How to Register Resources in Execution Manager

  • Worksoft Execution Manager provides a complete system to manage automated lights-out testing of Certify processes.
  • We will be able to schedule and manage remote execution for both Worksoft Certify processes and Certify Performance Test projects.
  • The Execution Manager allows to manage diverse testing resources centrally. Before we are able to create a request to execute a process remotely, we must register dedicated machines as resources in the Execution Manager.
  • Only one request can be performed on a resource at a given time. The more dedicated machines added, the more capabilities you will have to perform automated lights-out testing.

The Resources tab is where you will register dedicated machines that will be used to execute Worksoft Certify processes.

SOAIS Blog – Nuts and bolts of Certify Database Maintenance​

One of the key thing, which is often missed by the organizations, who have invested in using Worksoft Certify for automating their Business Process Validation initiatives, is implementing a Database Maintenance Plan. While the business and the test automation consultants get excited about the shiny new thing that they have got and start building the regression suite; planning and executing a database maintenance plan for most of the customers gets pushed down the priority list. However, since all the test assets in Certify are stored in a Database, a robust database maintenance plan is very important to maintain smooth operation of Certify with acceptable performance criteria. The customers usually start facing issues once they have built significant number of Certify processes which they have started executing on regular basis. Such executions add a lot of data to the tables storing results data and increase the overall size of the Certify database.
