The test suite list view displays a list of all test suite items contained in a
Test Suites node and its subfolders.
When you double-click the Test Suites
node in the TestArchitect explorer tree
, and then select the Test
opens a list view of
test suite items for the selected node in the main panel. (Learn
Note: Test suite list views are also available for subfolders of
the Test Suites node.
The following operations can be performed on a test suite list view:
You can find various common operations that can be performed on a test suite list view in
multiple fields is not applicable to a test suite list view.
Opening a test suite
Test suites are containers for sets of test modules that reside in the same repository and
belong to the same project. You can check which test modules a given test suite contains by
right-clicking it in the list view and then clicking Open
Tip: You can also open multiple test suites by using your keyboard's
Shift key to select a contiguous range of test suites (or
Control to select multiple noncontiguous test suites); then
right-click the selection, and click Open.
Executing test suites
You can execute a desired test suite by clicking
on the context menu, which launches the
dialog. For further information regarding how to execute
tests, see Test execution
Generating a batch file
You can create a batch file
from a test suite by clicking
Generate batch file
on the context menu.
Cut-Copy-Paste operations, and Delete command
- From the test suite list view, you can move a test suite from one test suite folder to
another by performing a cut-and-paste operation from the context
- The copy-and-paste operation from the context menu allows you
to create a duplicate of the selected test suite.
- In addition to the conventional cut-and-paste and copy-and-paste from the
context menu, you can drag and drop a project item, or a selection of items, from
a list view into a folder or node of the same type in the TestArchitect explorer tree.
- Performing drag-and-drop within the same project is equivalent to cutting and
pasting. Performing a drag-and-drop across different
projects, on the other hand, is a copy-and-paste
- During a drag operation, at any time your mouse
pointer is over a location that cannot accept the type of item being dragged,
the pointer turns into a black crossed circle . Releasing the
mouse button at this point simply cancels the operation.
- Use the Delete command, from the context menu, to remove the
selected test suite(s).
Name change propagation
The process of renaming a given entity so that the change propagates to all references to
that item is known as name change
propagation. Renaming an entity automatically updates all applicable
action lines, test modules, and action definitions where the entity name appears. (Learn more.)
Editing data profiles
Dynamic test suites are created based on specific
data profiles. You can edit a data profile by clicking Edit data
on the context menu. (Learn more
