Script comments and log

Agilitest allows you to use advanced formatting of comments directly from the publisher.

The format used is HTML, so you can design your comments as you wish.

In addition, you can use the variables in your scripts to make intelligent comments.

There are three types of comments:

  • Script comment
  • Functional step
  • Execution log
