Duel Automation Hosts

Friday, November 18, 2016

Hi SpiraTeam support,

Could you please explain the purpose and/or logic of having one automation host attached to a test set, and one attached to a test case? As it currently stands, automation hosts can be added via the administration > Integration > Test Automation section and can also be added via Testing tab > Automation hosts. That functionality has caused confusion over the past week and we would like a clear justification regarding the intents and purposes of having duel automation hosts implemented in SpiraTeam.

Hi Michael

You attach the automation host to the test set, this is the computer that will be running the set of tests.

You attach the automation engine to the test case, this is the plugin that will be running the tests (e.g. Rapise, Ranorex, UFT, etc.)

I hope that clarifies things.
