Manual tests

An acceptance criterion has to be expressed very clearly, without any ambiguity. To respect this principle, Testerum uses the Given/ When/ Then convention, also known as the Gherkin syntax. Given [are the preconditions] When [a certain type of event, action or process which occurs] Then [the expected outcome that should happen]

Create a Manual Test Plan

In order to execute the Manual Tests you need to create a Manual Test Plan (img 2). A Manual Test Plan allows you select the tests that you want to be in the execution and to set a status on each test.

  1. Navigate to Manual in the top menu bar.
  2. Press Create new Test Plan button.
  3. Provide a name for this Manual Test Plan (mandatory). Ideally, your test name should contain the environment and the software version you are testing.
  4. Type in a description (subsidiary). For this field, Testerum uses Markdown for formatting text. Find more details about Markdown formatting here.
  5. Select the Manual Tests that you want to be part of this Test Plan.
  6. Press Save button.
  7. Your test will be listed in Active Executions panel and the details displayed on the right.
