In this tutorial, we will learn the steps involved to assign platform to test cases and Test plan in TestLink tool. We can create platform on the Platform management page.
Note that platforms assigned to test plan has impact on test metrics.
When we assign N platforms to a test case, a test case must be executed N times and is considered as N test cases on test metrics.
For Example: If a tester assigned to execute test case Proj-TC1
on platform X,Y and Z, then the tester has to execute three test cases.

Select the Test Project from the drop-down list.
Click on the Add / Remove Platforms dashboard link.
We can see two lists of platforms.
