Administering Testify

The administration section is the last tab on the left side of the application. In this section the user can manage the settings of the whole environment. Depending on the permissions, the administration can contain up to 9 items and is used to define the environment and the settings for the intern processes and use cases. Every setting concerning the management of issues/checklists and the organization can be found in this section.

Export and import of data in Testify

Content creation is possible either directly in Testify by manual creation or by export/import. Using the context menu (the three dots) of the respective entity in the administration area, an Excel list can be generated or uploaded for download.

This feature is currently available for the following entities:

  • Test object types and test objects

  • Equipment types and Equipment

  • Issue categories

  • Users

  • Groups

An empty (or pre-filled) exported Excel list can be manually filled with the desired content and then imported again so that Testify is supplemented with this data. This is especially convenient and efficient when multiple contents are to be imported at once.

Multilingualism

This feature makes it possible to translate the desired content before importing it. For this, columns can be inserted in the Excel list in the desired language. Example:

Title_en-US

Description_en-US

Title_de-AT

Description_de-AT

Title_nl

Description_nl
