Issue/Introduction

The application programmers are going to be testing Endevor. Since testing with our own data is not allowed, the Endevor Sample Application was installed and setup for testing.  A seperate logon proc has been created to allow the programmers to access the new release.  How should the testing be completed? 

Environment

Release : 18.0 18.1

Component : CA Endevor Software Change Manager

Resolution

The Endevor Sample application is provided as a training tool and can be installed for sites that cannot test with their own data. This application basically provides examples of a lifecycle, inventory definitions & sample processors and elements. Because the application programmers/testser cannot test with with the live data (existing environments), for testing this is just a representation of the new release the panels and new features can be tested if they have been implemented, and the differences between the new release and production release can be reviewed. 

The testers should be provided a copy of the release summary for 18.0 and 18.1 so the enhancements and new feature to the product can be viewed,  

The Endevor Sample Application is just a way to see the new release without doing anything to the existing environment.
