Run Test Case with more than one Test Script in RQM


Hakki Bozkurt (1631126) | asked Apr 20 '15, 10:49 a.m.
 Hi all,

for example:

test case: login attempts
test script1: correct id and correct pw - success login
test script2: correct id and wrong pw - error message
test script3: correct id and wrong pw x 3 - block user message
test script4: wrong id - user not found message

how can i run this scripts in order in an execution.

i have only one test case and more than one test script and one execution chance.

i can not use test suit. i can not use more test case for each test script.

Hi Hakki,

Having multiple test scripts in a RQM test case is not a good idea and goes against the best practises for RQM.

Read and understand the following article by an RQM expert as to why this is a bad idea.

You really need to use one test case for each of the above scripts as the test scripts do different tests.

yours sincerely,
Simon

Yes. I know this is a wrong usage.

I asked just to confirm the bad idea.
Thank you.

Hakki,
The scenario you described would fit into the usage of a Test Suite; is there a reason why you cant use Test Suites in your testing environments
Additionally, take a quick look this article,it may be useful
