Test as Step

This feature allows you to run an existing test as a single step within another test. This can help to reuse common automated test steps in the project. We like to call this test modularization. This means breaking up your testing tasks into modules that do specific small functions on their own, but do not perform the complete end-to-end testing scenario.

 

Here is a sample project for Amazon.com:

 

 

Here is a sample Login test:

 

 

 

Once the test modules are in place, add them to high-level tests with the Test as Step function. Next I open the AddToCart test and add the Login test to the beginning of it.

 

Standalone version

VS plugin

 

Choose the Login test and click Select.

 

 

The Login test is now inserted into the AddToCart test as a single step. The five steps of the Login test will execute before moving on to step 3 in this example.
