A test suite is a set of test cases which can be executed sequentially. The results of the test suite execution are grouped together in Klaros-Testmanagement and can be used to verify and ensure that a system meets its design specifications and requirements.

Test suites may be created, removed, duplicated, updated and assigned to categories on this page. The displayed test suites may be filtered and sorted as described in Section 5.2.5, “Filtering and Sorting” ( Figure 6.35).

The Test Suites Screen

Figure 6.35. The Test Suites Screen


The Test Suites screen shows all of the test suites in the current project. Direct editing of the displayed attributes is possible here.

The leftmost column allows test suites to be selected for bulk actions. The uppermost checkbox is a global select button, which selects or deselects all elements shown in the table. Please note that the displayed elements are subject to the current search and catagorization criteria.

Test Suites may be viewed on a printer-friendly page as described in Section 5.2.6, “Print Pages” as well as categorized as described in Section 5.2.7, “Categorization”.

6.7.1. Bulk Actions

Some bulk actions are available on the Test Suites page. Bulk actions are described in Section 5.2.10, “Bulk Actions”.

The bulk actions available on this page are: Edit, Print, Delete, Duplicate selected Items, Create new Revisions, Add Test Cases and Assign to Category. The bulk action buttons can be found above the table on the left.

6.7.2. Create Test Suites

New test suites can be created by clicking the New button ( Figure 6.35). The test suite ID is automatically assigned and the Description and System under Test may be specified by the user. The test suite is created in the currently selected project. Clicking the Edit icon opens the Test Suite Details section ( Section 6.7.3, “Test Suite Details”). Clicking the duplicates a test suite.

6.7.3. Test Suite Details

Clicking the Edit icon opens the Test Suite Details page and allows editing of the test suite's description and its system under test and of the list of the test cases in this test suite, also changing their order ( Figure 6.36).

[Note] The assigned System under Test of a Test Suite

The assignment of a test suite with a system under test does not affect the functionality of Klaros-Testmanagement. The test suites can be still run with other systems under test. This attribute is just a guideline for the user.

Clicking the icon adds the test case to the test suite, clicking the icon removes the test case from the test suite and clicking the opens a dialog which allows the user to change the order of the test cases.

The icon allows to quickly find and remove all duplicate test case entries in the test suite. After invocation it displays a dialog listing all duplicates found. If the dialog is confirmed all duplicates are removed from the test suite and the test suite is saved.

[Note] How to create a new revision of a test suite?

Clicking the New Revision button creates a new revision of the test suite. This button is disabled if there are any unsaved changes to the test suite.
