How to "find and replace" content in a manual test script

Technote (FAQ)


How do you search and replace text in a manual test script, when the same text appears in more than one step in IBM Rational Quality Manager (RQM)?


You want to modify the existing text in a test script in multiple steps.


You have ten scripts. Each script contains ten steps. If you modify all the steps in all the scripts, you manually need to edit 100 steps.


Currently, the RQM user interface does not contain this function.


Use the "RQM Reportable API",

  1. Use the REST API GET to find the script's XML.

  2. Find and replace text in the test script XML.

  3. PUT the updated test script XML.

For more information see the following document.
