3.9.  Traceability Views

If you have set up and activated an Integration, Squish Test Center will add it in the header menu of the Explore or History view. Clicking one of these will take you to the respective traceability view for that integration.

Integration Menus

If you haven't fetched external projects or mapped them to Squish Test Center projects, the traceability view will greet you with a warning that leads to the Global Settings page for this integration.

[Note]Note

You have to be an administrator to set up integrations and mappings to foreign projects. Mapping individual items on the traceability page however can be performed by any user.

Missing project associations message

After setting up project associations for your integration, you can fetch mappable items (requirements, tests, etc.) of those projects by clicking the Pull button on the traceability page. Your traceability view should now contain the fetched items from your external system. The traceability table will contain items from the external system on the left and associated Squish Test Center tests on the right. The status of each external item shown on the left is an accumulation of the results of each of the associated tests that were executed in the currently selected batch. Right now there are no associations made, so the table will look relatively uninteresting.

[Note]Note

The generic traceability might already contain the elements that have been uploaded in the Global Settings. Additional items can be added by clicking the Add Item button.

Traceability table without associations

Mapping an integration item to Squish Test Center tests can be done by clicking the Edit button next to it in the Mapping column. After clicking on the Edit button of an item from your integration, you will see a popup in which you can associate Squish Test Center tests by selecting them. You can also select multiple tests from the project you are currently viewing. Clicking on a test below Associations will remove/disassociate it. Click on Apply if you are happy with your current mapping to save it.

Traceability item mapping popup

Finally, a traceability view filled with associated items will look something like this:

To export the associated test results of the current batch to your external system, press the Push button. If everything works, you should get a notification saying that the push operation was completed.

You can also export the current mapping and test results in a CSV format to download on to your machine. Select either Export as CSV List or Export as CSV Matrix depending on your preference.
