Versioning and Baselines

Share This Post -
  • Versioning. In previous versions of QTP and Quality Center, limited version control options were available if your Quality Center server had the Version Control Add-ins, which worked with third-party version control tools to perform version control. Now, version control is fully integrated into Quality Center, and the site administrator can enable version control on a per project basis.
  • When QTP is connected to a Quality Center project with version control support, you can check any QTP asset into or out of the version control database.

  • Baselines. In Quality Center, a project administrator can create baselines that provide "snapshots" of a project at different stages of development. In the Management module—Libraries tab, the administrator first creates a library, which specifies the root folders from which to import the data. The administrator then creates the actual baseline, which comprises the latest checked in versions of every asset included in the library. The administrator can also import and share entire baselines from other Quality Center projects.
  • When a project reaches an important stage in the project lifecycle, the administrator can create a new baseline of the files in the library at that point.

    In Quality Center, these baselines can be viewed and compared in their entirety. In QuickTest, you can view, retrieve, or compare the individual assets saved in any baseline of a library. This enables you to review an asset as it appeared at a specific phase in the project time line.


Baselines are supported in Quality Center 10.00 Enterprise and Premier editions only. They are not supported in Quality Center Starter edition.
