9. Working with Function Libraries

Function Library is a reusable component which can be used multiple times across same or different Test Cases. These functions are user-actions which can be repetitive. You can reference input and output parameters corresponding to the function. This OpKey module is flexible, scalable and robust in nature i.e. function(s) made in this module can be further used among different Test Cases in the form of test steps.

For example: For a shopping portal web-application, four function libraries can be created. One Function library can be for logging into the portal, other for searching the product, third for buying a product and the last one for logging out of the portal. These function libraries can be used in different test cases individually.
