Running test case execution records with deployment plans

If you set up an integration between Engineering Test Management and a deployment plan provider, such as Rational® Test Virtualization Server, you can use deployment plans during your testing.

About this task

To use deployment plans during your testing, you run a test case execution record that is associated with a deployment plan. You can use a deployment plan during testing in two ways:
  • Associate a test case execution record with a deployment plan before run time, while you are viewing or editing the test case execution record.
  • Select or modify the deployment plan at run time.

You can use deployment plans that are already running outside of Engineering Test Management or deployment plans that are published, but not running. If you use a deployment plan that is not running, you can activate that deployment plan directly from Engineering Test Management.

Procedure

To use deployment plans during a test run:

  1. From the artifact list, select a test case execution record and click Run with Options.
  2. If the test case execution record is associated with a deployment plan, the deployment plan name is in the Deployment Plan field. If the test case execution record is not associated with a deployment plan, or if you want to change the plan, click the Change Deployment Plan icon (Edit) next to the Deployment plan field and select a deployment plan. In the "Use deployment plan" window, the deployment plan that you selected is displayed as a URL. To view information about the deployment plan, hover over the URL. To open the application in the context of the selected deployment plan, click the URL.
  3. Depending on the deployment plan that you selected, you can use a deployment that is already running, or activate a new deployment. If you activate a new deployment, you must supply the input parameters to activate the deployment for the selected deployment plan.
  4. Run the test case execution record by clicking OK. The deployment plans that are associated with the test case execution record are displayed in the Summary section of the test.
  5. Complete the test execution and view the test results. The Test Case Execution Record Result contains links to the deployment URLs.
