Creating scenario tests

Record a set of interactions for a case type or portal in scenario tests. You can run these tests to verify and improve the quality of your application.

Create a test ruleset in which to store the scenario test. For more information, see Creating a test ruleset to store test cases.

      When you select the case type, a new case of that type is created.
