Automated test not starting when executing RSS Feed

Monday, April 4, 2011
Hi

I have set up Spiratest/Selenium/RemoteLaunch on server/computer and when I try to execute a test case in spiratest nothing happens eventhough it is setup to use automated host and test script is saved onto the test script.

Should it not trigger remotelaunch and then remotelaunch trigger selenium to run the test script that is saved in the test case?

 Hello -

You say you are 'executing' it from SpiraTest - how are you doing this? RemoteLaunch uses the scheduled date and time to launch tests from. If you need to execute one right away, you will have to download the generated *.tst file and run that using RemoteLaunch.

Also you need to Execute a test set for automated testing, not just a test case. Clicking on the Execute button for a test set will prompt the download of a .TST file that triggers RemoteLaunch on the local workstation.

How do you download the generated *.tst file? Before, when I pushed execute in Spiratest I was asked to save a tst file, but now after installing RemoteLaunch I am not asked for anything. Nothing happens.

What browser are you using? Also if you set the Planned Date/Time in SpiraTest

 Ok, now when I execute the test set I am asked to save the tst file, but when I try to run it i get the message

"The server could not be contacted to retrieve test information. Please go into the settings and verify the server and user information, then runt test file again"

I have checked the connection details and tested the connection and have gotten confirmation that its successfully connected to spiratest, but still I'm getting this error message

I'm using firefox with selenium IDE. RemoteLaunch polling doesn't work either. I guess since it says its not connected in the status tab, but then again when i test the connection in the client setup tab it says its connected. When I try force execute I get the status Application is Paused. Any thoughts, ideas what might be wrong and what I can try to do?

You need to set the Automation Host on the Test Set.

Make sure the Token field of the Automation Host matches the token configured in RemoteLaunch. Then both ways of starting test (clicking Execute or using the Planned Date/Time) will work.

I have the same problem as Reinart except that I still can't run even when the tokens match.   :(

Hi Rosemary

Could you start a new thread on this because your situation might be different. Could you provide more information, such as what error messages appear in the Event Log on the computer that has RemoteLaunch installed.

Thanks
