Test Cases

Version history

Test cases in GitLab can help your teams create testing scenarios in their existing development platform.

Now your Implementation and Testing teams can collaborate better, as they no longer have to use external test planning tools, which require additional overhead, context switching, and expense.

Create a test case

Users with Reporter or higher permissions can create test cases.

To create a test case in a GitLab project:

  1. Go to CI/CD > Test Cases.
  2. Select the New test case button. You are taken to the new test case form. Here you can enter the new case’s title, description, attach a file, and assign labels.
  3. Select the Submit test case button. You are taken to view the new test case.

View a test case

You can view all test cases in the project in the Test Cases list. Filter the issue list with a search query, including labels or the test case’s title.

Users with Guest or higher permissions can view test cases.

To view a test case:

  1. In a project, go to CI/CD > Test Cases.
  2. Select the title of the test case you want to view. You are taken to the test case page.
