Find the presence of testcases within testplan folder



  I am tyring to find whether the folder selected in test plan is having testcases immediately within itself (not subfolders, direct testcases). In case if there are no testcases in that folder I want to display a messagebox. I am trying to understand if there is any variable or property which i can read to get this info.


Note: I am using ALM 11, and its for workflow automation using VB

Re: Find the presence of testcases within testplan folder

There is not a field in the database entity ALL_LISTS (the Test Plan Folder table) that says a folder has tests. However you can access the OTA API from the workflow, and through that you can get the answer. Test Plan Folders are the SubjectNode object in the API. Once you retrieve the SubjectNode for the specified folder you can use the FindTests method to determine if the folder has any tests.
