You can access qTest objects with the friendly URL format: [your qTest URL]/p/[project-ID]/portal/project#key=[Object PID]
Utilize Toggle ID
Every object in qTest Manager has a unique ID attached to the object's name. You can show or hide an object's ID on the tree panel using the Toggle IDs display option. This option can also be used to hide or show Test Runs in the tree panel on the Test Execution tab.
To show or hide object IDs, click the Toggle IDs display icon on the toolbar. On the menu that appears, select the check boxes for the objects that you want to show (selected check box) or hide (cleared check box) IDs for.
