Attaching a file to a manual test script step

Instead of including many details in a complex step, attach a file to a step and then refer to that file during a test run.


  1. In the Manual Steps section of a test script, click the Show/Hide Contents icon Show/hide Contents and select Show Attachments/Links.
  2. Select the step to add an attachment to. In the column beside the step, click the Attachment icon (Attachment), and then click Insert Attachment. The Attachments View window opens, in which you can add or remove attachments.
  3. Select the files to attach, and then click Close. The steps that contain attachments are marked with the Attachment icon.


The files are attached to the test statement. During a test run, when you reach a step that contains an attachment, you can open that attachment by clicking the file name link.
