Test

This is the action associated with the Test step type.

Exec

Description

Calls another test or library test.

Specify the child test name in the Recognition field and one or more test case names in the Value field, separated by commas.

You can also click in the Recognition field then click the elipsis icon and select a test case to automically populate the Recognition and Value fields with the test name and the test case name.

Test.Exec supports the use of parameters that enable you to pass dynamic values from a calling test to a library test.

Right-click the test name in the Recognition field and select Open Test to open the child test.

Use the #IGNORE reserved word in the Value field to skip the call to the child test for a given test case.

See Using Parameters with Library Tests.
