Case Plans

SeleniumBase Case Plans 🗂️

🗂️ SeleniumBase Case Plans is Test Case Management Software that uses Markdown tables for displaying test plans directly in GitHub (and other source code management systems that support Markdown format).

🗂️ The case_summary.md file is generated from individual Case Plans that exist in the case_plans/ folders of your repository. (See the example below to learn how the Case Summary file may look.)


Example of a case_summary.md file:

Summary of existing Case Plans

🔵 8 Case Plans with customized tables
2 Case Plans using boilerplate code
🚧 1 Case Plan that is missing a table

🗂️ Before you can generate a case_summary.md file that includes your existing Case Plans, first you'll need to select which existing tests you want to create boilerplate Case Plans from. For that, you can use the SeleniumBase Case Plans GUI:

sbase caseplans

🗂️ Once you are running the Case Plans GUI, select the existing tests that need Case Plans, and then click: Generate boilerplate Case Plans for selected tests missing them. For each selected test that didn't already have a Case Plan file, one will be generated. Each new Case Plan file starts with default boilerplate code with a Markdown table. Eg:

``proxy_test.py::ProxyTests::test_proxy``
---
| # | Step Description | Expected Result |
| - | ---------------- | --------------- |
| 1 | Perform Action 1 | Verify Action 1 |
| 2 | Perform Action 2 | Verify Action 2 |

🗂️ When rendered as a Markdown table, the result looks like this:

proxy_test.py::ProxyTests::test_proxy

# Step Description Expected Result
1 Perform Action 1 Verify Action 1
2 Perform Action 2 Verify Action 2

🗂️ Markdown tables are flexible, but must be constructed correctly to be displayed. For a Markdown table to render, it's important that you place pipes (|), dashes (-), and spaces in the correct locations. If you want a line break in a step, use <br />. If you want an empty step, put a space between pipes, eg: | |.

🗂️ Here's an example of a Case Plan for my_first_test.py:

my_first_test.py::MyTestClass::test_swag_labs

# Step Description Expected Result
1 Log in to https://www.saucedemo.com with standard_user. Login was successful.
2 Click on the Backpack ADD TO CART button. The button text changed to REMOVE.
3 Click on the cart icon. The Backpack is seen in the cart.
4 Click on the CHECKOUT button.
Enter user details and click CONTINUE.
The Backpack is seen in the cart on the CHECKOUT: OVERVIEW page.
5 Click on the FINISH button. There is a Thank You message and a Pony Express delivery logo.
6 Log out from the website. Logout was successful.

🗂️ After you've created some Case Plans, you can use the Generate Summary of existing Case Plans button in the Case Plans GUI to generate the Case Plans Summary file.

🗂️ The generated Case Plans summary file, case_summary.md, gets created in the same location where the Case Plans GUI was launched. This is NOT the same location where individual Case Plan boilerplates are generated, which is in the case_plans/ folders. The case_plans/ folders are generated where individual tests live, which means that if you have your tests in multiple folders, then you could also have multiple case_plans/ folders. A case_summary.md file may look like this when rendered:

🗂️ When calling sbase caseplans, you can provide additional arguments to limit the tests that appear in the list. The same discovery rules apply as when using pytest. Eg:

sbase caseplans
sbase caseplans -k agent
sbase caseplans -m marker2
sbase caseplans test_suite.py
sbase caseplans offline_examples/
