Updating Setup/Tear down scripts

Hi there,
Is it possible to update the scripts inside the setup/teardown section using a groovy script?

For example:
I have a teardown script that needs to be run at the end of each test case. To copy this script into each test case, can I use a groovy script?
Currently I am manually copying the script into a new test case every time I add a test case. If I have a groovy to do this, I was wondering if I can run that groovy step alone?

Any inputs related to this will be helpful.

    You can certainly do that:

    testRunner.testCase.testSuite.project.getTestSuiteByName('MyTestSuite').getTestCaseByName('MyTestCase').setSetupScript(' "setup"')
    testRunner.testCase.testSuite.project.getTestSuiteByName('MyTestSuite').getTestCaseByName('MyTestCase').setTearDownScript(' "teardown"')

    If you are using the pro version, you can also configure the TestRun beforeRun and afterRun events to execute a script, which avoids having to copy anything to your test cases.

    If you are using the free version, here is another suggestion. Store your setup and teardown scripts in files, then in the project Load script put code like this:

    def su = new File("setup.txt").text
    def td = new File("teardown.txt").text

    project.getTestSuiteList().each { testSuite ->
    testSuite.getTestCaseList().each { testCase ->

    This will cause every test case's setup and teardown scripts to be replaced when the project is first loaded.

      Is there a way to set up tear down script at project level using groovy.


      Thanks in advance,
