Setup Autify Connect

  • Dark
    Light

To use Autify Connect to run tests on your private environment, you will need to do the following:

1. Create a Scenario against your private application
2. Configure Autify Connect from the Workspace Settings page
3. Install Autify Connect Client to your system
4. Configure your Test Plan
5. Run the Test Plan

Let's look at each step in detail.

1. Create a Scenario against your private application

Create a scenario for the private application you wish to test. This can be done using Autify Recorder, just as you would to create a scenario for a public application.

2. Configure Autify Connect from the Workspace Settings page

Create an Access Point

  1. Navigate to your Workspace Settings page and find the Autify Connect section

  2. Click the "Add" button and input a name for the Access Point. An Access Point is an identifier that is associated with a unique key that will be used by your Autify Connect Client.

  3. Click the "Create" button. An Access Point Key will be displayed. Please keep it in a secure place, as this will be required when you set up Autify Connect Client in a later step.

3. Install Autify Connect Client on your system

Download Autify Connect Client for the platform you’ll be using, and follow the instruction provided for each OS.

OS Archictecture Package type Download Link

Linux / macOS

  1. Unzip the file you downloaded.

  2. Run the following command to see if it shows the help dialog. If it didn’t work you may have downloaded the app for a different environment.

    ./autifyconnect -h
    
  3. Replace xxxxxx with the key of an access point and run the command. Your Autify Connect Client will establish a connection to Autify Connect Server so that it's ready to run tests.

    ./autifyconnect --key xxxxxx
    

Windows

  1. Unzip the file you downloaded.

    If you see warning message during the download please ignore it and continue to download.

    For Chrome, click the allow icon right side of Discard button, then you will see the “Keep” option.

    In that case, you need to add the Connect Client to the exclusion list

Test execution with API

Tests using Autify Connect can be performed in the following ways by API:

  • Execute a Test Plan with a specified Access Point from /schedule endpoint
  • Execute Scenarios from /execute_scenarios endpoint with the name of your Access Point

In addition, Autify CLI also supports Autify Connect.
