Opkey's Suite Scheduler efficiently manages Suite execution, distributing tests across multiple machines for faster execution. It's designed for scheduling Suite file runs. 


Creating & scheduling Jobs

With this feature, you can schedule your created Suites for its execution on a specific Date and Time.

Let us proceed to see how we can use the Scheduler.

Navigate to the Tools menu & click on Scheduler.

The Opkey Scheduler window will open as depicted below:


The default highlighted column represents the current date, for example October 27, 2023 in the image above. You can see dates and hourly intervals in a spreadsheet format. Each cell corresponds to a specific date and time, allowing you to schedule Suite execution by clicking the relevant cell. 

Click on the calendar cell of your choice. This action opens a pop-up window for scheduling the Suite. 

Choose the desired Suite from the list, complete the necessary fields such as Session, Build, Execution Date, Time, Time Zone, Execution Agent, Generic Plugin, etc., and then click the "Schedule" button to save the schedule. 

Ensure Opkey Hub and Execution Agent are online with the necessary settings at the scheduled Suite execution time. 

After successfully scheduling Suite execution using the Scheduler, you can find it in the calendar with a confirmation message stating, "Job scheduled successfully on the specified date and time."


Navigate to the Tools Menu in the left panel, Scheduled Sessions options to view the scheduled sessions.

On the pop-up window, you can view the scheduled session details.

Once the scheduled job starts its execution, you can find it in the Execution/Finished Sessions tab. 

Points to remember:

  • Without the required plugin on the configured Agent, the scheduled session is canceled. Opkey Hub will display a notification, and the session will be removed from the list.  

  • If no Opkey agent is selected when scheduling a Suite execution, the session will use any available agent with the proper configuration to execute as scheduled. 

  • You can schedule multiple concurrent sessions on an Opkey Agent with the required configuration. 

With this, you come to the end of the article and are now aware of scheduling your suite at a particular future date.
