Note: To learn about an API that allows controlling test runs, opening project suites, launching tests, and getting test results, see Test Runner REST API.


The REST API plugin must be installed and enabled in TestExecute. To install the plugin, select REST API on the Select Features page of TestExecute installation wizard.
