Define environments

Create environments describing the configuration of the system that is being tested.

Testing environments

You can create Environment entities that describe the company's testing environments. Users can then select an environment for their defects.

For example, when creating a defect for an issue found in the predefined environment Lab1, the submitter can select Lab1 in the Detected in environment field.

To provide more information about the environment, the user can also add Environment tags, such as Browser:Chrome. For details, see Environment tags.

Create environments

You create environments in the Release Management module. You can create an Environment entity for the current workspace, or for all workspaces in the shared space.

To define an environment:

  1. In the Release Management module, select the Environments tab.
  2. Perform one of the following:

    • Click + Environment to create an environment in your workspace.

    • Expand the + dropdown and select Shared Environment to create an environment for all workspaces in the shared space.

  3. In the Add dialog box, provide a name and description.

  4. Select other options to make your environment unique, such as environment tags, type, and stage type. Click Add.

Tip: Instruct testers to select the environment in which the defect was detected, in the Detected in environments field. For details, see Specify an environment for your defect.
