Silk Central Integration

Silk Performer is fully integrated with Silk Central's test-planning and test-execution functionality. Silk Performer projects can be integrated into Silk Central test plans and can be directly executed through Silk Central. This feature allows for powerful test-result analysis and reporting, and it provides for tests that are run automatically by Silk Central based on pre-configured schedules. This type of testing is called unattended testing.

Silk Central projects can be downloaded to Silk Performer, where scripts and settings can be edited. Edited projects can subsequently be uploaded to Silk Central to make them available for future test executions.

Note: The term Project is used differently in Silk Performer than it is in Silk Central. When uploaded to Silk Central, a Silk Performer project becomes the core element of a Silk Central test definition. Silk Central projects are higher-level entities that can include multiple test definitions, executions definitions, and requirements.

Silk Performance Explorer can be used for in-depth analysis of test runs. Performance Explorer can be launched directly from Silk Central's Executions unit by way of execution runs on the Runs page, either from Silk Performer or from Performance Explorer itself. For details regarding Performance Explorer's integration with Silk Central, refer to the Performance Explorer Help .

The results of Silk Performer test runs can be uploaded to Silk Central and associated with test definitions. To complete this task, Silk Performer searches its results directories and uploads the appropriate files to Silk Central.
