Enhanced call to test functionality (formerly Shared Steps) to boost reusability for large scale test cases libraries. It allows you to break down test cases into smaller, reusable pieces and then recombines these test cases to achieve larger end-to-end testing scenarios. Test cases can be referenced (called) in other test cases to create nested reusable structures. By doing so, the test team can combine as many variations as needed to test the application by both functional area and end-user workflow. Learn more here.
The brand new Test Data functionality unlocks Data-Driven testing (DDT) inside Adaptavist Test Management for Jira. DDT is test design approach where the test data (input and output values) are separated from the actual test case. DDT enables the repetition of the same sequence of test steps with the help of a data source in order to drive the input values of those steps and the expected values while verification steps are performed. Commonly, test cases are designed using variables in the test step level. A variable placeholder is added in the test step to receive the values from the data source instead of using hard-coded or fixed values. Learn more here.
Parameterization has been introduced to allow the users to create even more generic test cases (reusable modules). In essence, parameters are used to unlock more flexibility when calling or invoking test cases. You can invoke a reusable test case by passing a set of parameters, which can affect how input or output data are displayed or processed during the test execution. Eventually, parameters can contain default values, the tester should be able to change each one of the default parameters according to the context of the test at hand. Learn more here.
