Implementing Tests as Suites

Implementing Tests as Suites
Icons in the Test Plan window indicate if a test case or configured test case has an
implementation and whether it is automated or manual. For a configured test case,
the icons also indicate if the implementation was inherited from the parent test case.
The following figure shows some of the icons. For a complete list of the icons, see the
Rational TestManager Help.
Even if an icon shows that the implementation is automated, the test case could
also have a manual implementation.
Implementing Tests as Suites
Suites are another way to implement tests in TestManager. A suite shows a
hierarchical representation of the tasks that you want to test or the workload that you
want to add to a system. It shows such items as the user or computer groups, the
resources assigned to each group, which test scripts the groups run, and how many
times each test script runs.
When implementing a test as a suite, you can:
Define user or computer groups and apply resources to them specifying where
they run.
Groups are collections of virtual testers that perform similar tasks in the
