Query Tab

TQL at its heart is a set of one or more terminal expressions - A terminal expression is composed of a Field, such as "Name", followed by an operator such as Contains (~) and then a value i.e. "button". Here is how we would write the above expression in TQL:

Name ~ "button"

Enterprise Tester provides a comprehensive TQL Query Help within the application. There are a number of topics with explicit examples to help you become familiar with TQL.  To start go to the Fields help topic. Within each of the field definitions there are example queries that will assist in providing context.

For those users familiar with the JIRA Query Language (JQL) - you may find it useful to review the TQL for JQL Users help topic.

Manage Tab

Once you have written and verified your query you can save the query by using the save button on the search screen or on the Manage Tab.

You can save your query as a shared query (that anyone can access and edit) or private query that only you can access. Your shared and private queries can be found in the Shared Queries and My Queries sections of the Manage Tab.
