This section explains how to manage tests in Silk Central.

A test, or test case, is a set of input values, execution preconditions, expected results and execution postconditions, developed for a particular objective or test condition, such as to exercise a particular program path or to verify compliance with a specific requirement [after IEEE 610]. Silk Central supports various test types, and tests can be structured in several ways. The Tests area enables you to maintain control over tests across the system development life-cycle. You can create, schedule, and manage both automated tests and manual tests. You can upload and associate files and links as attachments to test containers and tests. You can easily associate found issues with the tests that led to their discovery. You can also track the full change history of the test in the area.
