Managing Device Providers

Device providers are computers that host mobile emulators and simulators, and/or have physical mobile devices connected to them, which can be accessed to execute tests.

Physical mobile devices, emulators and simulators that are connected to or installed on a so called device provider, can be made available to your test engineers and test plans. Manual and automated tests can then be executed directly on those mobile devices.

Today's software usually needs to run on multiple platforms and on all kinds of mobile devices, so this feature is especially useful to perform configuration testing across all platforms and devices that your software is supporting.
