Attachment test steps

Test an attachment-dependent business rule by uploading an attachment either from a form or from a server-side API call. For example, you can have a business rule that doesn't let you close an incident without an attachment such as a screenshot.

Upload from form
As a UI test step, the upload attachment step requires navigation to a form, which you can open using either Open a New Form or Open an Existing Record. Use Upload Attachments to select from the attachments that the test step adds to the form. When you select attachments to add to a form, the system waits to load the attachments before proceeding to the next test step. For more information on UI test dependency and wait mechanism, see UI test steps.
Upload from Server API
As a Server test step, the upload attachment step has no UI dependencies. Use Upload Attachments to select from the attachments that the test step adds to the record. When you select attachments to add to a form, the system waits for the attachments to be loaded before proceeding to the next test step. For more information, see Server test steps.

Design considerations

Follow these design considerations for attachment test steps:

  • All attachment steps require adding one or more attachments.
  • The system rolls back any attachments by the step after the test completes.
  • The system cannot roll back any existing attachments after the test completes.
  • Avoid testing records with existing attachments to eliminate data dependency.
  • If UI testing is involved, add the attachment to a form.
  • When no UI is involved, add the attachment to the Server API.
