Upgrading Oracle TestTrack Projects on Linux Servers

Article ID: 408  |  Last updated: 23 Sep, 2015

Note: This information only applies to TestTrack 7.5 and later running on Linux. You may follow slightly different steps if you are using TestTrack Web.

TestTrack no longer supports the OpenLink Oracle drivers due to an issue with Unicode characters. We recommend using the Oracle Call Interface (OCI) to connect to Oracle databases.

If you are upgrading a Linux server, you need to reconfigure projects stored in Oracle databases to use the OCI driver and then upgrade the TestTrack projects.

Install the Oracle Instant Client

The Oracle client includes the OCI driver. If you do not already have an Oracle client, download and install the Oracle Instant Client.

Create a new RDBMS connection

  1. Start the TestTrack Server Admin Utility.
  2. Click Server Options.
  3. Click RDBMS Connections in the Servers category.
  4. Click Add to add a new RDBMS connection.
  5. Select Oracle from the Connection Type list.
  6. Enter the connection information.
  7. Click OK to add the connection.

Remove and re-add the project

  1. Click Projects.
  2. Select the project you want to upgrade and click Remove.
  3. Click Yes to remove the project.
  4. Click OK to close the message that opens.
  5. Click Add Existing.
  6. Select RDBMS from the Project Type list.
  7. Select the new Oracle connection.
  8. Select the project from the Project Name list.
  9. Click OK.
    The project is re-added to the server and displayed in the projects list.

Delete the old RDBMS connection

  1. Click Server Options.
  2. Click RDBMS Connections in the Servers category.
  3. Select the old Oracle connection and click Delete.
  4. Click Yes to confirm the deletion.
  5. Click OK.

Upgrade the project
