Zeta Test Management Online documentation

Working with test cases

Test cases grouped within test units define the tests that are available within a project.

A test case describes the prerequisites that must be fulfilled in order to perform the test, the test steps that must be performed during testing and the expected results of the completed tests.

A test case can contain an infinite number of attachments, e.g. a Microsoft Office Excel document that describes how the software to be tested should behave (i.e. in this example, that the application to test generates Microsoft Office Excel documents by itself).

Please note:
The dialog window for editing test cases is non-modal, i.e. you can keep the dialog window open and still continue working with other parts of Zeta Test. This is helpful when you e.g. want to display multiple information concurrently.

Creating and editing test cases

In order to create a test case, follow these steps:

  1. Select a test unit in the structure view.
  2. Right-click the test unit.
  3. Select "New test case" from the context menu.
  4. The dialog window "Edit test case" shows up. Fill out all required fields.
  5. Confirm by clicking "OK".

Follow the following similar steps to edit an existing test case:

  1. Right click the test case to edit.
  2. Select "Edit test case" from the context menu.
  3. The dialog window "Edit test case" shows up. Fill out all required fields.
  4. Confirm by clicking "OK".

Please note:
If planned test cases exist that are assigned to a test case (within the respective test plans), the changes to a test case do not automatically change the planned test cases, too. You will need to perform this action manually. To do this, open the "Edit test plan" dialog window, select the "More settings" tab and click on the "Synchronize test case modifications" button.

Importing test cases

You can import test cases from other projects:

  1. Right click "Test units" in the structure view of the main window.
  2. Select "Import test units and cases" from the context menu.
  3. Follow the instructions in the wizard dialog that appears.
Test cases that you imported into a project still exist in the original project from which they were imported without any changes to them.
