Manual and Gherkin Test Steps


I am trying to migrate tests from one octane instance to another using the API interface.

I am not able to export the test steps.

How can I view and import the steps of a manual or a gherkin test?

You can retrieve / set the test steps / scripts via this resource:


If you create scripts: Actually there was an error in Octane that you had to set a comment or else get an error. Not sure if that's fixed.

You can have a look at the GDPR Content Pack - download at - in function fktImportTests to see an example how you can set test scripts / steps.
