Avo Assure - Master User Guide v23.1.0

Design Test Steps Screen overview

The Design Test process involves performing a combination of actions on objects identified in the Application Under Test (AUT) and validating that the results of these activities meet the expected outcomes.
Traditionally, test case automation requires that the actions that need to be performed be scripted or programmed. This is in addition to the framework that needs to be designed.
Avo Assure is a platform that addresses these key issues by providing an inbuilt framework and scriptless test case authoring, reducing the total cost of ownership. This approach empowers all users to define and execute their tests without the need to write any code, freeing them from the automation specialist bottleneck.
In addition to scriptless test case authoring, Avo Assure enables the user to verify the test case authored in different environments (browsers, emulators, devices), add dependent test cases already present, and also change the object properties if required.
The design test steps screen includes the Header, Top Ribbon bar, Action bar, Right Chevron, and Canvas.
