A test suite is a collection of one or more test cases that can be executed together in Opkey. You can create a test suite of either manual or automated test cases and cannot add both types in a single suite.
For example, in an e-commerce application, a test suite could encompass test cases for user authentication, product search functionality, and checkout process.
Each test case in a test suite is independent of the other test cases and runs individually. By grouping related test cases into a test suite, you can ensure comprehensive coverage and efficient testing cycles.
Now, let's look into the process of creating a test suite in the following steps.
1. Hover over the 'Automate' icon on the left panel and click 'Test Suite'.
2. The test suite dashboard appears. Here, you can see the already created test suites in Opkey. On the Test Suite dashboard, you can delete, rename, or search for test suites by clicking on the icons next to the 'Create Test Suite' button.
3. You can see the list of existing test suites on the dashboard with details such as priority, assignee, and state.
4. You can also apply filters such as Assignee, Reporter, and Status. You can also click the filter icon to apply advanced filters such as Milestone, Release, Priority, and more.
5. Now, to create a test suite, click the 'Create Test Suite' button.
6. A new window appears where you need to fill in details like the name of the suite, choose priority, and assign it to a user. You can also add a description and upload attachments like spreadsheets, images, videos, etc.
7. Scroll down the Create Test Suite page and select the type of test cases to add from the dropdown. You can select either Manual or Automated test cases. After that, you can select the test cases from the list below or search a test case from the Search bar next to the dropdown.
8. Finally, click the Create button at the bottom.
9. You will be directed to the test suite where you can add test cases by clicking the Add Test Case button at the top. You can click the icons on the toolbar at the top of the test case window to Run, Schedule a Run, select and move a suite up or down, and delete a selected test case from the suite.
10. You can also click the three dots icon on a step to use options such as, Open, Copy, Paste, Delete, Move Up and Down, Set To Run, and Skip From Run on a selected test case.
11. At the bottom of the page, you can add a comment, see the audit trail, and add more tabs such as Test Case Documents, Mail To, Scheduled Session, and Impacts.
12. Finally, click the Save button at the top to save the test suite.
