Creating a Keyword-Driven Test in Silk Test Workbench

Use the Keyword-Driven Test Editor to combine new keywords and existing keywords into new keyword-driven tests. New keywords need to be implemented as visual tests or VB .NET methods in a later step.

  1. Choose File > New.
    The New Asset dialog box opens.
  2. Select Keyword-Driven Test from the asset type list.
  3. Type a name for the new asset into the Asset name field.
  4. Select the project in which the new asset should be included. By default, if a project is active, the new asset is created in the active project.
    Note: To optimally use the functionality that Silk Test Workbench provides, create an individual project for each application that you want to test, except when testing multiple applications in the same test.
  5. Click OK.
    The Keyword-Driven Test Editor opens.
  6. Perform one of the following actions:
    • To add a new keyword, type a name for the keyword into the New Keyword field.
    • To add an existing keyword, expand the list and select the keyword that you want to add.
  7. Press Enter.
  8. Repeat the previous two steps until the test includes all the keywords that you want to execute.
  9. Click Save.

Continue with implementing the keywords or with executing the test, if all keywords are already implemented.
