Executing Tests

How to Run Tests

Right-click the name of the Scenario suite, the Scenario, the Action or the Task you wish to execute. Click Run.

You can stop a test mid-way or at any time. Simply right-click on a node and select Stop.


Generate an execution report

After a test is executed, you can generate an execution report:

  1. In the main menu, click FILE –> Save Execution Report…
  2. Give the report a location and a file name.
  3. Click OK.
    The report is saved and opens.


The generated report is an Excel document containing descriptions of the test and all results.

  • Summary Worksheet:  The summary worksheet contains counts for all execution statuses.
  • Execution Details:  This worksheet contains the configuration and the results of all tasks executed.
    Column Name Description

    Status Status of the node.  A node inherits status from its children.  If a task fails, the parent action, scenario and suite status will also fail.

    Messages specified in the Configuration tab (including variables), if any.

Run tests using the command line application

You can also run your Scenario Suite using the command line application (TestConsole.exe) located in the Test installation folder (%PROGRAMFILES(X86)%\Caristix\Caristix Test or %PROGRAMFILES%\Caristix\Caristix Test). Simply call the application by providing the Scenario Suite to run in argument:

TestConsole.exe “C:\MyScenarioSuite.cxs”

Use TestConsole.exe -h for more information.
