Data Driven Test
Often there might be may be a number of data sets that have to be used to test a feature of in your application. Now running the same test with different data manually is time-consuming
Data-driven allows testing your application with different inputs and validation values used within a test case to quickly and easily ensure that your application performs as expected with a range of data.
CloudQA provides user to test data in two different approaches
1. Using CSV file
CloudQA has a built-in option for data-driven testing that allows you to upload a CSV spreadsheet file with rows of values corresponding to variables in your test cases(s).
Below is the procedure create and execute data driven test
Click on Custom Execute of a test case in actions column
Select the checkbox "Use a CSV file for Data Driven testing"
Download file template, provide data and save the file on disk.
Choose the file with data
Execute the Data Driven Test
2. Using Random variable
You can reuse a test case with different values by using Random Variables.
A test case with the creation of a user always requires new sets of data, to re-execute the test case. Instead of changing values every time in edit test case or changing in the application, you can use random variables.
How does it work?
- Go to Edit Steps of a test case, Navigate to the step type in the test case
- Clear the value and type "__"(Double underscore) and auto suggest will show up all random options
- Pick the random option based on requirement and save the test case
