Actions

Action: Set of Statements for perfoming a Task(s)
We divide our test into actions to streamline the process of testing.


Purpose of Actions:
For understandability

For reusing components

Types of Actions:
1) Non Re usable actions
2) Re usable actions
3) External actions

Operations on Actions:
• Creating Actions

• Splitting Actions

• Renaming Actions

• Deleting Actions

• Calling an Action

• Copying an Action

• Making an Action Reusable/Non Reusable

Creating an Action: Insert>call to new action>enter name of the action>click ok

1. Create required actions(ex login, insert,delte)
2. Prepare Scripts for those actions.

Splitting an action:
