Adding Test Case Details

Link to Adding Test Case Details copied to clipboard

Details tab on far left selected

On the Details panel of the Add Test Case screen, you are able to specify basic and identifying information about the test case before adding common components and pages to be tested. At a minimum, this includes giving your new test case a name. Optionally, selection and entry fields exist for describing the test case, deciding which folder it will be in, the standard to be tested against, how long the timeout is for a session within the site to be tested, and the name of the product that will be tested. It also allows you to upload the common components and pages (for the next two steps) using the Import functionality.

Populating the Details panel fields then activating the Next button when creating a new Test

This table lists each field in the Add Test Case Details form, with a usage description of each in the right column.

New Test Case: Details (Step 1 of 3) screen > Add Test Case Details form

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.
Digital Asset Type Select the digital asset type from the dropdown menu. This is an optional field. Selecting the digital asset type here sets the value for all test runs within this test case, and users cannot alter the digital asset type during the creation of a test run.
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).
Update axe Reports Select from the three available options in the dropdown menu if you have the required permission to decide whether every test run associated with the test case should automatically update the data to axe Reports or if the updates should be managed individually for each test run. To do the above, you select the option as either as Every Test Run or Selected Test Runs. If you set the option to Never, users working with test runs cannot update the data to axe Reports.

Note: The selection the user makes takes precedence over any selections made during the creation or editing of the test run.

Note: Only users with axe Reports integration enabled during axe Auditor installation can view this field.
