2.2. Test Case Management

SpiraTeam® provides the ability to create, edit and delete project test cases that are stored in a hierarchical folder structure that resembles Windows Explorer ®. Each test case consists of a set of test steps that represent the individual actions a user must take to complete the test. These test steps also contain a description of the expected result and any sample data elements that the tester should use when performing the action. When a user executes a test case, the results are stored in a test run that contains the success/failure status of each test step as well as the actual observed result that the tester experienced.

In addition each test case is mapped to one or more requirements that the test is effectively validating, providing the test coverage for the requirement. During the execution of the test case, each failure can be optionally used to record a new incident, which can then be managed in the incident tracking module (see below). This provides complete traceability from a recorded incident to the underlying requirement that was not satisfied.

To streamline the assignment and tracking of multiple test cases, SpiraTeam® allows users to select groups of test cases and arrange them into test sets. Each test set can contain test cases from a variety of different folders and can be associated with a specific release of the system being tested.
