Adding a test case to a build verification test suite

About this task

In this task, Tanuj creates and executes one test case. However, in a real project, you group multiple test cases together into an ordered list, so that they can be executed as a group. In Rational Quality Manager, this is known as a Test Suite. You can create test suites for any purpose, such as build verification suites, smoke tests, and regression suites.

Tanuj adds his new test case to an existing build verification test suite.

Procedure

  1. Open the test suite:
    1. Click Construction > Browse > Test Suites.
    2. Open the SVT Test - Money that Matters test suite.
  2. Add the new test case to the test suite:
    1. In the test suite, click Test Cases.
    2. Click the Add Test Cases icon in the toolbar above the list of test cases.
    3. Select the Allocate Dividends To Multiple Causes test case and click Add and Close to add the test case to the test suite.
    4. Save the test suite.
