Not able to pause or stop TC from QAComplete

Hi Support,

 

I linked my automated test to QAComplete, and I am able to launch the test from QAComplete, but I am not able to pause or stop the running test from QAComplete, I clicked on "PAUSE RUN" and it looks like the test has been paused because the button switched to "RESUME RUN", but the test was still running on the test machine. Is there anyway I can pause or stop run from QAComplete?

 

Thanks!

Hi Community,

Let me post a reply from the Support Team here for the future:


@Support wrote:

The behavior you are facing is expected. The Pause Run and Resume Run actions consider Test Run entity in QAC and do not influence auto test flow on the test host. QAComplete does not allow managing TestComplete test execution flow. With QAC, you can start the TC auto-test execution and get results after the test execution is finished, but you cannot interact with TC or TE on the test host to pause and resume the test execution. Pausing/resuming the test execution can be performed manually on the target host (via TC/TE UI), these actions cannot be automated.

See if this helps:

https://support.smartbear.com/qacomplete/docs/user/test-management/run/manual.html

End or pause the test run

To pause the run, click Pause Run. The last run status of this test will be In Progress. To pause the run, save the test run state and leave the Test Runner, click Save & Close:

Thanks @Marsha_R but it was talking about manual test, I see there is a topic Run automated tests, but it only talks how to run an automated test, doesn't mentioned how to pause an automated test.

Hi,

 

QAComplete is Test Management but not Test Execution tool, thus it cannot control test code that is executed by some external system.

Pause/Stop/Resume test in terms of test management means 'logical' operation to a) let management know the status of the given test/test run execution state; and b) measure time metrics (like the time spent to execute the test) in a more correct way.
