    • ID: Unique for the project.
    • Serial No: This is shown as #
    • Action: Description of Test Step
    • Attachment for the Test Step: Typically this can contain reference images etc.
    • Expected Results: This field can be used to specify the expected results of a test step.
    • Internal Sources: This field specifies Internal Sources of the test step. Just click on "Internal Sources" column against a test step row to enter its Internal Sources.

Using Test Steps in Test Runs


  • Test Steps in the context of Test Run will include all Attributes as visible on the Test Case Tab.
  • The following additional attributes are available:
    • Actual Results
    • TS Attachment during execution
    • Status


  • Edit Actual Results and Status
  • Attach a file / image
  • Show / Hide Table Columns
  • The Test Case Status will be auto computed using the conditions specified for this instance of RMsis, using the feature "Auto Compute Test case status from Test steps" available in the Test Runs Tab.

  • The status of test cases within a test run will be automatically computed based on their test steps status using the conditions specified for this instance of RMsis when the test step window is closed.
    • By default, this feature is disabled.
    • In order to enable this feature,
      • Switch to RMsis Administration > Configuration > Application
      • Scroll down to "Auto Compute Test Case State" section.
      • Enable the checkbox "Auto compute Test Case status on Test Step window closure"

  • Reset Status To:
    • This feature can be used to bulk update status of multiple test steps.
    • In order to bulk update status of multiple test steps, 
      • Select the test steps and then click on "Reset Status To :"
      • A dropdown menu containing the possible status values will be displayed.
      • Select the appropriate status value.

Status Computation Rules

  • RMsis provides an option to automatically compute the status of a Test Case, based on the statuses of it's Test Steps.
  • The user has an option to override the computed status of a Test Case.
  • The rules can be specified as a global configuration under RMsis > RMsis Administration > Application Configuration > Status Computation Rules OR a project configuration under RMsis Home > Project Configuration.
  • The rules can be specified as a set in the following format
    • IF
      • STATUS OF Any TS | All TS
      • EQUALS Pass | Fail | Pass with Exception | Blocked | ???
    • THEN
      • SET STATUS of TC to
        • Pass | Fail | Pass with Exception | Blocked | ???

Creating new status computation rules:

New status computation rules can be created by following the steps mentioned below :

  • Click on the Any/All column of the first row in the table and select an option. 

  • Now click on the cell in the Test Step Status column and select an option. 

  • Now click on the cell in the Test Case Status column and select an option. 

  • The new status computation rule has been created. Click on the Enable check box to enable this rule. 

Note : 

  •  Rules will be applied from top to down.

  • Project wise rules will be having higher precedence over global rules.

  • If none of the rules matches, then test case status will be set to ??? .
