Run your TestSuite

CloudQA has options to run your TestSuite. Go to TruRT, and create a new TestSuite. You can run your test suite

  1. Manually
  2. Scheduler
  3. Using WebAPI
  4. Parallel Execution

1. Manually

You can run your TestSuite on demand

  • Click on execute test suite button to run the suite
  • Check the results of manual execution in Test Recorder page results

2. Scheduler

Schedule Your Tests and Monitor Your Application. Easily schedule tests to run on a build or monitor your production app.

Set a notification when the run fails

  • Click on calendar icon to schedule your suite
  • Set it to active
  • Set the Frequency:

    • Every 15min/30min/1hr - Will run the tests on a set interval. Use this option to monitor the health of your application and alert when your service is down.

    • Daily/Weekly - Schedule the tests to run on certain days of the week and the time of day. Use this option to automatically trigger test runs such as nightly regression.

  • Select the time zone
  • Base URL - set the start URL of your web application (e.g. production or staging environment).
  • Set Browsers

3. Using Web API

CloudQA API lets you run a test suite and get the execution status via web API.

  • To run the test suite you would need an API key and test suite ID

  • API key can be generated from My Account page

On Boarding

  • Test suite ID can be found in the test suite details information from the TruRT Actions column

Executing Test Suite via API

  • To run the test suite you need to send a POST request to the web API with your unique API key as header which will authenticate the execution

  • POST request

    Syntax:<test suite Id>/runs
    Header: Authorization: ApiKey <insert_api_key_here>
  • An optional JSON format body can be added to the POST request to further customize the test suite execution like browser and variables. Below is a view of the request body

          "Browser": "Firefox",
          "Variables": {
                          "Variable1": "Value1",
                          "Variable2": "Value2"
  • The API will immediately return with a status code of 202, and the returned body will contain a Run Id, and the current status (started).

  • As soon as you send the post request to the web API it will respond with a JSON body containing Run ID and the status of execution as started.

  • This Run ID received in POST request can be used to check the status of the execution by sending a GET request to the web API. Use below URL syntax for sending the request.
