How To Manage Your Parameters in Database?

To manage your parameters in the database, choose the Add Parameter icon. You have the option to add a parameter for an existing test step or define your own.

Add Test Case Input Parameters from an Existing Test Parameter


From the existing test steps navigate to the field you would like to parameterize.  This will determine the Name, Title, Default value and Editor type from the field you have chosen.  This is based on the information Provar has for the field you have chosen. All of these fields can be overridden. Once you select OK to add the parameter, the name variable will be added to the test case in place of the value. Then you can manage your parameters from an existing parameter

Define Your Own Test Case Parameter


If you do not want to link the variable to an existing test step, you can define the values manually and choose an editor from the drop down list.  You can then manually add the Name variable to the fields in your test using Content Assist (CTRL+ Spacebar) in the callable test.

Add Test Case Output Parameters


Variables created within the Callable test case are not automatically visible to the calling test.  If you would like to pass a variable back to a calling test you can create a Test Case Output Parameter.  Choose the Add new Test Case Output Parameter and choose which field you would like to return.  All fields are then defaulted, but can be overridden if required.
