How to attach image in test steps

Thursday, January 5, 2012

I'm using the hosted trial demo for evaluation.
I would like to include an image when documenting single test-steps but, after clicking on the image icon (like the one on this forum) SpiraTest prompts me for a web URL, why? Where should point this URL?

I've searched for this topic in the pdf user manual but it is not covered.

More than this, there is no way to simply upload an image from my local PC?

You should instead click on the hyperlink for the test step. On the Test Step details page, use the Attachments tab to add a screenshot image.

This was not exactly what I was looking for. I would like to provide a sample image to the tester when he/she is executing a test. Obviously, I can write something like "see the attached image abc.jpg" but is less direct than showing the image inside the test-case description itself...

Anyway, I've noticed that, when executing a test-step, the area on the screen reserved to display the description is quite small (is larger but thin); so maybe is not the best place to show pictures and your suggestion is more appropriate.

Hi Giulio,

What i do is attach the image as Inflectra have suggested then right click the attachment and select Copy URL, Then i past the URL in the image insert box when it prompts for a URL, This will make the images display in the step box's when executing and You are correct they are small, You can ALT+Click on the box's to make them pop out to full screen, I include this tip in my steps when displaying a large image. Though recently I have increased the size of the box's aswell-as remove the need to press the ALT key to make them full screen. I can provide you with instruction on where to make these changes to spiratest if you wish.
