The toolbox allows you to start agents or probes on dedicated workstations.
- Agents are required to run tests with Selenium on dedicated workstations or to deport the execution of a test.
- Probes can be used to retrieve logs automatically during the execution of a test.
This window allows you to choose the agent or probe to start. The type of agent or probe to start can be chosen in the drop-down list. Finally, an agent or probe needs to be registered with the test server in order to use it.
An agent will allow you to perform a distributed run of your tests. For example, an agent deployed on several machines will allow to run the same test on different environment to test or pilot.
The complete list of available agents and probes are described in the Server Add-ons> Agents or Probes chapter.
The agent name or probe must be unique for successful registration.
For a better visibility of the agents or probes available, it is advisable to respect the following formalism for the names:
[Agent | probe] [Environment] [prénom_testeur] [name] [instance-number]…
Example of a deployed and running agent:
