RQM - Linking UNC
In the various locations you can define a link to a web-page. For example:
- Sections of a Test Plan / Case
- Steps in Test Script
It's possible to reference a
UNC path. Because this is not a stardard option for webbrowsers you need some additional
settings. This has nothing to do with RQM, it's basic browser customization.
This will explain how to reference the UNC:
To validate access you should be able to enter the location in the address-bar:
Now you can create a basic HTML page with the follow source line:
For correct testing this page should be accessed via http/https.
When you select the URL without any additional settings to the browsers, it should not work.
Create a user.js file in the directory:
Add your own webserver url (with port!) which can be trusted.
user_pref("capability.policy.localfilelinks.sites", "http://intranet http://localhost http://wiki https://business.vanlint5.nl:9443 http://clm.jkebanking.net:9443 ");
These line are copied into pref.js when FF restart.
When you restart FF and access the HTML-page (using http(s)) you can now select your test url.
- Select Tools
- Select Internet Options
- Select Security Tab
- Select Trusted Sites icon
- Select Sites button
- Keyin your site file://longtimearchiveserver and
- Select Add
When you restart IE and access the HTML-page (using http(s)) you can now select your test url.
There are several locations where you can enter free text, including a link:
Now you can enter your file URL (as stated above):
To open a new window you might want to set the Target:
Select Preview (to exit the editor)
Select LongTimeArchive link
If you want you can edit the visible text of the link into only "LongTimeArchive" or something more appropriate.
In FF a new tab will be opened,
IE a File-Explorer will open.
Now you can add the same link in the 'Related Sites'.
