S01E11 — Allure in Action

In the previous episode, we’ve finished writing Test Cases for JIRA tickets (credentials to access the JIRA board can be found in the S01E07 — Translating JIRA to Selenide section).

If you couldn’t come up with your solution for the Test Cases, or you’d like to follow the Test Automation Framework tutorial from this episode — feel free to clone the GitHub repository with the code from here: https://github.com/n4bik/test-automation-framework/tree/Magic-ClientTest

In the real world after writing each Test Case you’d commit your changes and push them into a specific git branch. After that, you’d most probably create a Pull Request (if you’re using GitLab) or a Merge Request (if you’re using GitHub) to proceed with merging your code branch to the master/develop (depends on your company’s policies/practices).
