Configurations screen

Applies to QAComplete 14.1 SaaS, last modified on February 28, 2022

You may need to repeat the exact same test or test set under various configurations. For example, if building a web application, you will want to repeat your tests using different browsers. Desktop applications may need to be tested under several different operating systems, or it may be a combination of both.

With configurations, you can define a variety of environments you will use to repeat your testing.

For automated tests and test sets, you can associate a configuration with a test host for testing purposes. See Test Hosts.

To access the Configurations screen, select Test Management > Configurations on the main QAComplete toolbar.

Here, you can perform various tasks with configurations:

Organize your configurations

You can organize your configurations in any way you need. For example, you can organize them by the operating system, by the users who own them, and so on. To learn how to do that, see Navigation, Folders, and Grouping.

To filter the list of available configurations, use the Project, Release, Folders, and Group By drop-down lists on the toolbar. You can also select a predefined filter from the Filter drop-down list or create a new filter by clicking New Filter.

To search by a keyword, specify the needed keyword in the search box and press Enter. After that, only the items that match your search query will be shown in the item list.

Click Recent Items to display a drop-down list containing the items that have been changed lately. Click an item in the list to edit its properties.
