Is it possible to upload SilkTest files automatically to SilkCentral Test Manager?

Resolution:

QUESTION

How do I ensure that log files and bitmaps I create during my tests get automatically uploaded as results to SCTM?

ANSWER


Test Manager creates a temporary result directory at the following location..

C:\DOCUME~1\user_name\LOCALS~1\Temp\SCC_ExecServer_19124_19125\PerfProjects\

..for each execution, where each file in this directory will be included in the result file list of that execution result. Test Manager passes the path of that result directory as "WorkingDir" ( Working Directory) info to the SilkTest application. The SilkTest script would have to use this path and place created files into this directory, in order to have them stored in Test Manager.

It is possible to use the SilkTest SYS_GetDir () function in order to return the working folder at the time of execution. So if you ensure that any log files, bitmaps etc are written to this location during the execution of the SilkTest script, then you can be assured that the file/files created will be uploaded to SCTM.

As an example:

[-] testcase CreateFileAndIntoTestManager() appstate none
[ ] STRING sCurrentDir
[ ] sCurrentDir = SYS_GetDir ()
[ ] print(sCurrentDir)
[ ] //create file in the current working directory
[ ] HANDLE hFile
[ ] hFile = FileOpen("{sCurrentDir}\myFile.txt", FM_WRITE, null)
[ ] FileWriteLine(hFile, "Some text")
[ ] FileClose(hFile)
