Export test plan


With this function you can:

  • write the contents of a test plan version directly to a Microsoft Excel file that you have configured,
  • export the contents of the entire project, i.e. all contained test plan versions, in the following data exchange format: JSONV2.
Important If you use infra CONVERT as a module in a CAQ system, the test plan will automatically be saved in the CAQ system’s default path when saving a project (see Functions > Projects > Save project; Introduction > User manual tips > If infra CONVERT is integrated into a CAQ system).
Note Information on how to create and edit Excel templates can be found here: User manual infra CONVERT > Additional information Create and edit Excel templates. For information on the structure of the data exchange formats, see an dieser Stelle informieren: Administratorhandbuch infra CONVERT > Export
