1. Add Step
  • Go to Edit steps of a test cases and click Add on any step. A new step will get added just below.
  • The dropdown menu contains the list of actions. This signifies the action to be performed such as click an element, make an assertion, add a custom script, accept or reject JavaScript alert and so on

  • When a step involves interacting with an element on the page, for instance clicking a button, CloudQA interacts with that element using a CSS selector. The selector for the target element is entered into the "CSS path" input at the top of the step

  • CloudQA has special feature in extension, Pick CSS to capture the CSS of targeted element

2. Usage of Actions
  • Click and Hover: When a step involves interacting with an element on the page, for instance click a button use step Click in the dropdown or to hover over an element use Hover

  • Type: When a step involves entering value into text field you can use Type

  • Assert: Click here to see how to add different kinds of assertions in a test case

  • Alert: CloudQA offers the users with a very efficient way to handle JavaScript alerts (Simple and Confirmation alerts). During recording these JavaScript alerts might not be captured, where CloudQA provides option to add an alert step, and gives two options to accept and deny the alert in the application.

  • Script: CloudQA gives you the ability to execute custom JavaScript within the test case. You can also use this functionality, along with JavaScript Date functions to create and use custom date strings in your test case.

  • Keypress: A "Keypress" step will allow you to choose from keystrokes like "Enter" and "escape".

  • Pause: There might be instances where you want to pause for a certain element/event to occur before taking the next step.

    • Static pause : Sometimes you want to wait a few seconds between the steps.
    • Wait till Java Script returns true : Unlike static waits, this will retry/wait until the script returns a true value (or) until the timeout(120sec) is reached
  • Take Screenshot: Takes a screenshot on demand when this step is used. This is useful when you switch off the default screenshot at every step.

  • RightClick: Few applications might have custom right click menu, Test recorder doesn't record right click, but the menu options are recorded. In this case you can use RightClick

  • DoubleClick: CloudQA supports DoubleClick operations in the browser. This is done using the DoubleClick action in the test editor.

  • SwitchToWindow: Used to switch to a window in a execution session by index of the window
  • CloseWindow: Used to close an active window

  • ImportStepsFrom: Every Test case created can be reused using import steps

  • Clear: To clear the content of a text field, you can use this step-type

  • Password: Used when a text field has to be masked, like password control etc..,


3. How to use Optional Step
  • Each step can be made optional, if you choose. This means that the test will continue execution, even if the step fails.

  • This can be useful in situations when dealing with behavior that only occurs a portion of time, like a modal dialog popping up.

  • Click to toggle ON/OFF to make a step optional


4. Conditional Execution

Sometimes you need to run some steps based on a condition. For example, you may want to fill a form only when the form is shown.

  • Add a condition to a step

  • You can specify your condition logic using JavaScript code.

      o If condition passes- step is executed
      o If condition does not pass- the execution skips the step
      o If condition throws error- the execution fails at that step
