We can assign key words as per test suit. It is not mandatory to assign key words to all test cases. For important test suit or test cases you can assign key words.
For example, you are having test suit as ‘Login Page’. In this suit you have created number of test cases but you want to filter the test cases which in fallen for checking password scenario. Thus, you need to assign a key word to these test cases as ‘Password’. This is basic idea about Key word.
