Move or Copy Tests Between Test Classes

After you define a test within one test class (Unit, Integration, System, Acceptance, Inspection or Scenario), you might decide that the test either is better suited to another test class, or forms a good template for tests in other classes. If so, you can either move or copy the test to the other class lists.


Click on the element containing the test records.


Construct > Testing > Tests > <test class> > Right-click on test to move/copy

Start > Explore > Browse > Element Browser > Testing > <test class> > Right-click on test
