TeamForge 16.7 and later releases support integration only with TestLink 1.9.15 and later. If you are on earlier versions of TestLink, upgrade to TestLink 1.9.15 and later and integrate it with TeamForge. This integration does not provide backward compatibility (Data reliability and Migration) to older TeamForge-TestLink 1.9.11 integration that is based on TeamForge’s Integrated Application Framework (IAF).
The TeamForge-TestLink Integration Plugin,
collabnet-testlink-1.0.2.jar, supports integration with Testlink v1.9.15 and v1.9.16.
TeamForge 18.3 supports integration with TestLink 1.9.15 and later to track and synchronize requirement and defect tracker artifacts between these two systems.
The TeamForge-TestLink integration has two primary touch points:
- Requirements (TeamForge) to Test Suites (TestLink)
Test Case Run Failures (TestLink) to Defects (TeamForge)
Here is a sample workflow to illustrate these touch points:
- Map TeamForge and TestLink projects The first step is to establish a project mapping between the intended TeamForge and TestLink projects. During mapping, in TestLink you’ll be able to specify the TeamForge “Requirements” and “Defects” trackers for your project. These trackers will be used throughout the workflow.
Create Requirements and Test Suites When a requirement artifact is created in the TeamForge tracker specified in Step 1, you will be given the opportunity to create a matching “Test Suite” in TestLink straight from the artifact creation screen in TeamForge.
- Populate Test Suite with Test Cases Within TestLink you can find and populate your Test Suite with Test Cases.
- Run Test Cases against Builds Once the Test Cases have been defined, you can run them against desired builds, tracking results in TestLink. Test Case runs are associated to the build/binary being tested for traceability purposes.
Create Defects for failed Test Case runs If you encounter failing Test Case runs, you have the option to click a button inside TestLink to create a defect in TeamForge. This is a “push button” defect that opens a new TeamForge window pre-populated with Test Case run failure data. An association will be created between the failing Test Case run and the new Defect.
Visualize Traceability Once this cycle is complete, you can view the associations chain between Test Case runs and any associated defects, the Builds or Binaries they exercised, the Commits which originated the Build, and ultimately the Requirements that started it all.
