Working With Tags

Use tags to group test suites within a project. In particular, this can be used to run only a group of test suites associated with the specific tag or exclude these suites from the test run.

Tip: Tags are always alphanumeric.

You can edit all tags in the project from the Tags panel.

Add Tags

  1. Select the test suite.

  2. Click Assign Tag on the toolbar.

  3. Specify the name of the tag and press Enter. The specified tag will be added to the selected test case.

Focusing Test Run on Desired Test Cases

  1. Open the list of selected tags.

  2. To include the tagged test suites to the test run and exclude others, select Show from the Show/Hide drop-down menu.

  3. Select a filtering rule:

    • Select All tags to show test suites only with all the selected tags. For example, if you select tag1 and tag2, ReadyAPI will only show test suites that contain both tag1 and tag2.

    • Select At least one to show test suites with any of the selected tags. For example, if you select tag1 and tag2, ReadyAPI will show test suites that contain either tag1, tag2, or both.

Tags Panel

You can manage all tags in the project from the Tags panel. The table lists all tags and the number of test suites and test cases each tag is assigned to. You assign tags to specific test suites on the Test Suites page of the Projects editor, or to specific test cases on the TestCases page of the Test Suite editor. See above to learn how to assign tags to test suites and Test Suite Editor to learn how to assign tags to test cases.

The Tags panel

To add a tag, click on the toolbar and specify the name of the new tag and click OK.

Note: The newly created tag is not assigned to any test suite or test case. You have to assign it manually.

To delete a tag, select the tag and click on the toolbar. ReadyAPI will unassign the tag from all test suites and test cases and remove it.

To rename a tag, double-click the tag name and enter a new name.

To sort the table, click the header of the column you want to sort the table by. The first click sorts the table in ascending order, the second click sorts in descending order.
