Silk Central Feature Requests

  1. Using paramaters are painful.

    SCTM should support auto parsing params in the paper test and automatically passing them to the automation testcase.

  2. Select List (cascading) field from JIRA not supported

    Support Incident: 2879672.

    We want to link Silk Central with Jira Server. In our Jira projects we have custom fields, which are selecting list (e.g. to select an OS, first you select Windows then you get all the existing Windows environment). When we want to create a new issue from Silk to Jira, when we have to use the cascading fields, Silk always gives an error. We are then unable to create the issue as these fields are also mandatory fields.

  3. Export tests to Excel - Option to decide whether or not the HTML tags should be exported

    When tests are exported to Excel, the formatting data are also exported for future import. As is, the exported data are difficult to read and to manage within Excel. It is requested to be able to decide whether or not the formatting data (HTML tags) should be exported with the test data.

  5. Update Rational tool integration RRP and CQ with Composer and Team Concert via OSLC (#2640780)

    Update the out-of-the-box Requirement integration and Defect Management integration with the new version of Rational tool (Rational Composer and Team Concert), that are using the Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) http://open-services.net/.
    The current integration with Requisite Pro and ClearQuest are coming (or are yet) obsoled.
    There are also some external companies that offers plugins, with SCTM seems not covered.
    It can be a precious integration update, if not due by paied maintenance.
    Thanks

  6. Ability to create complex filter questies with using multiple "AND" and/or "OR"

    Now to create filter that mixes up "OR" and "AND" queries required to create one or more filters that will be used as Nested and then mix them one into high level filters.
    This make creating filters for projects with 200+ components too hard and number of them grows exponentially.
    Will be good to have more productive filtering to be able to create workflow executions related to multiple "Components" based on both data-driven and usual cases with multiple assigned attributes without need of "Nested" filters.

  7. Last test result and linked defect status split into manual test interface

    Last test result and linked defect status split into manual test interface
    During the manual test execution the tester continuosly need to know, for the test in execution:
    - if there are some currently OPEN defects and for which severety
    - which is the last (previous) test result (Failed, Passed)
    That information can drive the tester to work better and faster to identify duplicate defect and regression status.

  8. At the history tab of the issue inbox name of the actor should be view

    At the history tab of an issue, inbox name of the actor should be viewed, as well as login name of the actor. Because our users use ldap users for login, and ldap user is just an id. In the history tab of the issue, when they see this id, in order to know who is the actor, they should know the ldap user id of the user by hard.... However while defining the inbox, we use name and surname in the inbox name. In the history tab such an info will be very useful to know who is the…

    The LDAP server must verify in an indepentent branch for the specific application that the user exists there.

  10. Sort items alphabetically

    Sorting items (esp. testcases and their folders) is painful in SCTM. Even if I can drag and drop items in SCTM 17, I often wish items would automatically be sorted alphabetically.
    This could be solved by a click on a button or by a setting of the parent folder (e.g. "always sort items below alphabetically")

  12. Capture screenshots/videos during Test case creation

    Silk Central has the capability to capture screenshots or record videos during manual test.

    The same capability wold be great if available during test case creation. You can currently attach files to a test case or step, in many instances that file is a screenshot or video that currently we need to capture or record separately and then attach.

    Since the functionality is already part of Silk Central, why don't you add the capture buttons in the Test case creation UI as well?

    Thanks,

    Gabriele

  13. Use LDAP as user directory back-end - not just for authentication

    Currently, SCTM is capable of using LDAP for authenticating users. However, one is still required to add the user(s) that should be able to log in to SCTM manually to SCTM.
    This is simply not a viable solution when dealing with more than, say, 20 users, or when you have new users requesting access frequently - the administration burden becomes too high.
    Also, it is not enterprise class.

    Instead, SCTM should allow one to set up LDAP connectivity so that one can allow all users that match a specific search criteria to be added as users to SCTM. Access rights…

  14. Could the the SilkCentral import feature be enhanced?

    At the moment the mapping file can only map one spreadsheet cell into a corresponding field in SilkCentral.
    It would be a nice feature to have the possibility to concatenate the contents of multiple Excel cells into one (via the use of Logical AND e.g. &&) at time of extraction before storing the result in the corresponding SilkCentral field.

  15. Ability to use data driven properties for a Test Package

    Suggested through case 2579730

    Ability to use data driven properties for a Test Package.

    This feature would be extremely useful as it would provide less overhead for executing many tests with various data.

    Tests that fail would not prevent the remaining tests from continuing to execute.

  16. Embed screenshots to allow them to be minimised/maximised on Manual Test Results

    The feature to allow embedded screenshots on the Manual Test Results page has been implemented for SCTM 16.0, it would be useful to have a feature to allow these screenshots to be minimised/maximised, possibly through a check box to either display the image on the results page or not.

  17. Embed screenshots on Manual Test Results page with image types other than .png

    The feature to allow embedded screenshots on the Manual Test Results page has been implemented for SCTM 16.0, the workaround only allows for .png images. it would be useful to have a feature to allow this to support other image types also such as .jpg and .bmp.

  18. Bulk Search to show grid view

    Similar to the Global Project search, can we have a grid view added for the Bulk Search dialog.

    There are times when we want to see available matches without walking the Tree structure. It would be nice to present a Grid View like the global search which also has a nice print option.

  19. Ability to set a value for a test custom attribute when creating the test

    Currently there are different behaviours in SCTM with regards to custom test attributes and custom requirement properties management.

    When you define a custom requirement property for your project you can immediately input a value for it when you create a requirement.

    However for custom test attributes, you need first to add the custom attribute to a test in order to be able to input a value.

    The customer would like to be able to set a value for a custom test attribute when they create the test.

    Requested through support incident #2637806

  20. Better privileges for Deletion and better test cases deletion management

    Hi,

    We have this problem. We created a new Test Container folder with a lot of test cases into it.

    Another user, by mistake deleted the Test Container and we lost all the data.

    I think at the test cases level, there should be a way not to physically delete information but delete it logically so it can be retrieved or officially deleted at a later time by a higher privileges user.

    In addition, deletion privileges should be separate and divided by object type, I can have some testers dial with test cases and be able to delete them but…
