Quick Start

Follow these steps to get up and running in 10 minutes

1. Configure ReadyAPI/SoapUI project

Start ReadyAPI/SoapUI and lets configure your first project. To do so, right click on your project and select "Dragonfly: (Un)Initialize project":

project configuration

and click on "Yes" button in confirmation screen:

project configuration

Now Dragonfly adds all required custom properties to your project, test suites and test cases.
To remove them, just click on "Dragonfly: (Un)Initialize project" again and it will clear all Dragonfly related properties from your project.

The highlighted properties below are required and must be configured to reflect your ALM environment settings. project configuration

2. Export Project

Export ReadyAPI project into ALM. Simply right click the project and select Dragonfly: Export to HP ALM. Dragonfly plugin will show a progress bar and live export status in the Dragonfly tab.

Export to ALM action can also be invoked from the ReadyAPI testsuite or testcase. Project action will export/update the entire project. Whereas, testsuite or testcase level actions will only export/update the specified testsuite and testcase respectively.

Intelligent Export

users don't have to worry about manually creating any of the QC_TestPlanDirectory, QC_TestLabDirectory, or QC_TestSet. Dragonfly is smart enough to figure this out and create it automatically at run time.

3. Validate Export

The ReadyAPI tests should now be visible in the specified TestPlan directory.

4b. Run tests from HP ALM

To run the tests from HP ALM Testlab, create a testset and add tests cases to the testset just like you would when running HP UFT, QTP, etc.

HP ALM Host setup requirements

When running ReadyAPI tests from HP ALM, the tests will run on some set of hosts selected by the user. The user must make sure that these hosts have all the necessary setup: ReadyAPI, dragonfly, licenses, and the ReadyAPI project.

TestLab path and Testset name in project custom properties

Make sure that the path you create in Testlab is the same path that is specified in your ReadyAPI project properties.
