How to work with Loops in Test Studio

You may come across many scenario in which you need to execute a particular test several number of times or in other words you need to execute certain number of test steps in a loop.

Let us consider following test. These are automated test steps for login functionality. Assume, you need to run step 2 to step 7 5 times with same data. In this scenario you need to execute from step 2 to step 7 in loop.

To automate above scenario Test Studio provides you out of box solution. You can automate above scenario with Logical Steps. In Test view you will find Logical Steps in Add section.

To put test steps in loop select loop Logical step from Add section and add a Logical Test Step in test. After adding logical step you can change Count. We are setting count as 5 here.

After setting Count drag and drop test steps you want to execute under test. Here we need to drag and drop step 2 to 7 in the loop. After dragging and dropping test steps test will look like below image. Now test step 2 to 7 will be executed 5 times.
