Manual test syntax
If you are using the Text Editor, use the following syntax to add steps:
Start each step with a hyphen and a space.
Start each validation step with a hyphen, a space, and a question mark.
Start each call step with a hyphen, a space, and then the @ followed by the ID of the test that you want to call. The ID of the test becomes a hyperlink that opens the actual called test.
A step can span multiple lines. Do not put a hyphen and a space before subsequent lines.
Note: When working in the text editor, a red X displays next to any lines that are not syntactically or logically correct. For example, a call step cannot call the test in which it is contained.
- Enter user name. - Enter password. - Press <ENTER>. - ? Was login successful?
Example that calls another test
- @1005 Call <Log into shopping cart> - Scroll up and down to review the cart. - Select the item(s) to delete from the cart. - Click <DELETE>. - Confirm the deletion. - ? Is the display of the cart empty?
