Combining Automated and Manual Tests

Silk Central supports exeuction plans that include combinations of automated tests and manual tests. For such execution plans, Silk Central withholds execution of regular tests, both automated and manual, until setup tests are complete. Silk Central also ensures that all regular tests are complete before cleanup tests are run.

When manual tests are combined with automated tests, automated tests, on all execution servers, do not begin until the setup processes are complete. In the case of manual setup tests, regular automated tests begin only after manual setup routines are complete.
