We would like to execute testcases using Jenkins pipeline, but pipeline doesn’t have access to DevTest servers in higher environments. In this case, we are trying to use a single package with all TestRunner components and place it in a remote server. This way we can execute TestRunner by passing required parameters. Is there a single package with all TestRunner components that can be placed on a remote machine?
DevTest on release 10.4.
Out of the box there is no single package with all TestRunner components to be placed on a remote server.
When installing DevTest, there is an option to install just the Workstation and not the server components - The Registry, VSE, Coordinator and Simulator will not be installed. With this option just the Workstation and the command line utilities are installed, including the TestRunner.
