Procedure documentationCopying Test Plans


To reuse test plans, you can copy one or more of them.

You can:

  • Copy without test packages

  • Copy with test packages

    • With or without test package assignments to testers

      If you copy without assignments, you can reassign the test packages to testers.

    • With or without messages which are assigned to the test package and are still open

      If you copy messages, you can also filter them by status. By default, those messages are selected which imply follow-up activities:

      • On the Test Case Error tab page, you can select the status of messages concerning damaged test cases.

      • On the Incident (IT Management) tab page, you can select the status of messages concerning functional errors.

    • With or without sequencing rules.

      A sequence defined in the test plan settings allows, for example, a test case only to be executed if a preceding test case has been executed.

When copying single test plans, you can choose between English and German as the original language of the copy.


  • In the Test Management work center, you have chosen the Test Plan Management view.

  • To copy multiple test plans, you have the extended authorization object for mass changes.

Recommendation Recommendation

Before automatically copying multiple test plans, define renaming rules so as to not need to rename the multiple copied test plans individually.

For more information, see Defining Naming Rules for Mass-Copied Test Plans.
