Step 2 of 4

Compiler Suite Steps tab is consistent with the Test Script Steps screen.  

This is where you will build your Test Script using variables.

Add variables using Square brackets. [ ] you can use variables in the following fields:

  • Test Script Name
  • Description 
  • Expected Result


Each variable will become a column in the Compiler Template Data screen (this is the next step of the process - Step 3).

The variables created in the Test Script Template must be unique. This means that if you create a variable i.e. [age] wherever you use this in the Test Script Template it will have the same value. 

  • If the square brackets contain a space, this will not be recognised as a variable, e.g [application url] will not be recognised, but [application_url] will.
  • Variables are case sensitive, e.g [age] would be treated separately to [Age].
  • If a variable only relates to an Expected Result, only add the variable in the Expected Result column of the Steps screen

Using Variables in Test Script Name field

  • Using variables in the Test Script Name field helps to make the Test Scripts more descriptive when they are generated.

  • Depending on the data set used, the above example would create the Test Script Name as below.

  • Premiums for 250,000, Female, 30 year old paying Weekly.

  • The variables will change for each Test Script Name depending on the data table

Variables in Description and Expected Result fields 

  • The variables created in the Test Script Template must be unique.This means that if you create a variable i.e. [age] wherever you use this in the Test Script Template it will have the same value.

  • If you want to have a generated value for your Expected Result step, you need to add a unique variable that is only in the Expected Result field and not in Test Script Name, or Description field.

  • In the example above [Premium] is only in the Expected Result field for Step 5.

  • The other variables used are in the Test Script Name, Description and Expected Result fields.

  • You can have more than one Expected Result data column.

  • The Expected Result generated values can only be used in Option 1: Row by Row for Test Script generation ( this is in the Data screen, which is the next step in the process - Step 3). 

Once you have created your Test Script template, click Next.
