Classic Tests

Aligned Elements Classic tests imply that an Executed Test Case Document Object is created when a Test Case is executed. The ID number of the Executed Test Case will be the same as the ID number of the Test Case.

When the same Test Case is executed a second time, a new Revision is created of the Executed Test Case. Thus a Test Case can have max one result (the Executed Test Case) at any given time.

The Test Run feature cannot be mixed with the Classic Tests due to ID designation of the executed test cases.

How to Execute a Classic Test Case

To execute a Test Case document object and create an Executed Test Case, follow these steps:

  1. Open a Test Case in the Document Object Form. Select Execute in the Actions dropdown and select the type to create.

  2. This will create a new Executed Test Case where the ID number is identical to the ID number from the Test Case. A trace is also created from the Test Case to the Executed Test Case (equivalent to Generate Document Object). Also all attributes that are common to the parent Test Case have been copied to the Executed Test Case. After having created the Executed Test Case, the Execution number will be equal to “1” (first execution of the Test Case).

  3. Follow the test case instructions and fill out the additional fields in the Executed Test Case.

  4. When you are done with the execution of the Test Case, you can store your new data by clicking Save.

  5. You can continue working on an Executed Test Case by opening it again. Any changes will be stored as a new revision but the Execution No will remain.

  6. If the execution is completed and successful, set the status to Passed (or equivalent). If the execution was not successful, set the status to Failed (or equivalent).

To re-execute a Test case (the Test Case has already been executed at least once):

  1. Open a Test Case in the Document Object Form. Select Execute in the Actions dropdown and select the type to create.

  2. This will create a new revision of the existing Executed Test Case. Also all attributes that are common to the parent Test Case have been copied to the Executed Test Case and any specific Executed Test Case attributes are left blank. The Execution number will be increased by one.

  3. Continue working as when you executed the test case the first time.

When filling out the test case you can take advantage of the large number of available column types in the Table Attribute.

E.g. use a CheckBox column to set results or a trace column to create/refer to issues for found product anomalies on the fly.
