This topic explains how to configure an automated nightly testing process that sends results to Team Server.
To automate the nightly testing process:

  1. In the GUI, define the preferences that you want to be applied across multiple test scenarios.
    • For automated reported, be sure to define settings for e-mail, reports, reports> e-mail notifications, Team Server.
    • For automated task assignment, also define settings for authors, scope and authorship, scope and authorship> authorship mappings.
  2. Define the command line arguments needed to achieve your objectives. Use localsettings as needed to override the GUI preferences if needed.
    • Remember to use the -report command to generate a report and the -publishteamserver command to add the report to the Team Server or the -publish command to send the report to DTP.
  3. Develop a script or batch file to invoke your command line interface commands and perform any additional operations you want automated.
  4. Use a scheduling utility (such as cron or the Windows scheduling program) to run the test at a specified time each night.
