Mind Maps

A mind map export will look something like this:

Hexawise mind maps are exported into OPML format.  To open these mind maps, you will either need to have access to a mind mapping tool that reads OPML files.  Here is a list of such tools.  If you do not have access to any of those tools, you can have a mind map emailed to you as an image (such as the one shown above).

Auto Scripting

If you have used Hexawise's Auto-Scripting feature, your exports to Excel and exports to HP QC will look something like the spreadsheet shown below.  Notice the six test steps per test script, complete with detailed tester instructions (as well as auto-generated "Test Descriptions" and auto-generated Expected Results).

Exporting into HP QC / HP ALM

Enterprise Hexawise plans include the ability to export sets of detailed test scripts from Hexawise that are customized for your firm's (or even your project's) exact formatting requirements. Have several required fields that must be included in your HQ QC / ALM files? Have several optional fields too? Have you created customized drop down lists in HP QC / ALM? No problem. That information can easily be included in your company's Hexawise instance; then all of your company's users will be able to quickly format all sets of test scripts generated by Hexawise so that they will be easily imported into your HP QC / ALM instance without additional post-export formatting.

Not all users will see this comprehensive functionality. If you are accessing your account directly through hexawise.com you will see more limited "Export to HP Quality Center / ALM" capability. If you are accessing your account directly through a dedicated instance, (e.g., yourcompanyname.hexawise.com), you will, in most cases, see the fully-customizable capability.

Exporting into Gherkin

If you're using Hexawise to create tests Gherkin tests using the "Given, When, Then" format, you will want to start by exporting into a CSV file. For more detailed instructions and a step-by-step walkthrough for Agile teams exporting Hexawise test scenarios into Gherkin tests, please see this helpful blog post.
