Testopia 2.4

Testopia 2.4 with support for Bugzilla 3.6 is now available. As always, please back up your data before attempting to install or update.

Wow, congratulations!! :-)

Ameer said...

Greg, Great Job on putting this all together.. Will there be any documentation for users to upgrade from the current 2.3 to 2.4. Since we have to upgrade the instance of Bugzilla first (3.4.6 to 3.6.1) and apply Testopia patch on top of it.

Thanks a lot

Fabulous! Thank you!

Greg Hendricks said...

Upgrade steps are:
1. reverse the patch
2. delete the testopia folder in the extensions directory.
3. upgrade Bugzilla
4. unzip testopia 2.4
5. apply the patch.
6. run checksetup

The only change from past upgrades is removing the old testopia folder. Also, if you have any customizations, you will want to merge those first.

Hi Greg,
after upgrade from bz 3.4.6 and testopia 2.3 I get the following error message:
"invalid bug attribute get_test_case_count"

DB corrections and all other upgrade messages from were ok..

Any ideas?
Greetings, Thommie

Thomas said...

sorry I forgot: Upgrade TO bz 3.6.1 and testopia 2.4

Thomas said...

Hi Greg,
forget my comment, I fixed it. It was my fault, I forgot the patching of the bz files

bye, Thommie

First, many thanks for 3.6.x support.
I however have a problem and haven't figured it out:
When I load tr_importer.cgi via the browser I get a compilation error"
"Died at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/ line 85.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/XML/Validator/Schema/ line 16.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/XML/Validator/ line 489."
Any idea why this is occurring?

Greg Hendricks said...

I have never seen this error before. What version of XML::Validator::Schema are you running? Have you considered upgrading your Perl to 5.10?

Ben said...

I have upgraded from Bugzilla/Testopia 3.4.4/2.3 to 3.6.2/2.4 without any problems. Thank you very much!

(Running WinXP/Apache 2.2/Perl 5.8.8)

Tried it once again (as I am constantly looking for some test management tool integrated with Bugzilla) and unfortunately still unusable to me:
- Still slow
- No undo
- Still unstable, gives SQL request error from time to time (this may be a setup issue, not sure)
- Some design flaws, after using for several minutes you already see that things like list and enumeration do not work correctly in the text areas
- No export, import and backup functionality

Will try again though when new version is released. :)

Disappointing release for one substantial reason: Export and Import of test cases into test plans is still fundamentally broken.

I'm wondering what logic it is that EXPORT of test cases into a CSV type file exports the cases into a format that is incompatible with the IMPORT function.

If you have a table of test cases that you need to do a bulk update to, it is substantially faster to export the cases as a CSV file so you can do a bulk edit.

problem is: when you do that Export, the resulting CSV file CANNOT BE READ by Testopia on the subsequent IMPORT. The headers are different.

A moderation of my earlier frustrated complaint:

if CSV import requires optional modules to be present: don't even present the CSV options if the modules aren't present.

Thomas said...

How do I use this custom panel? I have a requirements document on a wiki (which has a URL, of course). I slapped that URL in the pop up window but it just spins forever without resolve. Is there something I am missing? I am using BZ 3.6.3 with Testopia 2.4 on unix.


Greg Hendricks said...

Are you getting any javascript errors?

Mike said...

When can we expect a Bugzilla 4.0 compatible version?

Jaswant said...

I need your help to figure out the following issue with Testopia 2.4.

The testopia reports hangs for
all tabs except TestPlan.

I have a question regarding the Products tree in the Products Dashboard. How do you add and modify and add folders in the tree? Currently I see Classifications and Unclassified.

Greg Hendricks said...

Products and classifications are managed in Bugzilla's settings. Add products and turn on Classifications if you want to see more folders.

skeptical said...

Thanks for the quick reply. I have another question. I currently have bugzilla 3.6.6 and testopia 2.4 running. When navigating to the Product Dashboard>Reports>Tabular Reports and click on Case Search, Run Search, and Case-Run Search I get the following:

Case Search

Bad argument param sent to Bugzilla::Extension::Testopia::TestCase::new function

Run Search

Bad argument param sent to Bugzilla::Extension::Testopia::TestRun::new function.

Case-Run Search

Bad argument param sent to Bugzilla::Extension::Testopia::TestRun::new function.

Plan Search works fine.

Greg Hendricks said...

Try a search of the mailing lists, I believe this issue was reported and a workaround posted out there. I don't recall now what it was now.

James Sanchez said...

Looked around the mailing list and no luck locating the resolution. Same errors on the Search and Report tabs in the Product Dashboard.

James Sanchez said...

Found it! Works like a charm now.

Matthew Arguin said...

I realize this post is getting a bit old, but i had the same situation, used the same resolution posted above, then found that my 'status' and 'priority' tabs on the 'Case Search' tab were both blank and not being populated, curious if anyone else in this thread also saw that.

Gajanand Sharma said...

Does Testopia 2.4 support Bugzilla 3.6.9 ???

donamit said...

Hey Matthew Arguin,

I'm facing the same issue. Let me know if you were able to resolve it...Thanks!

donamit said...

The following links show how the problem can be resolved! No need for the earlier workarounds :)
