A

A test case step defines a single step to be performed during the execution of a test case. Test case steps in a test case must be defined in a sequence that the tester needs to follow to perform the test case.

Here is a simple data object type for test case steps.

Test_Case_Step data type, in TestMan version 1.00, properties:

  • ID - Identification of this test case step.
  • Test_Case_ID - Reference to the test case data object.
  • Name - A short name for this test case step.
  • Description - A long description for this test case step including actions needed to perform this step.
  • Inputs - Child object for a list of input data to be used to perform this test step.
  • Assertions - Child object for a list assertions to evaluate how successful this test step is.

Examples of Test_Case_Step object:

Test_Case_Step
	ID: 333
	Test_Case_ID: 111
	Name: Loading login page in browser
	Description: Sent a HTTP GET request to retrieve the login page.
