We can create a test plan in TestLink outlining how to test the application. Once we have created a test plan we can start to add test cases to the test plan, and then execute the Test plan.
A build in TestLink is an execution of a test plan. Once the test plan is executed you are not allowed to edit the test cases of this test plan.
Steps for creating a Test plan:
Click on the Test Plan Management option available under the Test Plan box on the right of the screen.
Test Plan Details
Create a Test Plan with the name for example Sample Test Plan, add a description, and make sure that Active and Public are checked.
It is recommended that the description field be used to document links to project plans and related documentation, lists of features to be tested, risks, etc. We can create a new test plan from an existing one. The items that are copied include builds, test cases, priorities, milestones, and user roles. Test plans can be deactivated (i.e., editing and changing of results change are not allowed). Deactivated test plans are visible only via ‘Reporting’ and this page.
