QUESTION

 

Are there any plans in the future for global variables or choice lists that span all templates in TestSuite?

 

ANSWER

 

As of 5/23/19, the answer according to the TestSuite software development team is:

 

“We do not have any plans to create global variables or choice lists.  The complication with global definitions is that the templates are then dependent on those external definitions being installed on the machine.  The preference is to copy the definitions from one test to another.  This can be done by opening two copies of the TestSuite application, and using copy/paste to move the definitions.

 

However, we are interested in investigating ideas that have a general use case.  

 

We have had many requests to have the ability to define sub-workflows that can be used in multiple templates.  To do it justice, this needs to include local variables.  This is in our long-term vision, but we do not have a schedule we can publish.”
