Creating Manual Test Case in QLM

Every organization has a repository of manual test cases that are indispensable for their testing process. For example, for every UI-related release, testers manually asses the UI features from an end user's perspective. 

To make their job easier, Opkey’s QLM provides a platform for testers and other stakeholders to create, track, and manage their manual test cases in one place. This functionality eliminates the need for extensive spreadsheets for manual test case management, enhancing productivity and collaboration within the organization.

Let's look into an example of creating a manual test case in QLM in a few easy steps. Here, we will create a test case on sign-in functionality for the Opkey University URL.

1. Navigate to the Test section in QLM.

2. Click the Create Test button and select Manual Test Case from the dropdown.

3. A Create Test Case page opens on the right. Enter the test name, set priority level, choose an assignee, add description, and click the Create button at the bottom.

4.  An empty manual test case is created. To add a step in the manual test case, click Add Step.

11. You can further upload attachments, like images, spreadsheets, videos, etc. by clicking the Attach button in the top panel. You can also add attachments to test steps by clicking the Upload Attachment icon available in the test step.

12. Once done, save all the steps. Now, you can run your test case. To start the execution of the Manual Test Case, click the Run button in the top panel.

Additional Features on the Test Case Page
Similar to an automated test case, you can link a user story, ticket, or test suite with your manual test case to link all the related processes associated with the testing of a feature.

Project managers, testers, or reviewers can also add comments or see audit trails of the test case. 

Reviewers can also change the state of the test case by selecting an option from the dropdown present in the right panel of the test case page.

You can add additional sections test case documents, integration mapping, or backup data by selecting from the More dropdown.
