Convert Actions into a Shared Step

A shared step is a work item that helps you save time on writing repeated steps in multiple test cases by reusing the same sequence of steps.

Along with creating a shared step as a work item, you can convert a sequence of steps in an already written test case into a shared step. To do that:

  1. Open a test case.

  2. Select the checkboxes next to the steps you want to convert to a shared step.

  3. Click Create shared step.

  4. In the opened dialog box, enter the name for the new shared step.

  5. [Optional] If you do not want to add a newly created shared step to the test case you are creating it from, select the Leave initial steps after creating a shared step checkbox. In this case, the shared step is saved into the test library, and the test case retains its initial steps.

  6. Click Create shared step.
