Handle conditional cases in your tests
Handling conditional cases may become important when you want your scenarios to be executed successfully under different circumstances. An example of that is a website whose functionality depends on the log-in state. You have to log in first, only then you can use the functionality.
The test scenario
- Go to https://katalon-demo-cura.herokuapp.com/
- If you are not logged in, go to Log in screen then log in into the system. Otherwise, skip this step.
- Select Hongkong CURA Healthcare Center in the Facility drop down
Record the scenario
1/ Start recording on Katalon Recorder
2/ On the Chrome's active tab, go to https://katalon-demo-cura.herokuapp.com/
Notes: Make sure that you are not logged in.
3/ Click on the hamburger menu then click on Login link
4/ Input the Username and Password that are on the screen
5/ Select 'Hongkong CURA Healthcare Center' in the Facility drop down
Then, you got this automated steps
6/ Run the test, it will be failed due to there is no Login link
7/ Manually log out the web, then run the test again, it should be passed
Add conditional statements
Manually add IF statement to check the log-in state. If user is already logged in, then we want to only select the value. Otherwise, we want to log in into the system first.
1/ Add a new test step after Open command
2/ Add storeElementPresent step to store a value into a variable
3/ Add IF statement after storeElementPresent command
4/ Add ELSE statement before Select facility command
5/ Run the test several times
The test case should be passed for both cases, logged and not logged in.
