Editing Variants in Test Configurations

Use

You can:

Ў        The fields of a variant to the corresponding fields of a variant. The corresponding fields have the same parameter names.

Ў        A single field to a single field. The parameter name in the test configuration need not be the same as that in the test data container.

Ў        All fields of a parameter to single field. The parameter name in the test configuration need not be the same as that in the test data container.

where the parameter name, alias, and variant all refer to a test data container.

If you chose one variant from the test data container, all the select variants in the test configuration are affected.

If you chose several variants from both test data container and test configuration, the one nearest the top of the list for the test data container affects the one nearest the top of the list for the test configuration, the second nearest affects the second nearest, and so on down the list.

If more variants were selected from the test data container than from the test configuration, the surplus ones have no effect.
