Test Import

This section describes how to import tests from Microsoft Excel into Silk Central.

Silk Central enables you to import tests from Microsoft Excel (Excel) into any container or folder in the Tests area and then maintain and execute all included tests in Silk Central. The import is a one-time event.

Before you can import tests, you need to create a test file in Excel. For more information, see Test File.

Silk Central uses the information stored in the Excel file and in a mapping file to determine what data to store. Silk Central uses a mapping file to map the tests in the Excel file to the tests in the Tests area. A default mapping file named TestPropertiesDefaultMapping.xml is preselected for the import. You can choose your own customized mapping file to map your tests. For more information about mapping files, see Editing the Test Mapping File.
