Import Scenario as Test

If you are creating a test for a scenario from either a single element or many elements in a Package, you do not have to manually re-type the scenario details into the test record. You can generate the test into the 'Scenario Tests' class of one element from one or more scenarios in any element in the model.

Within the Scenario Test record, the scenario description is copied to the 'Description' tab. If a scenario contains a specification, its Action steps are also copied to the 'Description' tab under the heading 'Structured Specification'.

Access

Click on the element containing the test records, and use one of the methods identified here to display the 'Import Scenario' dialog.
