This topic explains how to configure an automated nightly testing process and reporting.

To automate the nightly testing process:

  1. In the GUI, define the preferences you want to apply across multiple test scenarios.
  2. Define the command line arguments required to achieve your objectives. You can use localsettings to override the GUI preferences.
  3. Develop a script or batch file to invoke your command line interface commands and perform any additional operations you want to automate.
  4. Use a scheduling utility (such as cron or the Windows scheduling program) to run the test at a specified time each night.
