Exporting from excel - custom defined fields

Monday, April 15, 2013

I am in the process of moving from excel spreadsheet based test plans to Spiratest.  I am able to export folders, test cases and test steps but haven't figured out how to deal with special fields. 

I have defined 2 custom properties of test cases in the project I'm exporting to.  Both custom properties are booleans (Automatable and Regression).  I tried using the TEXT-xx fields in the SpiraImportTemplate.xlsx but the values I entered didn't go anywhere that I could find in Spiratest.

How can I populate the custom properties during the export process from excel?

Hi Tom

The Excel Add-In is backwards compatible with Spira v3.x and therefore is only capable of importing text and list fields, not some of the newer types introduced in v4.0 (Boolean, user, numeric, etc.).

We will be releasing an updated Excel add-in later this year.
