Publishing specific results to the server

If you have a single test result or multiple test results that are not published to IBM® Rational® Test Automation Server, you can publish a single or all of them simultaneously.

Before you begin

  • You must have installed the Rational® Test Automation Server and started it. The server is part of the product package. For more information about Rational® Test Automation Server, see the Knowledge Center.
  • If the IBM® Rational® Test Automation Server server is behind a firewall, you might not be able to connect to it. You must configure the firewall so that it can allow connections on ports 5443 and 7828.
