What is UI?
UI refers to the screen captured during test creation. By activating element selection mode from the UI, you can capture UI elements and select them to create a test.
*You can also create a test by selecting UI elements from a cloud terminal/browser while in element selection mode.
Check the UI used for a step
When you click the step you want to check, the corresponding UI is displayed, and the specified UI element blinks red within that UI.
Check all UIs
You can check all captured UIs on UI List.
Hover over a UI to check the number of test cases using that UI.
UIs can also be grouped into a section. (See here for detailed instructions)
Switching the display format
You can switch the display format by clicking Change to list/grid in the upper left corner.
Merging and deleting UIs
You can also merge similar UIs or delete unused ones. (See here for detailed instructions)
What is Shared UI?
A UI that can be used in other test cases within the same project. In contrast, normal UIs are restricted to use only in their specific test case.
Changing to a Shared UI
Open UI List and drag & drop the target UI into the Shared UI area to change it into a Shared UI.
It is also possible to bulk change UIs into Shared UIs while creating a shared step.
In addition to UIs, sections can also be shared.
Select ︙ > Share with other tests for the section you want to share.
The section will be shared, and all UIs in it will be shared UIs.
Benefits of Shared UI
When a process on a screen is executed in multiple test cases and that screen undergoes changes:
- Using different UIs for each: Each UI needs to be changed individually.
- Using a Shared UI: Only the Shared UI needs to be changed.
This approach reduces the maintenance effort for test cases.
In such scenarios, the Reupload feature can be used to easily replace the UI.
