Your advantages at a glance

test.guide scales test execution automatically

test.guide makes Continuous Testing easy. As soon as test jobs are in the pipeline, they are executed. The distribution to physical or virtual test resources runs fully automated. Essentially, it's about distributing a test job to the right test bench. Sounds simple at first. However, if thousands of test jobs need to be distributed simultaneously, automatically and continuously to scalable test resources, then full power is required.

test.guide automates the execution of your tests in the pipeline so that they are distributed to suitably configured physical or virtual test benches and executed in the order of their prioritization. Added to this, test.guide ensures the optimal use of the available test resources so that idling does not occur. With so-called playbooks, which describe the entire setup required for test execution, the process of automated distribution of test jobs is even more convenient. That is, already during the creation of the test-suite. Interested? Feel free to contact us.

test.guide optimizes resource utilization

Knowing when and which test resources are available is test.guide's strength. With integrated monitoring, the vital data, test executions and also configurations of each connected test bench can be accessed in real time. Especially with many test executions, it is extremely important to keep an eye on the test resources. The time on the test bench is too valuable to waste it without being used. Availability, utilization, disk storage capacity, configurations, ongoing test executions – all need to be maximized.

That's why we have deliberately added a little extra. Or more precisely, a small add-on: the ResourceAdapter. It is an agent that allows such a comprehensive monitoring of test resources. Once installed, it continuously sends all information from the test bench PCs to the central test.guide server via the monitoring API. There, this data is collected and can be accessed in real time.

test.guide gives you an overview

Real-time results. Statistics, test schedules and test reports at a glance. Test report management is the core of test.guide. Here, the test executions are compared, viewed and analyzed from all possible perspectives. Compare test runs and regression tests, trace test steps, identify trends, assess defects or create overview diagrams. test.guide reduces the effort of managing, viewing and analyzing the results of countless test executions. The tool centralizes all test reports in a database and helps you with many different filter and analysis options to determine the relevant test reports for a release.

The test reports are automatically imported from ecu.test. However, it is also easy to import for user-specific test tools thanks to the standardized ASAM-ATX interface. The comprehensive review function provides a lot more extra. You can use it to record notes for failed test runs, perform re-evaluations or even create defect tickets.

test.guide gets releases underway

The test.guide release overview helps you stay organized from release to release. Regardless of whether it's individual iterations or major milestones. The release encompasses all test procedures just like a set of brackets. Connects the beginning and the end. Compares actual status with target status. Helps to make decisions. A release can be created during the planning phase or as a follow-up to test executions. Once a release is ready, success is measured in terms of tests passed and advanced coverage.

The release overview keeps you optimally informed about the status, both graphically and in tabular form. If the release was closed successfully, the results can be exported in different formats (ALM systems, e.g., Polarion or Octane, Excel, PDF). In addition, you can easy navigate from here to any release-relevant section of test.guide with a single click. This is especially practical when you have several releases to organize at the same time.

test.guide makes you happy

With test.guide you can plan test case coverage in detail, release by release. Associated requirements, conditions, variants and results remain transparent and traceable at all times. The crux of any release or sub-release is the question: Have all the necessary and planned test cases been executed? Coverages help answer this question. They instantly indicate the level of test case coverage for specific requirements, parameter ranges, or variants. A quick, trained look is often all that is needed to correctly evaluate the test results in the graphs and tables.

Coverages are defined using coverage filters. These filters define the boundary conditions for the test scope of a requirement, for example, the vehicle variant or engine class which is to be tested. For a quick start, prefabricated examples are already available that you can customize. Filters can be imported to test.guide from files and ALM systems (e.g., Polarion, HP-ALM, Octane), as well as automated via the REST API, e.g., for Continuous Integration solutions.
