Internal Test Case

A test is generated for the basic path and each alternate and exception path in the scenario, and added to the selected element.

In addition, for each step in the basic, alternate and exception paths that has a value in the Results column, a test is generated and added to the selected element.

A diagram is created under the selected element, to which the selected element and a Note (showing the element's Structured Specification) is added.

The created tests are displayed in the Test Scripts compartment of the selected element on the diagram.

Another way to view these tests is to click on the element and display the Testing window.

These generated tests are written to the Scenario test tab of the Testing window; you can move the tests to another test-type tab if required.
