5.8.3. Overview - Test Cases

This section displays the list of test cases contained within the test set. You can add, remove, reposition and remove test cases from the list. The execution status displayed next to each test case is the most recent execution status of the test case when run in the context of the current test set.

To move the test cases, you simply need to click the test case icon and drag it to the appropriate position in the list. Whilst you are dragging the icon, the border in the list will change color to indicate where it will be moved to.

To modify an existing Test Case you simply need to click on the <Edit> button in the right-most column, or just double-click on the cells in the row. That will switch the selected row into Edit mode. The owner field can then be set at the test case level. This is useful in situations where you want the different test cases in the set to be executed by different testers (e.g. in integrated, scenario tests)

To add a new test case to the Test Set, you need to click on the “Add Test Cases” hyperlink to display the popup dialog box:

You can then select the checkboxes of the individual test cases or whole folders of test cases that you want to add to the test set. Once you have selected the desired items, click the <Add> button to actually add them to the test set.

Test cases in SpiraTeam can have parameters defined which are available to specify the text that should be used to replace certain tokens in the test case. In addition these parameters may be used by certain test automation engines. In addition to being able to specify the parameter values when linking the test cases as test steps of a parent test case, you can also specify the parameter values from the Test Set.

To view/edit the parameter values being set by the test case, you should either select the checkbox of a test set and click “Edit Parameters” at the top of the section, or right-click on the test case and choose “Edit Parameters”:

You can then specify the values of the parameters that the test set will pass to the test case. Once you have entered / modified the values, click [Update] to commit the changes.
