Generating Test Containers

How to generate a Test Container

If you have already developed your test case you have to make it available to the portal. The portal expects a .testcontainer file created out of your test case. The container consists of:
  • Images associated with your test case project
  • Test Case DLLs (the code you have written in Visual Studio)
To generate such a container simply :
  • Open the Visual Studio Solution Explorer
  • Right click on the Test Case Project
  • Select the context menu
  • Select the Generate test case test container option
A successful generation of the test container will be also indicated in the Visual Studio output section as follows:
Container was successfully created. C:\Projects\MyFirstTrioSolution\TC001_Rev1\bin\Debug\PortalUpload\TC001_Rev1_20190506_135523.testcontainer

Test Container file

The test container file name is always named according to the following schema
Therefore the following test case container TC001_Rev1_20190506_135523.testcontainer can be decoded as follows:
  • TC Identifier: 001
  • Revision: 1
  • Generation Date: 2019-05-06
  • Generation Time: 13:55:23
The next chapter (Publishing Test Cases) explains how to make the testcontainer available in the Portal.
