Schedule a test suite


A test suite serves as a repository for various test cases designed to evaluate specific functionalities or behaviors of software.


For example, imagine a test suite created to assess the product purchase process on an e-commerce web application. It can include the following test cases:


  1. Login (Test Case 1): Validate the login functionality to ensure users can access their accounts securely.

  2. Adding Products (Test Case 2): Confirm that products can be successfully added to the shopping cart and appear correctly.

  3. Checkout (Test Case 3): Verify the checkout process, including payment, order summary, and shipping details, to ensure a seamless transaction.

  4. Logout (Test Case 4): Ensure that users can successfully log out of their accounts, guaranteeing proper account security and session termination.


Opkey users can now schedule their Test Suites execution for a particular date & time.


Let's understand how to schedule a test suite to run at a particular date and time.
