This page was created after the DCAT Meeting September 2015, where a working group was formed to prepare the test plans for the DSpace 6 Testathon.

Ref - a short, unique reference that can be used in related JIRA tickets etc. example VIEW1
Category - an indication of the functional group a test belongs to. example VIEWING
Description - a step by step description of how the test should be executed
Expected outcome - the expected result after execution of the description
Test status - status of the last time this was tested. This column should be filled in with following vocabulary:
2014-09-12 : when a date is entered, the functionality was verified.
TEST UNCLEAR: the description of the test doesn't make it clear either what to test, or how a user can test this.
FEATURE MISSING: the described functionality couldn't be verified
UI PROBLEM: the feature is there and seems to "work", but there is a UI problem (nature of the problem clarified in comments)
NON COMPLIANCE: the test fails the expected results
DOCUMENTATION: feature seems to work but docs seem to be missing or incomplete
If you are doing a test later in time, you can overwrite the test status that someone had previously entered
Last tester - name of the person who executed the last test. The main goal of including the person here, is to make sure he or she can be contacted for further information about the test
Comments - free text field for additional comments. If the comments of the previous tester are not yet resolved or are still relevant in another way, you can leave them in and add your own comments in the same cell. When doing this, start your comment with your name, so people can see a different person added the next comment
JIRA tickets - links to JIRA tickets that are related to this test. These links should never be removed, so we still have the entire backlog on what has changed to these tests.
The spreadsheets are organized into different tabs. Each tab represents a "role" of a user that is able to execute all tests on the tab. The roles who need a higher level of authorization are more on the right. This means that a role on the right could theoretically also execute all of the tests on the tabs more on the left (but we're not targetting that actively right now).
Following integrations may not be enabled out of the box. They need to be configured to ensure they are "up and running" on demo.dspace.org.
Unless specified otherwise, the credentials that should be used for the tests are the ones listed on the demo.dspace.org/xmlui and /jspui homepages.
The reference browser for the tests is Google Chrome. However, there are possibilities to report browser compatibility issues with IE, Firefox and Safari.

following volunteers are looking after (co-ordinating) each of the roles, represented by tabs in the XMLUI test plan:
