Adding or Editing Manual Test Steps

Add or edit manual test steps of a test or a shared steps object in the Steps page.

To add or edit a manual test step:

  1. For a shared object, click Tests > Libraries in the menu. For a test, click Tests > Details View in the menu.
  2. Select the node for which you want to add or edit steps in the Tests or Libraries tree.
  3. Click the Steps tab.
  4. Click on the test step that you want to edit, or use the icons on the Steps toolbar to insert a new step. The details of the test step are shown in the Edit Step view.
  5. Edit the name, action description, expected results, and step properties of the test step in the corresponding fields. You can insert values from data sources into manual test steps in the form of parameters (see Adding a Data Source Value to a Manual Test Step). Parameters use the syntax ${<name>}, for example ${username}. When converting a manual test to a keyword-driven test, these parameters are automatically added to the generated keyword.
    Note: Silk Central supports HTML formatting and cutting and pasting of HTML content for Description fields.
  6. Perform one of the following actions to finish editing the test step:
    • Click OK and New Step to save your changes and add a new step after the current one.
    • Click OK to save your changes.
    • Click Cancel to revert your changes.
