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 Robot Framework and the automation workflow as managed by Squash TM:
Declaration of the Squash Orchestrator in Squash TM
A Squash Orchestrator has been deployed as described in that page.
Annita declares it in Squash TM as described in the Squash TM documentation so it is available to execute tests from 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.
Overview of the involved Git repositories
The remote repository is stored in the cloud. It is the reference.
Squash TM uses a local repository (on the host server) to generate automated scripts before pushing them into the remote repository.
🛑 Nobody must interact with this local repository, it is intended to be used only by Squash TM.
Antonine uses a local repository on her PC. She retrieves the scripts generated by Squash TM by performing a
git pull and pushes her automation code with a
Antonine creates, on her PC, a local Git repository with the adequate directory structure:
mkdir repo_prestashop cd repo_prestashop mkdir -p tests/bdd_squash touch tests/bdd_squash/.gitkeep git init git add . git commit -m "project setup"
Then, she creates an empty remote 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 repository into 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
robot files) should be placed in the
