TestLink Import / Export File Format

Post by MrBricodage »

Hello,

according to http://forum.testlink.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=7121, the only supported format for Import/Export is XML.
The TL documentation (tl-file-formats) is not updated since 4 march 2010, and still explain how to import from XML, XLS, CSV, CSV Doors and DocBook.

What about a doc update to provide more detailed information bu only about XML file format ?

I can do it because with the excel tool (http://mantis.testlink.org/view.php?id=4945), I know TL XML format pretty well (I just need to learn about the 2 new "duration" fields that I haven't implemented yet in Excel).

Let me know, cause I don't want to do something useless or already planned by somebody else.

Regards,

IMHO format is simple enough that documentation can be missed.
Anyway if you find someone ready to give back helping with documentation, it will be great.

IMHO, this doc need to be updated with (at least) new XML tags handled by TestLink (<estimated_exec_duration> and <execution_duration>) that are not listed today.
i saw that testcases can now be created from issues (Mantis XML). The filetype "Mantis XML" should be defined in this file (because this file is pointed as format explanation)

I have the tl-file-formats.odt file, I'll push a updated version ASAP in gitorious.
