Summary0003649: Export/Import Test Plan links to test cases and platforms
DescriptionWhen going from testlink 1.9 Beta 3 to Beta 4 i realized that the database format isn't the same.
So in order to start with a fresh database content one idea was to
just export test cases and test plan and then import it into the new
testlink 1.9 Beta 5.

However, the feature to import/export a test plan (i.e. the information that collects which test cases and platforms are related to a test plan) isn't available.

I saw that there were already some requests for importing/exporting test plans, but all with slightly "increased" scope (i.e. also export the test cases).

Is there any way to bring in the feature into beta 6 with this minimized scope?
Do you have another way how i could align the databases (beta 3 vs. beta 5) manually (mysql)?

1) The original intent was - you have a problem between databases as some area has changed or you move from one server to another and don't want to transfer the database as you want to start with the "fresh new database"
Thus one way to port over your files is to export everything (testcases, testplans)to XML and then to import it into the new DB by using the xml import function.

2) We now have another use case - assume that you like to review a manual testing test plan. We can import the test spec into xml and parse it to extract e.g. all test cases. Then we assess which ones are covered by automated testing (fully or partially) and then want to run a quick check on the test plan whether it actually included the "right" test cases.
This would be easy if we can export the Test Plan into xml - but unfortunately this isn't possible right now.

So in general, i believe there are and will be more use cases to allow export/import of XML and this really would be a good enhancement for the tool.

Scope of this export:
1. export minimal information needed to feed an automated testing tool.
   that's why there is only test case name and external id (test project based counter).
May be also internal id can be added.

2. allows rebuild test case version assignment to create test plan contents.

This will be the format used to import, and that's why test case contents (summary, preconditions, steps) are not needed.

More tests needs to be done.
Export will be available on 1.9 GA.
