Functional Test Execution enables you to execute UFT One web tests and codeless tests in OpenText’s cloud environment. You select the testing tool and browser versions you’d like to test with, add your tests to a test suite, and Execution will run your tests in the cloud.
Provide ValueEdge with access to the Git repository where your UFT One scripts are stored. You then add the scripts to test suites that are executed in a UFT One machine hosted in OpenText’s cloud environment. You can also use these scripts as units in Model-Based Testing.
A scheduling mechanism enables you to automatically run test suites according to your preferred schedule (nightly, weekly, and so on).
The following is the general workflow:
Configure a cloud runner to connect your Git repository with ValueEdge. For details, see Enable cloud execution.
Create a test suite and add tests using the Tests tab, and then define cloud execution details. For details, see Prepare a test suite for execution.
Create schedules based on your operational needs, using the Schedules tab. For details, see Create schedules.
Track schedule runs and execution results using the Scheduled Runs tab. For details, see Monitor overall test execution.
Use the Defects tab to manage defects related to your tests. For details, see Defects and vulnerabilities.
Execution Overview tab
When you first open the Execution module, you see the Overview tab. The following widgets are shown by default:
|CI Cloud Status||Indicates if the OpenText cloud engine is available for test execution. If it is down, contact Support.|
|Cloud Runners||Displays cloud runner status. For details on creating cloud runners, see Enable cloud execution.|
|Current License Usage||Shows the number of Test Execution concurrent-run licenses in use, out of the total available licenses.|
Users with admin permissions can drill down to corresponding configuration areas. For example, if you have permissions to create a cloud runner you can drill from the widget to the related Settings area.
You can also add or customize widgets as needed. For details, see ALM Octane Dashboard.
Working with codeless tests
Functional Test Execution enables you to schedule and run codeless tests in the cloud. For details on creating codeless tests with the FT Design sub-module, see Functional Test Design Help Center.
To run a codeless test:
In the test suite details, when selecting a machine template, select a template that contains Codeless.
When assigning a test runner to a test in the test suite, select Codeless Runner.
Limitation: If you change a test's name, the test name may not include a period (.).
