Add automated tests

In ALM Octane, you can create pipelines that represent the flow of your CI server jobs. When you run a pipeline, the results of any automated tests that it runs are sent to ALM Octane. ALM Octane creates automated test entities associated with these results. If a relevant automated test already exists, the results are associated with that test.

If you did not set up integration with a CI server, and you are not working with pipelines, you can use the Test Result Collection Tools to help you send your automated test run results to ALM Octane. For details, see Send automated test run results to ALM Octane.

ALM Octane creates the relevant automated tests.

  1. Prerequisites:

  2. Run a pipeline that contains a job that runs tests.

    When ALM Octane receives the test run results, it creates automated test entities associated with these results.

  3. View the tests alongside the manual tests created or stored in ALM Octane, for example in the Quality module.

    • Assign the tests to specific application modules or backlog items to provide a context for test result analysis.

    • Assign owners to tests, to help accelerate problem resolution.

    For details, see Create and manage test assignment rules.

    The run results are stored and incorporated in the various dashboards, widgets, and grids that you use to track product and build quality.

    Note: For each test, ALM Octane stores the results of one run per test environment. If you run the test again with the same environment configuration, the new results overwrite the old.

    You configure a test's environment by configuring the pipeline step that runs it. For details, see Label steps according to job type.
