Multiple Test Cases or Multiple Test Script: what to use for O.K / K.O scenarios


Erwin Kunz (94687086) | asked Sep 04 '13, 11:38 a.m.

CLM 4.0.3

I have an application which allows me to load a configuration. Everithing is defined and the user needs only to clik to import the config.

I would like to test when the file is avaiable and once if the file is missing.

Shall I create one test case IMPORT with two scripts and run the Execution record several time by changing "Default Script"

or shall i create multiple Test Cases with one Test Script each

Thank you

Hi Erwin,

Are the set of steps you perform to test the scenario the same for both cases - file present and file missing? If essentially all the steps are going to be the same, you can just have another additional step in the script that specifies running the same steps with this parameter being different.

Thanks,
Deepa

Hi Deepa

That's a good hint. I does not answer my question in general, but for the particular case it does.
I should have written that this is a example

What would you suggest if the steps are different. Suite with cases, or cases with scripts
