In addition to the Gherkin Examples data-table driven Scenario Outline sections, Hexawise Automate will now generate a Scenario outline for every test case in the exported feature file whenever any step in the Scenario references the test cases with either the parameter syntax:

<Parameter name>

or the parameter value syntax:

{[Parameter name]Parameter value}
