5.2.2.10. Parameters

Test cases can have parameters associated with them. This enables one test case to be called several times by another test case (as a link) and have different parameters passed in each case, making the operation different. E.g. you could have a generic “login to application” test case that others call as an initial step, which could be provided with different login information depending on the calling test case.

To view / change the parameters associated with the current test case, click on the <Parameters> icon in the toolbar and the list of current parameters will be displayed:

The list of existing parameters is displayed in a grid, followed by the option to add a new parameter and default value (used when the test case is run directly rather than being called by another test case). You can delete an existing parameter and also copy the parameter token to your computer’s clipboard. The latter option is useful so that you can insert the parameter token (in the format ${parameter name}) in the test step description, expected result or sample data fields and have it converted into the parameter value during test execution.
