Run a script from TestManager

When you run a script, TestManager creates a temporary suite, runs the suite, and removes the suite after the run is completed. You can run a script either from the TestManager Test Scripts window or from the TestManager File menu.

To generate test case results, run the test caseĀ instead of the script. When you run a script, TestManager does not generate test case coverage results (even if the script is associated with a test case).
