Use Bamboo to trigger my SmokeTests from another VM

Hi Guys,

 

I am new to TestComplete & Bamboo, I created set to TestCases to perform Smoke tests and we are using Bamboo for CI.

 

My question is that how do I use Bamboo to trigger the execution from another VM where Testcomplete & Smoke Testscases are located.

 

Any response are very much appreciated.

 

Thanks in Advance

We use pstools.exe to trigger bamboo run this .cmd file in VM(TestServer)  and it is now workfing fine.

The best way to do it is to add some code in your Bamboo script to run your tests with TestExecute.  You can read about that here:

Hi @Marsha_R

 

I Appreciate your reply,  I have done some of the command line parameters and works fine, however It's only done locally in VM where TestComplete & Automated Tests are located.     

 

The problem I am facing right now it that, how to trigger this command line from Bamboo server(separate VM). I think this is where I missed the gap.  Any Idea how it is being done in Bamboo server?

 

Thanks

Re: Use Bamboo to trigger my SmokeTests from another VM

I'm not familiar enough with Bamboo.... but my understanding of most CI tools that trigger test launches is that they send a command to an agent for that agent to execute.  So, in Bamboo, when you set up the command to trigger the test launch, incorporate the command line switches that @Marsha_R suggests

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

@tristaanogre is right.  Bamboo is just running whatever commands you give it.

 

Let me ask this - can you go to the server where Bamboo lives and manually connect to the server where TestComplete lives?  Perhaps there's a network connection or permissions issue.
