Accessibility: Test Case Specification
Currently this page does not apply. We are currently not using manual testing, our automation scripts are our test cases. These guidelines should be followed if manual test cases are introduced in the future
Test case specification
All manual test cases must be stored on Testopia from http://bugzilla.novell.com. Individual test cases cannot be found on this page.
The outline below must be used for all manual test cases. When creating or modifying a test case, please ensure that all the fields below are present. Do not skip fields; if the field is not applicable please mark it not applicable.
This specification is created base on Testopia content items.
Abstract description of what is to be tested. this should be provided in Testopia’s “Summary” field.
Test case specification identifier
Some way to uniquely identify a test case. Testopia provides this.
Items (e.g., requirement specs, design specs, code, etc.) required to run a particular test case. This should be provided in Testopia’s “Notes” or “Attachment” feature.
Description of what is required (step-by-step) to execute the test case (e.g., input files, values that must be entered into a field, etc.). This should be provided in Testopia’s “Action” field.
Description of what the system should look like after the test case is run. This should be provided in the Testopia’s “Expected Results” field.
Description of any special environmental needs. This includes system architectures, tools, records or files, interfaces, etc. System OS, architecture should be provided in Testopia’s “Environment” field. Other environmental needs should be provided under “Notes” and files should be added to “Attachments”
Special procedural requirements
Description of any special procedures or special configurations necessary to set up and breakdown the test environment. This should be provided in Testopia’s “Setup” and “Breakdown” fields
Dependencies or relations with other test cases. This should be provided in Testopia’s “Notes” field.
If test case include some test scripts, scripts should be added into Testopia’s “Attachments” field and give abstract description.
each test case should chose a component to rely on which component of project in Testopia’s “Component” field.
