As an administrator in the ATS, you have access to additional functionality:

  • Manage Projects system wide
  • Create new user/administrator accounts
  • Configure Selenium hubs for all projects
  • Change Recorder configuration

Manage Projects

When you log in as an administrator the Projects page is shown:

Projects page when logged in as administrator

On this page you can see all the projects that exist on this ATS instance. Here you can create new Projects and Action Libraries. Also as an admin user you have the rights to delete projects and libraries from the system. When creating a new library you can choose to Include by default in new projects , so this library is included by default in any project that is created on the system. For more information on project/library creation see the ReferenceGuide_Projects page of the reference guide.

Create or Edit a Project/Action Library

If you create a new Project/Action Library or you want to edit an existing one, the following page will open:

New/Edit Project or Action Library

You can edit the name, the Mendix Project ID and the Mendix API key. Furthermore you can add users to the project by selecting the appropriate user roles.

You can also add existing Action Libraries.

Add Selenium Configurations

As an admin user you can configure Selenium hubs as you normally would. For more information, see SeleniumHub.

Selenium Overview

Additionally, as an administrator, you can assign a Selenium hub to a specific project, or you can make the hub available for all projects on the ATS instance. You can do this by creating a new Selenium hub or editing an existing one.

On the Accounts page you can create new users and administrators for the system. Administrators only have access to the administration part of ATS. They can see test cases and test results, but they can’t create new test cases or run them.

Accounts page

When editing accounts you can set accounts to inactive or block them, which will both deactivate the account.
