Working with External Integrations on QARA Enterprise

Automation testing tools today are designed for seamless integration with several external tools. Having worked with the QARA Enterprise test automation tool, I have witnessed how the integration with other popular tools makes it possible for testers to perform multiple testing functionalities on the same platform, without the need to switch between platforms. QARA Enterprise is a test automation tool developed by The Digital Group, which also offers external integrations with popular platforms like Jira, Sauce Labs, Microsoft Test Management (MTM), Jenkins and a few more. Here we shall learn about working with the integrations, one at a time.

1] Jira Integration

  • User can create new test case from QARA which will automatically reflect in MTM.
  • User can Automate MTM Test Cases from QARA.
  • User can execute Manual / Automated test cases from QARA and the execution status will automatically sync with MTM.

 

MTM Configuration

Click on the Options tab to select MTM, as shown below.

We have integrated with Selenium-Grid, and the following are the two reasons why you might want to use Selenium-Grid

  • To run your test cases against multiple browsers, multiple versions of browser and browsers running on different operating systems.
  • To reduce the time it takes for the test suite to complete the execution.

Selenium JAR file & Browser drivers will be available on QARA Enterprise.

Command to start Hub

java -jar selenium-server-standalone-3.4.0.jar -role hub

Command to start Node

java -Dwebdriver.chrome.driver="<path>chromedriver.exe" -Dwebdriver.gecko.driver="<path>geckodriver.exe" -Dwebdriver.ie.driver="<path>IEDriverServer.exe" -jar selenium-server-standalone-3.4.0.jar -role node -hub http://IP address:4444/grid/register

Given below are the steps to run test cases on Selenium Grid:

  • Select Run Mode as “Grid”

The different external integrations contribute towards enhancing the scope of test automation with QARA Enterprise, a test automation platform developed by The Digital Group. I have covered the functionalities and capabilities of QARA Enterprise in my previous blog posts, and here are the links to a few of them:

QARA Enterprise now has an add-on for JIRA that will help users bring test management capabilities to the JIRA interface. Learn more about the add-on that is available on the Atlassian Marketplace.
