GitHub Integration with TestProject for Seamless Version Control and CI

main post image

Last week TestProject 3.0 has been officially released (you can learn more about it on our announcement blog and release notes), and in addition to powerful parallel execution capabilities, we also introduced a brand new built-in GitHub integration, enabling you to now benefit from version control and access previous versions of your tests 💪 

GitHub is a version control platform that allows you to track your code, manage your work in different branches and environments and store different versions of your code. Using the TestProject integration with GitHub, your synchronized projects are stored as repositories with all of their tests (with simple YAML format) in them. Each change that you make in your test, will automatically be stored and documented so you can seamlessly keep track of your progress.

Using TestProject’s built-in integration with GitHub enables you to:

  • Split your test automation into different environments
  • Synchronize entire projects with GitHub: the tests will be saved in YAML format and contain all the information to run autonomously
  • Seamlessly keep and access test history
  • Manage different versions and save all of your team’s progress
  • Run any previous test versions using TestProject CLI/Offline
  • Import various test versions back into TestProject
  • See what has changed in your tests directly on GitHub
  • Integrate your CI flow directly into GitHub repos (below is an example diagram for a CI flow with TestProject-GitHub Integration)
