The Test Agent is a tool that allows you to communicate QAComplete and your automated testing tools.

You have to install and configure the Test Agent on each computer that you plan to use for automated tests, so the test result will be posted to the Test Library. The Test Agent is also necessary for scheduled automation runs.

Tip: When you install the test agent on a host machine, the host item will be automatically created in QAComplete.

Requirements

To install the Test Agent, your test machine must meet the following requirements:

  • An active Internet connection.

  • To run TestComplete automated tests:

    TestComplete or TestExecute version 9.0 or later installed.

    Note: If there are several TestComplete or TestExecute versions installed on the host, the Test Agent will use the latest version.
  • To run automated API tests:

    ReadyAPI version 1.2.0 or later installed.

    - OR -

    SoapUI OS version 5.1.2 or later installed.

  • To run tests with a Java unit testing framework:

    • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5 - 8 installed
    • Appropriate Java unit testing framework, JUnit or TestNG, installed and configured
    • For Selenium automated web tests:
      Selenium WebDriver modules installed and configured in your JUnit or TestNG framework
    • To use Maven for test runs:
      Maven 3.2.3 or later modules installed and configured
      The PATH environment variable on the test machine must specify the path to the Maven modules
