Often we have test cases that are defined that have multiple data points that need to be validated. For example, we have one test called “create a validate order”, and involves two different order types, for example “hardware” and “software”.
Each of these has the exact same steps, just different inputs and expected results. If it were just two points, I might think that we would just create two different test cases, but we have some scenarios where we need to test 40 different data points, and duplicating the same steps for each would be a nightmare when it came to making a change to those steps.
This becomes more important for us when we’re using TestRail to track automated data-driven tests, where results for 10 different scenarios pile up against one test case.
Is there a way to recognize multiple sets of test parameters or scenarios against one test case? In most cases these different data points would be specific to one test, so I don’t believe “configurations” would help us here.
