How is parallel or sequential test execution applied?

  • Dark
    Light

Whether a test is executed in parallel or sequentially depends on whether parallel test execution is enabled or disabled in Workspace settings, how the test is executed, and whether or not the data feature is used.
The following table shows how parallel or sequential test execution is applied.

Use of data How the test is executed If Parallel test execution is enabled in Workspace settings If Parallel test execution is disabled in Workspace settings
Data table is not used Click Run now in scenario ・If other tests are executed simultaneously => Parallel ・If other tests are executed simultaneously => Sequential
Execute a test plan set to run in parallel ・Within the test plan => Parallel
・Multiple test plans => Parallel
・Within the test plan => Sequential
・Multiple test plans => Sequential
Execute a test plan set to run sequentially ・Within the test plan => Sequential
・Multiple test plans => Parallel
・Within the test plan => Sequential
・Multiple test plans => Sequential
Data table is used Click Run now in scenario ・Data used in scenarios => Parallel
・Execution with other tests => Parallel
・Data used in scenarios => Sequential
・Execution with other tests => Sequential
Execute a test plan set to run in parallel ・Data used in scenarios=> Parallel
・Within the test plan => Parallel
・Multiple test plans => Parallel
・Data used in scenarios => Sequential

  • If Parallel test execution is set to Disable in your Workspace settings, the Run in: Parallel setting in the test plan does not apply. All tests will be executed sequentially.
