Howto: standard interface testing of multiple products

Postby dotNate » Tue Apr 28, 2009 7:14 pm

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for some advice on whether or not the following scenario is possible, and a recommended configuration too please...

I need to create a large number of test-cases for testing a standard interface. That part is easy. But, I need to test multiple products using the same test-cases. For example:

Suppose I have testcaseA, testcaseB, testcaseC and testcaseD. I need to perform all 4 tests on productA, productB, productC etc.

- I do need to be able to review the test results on a per-product basis.
- I do have a rather large test-case database (1000+) that I want to define only once, and maintain just one copy of.

I hope this makes sense. So far, from what I've seen of testlink it is a fantastic system, does almost everything I need, it's just this last part I would like an expert opinion on please.

Thank you in advance.

exec of TC against a Product means 1 Test Plan / Product.

So you can make a master copy of the TPlan and then make 4 copies from it for each product , add a custom field or a description to the Test Plan for that particular Product. Exec the TC from that Plan for that particular product.

Hope this makes sense.

Hope this would work fine for you...

Let there be one master Test Plan. Now follow these steps

[1] Add Test Cases to test Plan, [i.e. Add TEST CASE A,TEST CASE B,TEST CASE C and TEST CASE D
[2] Create a Build Under this Test Plan Specific to the PRODUCT A
[3] Carry out the Test Execution for this BUILD [In turn PRODUCT A]

Repeat Step 2 and 3 for PRODUCT B, PRODUCT C as well.

Finally you can extract the report with customized query.

Let me know if it works for you....

Happy TestLink User...!!!
