TC Service REST API - Is there a way to get TC instance ID of remote machine

Hi All,

 

Is there a way to get the instance ID of TC/TE installed on Remote machine(VM) instead of uploading archive folder as project already exsists in the VM. Dont want to spend time on archiving and uploading the archive to VM(Skip zip and upload steps of Rest API).

 

Get the instance ID and trigger the execution of tests by specifying the project path.

Hello,

 

If you have a way to execute a command on a remote machine, you can use the SessionCreator utility to create a user session and execute a test within it instead of using the REST API.

 

Also, you can try to reduce the size of your project. The easiest way is to clear the old logs. For this, you can use the Number of recent logs to keep option.

Re: TC Service REST API - Is there a way to get TC instance ID of remote machine

Thanks for the reply @Dmitry_Nikolaev 

why i posted this question is, as our code base exists in VM and we just need to open testcomplete and trigger test execution using REST API rather then again uploading project through Zip file.

or

Can we use other than http to upload zip file as time taken is too long to upload more than 1GB of Project suite.

 

script:

function UploadZIPFile()
{
Log.Message("Upload Zip file to the remote VM");
var address = "URL";
 var username = "UName";
var password = "pwd";

var aqHttpRequest = aqHttp.CreatePostRequest(address, username, password);
aqHttpRequest.SetHeader("Content-Type","application/zip");

var requestBody = ReadByteFromFile();
var aqHttpResponse = aqHttpRequest.Send(requestBody);

if(aqHttpResponse.StatusCode == 200)
{
Project.Variables.InstanceID = aqHttpResponse.Text;
Log.Message("File Upload to remote VM is successful and Instance ID is: " + aqHttpResponse.Text);
CreateTestCompleteInstance();
}
else
{
Log.Error("Error in uploading zip file to remote VM");
}
Log.Message("End of Test");
}

 

function ReadByteFromFile()
{
Log.Message("Read Byte from the zip file");
var Path = "C:\\Validation1.zip";

// Opens the specified file for reading
var myFile = aqFile.OpenBinaryFile(Path, aqFile.faRead);
Log.Message("File by bytes:");

// Reads bytes from the file and posts them to the test log
while(! myFile.IsEndOfFile())
{
s = myFile.ReadByte();
Log.Message(s);
}

// Writes the received array to the file
myFile = aqFile.OpenBinaryFile(Path, aqFile.faWrite, true);
result = myFile.WriteBytes(s);

Log.Message("File reading and converted to binary");
// Closes the file
myFile.Close();
Log.Message("End of Test");
return result;
}

 

This way time taken for execution is more. Is there any other way zip file can be uploaded?

 

Thanks,

Manu G

@Dmitry_Nikolaev 

Yeah was looking around different options of reducing the size of the project for the execution purpose. Will check out SessionCreator also.

Thanks.
