3.11.3. Test Automation

SpiraTeam® can be used to manage the development, scheduling and execution of automated unit, functional and load tests written using a variety of test automation engines (e.g. HP QuickTest Pro, SmarteScript, TestComplete, etc.). This section allows you to configure the different engines that are available in your environment so that the testers know which tools they can use to schedule tests with.

The information on using the various test automation engines for SpiraTeam® and the steps for configuring the engine-specific settings are described in the SpiraTest/Team RemoteLaunch Automated Testing Integration Guide.

To configure a test automation engine, you need to click on the Administration > Integration > Test Automation link in the Administration navigation to bring up the list of configured test automation engines:

To add a new test automation engine, click the “Add” button to enter the Automation Engine details page. The fields required are as follows:

  • Name: The name of the test automation engine that you’re adding. This can be set to any name of your choice that would make sense to your users.
  • Description: The description is used for any comments or additional information that you need to use to describe the automation engine.
  • Active: If checked, the automation engine is active and able to be used in any project.
  • Token: This needs to match the name of the Automation Engine DLL file that you’re using (see the SpiraTest/Team Automated Testing Integration Guide for more details on your specific tool) for the specific automation engine.

When finished, click the “Insert” button and you will be taken back to the test automation engine list page, with new automation engine listed.

To edit the settings for an existing test automation engine, just click on the “Edit” link next to the name of the engine and you will be able to edit the same settings that were shown above when you first created it.

Once you have made the appropriate changes, click the [Save] button to commit them.

You are now ready to use SpiraTest® / SpiraTeam® in conjunction with the test automation engine you added. For details on how to use the test automation features of SpiraTeam, please refer to the SpiraTeam® User Manual.
