Managing Test Cases

Designer > Test Cases is the central repository for test cases for all your models. From here, you can:

See Building Test Cases to learn how to create your first test case.

Find and View a Test Case

All existing test cases are displayed on the Test Cases page in alphabetical order. Just click on a test case name to preview it.

To narrow down the list to find a specific test case or group of test cases, either:

  • Enter full or partial test case names in the search box.
  • Select the model that the test cases belong to.

Along with the name of the test case, and the model it belongs to, the following details are displayed:

  • Origin: The source of the test case. For example, another test application or auditing system.
  • External ID: The unique identifier for the test case in the external system.
  • Tags: Any tags specified for the test case. Tags are useful for identifying test cases, and associated test results, that belong to a particular category or feature.

Run Tests Cases Against a Model

You can manually run test cases at any time.
