Q&A from TestProject and qTest Integration Webinar

main post image

We were thrilled to host several hundred eager webinar participants for our recent session on the TestProject and qTest Integration. We collected dozens of questions over the 1-hour session. We have answered the most common questions for you below:

Housekeeping

Q: Where can I download/view the recording?
A: here! Or directly from our YouTube channel:

Q: Where can I download/view the presentation?
A: here!

Test Management

Q: Is it possible to link a TestProject test to an existing Manual test in qTest?
A: Currently, test case data only flows in one direction: From TestProject to qTest. We would recommend deleting/archiving the manual test once created and allowing the TestProject test to replace it (once synchronized into qTest Test Design).

Q: Is traceability maintained between TestProject tests and qTest requirements/defects?
A: Yes, we always reuse the same qTest test case for update results, logging defects, etc. So, as long as you define the requirements traceability properly for the qTest test case when it is first integrated, it will be maintained from that point forward.

Test Scheduling

Q: Is it possible to execute tests from qTest much like you would with selecting Schedule on the test case which takes you into Launch?
A: Yes, you can trigger the TestProject Job using the TestProject API from a universal agent in qTest Launch. TestProject also provides its own built-in scheduling as well as CI/CD integration.

Test Results

Q: Is there direct linking from the Test execution in qTest to the Test Case in TestProject so the user does not have to manually navigate to and locate the specific test?
A: Yes, a link is provided directly in the test result to navigate to the associated test report (and test case) in TestProject:

Q: Do the screenshots from TestProject get attached to the Test Run in qTest?
A: Currently, the screenshots do not get attached, but they can be viewed in the same linked report in TestProject shown above.

Administration

Q: As a qTest Admin, how do you administer users in TestProject?
A: qTest users will be able to log in to TestProject automatically, in TestProject they will be created as a user and will have their own TestProject user profile which can be managed.

Integration

Q: Can TestProject be integrated with Slack?
A: Yes, we have an out-of-the-box integration with Slack.

Q: Can TestProject be integrated with iOS Simulators?
A: Yes, we offer integration to Sauce Labs and BrowserStack, both of which offer integration to iOS simulators with a subscription. You can sign up for a free trial on their website to test this functionality.

General Questions

Q: Can I import existing Selenium/Appium tests to TestProject?
A: Yes, using the TestProject SDK which is available for Java and C#, the Python and JavaScript bindings will be available later this year as well.

Q: If I have already created TestProject tests before I have integrated to qTest, can I import them later and sync them?
A: Yes, your tests and results can be synced later, once the integration is enabled.

Q: Is there any docker image available to add agents to TestProject?
A: Yes, we have just recently released this feature. We will share more information about this shortly!

Q: Is it possible the have one agent run parallel tests to speed up runtime on more powerful machines/servers?
A: Yes, using the dockerized agent above, one machine could have multiple agents installed. For Mac and Windows, you are limited to a single agent install per machine/server, but you can have unlimited agents connected to your TestProject account. 

Q: How can TestProject be offered for free?
A: TestProject is part of Tricentis, a well-funded company that is the leader in software testing. This provides the resources to create tools to offer at no cost to our users. We hope that offering TestProject for free will give back to the community, helping to spread the word about Tricentis’s products and raising awareness about our other paid products.

Q: Are there any limits on the Free TestProject license?
A: You can invite as many users as you’d like, and create as many projects as you’d like with the free license. Storage is limited to 2GB by default, but if you need more, please contact us at [email protected] and we will get you more storage added at no cost 😉

 

Have any more questions you were hoping to ask?  Please feel free to email us at [email protected], and we will answer them ASAP!

Happy Testing! 😎
