Need help importing updates to ClearQuest

Alexandra Marbukh's picture

I am importing updates to ClearQuest data.

My import file is a text file that was created as export from another (non CQ) database. I select that I import "updates to existing records) however the import tools creates new records and updates also. I map id in the text file to the id in CQ.

Can anyone help, please? This is urgent.

Here are the steps you need to follow:

Check the box Import updates to existing data records in your clearquest database

Specify the filename

There is frame called importing record updates....
Select the cq field in which you imported the old_id(usually we name it old_id)

On the mapping page map the old_id to the id in your text file.

Hope this helps. Back up your databases before you try any of the steps.
