Making edits one at a time can be tedious especially if you have a large number of Test Cases. One example is if there is a generic prefix it’s difficult to differentiate Test Cases using only the default prefix and sequence number. Adding meaningful prefixes can be helpful in adding clarity to generated Test Cases.
To address this concern, in the configuration section of the Crawler project there is a tab called ‘Naming Convention’. This allows you to search for a phrase that occurs in Test Cases generated by Crawler, and to then replace each instance where the searched phrase occurs, with a new phrase instead.
Input the current naming convention that you would like to update into the Search text field. For example the prefix ‘WELCOME_CONVO’. Input the desired new name into the Replace text field.
Click the + button to add the first search and replace, in this way you can add multiple search and replace rules at a time.
When you are ready to apply the rules click the ‘Save and Apply Replace Rules’ button. If you do not wish to apply the rules yet you can save your rules for later by clicking the Save button.
Points to remember:
If you re-run the crawler session, these rules will not be automatically applied. However they will be saved in this section and you can re-apply them from here if required.
If you makes an edit to the Test Case from the Test Case editor, this will not be overwritten by the search and replace feature.
