How to create a manual test tree structure via the office Import Tool

Resolution:


The office Import tool relies on the manual test styles in order to determine what each object actually is and also to determine the intended structure of manual tests tree. The parent-child relationship between folders and between a folder and a manual test is defined using the “parent folder” style.

In order to assign a folder as a child of another folder – the parent folder structure will need to be declared after the child folder has been declared. Also in order to assign a manual test to a folder – the folder structure must be declared after the manual test name is declared and before the manual test description.

In the below example we want to create the following manual test tree structure:

To create this structure:

  • First create the folder “ParentFolder1”
  • Then create Child FolderA – this is a child of the ParentFolder1
  • Then create Child FolderB – which is a child of Child FolderA – It is required to specify the whole path – ParentFolder1 | Child FolderA
  • Then declare the manual tests
    • Manual - Test1
    • Manual - Test2
    • Declare the exact path to the Folder that the tests will be located
