What are some heuristics to generate test scenarios to test a web application.
I don't understand how test scenarios are different from test cases or how to use heuristics to generate them.

Here's how I look at test scenarios and test cases.
My heuristics for generating test scenarios are pretty basic: I look at user patterns, common end-to-end tasks, and so forth. From that and the possible configuration options, I can generate an endless list of potential test scenarios.
Some examples of the heuristics I use:
I don't need anything more complex than this because these kinds of heuristics will generate complex scenarios once I start using different combinations of possible options.
