This list shows all Automation Host machines that match the current filter criteria.

Each host is displayed in a separate row containing:

  • Host Name: The name of the host machine.

  • Status: The Online or Offline Status of each host machine.

  • Version: Host machines Version 2.0 and above will show the version number of the installed software.

  • Agents: The total number of automation agents configured on the host machine.

  • Polling Frequency: The configured polling frequency for that host machine. This is the frequency with which the host machine reaches out to qTest Launch or Manager to check for updates to its configuration, or to see if new jobs have been scheduled.

The pagination widget at the top of the page lets you navigate back and forth between pages. From here, you can also change the number of hosts displayed per page by selecting a different value from the #Rows drop-down.

Tip: Click on column header to sort the list, from ascending to descending and vice versa.

Automation Jobs

The Job Level view allows you to view and manage all of the automation jobs that you have created across your Automation Hosts. Any filters selected for Project, Host, or Tag will stick when toggling your view between Hosts and Jobs.

Each Job will be listed, in a single row, with the following information displayed:

  • Tests: Number of requirements, test cases or Test Runs that were selected to be executed

  • Status:

    • Planned: the job is scheduled to be executed in the future

    • Not Run: the job execution is due and will be executed next time the Automation Host polls to qTest Launch

    • Running: the job was picked up and is being executed by the Automation Host

    • Completed: the job execution has been completed

    • Canceled: the job was canceled by the user

  • Last Run Status: The last run status of the automation job.

  • Action: The actions will change based on job status.

    • Status of Not Run: Action = View, Cancel

    • Status of Planned: Action = View, Delete occurrence, Delete series

    • Status of Completed: Action=View

    • Status of Cancelled: Action=Delete

    • Status of Failed: Action=View

The pagination widget at the top of the Job information table lets you navigate back and forth between pages. From here, you can also change the number of scheduled jobs displayed per page by selecting a different value from the #Rows drop-down.

Note: The Schedule name will appear in red font in the event that a Test Run, associated with a schedule, was deleted in qTest Manager. Therefore, the scheduled job will not be executed by the Automation Host and as a result, will not be submitted to the deleted Test Run. The Schedule is displayed for user awareness only.
