Creating Hostgroup with hosts using OTA API

Hi All,

 

Trying to create a  QTP hostgroup with a host by passing the hostgroup name and hostname as parameters.

When I give the host group name and host name as strings it works. When I pass them as variables, it doesn't work.

This is the piece of code:

 

  QCHostGroupName = "HOSTGRP1"
  QCHostName = "LABMACHINE"

  Set TSHostGroupFactory = TDConnection.HostGroupFactory
  Set TSHostGroup = TSHostGroupFactory.AddItem(QCHostGroupName)
  Set thisGroup = TSHostGroupFactory.Item(QCHostGroupName)
  Set TSAddHost = thisGroup.AddHost(QCHostName)

 

Can someone, help, please?

 

Thanks,

Vaishnavi.

Re: Creating Hostgroup with hosts using OTA API

Just to add clarity to the question:

 

This is the piece of code that does not work:

  QCHostGroupName = "HOSTGRP1"
  QCHostName = "LABMACHINE"

  Set TSHostGroupFactory = TDConnection.HostGroupFactory
  Set TSHostGroup = TSHostGroupFactory.AddItem(QCHostGroupName)
  Set thisGroup = TSHostGroupFactory.Item(QCHostGroupName)
  Set TSAddHost = thisGroup.AddHost(QCHostName)

 

This is the piece of code that works:

  Set TSHostGroupFactory = TDConnection.HostGroupFactory
  Set TSHostGroup = TSHostGroupFactory.AddItem("HOSTGRP1")
  Set thisGroup = TSHostGroupFactory.Item("HOSTGRP1")
  Set TSAddHost = thisGroup.AddHost("LABMACHINE")
