Test Case For Password Reset Test Case Template
Password reset test cases were asked in the interview for candidates with one year experience. This question was sent to me on my twitter, so I decided to write a post about it. I will list some of the typical test scenarios you can use to test the password reset page.
Considering the question is perfect to go with the login page test cases, you may want to pick a mail system to make your test cases specific and unique. In this post, I am using the Outlook mail service for writing the test case. There is a high chance that the system will change shortly on password changing methods.
