Adding Test Case Details

Link to Adding Test Case Details copied to clipboard

Details tab on far left selected

In the Details tab of the Add Test Case screen, you can provide essential and distinctive details for the test case before uploading commonly used components and pages for testing. At the very least, this involves assigning a name to your new test case and recording the session timeout information. Additionally, you have the option to include additional fields such as a test case description, folder, and product. You can also upload the common components and pages (for the next two steps) using the Upload CSV functionality.

You can use the Delete all common components and pages link to remove all common components and pages in a single action.

Field Usage Description
Test case name Required. Type a short name for the test case that summarizes its purpose.
Test case description Type a description of the test case that expands on its name with additional detail, such as a particular page area to be targeted. Drag the lower, right corner out to expand the field size when necessary. You can update the description and session timeout meta-data in the test case and it will update existing test run metadata
Folder A means of organizing test cases, a folder may contain multiple test cases. Activate the down arrow to display the list of existing folders, and activate one to select it.
Session timeout Required. This is a note field you can use to record session timeout information for reference purposes only. This can be used to represent the timeout of the application being tested, and timeout-related modals which themselves must also be tested. You can update the description and session timeout meta-data in the test case and it will update existing test run metadata.
Product Type to enter the name of the associated product to be tested when applicable (for example a name of an application, system, or site).

To bulk import common components and pages using a CSV file, use the Upload CSV button on the right side of the form. To know more about this topic, read Bulk Import topic.
