To rename Resource Type or Test Type in Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) 11.00

First of all, because this is a database (DB) change, it is highly recommended to make a back up of your project database before doing any changes on it.

Please follow these steps in order to change the name of resource type “Testing Activity”:

1. Login into your Site Administration

2. Navigate to your project in the tree

3. Expand its tables

4. Go to ENTITY_SUBTYPES Table

5. In the query box enter the following Query

For Test Type (QUICKTEST_TEST):

— this script will update the type visible in Test Plan

UPDATE ENTITY_SUBTYPES

SET EST_NAME=’QTP_TEST’ — the name you want to set

WHERE EST_ID = ‘QUICKTEST_TEST’ — you can check it in the same table

AND EST_ENTITY_TABLE_NAME = ‘TEST’

— this script will update the type visible in Test Lab

UPDATE ENTITY_SUBTYPES

SET EST_NAME=’QTP_TEST’ — the name you want to set

WHERE EST_ID = ‘QUICKTEST_TEST’ — you can check it in the same table

AND EST_ENTITY_TABLE_NAME = ‘RUN’

For Resource Type:

UPDATE ENTITY_SUBTYPES

SET EST_NAME=’Resource Type Name’ — the name you want to set

WHERE EST_ID = ‘Resource Type ID’ — you can check it in the same table

AND EST_ENTITY_TABLE_NAME = ‘RESOURCE’

6. Close your browser

7. Open your Temp folder (in windows explorer path enter %temp%)

8. Find and delete folder called “TD_80”

9. Open your browser again and load the HP ALM components

10. Login into the project and check the name of the type you have changed.
