Scandium Features & Concepts

In this article, we will take a look at the features Scandium offers and some of the terms and concepts you need to get familiar with.


A project in Scandium is how you organize and manage your resources on Scandium. As a Scandium user, you are able to create multiple projects for different purposes. E.g. you can have a project for your production environment, a project for your staging/testing environment etc. Or perhaps different projects for different teams.

When you create an account on Scandium, a default project is created for you, you can rename this project or add new ones.

Test Cases

A test case is a recorded user journey. A test case defines a collection of steps carried out to satisfy a particular user journey. For example, a test case can be created to test how the “Add to Cart” feature of an e-commerce app works. A test case will also often be referred to as a test scenario or simply scenario.

Scandium allows you to create as many test cases as you need for your app within a project.


With folders, you can group related test cases for easier identification. Folders work similarly to the folders on your computer. You can have multiple folders created.

Test Steps

A test case is made up of multiple test steps. When creating/recording a test, each action on your application is converted to a step. A step is also referred to as an Event. Examples of test steps include “click”, “type”, “mouse scroll” etc.

Test Runs

Recording your test case is only half of what needs to be done. The purpose of creating a test case is so you can run/replay the scenario to validate for success or failure.

A test run on Scandium shows you the result of executing/running/replaying an existing test case.

You can run your test cases using the Scandium Browser Extension (which runs locally on your computer), or run remotely on the Scandium Cloud Runner.

NB: At the time of writing this article (07-03-2023), you can only run tests locally.
