Entity Dependencies Overview

Dependencies define relationships between entities such as tests, components, and test resources. When analyzing the impact of a change proposed to a specific entity, the dependencies indicate the other entities that the change might affect. For example, you may want to view dependencies before deleting or copying an entity.

Dependency relationships are displayed in the Dependencies tab. This tab is available from the Test Plan, Business Components, and Test Resources modules. You can view the entities used by a selected entity, and the entities that are using a selected entity.

You can define dependencies between entities using other Micro Focus testing tools, for example, Unified Functional Testing. For details, refer to the Micro Focus Unified Functional Testing User Guide.

You can also define dependencies between entities by writing your own application. For details, refer to the ALM Open Test Architecture API Reference.
