Cross-app Features

Within each workspace, Squash TM allows you to perform general actions on the objects consultation page.

Modifying Object Fields

Every Squash TM object has various attributes that are represented in fields of different types. When you hover on a field's value, a visual indicator shows you that it can be modified either through an underlined value, a pencil icon, or a color frame.

To modify an attribute, click on the field's value, enter a new value, and validate your entry ([Confirm] button or [Enter] key)

Here are the app's different types of fields:

  • Simple text: unformatted text on a single line;
  • Checkbox;
  • Date: allows you to select a date in the calendar or to enter it manually in a dd/mm/yyyy format;
  • Drop-down menu;
  • Numerical field;
  • Tag: allows you to enter one or multiple values in tag format, with autocompletion;
  • Rich text: formatted text on several lines.

Tables Operating

Links between items (Requirements-Requirements, Requirements-Test cases, Execution plan-Test case) are formalized in tables. If the user has the authorization, they can:

  • add a linking via the button Ajouter
  • search for one or multiple objects and link them via the button Loupe
  • delete a linking via the button Supprimer l'association available at the end of each row;
  • delete multiple selected linkings via the button Supprimer les associations available on top of the table;
  • access level 2 of an object page by clicking on a link on the object's name.

The tables are sorted by default. You can modify the sorting by clicking on the column's heading. The arrow pointing up indicates an alphabetical or chronological sorting, and the arrow pointing down a reverse sorting.

Table d'association

Info

You can apply filters on an execution plan's table by clicking on the icon [Filtre] Filtre of the columns.

Linking/Unlinking Objects

Squash TM allows you to link objects: two requirements, a requirements to a test case, or a test case to an execution plan. There are 3 ways to link objects:

Linking Two Requirements Using the Requirements Workspace Library

On a requirement's consultation page, you can, via a drag and drop, link a library requirement to the requirement you are viewing. These requirements then appear in their respective Linked Requirements columns.

Linking Two Objects Using the Linking Library

On the consultation page of a requirement, test case, or execution plan, you can access the linking library by clicking on the table's button Ajouter You can link the two objects via a drag and drop from the linking library to the consulted object. The links then appear in their matching column.

Linking Two Objects Using the Search Function

From a linking table, a Test case verifying this requirement, Requirements verified by this test case, or an Execution plan, the button Rechercher allows you to search for objects: all or some of the results can be linked via the buttons Link selection and Link all.

Associer la recherche

Info

In an Execution plan, it is possible to access the direct search function and the test case search function via their requirements. The search feature is based on the requirements criteria. The results it shows are the test cases linked to requirements that match the chosen criteria.

Unlinking Objects

In Squash TM's different tables, you can delete a link via the button Supprimer les associations available at the end of each line for a simple unlinking or via the button Supprimer les associations available on the top of the table for a multiple unlinking (using a multiple selection).

Adding/Deleting an Attachment

Adding an Attachment

On the consultation page of an object (folder, requirements, test cases, test steps, campaign, iteration or suite), you can add attachements via the icon icone pièce-jointe. Then, drag and drop your attachment in the dedicated box from your local files.

Ajout de pièce jointe

This section allows you to consult the attachments information (name, size, and date added), and to download them.

Info

By default, accepted files types are: txt, doc, xls, ppt, docx, xlsx, pptx, odt, ods, odp, pdf. This list can be modified by an Admin to add or delete extensions. By default, the maximum size for an attachment is 400000 bytes. This size can also be modified by an Admin.

Deleting an Attachment

In the attachments section, you can delete attachments via the button Poubelle available at the end of each line.

Searching for an Object

By clicking on the button icone Rechercher available on the top of Requirements, Test cases, and Campaigns libraries, you can open a search page that is unique to each workspace. By default, the search perimeter is the one of the project filter.

The section on the left of the results page allows you to define a search perimeter and to add search criteria that are specific to the workspace's objects.

Perimeter

In the perimeter criteria's Project tab, you can select the projects you want to include or exclude from the perimeter.

The Custom tab allows you to select one or multiple directories to define the search perimeter.

Clicking on the button [New search] reinitiates the search criteria.

Modifying attributes

Through a simple or multiple selection, you can mass modify certain attributes by clicking on the button Modifier les attributs:

  • a requirement version's status, criticality, or category;

Exporting

By clicking on the button Exporter, you can export all or some of the results. There are several options:

  • the "All fields" XLS format allows you:
    • to recover the entirety of requirements or case tests data by exporting it to an Excel spreadsheet;
    • to keep rich text format: "rich text" fields are exported with their HTML tags so that they can keep their formatting during a future import. Not keeping this format allows you to facilitate the reading of fields during the export;
    • to include or not include called tests (only for the Test Cases workspace).
