How to: Attach a File While Running a Test

While you run a test using Test Runner, you have the option to attach files to the test, such as requirements for the application or log files that the application generates. The files can be attached to a test step.

The files can be useful as supporting material related to bugs to help isolate code defects. For more information, see How to: Submit a Bug using Test Runner.
