How do I run tests?

There are a few possible ways to run tests in Testuff:

  1. Tests page – choose the relevant test, hover it with the mouse and a menu will be displayed, click on the dot’s circle to Run the test. The Test Runner page will be displayed, and it will be added to the run history of the test. (Fig. 1)
  2. Labs page – choose the relevant test, hover it with the mouse and a menu will be displayed, click on the dot’s circle to Run the test. If you run a test that has been assigned to someone else, it will be automatically reassigned to you.
  3. My Tasks page – choose the relevant test, hover it with the mouse and a menu will be displayed, click on the dot’s circle to Run the test. All tests that have been assigned to you (in labs or not through a lab), or tests that you started running by yourself, will show up here.
  4. Requirements page – choose the relevant test, hover it with the mouse and a menu will be displayed, click on the dot’s circle to Run the test.

(Fig. 1)

Check mark a test and a menu with several options will be displayed. You may either assign the test, or change the status topassed, failed, blocked, won’t-do, to give the test a status without running it step-by-step, and without opening the Test Runner.

Now that the test runner is open, what do I do?

    • Mark steps as either passed, failed, or blocked.
    • If you mark a step as failed the Defect Reporter will launch so that you can report a defect, or Link an existing defect. If you don’t wish to do so, just close it and the step will remain in failed status. No defect will be reported.
    • If you mark a step as blocked, consider using the comments editor, from that step, to explain this status.
    • Using the clip icon, you may attach any file to the test.
    • The Test Runner also allows you to add videos to bug reports so that you can see precisely how to recreate a bug. Click on the three dots menu option and follow instructions.









Can I edit a test during a test run?

Simply click the three dots menu, and select the Edit Test option at top of the runner. Edit the test, and save it. The test run will change accordingly. Note that if you edit the test from a different location, such as the test tab, it won’t affect the test run unless you use the Synchronize with test menu option in the Test Runner.

Managing Comments

You can add a comment to the test step while running it, by clicking the comments icon: .

Use it to add information about load time, references you may want to add or any other information you wish to keep with the test run. All comments can be then viewed as part of the test history, and in the comments editor.

To add comments at test level, not for a specific step, use the comment icon on top left of the Test Runner page.
