  • A Test Set is a collection of Test Cases
  • A chatbot in Botium Box is a set of capabilities to tell Botium how to connect to a single instance of a chatbot
  • A test project is a combination of test sets and a chatbot — the specification of a test environment
  • A test session is the process of sending test sets to a chatbot and asserting the correctness of the results
  • A device set is a collection of device or browser specifications to be used for user interface testing
