*When using the Multi Level Cascade Select field for multi-level cascading select (>2 levels), picklists are not configurable within Enterprise Tester. Values will be pulled from a configured defect tracker e.g. JIRA. You must have a defect tracker configured in order to use this custom field.
See the specific section below for configuring Multi-Cascade Select fields.
To creating custom fields complete the following steps:
Name *: name used in the database and queries
Label *: label displayed on the screens
Select the custom field Type
Add a brief description
Further configuration is required when these custom field types are created:
Lists need to be created and are configured in the same way as other in-built drop down fields.
Refer to Managing Picklist Values.
Creating a Multi Level Cascade Select custom field is similar to creating any other custom field within Enterprise Tester. The values used to populate the picklist values for the Multi Level Cascade Select are pulled from the defect tracker e.g. JIRA. A defect tracker must be configured to create this custom field successfully.
Enterprise Tester may need to perform a “Refresh Lookup” before new custom fields in your defect tracker are available within Enterprise Tester. Please refer to Refresh Lookups.
To create a multi-cascade select custom field:
When you view the entity screen in Enterprise Tester (Incident, Requirement, Test Scripts etc) it will display the field with the cascading drop down values from the external system.
