Tosca Query Language: the Secret Behind the Tosca Object Model

It had been a long and busy time since I had visited to check what new trainings were available, and was impressed by how many new courses there were. As fascinated as I was, I headed straight into the TQL course, not quite sure what to expect…

In this episode of “Training Courses with Max”, I would like to try something new. I will lay down a challenge for you straight from the get go, and offer you the chance to jump to the last paragraph if you succeed. Sound good?

If you can understand what we’re searching for in the following query, just skip ahead:

You failed? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

In the new Tosca Query Language course, which is a Tricentis Specialist training, you will learn how the Object Model of Tosca works. You will also learn which parts are connected, why you need to search for Test Cases to get to Execution Entries, and so on. The real challenge is understanding and memorizing all the kinds of combinations you can do within a search. Need to use them often? Save search queries in a Virtual folder, and access them whenever you need.

Database-savvy people might quickly wonder at the title, and to those of you: yes it works the same way. We’re talking about SQL: TQL draws a lot of inspiration from the good ol’ query language. The statements we build are based on logical definitions. The course shows you quite a few ways to navigate through them.

To those that understood the Query, and are joining us now: yup, the query helps us look for Test Cases which aren’t Templates, are linked in the Requirements section, and are set to the status: completed. Even if you succeeded on the challenge above, I recommend trying out the training. It will help you for sure! You can learn more queries like the one above, and branch out to all sections in the Tosca Commander. Looking for the proverbial needle in the haystack? Here is a magnet!

Once again, can you beat my score?
