After creating an automated test suite, 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 suite you want to run.

About this task

This procedure outlines how to start a test suite manually. You can also schedule test suites to run at a later time. For more information, see Working with scheduled test suites.


  1. Navigate to Automated Test Framework > Test Suites.
  2. If your test includes any steps that work with a form – or any other element on the client side – review Browser recommendations for scheduled suites.
  3. If necessary to view the Test Suites list, click Test Suites.
  4. Click the row containing the test suite you want to run.
    The system displays the Test Suite form.
  5. Click Run Test Suite.
    If the test or tests include a form step (any step involving a UI), the system displays a dialog box asking you to choose among any currently-running test clients or start a new test runner. To continue, select the option you want and click OK.

What to do next

Monitor the progress of the tests. When complete, click Go to results on the progress dialog window to display the Test Results list, where you can view and analyze the results.
