You have specified your Tests and organized them using Test Sets or the Test Repository. Now, you want to know how to address the planning phase of your testing properly.

You may start by creating a Test Plan, then create the Tests and add those Tests to the Test Plan.

Or you may know beforehand that you plan to have regression Tests and Security Tests (still before those Tests are even created), and you need to dynamically assign them to a Dynamic Test Plan as soon as the team creates them.

Dynamic Test Plans are only available in Xray Enterprise.

Planning your testing also depends on the methodology and process you're adopting.

Below are some planning examples. Feel free to adapt these to your internal process to fit your team better.

You will find specific examples using the Dynamic Test Plans concept available with Xray Enterprise in each example.
