Create schedules

Use the Schedules tab to create schedules based on your operational needs, such as hourly, daily, and run once. You can then assign test suites to one or more schedules for test execution. For example, you might have a suite run nightly, weekly, and also run once for regression testing.

To create a schedule:

  1. In the Schedules tab, click Add schedule and define the schedule details.

    A schedule's status is Inactive as long as it is under construction.

  2. You can assign a release and milestone to the schedule.

    Note that this is only relevant for filtering and trends. The schedule continues to run even after the release or milestone's end date.

  3. In the Time scheduling section, define the Run mode which sets whether the schedule should run once, or if it is recurring.

    • If you choose to run the schedule once, specify the start time.

    • If you choose recurring, specify the start time, end time (optional), and interval.

      Tip: You can run a schedule once and see that it runs successfully, then edit the schedule and make it recurring.

  4. After creating a schedule, add tests suites. Click on the schedule ID link to drill down to its details. In the schedule's Test Suites tab, click Add Existing Test Suites to assign the schedule to one or more test suites.

    If a schedule is set to run immediately, it is delayed for three minutes to enable you to add test suites before running.

    Note: When a suite contains multiple tests, the tests are run serially or in parallel based on the Run mode field. For details, see Create and schedule a test suite.

  5. Within each schedule, the Schedule Runs tab shows the 5 upcoming runs of the schedule, and their run history.
