  • When a data hiding filter is propagated from a template to a linked project for a group that is a template group, an error message is displayed when the user accesses the test plan module.

What’s been enhanced?

  • Service Test Management is certified for Microsoft MSSQL 2008 SP2.

  • A new parameter for controlling the size of the attachments is now available
  • The following environments are now certified:

    • Business Process Testing and Service Test 11.2 were on Windows Vista SP2 32bit as a client.
  • For example a test might cover 5 requirements in 5 different locations and it is not desirable to have to save all requirements in these 5 folders (also, it can be very difficult to locate the right locations in a complex tree structure). A linked entities option would be a nice feature. Limitation: The parameter IS_SHOW_ADVANCED_SHARING (values: Y, N) should be added to the Site Configuration to enable the feature Adding filtering capabilities when creating library (Advanced filter) is missing.
  • Quality Center 10.0 is supporting Microsoft Internet Explorer 9.0

  • Pin to baseline now takes the baselines requirement test coverage into account. Note: Enable the set system parameter GET_COVERAGE_FROM_BL_FOR_PINNED_TESTSET to Y.
  • Quality Center 10.00 patch 22 is now certified on Win Server 2008 R2. For installation instructions, make a support request.

I like to know QCv10 patch 23 – PATCH NAME (General Release)… could you please provide me the patch name

    Joe Colantonio - April 9, 2012

    maggi » Hi Maggie – sorry for some reason QC Patch 23 is no longer listed under HP’s patch section. I know that they are cumulative so the latest one would contain all the fixes from 23. Does anyone else know what the actual patch name was 23 TD4QC_?????

shruti - December 4, 2012

hi. We are facing an issue. The grid view in Test Lab is not visible. We are not able to see the test names( left pane) although all the tabs in right pane(details, execution grid. execution flow etc) are visible. The current patch of HPQC ver 10 is 22. do you recommend upgrading the patch? will this help resolve the issue?
