New Shell Agent

1. We are introducing a new plugin, the Shell Agent plugin, which is capable of kicking off shell scripts (Linux and MacOS) or batch scripts (Windows)

2. The Shell Agent is the newest option in the Test Automation Scheduler that offers a high level of flexibility including:

  • Ability to schedule automated test execution (for tests in any framework and language, including custom frameworks)
  • Automation scripts can be stored in a file that is located in the local machine or in a shared network directory
  • Ability to kick off commands, shell / batch scripts, or executable files that are executable from your console or terminal.
  • Ability to define which test runs get executed and how the results will be passed into Test Execution (by using APIs)

Using information passed from qTest Manager in your scripts

1. When Test Runs are scheduled from qTest Manager UI, extra data of these Test Runs and their Test Suite are passed along with the schedule to the agent

2. You can pass those data using command arguments to your kick-off scripts

Known Bugs and Limitations

  • Java 9 is not supported
