Summary0007537: 'Wrong xml Test Suite file' when try to import test suite from testNG test suite xml file.
DescriptionI tried to import test suite from a selenium/testng/maven project to testLink.
While the xml Test Suite file was not able to be recognized by testLink. When I tried to import test suite, got error 'Wrong xml Test Suite file' on testLink > Test Specification page.

1. It would be good to have the feature that let testLink support importing test suite/cases directly from testng test suite xml file.
Additional Informationtestng test suite format:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE suite SYSTEM "" [^] >
<suite name="xxx Test_Login">
    <test name="login in FF">
        <parameter name="browser" value="FF"></parameter>
            <class name="" />
            <class name="" />

I'm going to sound rude, but I'm starting to be a little bit annoying of your issues.
It's seems you have always time to open new issues, but never time to provide requested info on the previous issues. (example 0007536)

Regarding this
We have stated clearly what is the XML format we support, and we never said that we supported testNG XML export.
Then you need to edit testNG XML to be good for TestLink.

If instead you have a feature request: Import testNG XML, then right now you have several options
1) contribute with the development
2) wait till the feature request will be analized, and may be implemented (if feasible)
3) pay for custom development of this feature. (if feasible)

in any case a Feature Request can not have as summary ' Wrong ...', because is clear that system can not do other thing that say it wrong because is not the expected format.

IMHO being rude again you need to read a little bit about how an issue/feature request has to be written

In addition your requirement is incomplete because is not clear how the attributes/data present on testNG xml, have to be mapping on testLink model

Hi fman, first thank you for the awesome tool which is really helpful. Sorry that every time I am about to reply the tickets, I found it was closed... I will try to reply it more timely.

I just wrote what I saw, 'Wrong xml Test Suite file' was just the warning message I saw in the pop-up, it didn't indicate that it was a bug. I put 'feature request' in the 'Severity'. I will improve the title after I writing this note. And will be careful when I write ticket next time.

I just started to use testLink, and found it is an awesome tool. I am writing tickets not to request some customized features. I am excited about this tool, and want it to be better and better. I am testing the integration of testLink with other opensource tools/frameworks. TestNG is a popular testing framework, so I would think if testLink could directly get test cases from testNG xml testSuite, that would be awesome. (Just my personal idea..)

I am actually very will to contribute with the development, but don't know how to start.. If there is anything I can do for the testLink, please let me know. I would be very happy to contribute.

Thank you!
