Introduction to ATS

Last update: Edit

1 ATS Start Page

When you log in to Application Test Suite (ATS), you see the My apps page. This page displays all the Mendix apps you are a member of and that have an ATS license. Every member of the team in your app has access to ATS.

The My apps page

Each app has a doughnut chart that displays how many test cases inside that app are passed. This allows for a quick overview of the progress of your apps.

2 ATS Dashboard

When you open an app that does not contain any test cases, the dashboard looks like this:

ATS empty app dashboard

If you already have some active test cases in your ATS app, the dashboard will give you a summarized overview of the current state of your app at a glance.

The dashboard can be divided into four parts:

  • Current state chart
  • 7-Day history
  • Test case treeview
  • PDF export

The current state chart will show you the total number of test cases in your app. Furthermore, it will present you the state of your test cases as numeral.

The 7-Day history chart reflects the state of your test cases over the past seven days.

The Recent Tests section shows you detailed information for all of your test cases and test suites. You can see the passed time since the latest execution and its result. For test suites, the success rate is calculated using the results of all containing test cases.

The dataset (which is the dataset used by a data-driven test case) is displayed in the Test Data column.

You can open the latest execution log of a failed test case by pressing Show Log.

If your test suites contain one or more test suites/cases, you can open the test suite by clicking the arrow in front of the test suite name. The test suite will expand and you will see all containing test suites/cases.

Recent Tests

You can export the current results of your test cases by clicking Download Report. The Generate Report dialog box appears, where you can either generate a report of the entire app or select specific folders to include in the report.

4 Different User Roles

ATS has the following different user role settings.

4.1 Scrum Master

The Scrum Master of your app can access the App Settings from the profile menu. Here you can add your app environment URL for testing and add a Selenium Hub for executing your tests. This is the only difference with other roles.

4.2 Others

All other roles in your app have access to ATS. The only difference is that the Scrum Master can access the App Settings of your app.
