I'm doing a number of WPF test. I've been having to manually move the the files from Trunk and copy it locally and then start my testing. I'm looking for a solution on how to integrate the copying of the file into the testing steps.

Hello Karl, 

Can you, please, elaborate some further details on the use case? What is the environment you execute the tests in? Is the execution machine part of a CI setup? Or there is some other configuration you use? 

What are the files you need to copy? Do you mean that you need to copy the test project to the execution machine? Or these are some files related to the WPF app under test? 

These details will help me understand what is the additional action you need to automate and identify what options there are up in front. 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Regards,
Elena

The master test file is saved on our server. As to not alter the main File we copy the file from the server and save it to our local storage which would be the execution machine. The test file is a raw file we mainly use for Verification testing.  So essentially I'm looking to incorporate all of the steps of the copying the file from the server to a folder in the execution machine. Then looking to open the file and execute a console command to restart the program and then proceed with the verification steps.

Hi Karl,

As far as I understand you need to get a copy of the test file to your execution machine. And it seems that the test project files are in some sort of source control. So you can simply clone the remote repository to the specified machine and then perform the rest of the tasks. 

In general, all these tasks can be part of a CI pipeline to completely automate this process. Test Studio tests can be seamlessly integrated in different types of continuous integration tools like Azure or Jenkins, or TeamCity, etc. 

I hope this information will help you to find the best setup to suit your needs. Don't hesitate to contact us again in case you have further queries.

Does UI testing really fit into CI/CD?
