Run automated test

After creating an automated test, run it on a sub-production instance.

Before you begin

Role required: [atf_test_admin] or [atf_test_designer].

You must have created the test you want to run.

The test execution property must be enabled.
Note: The test execution property is disabled by default to prevent running tests on a production system. Run tests only on development, test, and other sub-production instances.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Automated Test Framework > Tests.
  2. If your test includes any steps that work with a form – or any other element on the client side – follow these steps to open a browser window for running the client portion of the test. (If a Client Test Runner is already open from running a previous test, you do not need to open another one.)
    See Automated Test Framework Client Test Runner module for important recommendations and requirements regarding running the client test runner.
    1. In the Navigator, right-click Client Test Runner then click the option to open in a separate tab or window, as you prefer.
    2. Return to the browser window that contains the Navigator.
  3. If necessary to view the Tests list, Click Tests.
  4. Click the row containing the test you want to run.
    The system displays the Test form.
  5. Note: If the test execution property is not enabled, the Test form will not display a Run Test button. In this case, see the annotation at the top of the form, and click the link to enable running tests.
    Click Run Test.
    The system displays the Run Test progress dialog.

What to do next

Monitor the progress of the test in the Run Test progress dialog. When complete, click Go to Results on the Run Test progress dialog to display the Test Results list, where you can view and analyze the results.
Note: If your test creates data, the system rolls back that data after all steps in the test complete.
