Dependency between Testcases

Youngling Beiträge: 5 Beitrittsdatum: 26.06.12 Neueste Beiträge
Hi all,
When trying out Claros I still got a question: Can I add dependencies between test cases only in the text box "dependencies"? Is that enough? I have entered the ID TC0002. When running the test case, the registration function did not affect the running of the test case. I have to at least be advised of dependencies. If there is no such possibility at Claros?
Thank you for info and help.
Regards, Markus

Hi Markus,

the text box is the right location too add this dependency, yet it is a free-form text field with no semantics attached.

The tester is shown this field when a test case execution is started and has to act accordingly (e.g. "DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RUN THIS IF TC0006 HAS NOT SUCCEEDED").

Making this a formal dependency is currently out of reach of the application as the needed semantics may get out of hand quite quickly.

As a solution I would suggest placing dependent tests in test suites to be executed in sequence and add instructions as shown below.

Or am I missing something in your requirements?
