To know how to write a test plan one must first learn to plan a test. Planning test is a real thinker task. You should be asking a hell lot of question to learn about the domain of the project. You should learn about the stakeholders of the project. One part of planning consists of test estimation. Here is something that might get you started with it - ...

Yes, you can do that. For this you need to save your common/shared test steps in a new test case and then change it to a template using 'Mark as Template Test'. Then where ever you need these shared steps, open that test case and in the test step section of that case select the option 'Call to Test' and then select the shared test case template which you ...

Let me give some advice I got from James Bach. He likes to make the distinction between a test plan and the test plan document. A test plan document is the written form of the test plan. This can vary quite a bit depending on the company you work for and in my experience can range from lean or minimal to bloated (I’ve seen so many bloated test plan ...

I agree with milinpatel17' above answer about Test Plan. Test Plan is a detailed layout and strategy to test a product or application. Before you start writing a test plan, consider these points first: Why to test -- objective What to test -- scope How to achieve objective -- required time and money (with number of resources) What approach -- Automation, ...

I'm going to skip answering the parts of the question that do not make sense or are primarily opinion based. So, which plan should actually contain Risk Management, or it should be completely a separate document? Most software organizations don't do this at all or are not formal about it, so you can probably do whatever you want. If you think it ...

I am a BIG fan of feature toggles. It doesn't take too much work to mitigate the risks, and the benefits are well worth it. So my question is toggling unused feature enough to release untested code? No. Feature toggles are not enough to mitigate the risks posed by releasing completely untested code. However, when you test around that code, feature ...

The short answer is that you can never be 100% sure. The longer answer is that this is also true for every other part of the product- you test it but can never test it for every possible scenario. The even longer answer is risk management and mitigation- your developers and architects need to asses the risk in solutions A and B (feature flags vs. ...

What are the most important components/parts of a well-written test plan document for a testing project. Consider you are testing a Financial web app. As per IEEE 829 standards, the components of a Test Plan document should be : Test Plan identifier References Introduction Test Items Risks Items to be tested Features excluded for testing Testing ...

Smoke testing is the term teams I've been on used to describe the initial quick pass on brand new code (or at least a new build) to make sure nothing major is broken in a major way (that will block you from the majority of testing). This is the first step before you get into regression and rigorous new feature testing. You may consider Sanity Testing. ...

So is there any perfect test plan template which I can use for one website and I am only tester. No. There is no such thing as a "perfect test plan template". Instead of perfection, strive for "good enough for your needs". Since you are the sole tester, start out with something simple. Note what you are testing, when you are testing, the environment ...

So is there any perfect test plan template which I can use for one website and I am only tester I don't think you will find this perfect test plan on the web. It is upon you to modify the closest one to suit to your needs. I have found this website to be extremely helpful which searching for artifacts/resources related to SW Testing : Vietnamese ...

This is usually referred as A/B testing. I have personally tested this. With Feature Enabled - Testing performed for new feature and regression to ensure nothing is broken With Feature Disabled - Regression performed to ensure functionality remains intact. Automation / Required Manual tests will be run in case if this code is going to remain in production ...

Very interesting question. As per my experience as QA , I would like to suggest following : 1 - If you are releasing BETA version then you can stay with new feature and release it with new feature. So you can get more review about from users. 2 - If you are releasing main version then you should not release features which are untested means not tested by ...

The usual definition of a test plan is detailed here. The image you've posted, however, is exactly how Microsoft Test Manager is organized. You create a "test plan" (in their terminology this means the tests to be executed) for a certain release or sprint. In a test plan, you may have one or more test suites, which contain test cases. (Normally grouped in a ...

Coming to this from the safety critical side of the industry I would say that your Risk Management Plan should start with a Corporate level Risk Management Policy that states how you are going to manage the risk aspects of all of your work, for example how risks are categorized, what documentation, testing policies, etc., must be in place and what type of ...
