  4. On the first page of the wizard, you can specify the project name, location and test type:

    In the Project name text box, enter Orders.

    Leave the default value in the Location text box.

    Select a test type. You can create either a keyword test, or a JavaScript or Python script test:

    • A keyword test is a series of keywords that define user actions, for example mouse clicks, text input and so on. You create keyword tests visually. No scripting background is required.

    • JavaScript and Python tests are script functions with instructions simulating user actions.

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to create a keyword test. Click Keyword.

  5. Click Next to continue.

We will continue working with the wizard to add our tested application to the project.
