Converting Manual Tests to Automated Tests

You can convert a manual test to one of the supported automated test types, for example keyword-driven, Silk Performer, Silk Test Classic, NUnit, JUnit, and all installed plug-ins. The process carries manual test parameters over to the automated test, and adds automated parameters to the new automated test.

The manual test parameters that are carried over to automated tests are:
  • Name
  • Description
  • Assigned requirements
  • Assigned execution plans
  • Assigned issues
  • Attachments
  • Test steps

  1. In the menu, click Tests > Details View .
  2. Right-click the manual test in the Tests tree and select Automate with....
  3. Select the automated test type from the context menu.
  4. For information on filling out the dialog, see the appropriate topic in Creating Tests.
