Test Suite Management

This document provides guidelines on how to create and manage test suites in the TESTaide application.

 

To be able to manage test suites, you will need to have the correct permissions, such as Project Manager, Create Plan/TC … . For more information, please refer to Global Permissions.

  • A test suite is treated as a grouping of test cases. It is recommended to use test suites when you need to group test cases together instead of using categories.

  • Note that even if a test case is contained in multiple test suites, the system will consider the test case as different units, operating them separately.
