Screencast: Test Automation with Test Collab

Announcements,Testing Tips 5 Comments

Ok first things first: What’s the main problem with most test automation techniques are: they do not offer very well interface, so you don’t have a good workflow around them in order to execute and extract meaningful information from them, most of time these tests end up being forgotten in build process or gets too old with time without ever being updated. Nor are they integrated well around your manual testing process. Writing automated test case is too damn easy, but difficult part is collecting insights and meaningful data from them over time. See this screencast and find out how Test Collab can solve your test automation worries: (small note: this is my first screencast, so please excuse bad voice quality)

To enable this feature in your account, go to Settings > General Settings, then check ‘Enable Test Automation’ and hit ‘Save’. Refresh once to see the ‘Remote Executors’ link under ‘Settings’ tab.

    That looks nice – however I’m not sure how to get started. Do you have a tutorial?

  • Tarun

    I use selenium like you did in this video but all my test cases are HTML, can I still use automation feature?

    Another question: Is there anyway to randomize the test execution across all online machines?

  • Abhimanyu Grover

    @Will If you have an account with us already – simply go to the knowledgebase from help page, then see “How to install remote executor” article.

    @Tarun Yes, you can. Selenium HTML tests can be triggered by following command:

    java -jar selenium-server.jar -htmlSuite “*firefox” “localhost” “C:\project\test.html” “C:\tmp\results.html”

    Specify this command in your project’s test automation settings. And specify “C:\tmp\results.html” as file to collect post-execution as an artifact.

    Isn’t it possible to schedule the test runs automatically? I tried finding it in my account – but couldn’t find anything related to schedules.

    The scheduling feature is not developed yet – but its on our list.
