Customizing SoloSubmit

Article ID: 569  |  Last updated: 31 Dec, 2014

Note: SoloSubmit pages should only be customized by users with advanced knowledge of HTML and JavaScript.

Using a text editor or an HTML editor, you can easily customize SoloSubmit Web pages to match the look and feel of your Web site.

If you only want to change the appearance of the Web pages, or add images and links, simply customize the pages that all customers access. If you want to modify menu values, customize static SoloSubmit pages.

Customization notes

  • You need the ID of each project you are customizing SoloSubmit for. To find this value, start the TestTrack Server Admin Utility and click Projects. The ID value is listed in the first column.
  • If you are using Windows NT, you must have permissions to save changes.
  • If you change the default HTML, it is strongly recommended that you comment out code instead of deleting it. You can easily compare the modified and unmodified versions of a page if you experience problems.

Customizing SoloSubmit pages

  1. Copy and rename the SoloSubmit.htm file to customize the defect submittal page.
  2. Customize the file using a text editor or an HTML editor.
    You can add graphics and links and customize the text on the page. You can also use supported field codes.

    You can also add JavaScript to the page. Place the code inside the  statement in the HTML then modify the  statement to call the validation function.
  3. Copy and rename the loginSoloSubmit.htm file to customize the login page.
  4. Copy and rename the ss_errormsg.htm file to customize the errors page.

Customizing static SoloSubmit pages

Use static SoloSubmit pages to provide customized pages while restricting menu values.

Note: If you use static pages, and menu values change in the TestTrack project, remember to update SoloSubmit with the changes.

  1. Open SoloSubmit by browsing to the loginSoloSubmit.htm page.
  2. Select a project and click Continue. The Report a Bug page opens.
  3. Right-click and select View Source. The source code opens in Notepad or another text editor.
  4. Select all the source code. Copy and paste it into a new HTML document.
  5. Save the HTML file using a unique file name.
  6. Customize the new file using a text editor or an HTML editor.
  7. Copy and rename the loginSoloSubmit.htm file to customize the login page.
  8. Copy and rename the ss_errormsg.htm file to customize the errors page.
  9. When you finish customizing SoloSubmit, edit the SoloSubmit settings in the TestTrack project options.

Static SoloSubmit pages can be hosted from any location because they do not need a direct server connection to spool field values. SoloSubmit pages require access to the TestTrack Pro CGI. If you move the SoloSubmit pages, make sure the CGI can be accessed.

Examples
