In this article, we learn what is test scenario in software testing is and the difference between test cases and test scenarios.
What is Test Scenario in Software Testing?
Test Scenarios in software testing are mostly what to test.
It covers end to end functionality of a software application in liner statements.
The test scenario in software testing is a high-level classification of testable requirements.
If we have requirements and desired output then how to achieve it, we have different ways, those ways are called scenarios.
Suppose we have to purchase AC from Flipkart or amazon.
Then we have different ways for payment:
- Product (AC) – Credit Card – Purchase (Way1)
- Product (AC) – Debit Card – Purchase (Way2)
- Product (AC) – Internet Banking – Purchase (Way3)
Now, the Requirement is for payment and product purchase.
Scenarios are Way 1, way 2, and way 3.
Checking all these functionalities in detail (positive and negative cases) is the test case.
In test scenarios mostly positive conditions are taken and in test cases positive and negative are both taken.
