Test configurations are files that define how a connected instances of Jtest, C++test, and dotTEST should analyze code and execute tests. Each tool ships with its own set of test configurations that you can upload to DTP, modify, and distribute to other instances of the tool. This centralized approach ensures that your code analysis and test execution policy is being followed. Refer to the Jtest, C++test, and dotTeST documentation for additional information about test configurations.
Choose Test Configurations from the settings menu icon.
You can perform the following actions:
- Click on the gear icon to open the rule map editor. See Rule Maps for additional information.
- Click the upload button to upload an existing test configuration. See Uploading Existing Test Configurations.
- Click the add button to begin creating a new test configuration. See Adding Test Configurations.
- Click on a tool name to access and configure its associated test configurations. See the following chapters for additional information:
About Test Configuration Access
You can configure test configuration visibility and read-write permissions to ensure that teams are using the appropriate test configuration according to development policy. Test configurations can have the following types of visibility:
- Private: The test configuration is only visible to users that added the test configuration.
- Project: The test configuration is assigned to one or more projects. Only users assigned to the project or projects can view the test configuration
- Global: Any user assigned to any project can view the test configuration. If non-admin users in your organization have been granted the
editGlobalTestConfigpermission, then they will also be able to modify the test configuration. See GRS Permissions for additional information.
Test configurations are marked with icons with an access type in the test configurations page sidebar:
For instructions on how to assign test configurations, see Editing Test Configurations.
User role also determines the depth of interaction users can have with test configurations. Leaders of any project(s) can add new test configurations and assign them to their projects. Refer to User Administration for information about user roles. Leaders can also modify or delete them (see Managing Test Configurations).
The following table describes the read-write permissions associated with user roles:
(only visible to owner)
(only visible to project members)
(visible to all users)
Users that are not project leaders of an assigned project will view the test configuration in read-only mode unless they have been granted the
- Editable fields are grayed-out and static analysis rules and other configurations cannot be modified.
- Users that are leaders of any project or who have administrator level access can view and edit test configurations.
- Ordinary members can also download the test configuration as .properties file.
