Declaration of the public URL
In order to enable the communication between Squash TM and Squash Orchestrator, the public URL of the Squash TM instance must be declared.
Annita defines the public URL as described in Squash TM documentation.
Creation of the project in Squash TM
Annita creates the project as described in the Squash TM documentation.
She sets the project as BDD with Cucumber and the automation workflow as managed by Squash TM:
Declaration of the Squash Orchestrator in Squash TM
Then, she associates it to the project:
Creation of the Git repository (for the automated tests)
In order to be able to finish the configuration of the project, Annita needs the Git repository information. So she asks Antonine to create the repository and, in it, the directory into which Squash TM will push the automated test cases.
Antonine creates a local Git repository:
mkdir prestashop cd prestashoptest mkdir src mkdir src/test mkdir src/test/resources mkdir src/test/resources/prestashoptest touch src/test/resources/prestashoptest/.gitkeep git init git add . git commit -m "project setup"
Then, she creates an empty repository in the cloud (it could be in GitLab, GitHub, Bitbucket…, in this case it is
https://gitlab.com/antonine/prestashoptest), and pushes her local repo on it:
git remote add origin https://gitlab.com/antonine/prestashoptest git push --set-upstream origin master
At last, she indicates to Annita the URL of the remote repository is
https://gitlab.com/antonine/prestashoptest and that
the generated script files (i.e. the
feature files) should be placed in the
Declaration of the Git repository in Squash TM
Annita declares the Git remote and local repositories as described in the Squash TM documentation:
Overview of the involved Git repositories
Squash TM uses a local repository (on the host server) to generate automated scripts before pushing them into the remote repository of the project.
🛑 Nobody must interact with this local repository, it is intended to be used only by Squash TM.
Antonine will later also interact with the remote repository, on her local working environment:
Then, Annita associates the repository to the project:
