Best Practices – Folder Structure in Worksoft Certify

As we can only share / re-use processes within any given Project in Certify, the best option for end to end testing is to have a single Certify Project.

Below is the proposed folder structure for a typical Project:

Folder Description
1.1 – Integrated Tests This folder will contain final / approved versions of test scenarios/business flows. In Worksoft, Integrated Tests act as driver scripts that call one or more transactional tests in sequence and pass in global data elements. The folder will be secured so that only Admins can make changes and promote content from Staging. Sub-folders for each functional team will be present to keep the content organized.
1.2 – Transactional Tests This folder will contain final / approved versions of transactional tests. In Worksoft, transactional tests are the reusable components that make up test scenarios (Integrated Tests). Transactional Tests may also have associated local data inputs. The folder will be secured so that only Admins can make changes and promote content from Staging. Sub-folders for each functional team will be present to keep the content organized.
1.3 – Utilities Utilities are elements of logic that can be re-used within Integrated Tests or Transactional Tests. The folder will be secured so that only Admins can make changes and promote content from staging.
1.4 – Master Content As part of the license agreement with Worksoft, we’ll have access to an existing library of SAP test cases in Certify that will be stored in this folder. Content that is useful from this library can be copied into staging in order to build transactional tests / integrated tests. The folder will be secured with the expectation that there will not be a need to make changes to this content.
2.1 – Sandbox The sandbox area is where most Certify users will be working, as this is the preferred location for integrated tests and transactional tests development. Each user will have their own sub-folder under the Sandbox. In order to promote to the 1.x level, content must first be executed successfully in a user’s sandbox folder. Users will have full access to their sandbox folder and read access to other sandbox folders.
