A test suite is a collection of test cases that can be used for grouping functional tests into logical units.

Your project can contain any number of test suites and you can see and execute them all in sequence or parallel (see Test Suites).

TestCases Page

The main purpose of the TestCases page is managing test cases. To learn how to do it, see Managing Test Cases.

The TestCases page gives you an overview of the contained test cases and their run status. It allows you to add, remove or modify test cases, as well as assign tags and use them to filter test cases for a test run. For more info, see Working With Tags.

Besides that, panels of the page allow you to modify various test suite aspects:

  • Description – Specify the text description of the test case.

  • Properties – Manage the list of test case properties. See the Test Suite Properties section.

  • Setup Script – Specify a script that is run at the start of a test case run. To learn more, see Setup, TearDown, and Report Scripts.

  • TearDown Script – Specify a script that is run when the test case run finishes. To learn more, see Setup, TearDown, and Report Scripts.

  • Report Script – Specify a script that is run when you generate a report. To learn more, see Script Extensions.

  • Report Parameters – Manage the list of parameters used for the report creation. To learn more, see Script Extensions.

You can edit all tags in the project from the Tags tab in the Project editor.

Add Tags
