i have created a few steps that does stuff like verify preconditions and setup data, adn generate data needed in later steps. i call this group of test steps in 90% of my testcases. right now i have just copied the steps to the testcases whiich need it. but this will be a nightmare to maintain, i will have to make changes in all the copies if needed.
Is there a smart way to go about this ? du you have recomendations ?
There is a "Run TestCase" step that you can use for this. You should move all the common teststeps into a separate testcase, then use the "Run TestCase" teststep to run them. For documentation on doing this, go here. Good luck!
