<component tree>

Located on the left side of the window, organizes and displays your business components hierarchically.

The tree contains the following special folders:

Components root folder

Represents the top level of the component tree. Components cannot be created directly in the root folder. This folder cannot be copied within the same project, renamed, or deleted.

Component Requests folder

 

Contains requests for new components that were submitted from the Test Plan module.

This folder cannot be renamed or deleted.

In this folder, component requests can be edited but cannot be copied.

Component requests can also be edited in the Test Plan module.

When importing libraries, components in the Component Requests folder are not included in the process.

Version Control: Version control is supported. For details on working with version control in ALM, see the Micro Focus Application Lifecycle Management User Guide: How to Use Version Control.

For task details on requesting components, see How to Create Business Process Tests and Flows.

Obsolete folder

Contains any components or component requests that have been removed but are still being used by one or more business process tests or flows. This folder cannot be renamed or deleted.

Components in this folder:

  • Are read-only.
  • Cannot be copied.
  • Cannot be modified.
  • Cannot be added to other tests and flows.
  • Can only be deleted from the Obsolete folder if they are no longer being used by any business process test or flow.
