Creating a New Test Case

Create a new test case whenever you want to specify a new testing scenario, its steps, and related product information for a specific evaluation. Test cases include pages, description of the test scenario, folder it is contained in, the applicable standard, session timeout and product information.

Collectively these three steps require completion of three tabs of information, each panel of which provides form fields and action buttons to create the new test case.

To create a new test case:

On the Test Cases screen, activate the New test case button at the top, right of the page.
