Test suites

Learn how to organize your tests into test suites and manage their running sequence

Test Suites give you the flexibility to manage the order between tests. You group them in suites so that you can create different groups of tests. This capability makes it easy to select which tests will be included in your suite as well as determine the order in which they will run.

  1. Navigate to Test List > Suites.

Running your Test Suite

Using CLI

In order to execute a test suite, you'll need to specify the test suite name in your CLI command like this:

--suite "Tutorial Demo"

Read more about running CLI here.

Using Scheduler

You can run your suite from Testim scheduler.
Read here to see how.

Note:

If you use parallel in your command, the order of the run is no longer guaranteed.
