How to parameterize "Test name" or "Step name"?

Jump to solution

Hello,

is it possible to parse parameter into Test name or Step name during run of Execution Plan ?

Use case:
I need to test BI report contains couple of sheets with different name.
It is confusing, when I run Execution plan including data-driven TC and it has generated TCs with the same names "Check header and footer on the sheet". I would like to have TC with the name like "Check header and footer on the sheet ${SheetName}".


Thank you in advance,

David Csikkel

Hi David,

Currently it is not possible to pass parameters and use these as Test Case or Test Step names.

You can use a Name column on your spreadsheet, use this as your Key Column, and whenever you bring this in to Silk Central, using the option 'Each data row is a single test' each Test Case will have the name of this column.

If you have any issues with this let us know.

Thanks,

Matthew
