A living documentation is a way to share the definition of your features and have a common support for dialogue for your business and tech teams.
NOTE this feature is available only if BDD mode is enabled on your project.
You will be invited to create your first documentation when navigating to the well-named section of your project:
If you already have some, you can use the “new” button to create a new one
A living documentation is created (and synced) from a test run of your project, so its content always reflects the latest definition of your features (e.g if you generate your documentation from your CI/CD test run)
A folder of the test run will become a feature (if it contains at least a scenario or a description), or a simple hierarchy level (or both). A test of the test run will become a scenario
NOTE When a test run is synchronised, the associated living documentation will be updated as well!
A feature page looks like this:
- Feature title, description and tags
- Background (computed from the “Setup” in your test run folder if there is one)
- Scenarios list
Let’s focus on scenarios:
- Scenario title, description and tags
- Steps list
- A free-text argument
- A step table argument
If your scenario contains a datatable, the living documentation will display it as the couple scenario outline / examples :
You can get the latest modifications of a feature by clicking on the “History” menu
A new item will appear in the timeline when:
- The feature has been created
- The feature has been renamed
- The description of the feature has been updated
- One of its scenario has been created, updated or deleted
