Calling Shared Steps

To reduce the effort for maintaining the same test steps in various tests and projects, you can add shared steps from a library as a single step to a test or shared object.

You can only add a call to all steps in a shared object, not to a selection of them. When a call to a shared object is added, all shared steps are displayed as a single step in the calling test or shared object and you can add additional steps before and after the called steps. The initial shared steps are only displayed during execution of the referencing test. The shared object cannot be deleted. To delete the shared object, you first have to remove all calls to it.

The name of the shared object, whose steps are called, is displayed as the name of the step in the Steps page. Click on the name to access the called shared object.
