new AuthenticationData();
authData.AppCode = loginInfo.AppCode;
authData.UserId = loginInfo.UserId;
authData.PassCode = password;
authData.DeptId = loginInfo.DeptId;
authData.ProjId = projID;

// Loading the test case
TestCase testCase = service.TestCases_Load(authData, ID);

// Updating properties of the test case
testCase.StatusCode = "Failed";
testCase.ActualResults = "The offering are not displayed.";

// Updating the test case
service.TestCases_Update(authData, testCase, "N", "Y");
Console.WriteLine("Test case was updated");

Java

String login = "john.doe@example.com";
String password = "p@ssword";
int projID = 10372;

// Specifying the test case to update
int ID = 13;

ServiceSoap service = new Service().getServiceSoap12();

// Preparing AuthenticationData
LoginInfo loginInfo = service.getLoginInfo("", login, password);
AuthenticationData authData = new AuthenticationData();
authData.setAppCode(loginInfo.getAppCode());
authData.setUserId(loginInfo.getUserId());
authData.setPassCode(password);
authData.setDeptId(loginInfo.getDeptId());
authData.setProjId(projID);

// Loading the test case
TestCase testCase = service.testCasesLoad(authData, ID);

// Updating properties of the test case
testCase.setStatusCode("Failed");
testCase.setActualResults("The offering are not displayed.");

// Updating the test case
service.testCasesUpdate(authData, testCase, "N", "Y");
System.out.format("Test case was updated");
