Automated tests

An automated test case in Allure TestOps is the outcome of the automated test’s results analysis. Allure TestOps generates test cases based on the information received from the test results and enriches these results with the meta information provided by your test framework.

You can get the most from your test results by using Allure Framework.

Scenario of an automated test is created in your code. To have the split of the actions in your test cases code into steps in the test cases, you need to use Allure Framework.

The concept of a step in the test case’s scenario is described in the documentation of Allure Framework here.
