Test analysis has great potential. When you create a project where testing is necessary, you need to know the basics of testing and test analysis. As the test analysis is an important part of testing, we have created a separate sub-module – Test Analysis.
Let’s see some useful features. You have already used most of the features in the Schedule module. Basic functions include Search, Filter, Table settings, and Edit. Other less-used functions include Add a TC (test case) to a test set, a shortcut for TC approval, copy to the storage, and the last functionality which we see when we expand the test set – clone.
For a better organisation, we group specific test cases into test sets. For us, the test set represents a group of test cases that have something in common. Then, when we create a test plan, working with a group of test cases in test sets is easier and faster.
The test case form is more complex. Here you can enter / describe a lot of useful and important information.
- The first required fields are test set and name – here you select specific test sets from the drop-down list.
- It’s also necessary to fill in the description, which should be described in detail, step by step, using short sentences. As a result, you should set the goal of the TC (test case).
- The test data field is used for data examples used in testing.
- You can set the priority from low, medium to high. You can also add a tag or version.
- A newly created TC should be approved by an authorised user to ensure that it meets all necessary requirements.
- Some TCs only need to be used in some areas of testing. For such cases, you can fill in additional fields for the application, environment and module.
- The other four fields (Folder, Master Requirement, Child Requirement, Requirement Version) are used when you need to connect a TC with an assigned requirement.
- In the “Tags” row, you can select a tag that you have previously created in the project settings. The tag will be assigned to the case being created and will appear in the test execution summary.
- Another field is File Manager for adding and editing files.
- The last two fields include the precondition and the expected result. Here, it’s necessary to specify individual steps of a TC in detail.
Adding test sets in bulk
Use this feature to create the same tests faster and in a set. You can select one test set (or create a new one) in which you create many TCs with the selected name and the same test steps. All other information is empty (it can be completed). This feature is useful when a user needs to create a TC for quantity testing.
Export & Import
Other very useful features include export and import. These two functions are useful for saving TCs or importing already written TCs. The functionalities work with the document type “xlsx”. For import, you have to use a “.xlsx” document with a given template.
Copying and deleting in bulk
If you need to copy or delete multiple TCs at once, use the bulk copying or bulk deletion feature. You can select all TCs in a specific test set or just some TCs.
If you want to copy a TC to another project or to the same one but to another test set, use bulk copying.
The second option is to copy to the storage.
