About this task

Many tests follow similar patterns. One common pattern, for example, is to open a form, set some field values, validate some field values, click a UI action, and submit the current form. If a template exists containing these steps, you can add them to a test all at once. The Automated Test Framework comes with default templates out of the box. With this procedure, you create your own templates.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Automated Test Framework > Administration > Test Templates.
    The system displays the Test Templates list.
  2. Click New.
    The system displays the Test Template new record form.
  3. In the Name field, enter a name for your template.
  4. In the Test Template field, click the lock icon ().
    The Test Template field unlocks and expands to allow editing.
  5. In the Test Template field, enter the name of the first test step to add to this template.
    The system adds the test step to the list.
  6. Continue adding test steps – in the order in which you want them to appear – until you have added all the steps you want to include in the list.
  7. In the Description field, enter a description of this template.
  8. Click Submit.
