Implementing Silk Central Keywords in Silk Test Classic

Before implementing Silk Central keywords, define the keywords as part of a keyword-driven test in Silk Central.

This functionality is supported only if you are using the Open Agent.

To implement a Silk Central keyword in Silk Test Classic:

  1. Create a project in Silk Test Classic with the same name as the keyword library in Silk Central, which includes the keyword-driven test.
  2. If the keyword library in Silk Central has no type assigned, click Upload Keyword Library in the toolbar to set the library type.
  3. Optional: To implement a specific keyword in Silk Test Classic from Silk Central, open the Keywords tab of the library in Silk Central and click Implement with Silk Test in the Actions column of the keyword.
  4. In Silk Test Classic, open the project and select the Keywords tab.
  5. In the Keywords tab, double-click the keyword-driven test. To update the Keywords tab with any changes from Silk Central, click Refresh.
  6. In the toolbar, click Record Testcase.
  7. Click Record.
    For additional information on recording, see Recording a Keyword.
  8. Record the actions for the first unimplemented keyword.
  9. When you have recorded all the actions for the current keyword, click Next Keyword.
  10. To switch between keywords in the Recording window, click Previous Keyword and Next Keyword.
  11. Click Stop. The Record Keyword-Driven Test dialog box opens.
Note: You cannot delete keywords or change the sequence of the keywords in a keyword-driven test from Silk Central, as these tests are read only in Silk Test Classic.
