                                                                          Other Important Notes:

  • Screenshots are taken automatically by the tool at every executed step and are saved for viewing.
  • Page Objects by itself cannot be run, they need to be inserted as part of the Test case to be executed.
  • Page Object script steps cannot be deleted from the test script.
  • Multiple tests can be run at one go by selecting all the tests and clicking on Bulk actions ->Run Tests.
  • To watch the live test execution step by step in progress, the user may select Watch Now at the time of running the test; this will mostly be useful for debugging purposes.
  • One can perform live editing using ‘Local Edit’ which is in each step option that will allow to add/edit more step actions to the test. Another way is to use (+) button between the step actions to add/edit.

Test Data Notes:

  • Test data can be included at the step level or by using the TDM tab.
  • Functionize provides many ways to add Actions to your Test Cases. Insert Actions directly from the Test Detail page or Slider View. You can also use Local Edit and Live Debug to make test alterations.
  • A test case can be executed in a variety of ways: By default, a test case is run in the background where you are unable to view the live interaction with the browser. Live Execution allows you to see how the test is interacting with the browser while it is running on the VM. Live Debug allows you to interact with the test while it is running. During a Live Debug execution, you can pause the test, set breakpoints (to run the test to a certain step), and make edits to the test.
  • Add in the Notes section regarding which story is this test written for, as this info will help link the test with the user story.
  • Also, we can add notes later after we save the test by clicking on 3 dots and going to Test settings as seen in the picture.

Add Notes

  • Please make sure to add Instructions in the Test to describe the use cases/split of the use cases being tested.
