Creating keyword-enabled manual test scripts

After adding keywords to the repository, you can add them to a new or existing script. Keyword-enabled manual test scripts can be composed solely of keywords, or they can be a mix of keywords and manual statements.


To create a keyword-enabled script:

  1. In the main menu, click Construction > Browse > Test Scripts. The Browse Test Scripts window opens.
  2. From the list of test scripts, click the name of the test script to open it in the Manual Test editor.
  3. Use the Manual Test editor to add keywords:
    1. Click the Show Keyword View icon, which is in the editor toolbar. In the Keyword view, type the name of the keyword in the text field that is labeled Type Filter Text. As you type, the search filters the list of existing keywords and returns those keywords that contain your search string. Additionally, click the Advanced Filters icon next to the filter text field to search for keywords by attributes or using saved queries.
    2. Drag and drop the keyword over any manual step to add it to the script. The keyword is added to the script and marked with the Keyword icon.
      Tip: Associate keywords with scripts using channels to accelerate tests of common features across various devices and platforms. Examine your keywords' channel coverage in their associated test scripts by reviewing the Keyword Coverage section in the test script editor.
  4. Click Save at the top of the page to save the test script.
