Publishing specific results to the server

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

Before you begin

  • Accessed Rational® Test Automation Server.

  • Created an offline user token to connect to Rational® Test Automation Server from Rational® Performance Tester. For more information, refer to Managing access to server.

  • Created or joined a project in Rational® Test Automation Server.

  • Configured the firewall so that Rational® Test Automation Server enables connection on the port 443.

  • Upgraded legacy reports to the Web Analytics report format.

About this task

You can publish the statistical reports to Rational® Test Automation Server at this moment.

You can publish large test results from Rational® Performance Tester to Rational® Test Automation Server. When you publish large test results then the report publishes to Rational® Test Automation Server in chunks of predefined size.


  1. Open Rational® Performance Tester, and then go to File > Export.
  2. Expand the Test folder, and then select Execution Result to Rational® Test Automation Server.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Expand the project, and then select one or more test results that you want to publish.

    Alternatively, you can right-click on all the test results that you want to publish from Test Navigator, and then select Publish Results.

    Tip: You can press the Ctrl key to select the results from across projects.
  5. Click New Server and specify the URL of Rational® Test Automation Server.

    The format of the URL is https://fully-qualified-domain-name:443.

    Note: If you had added the publish parameters in the product Preferences, then the Server field auto-populates the URL of the server.
  6. Enter an offline user token that you created on Rational® Test Automation Server.
  7. Select a project from the Project Name drop-down list.
  8. Click a row against the result and type the name of the label in the Labels column to add labels to the result.
