The Test Case Template becomes Test Case when you add it to the existing Test Plan. The Add to existing Test Plan operation has the same mechanism of the Test Case creation as the Create Test Cases operation on Test Plan.

Update Test Cases

This operation updates all not executed Test Cases created from the given Test Case Template. The Update Test Cases operation can be useful if you made a mistake while writing Test Case Template and you want to change the content in the created Test Cases from given Test Case Template.

Due to the fact that Test Cases are updated by using Test Case Templates a table below lists the fields copied by default and those that can be updated using the Update TCs with fields from filter config setting from TestFLO settings.

Field type Default configuration Field configuration from filter
Summary yes yes
Description yes yes
Priority yes yes
Component/s yes (compared by name) yes (compared by name)

During the Test Cases update, you can decide whether you want to reset the Steps statuses to default. This option will not reset step statuses if you apply content changes only to existing steps in the Steps panel. If the change is about deleting or adding a step to the Steps panel, the statuses will be reset because this is a big interference in the content.

Steps

To use Update Test Cases operation:

  1. Click the Update Test Cases operation from Test information panel or select from menu More.
