    Scheduling the testplan start

    Is there a way to specify the time, lets say every 1 am, that I want the my testplan(or testcase) starts to be executed?

    Tks,

    Re: Scheduling the testplan start

    You can use the at scheduler that comes with Windows. (do a windows help search for "at" w/o the quotes for details). Other options include using a freeware/shareware/3rd party scheduler to kick off the testplan.

    To kick off a testplan you need to use the -r switch (i.e. C:\PROGRA~1\Segue\Silk\partner.exe -r c:\geminitests\scripts\reverse_gemini_functional.p ln)

    Dana,

    Can you recommend any third party schedulers?

    Howabout the NT Scheduler (You can get it from Microsoft if not installed) or a shareware called "Automate"

    Re: Scheduling the testplan start

    I am looking for something more robust. I am especially interested in scheduling many TestPlans to run based on a preset condition. SilkRealizer works for scheduling the TestPlans to run, and NT Task scheduler works for setting up the condition, but I need a scheduler that will combine these options.

    Can you recommend something?

    Re: Scheduling the testplan start

    I'm not actually sure what Amber is looking for specifically, but I've had great success by running silktest through a .bat file and using windows scheduler to launch it. Lookup "command line" in help for all the commands allowed. You can pass in option sets, export results and pass in args. Works very well unless your company refuses to lift the 15 minute idle autolock for you [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Let me know if you're interested and I'll give more detail.

    You could always buy Silkcentral Test Manager, with it you can schedule any testplan at any time any number of times repeating

    http://www.arcanadev.com/scheduler/ is also a good alternative for those that don't want to use the commandline interface of AT
