Executing Tests Assigned to Execution Plans

This section explains how to run tests that are assigned to execution plans with Silk Central.

You can run individual execution plans, folders, and configuration suites. In all cases you can define whether all assigned tests, or only tests matching certain status criteria should be executed. After an execution plan including automated tests is started, it is put in the central execution queue and an appropriate execution server is chosen to accomplish automated execution of the tests, based on the matching keywords and the server availability. For mobile device testing, a device is selected and reserved for execution, if a mobile device selection is configured for this execution plan. If no execution server or no mobile device is available, the execution job stays in the queue until a suitable execution server and mobile device becomes available.
