----------------------------------

In SilkCentral TestManager, what are Execution Dependencies and how can they be configured?

ANSWER
----------------------------------

An Execution Dependency allows the user to configure the automatic execution of an execution definition depending on the result of another execution definition.

  1. Select the Execution tab.
  2. Select the execution definition that will be the Master execution definition.
  3. Select the Dependencies tab (the execution view must be selected).
  4. Click "Add Dependent Execution Definition" button to open the Add Dependent Execution Definition dialog.
  5. Select from the drop down the "Condition" that is to trigger the Dependent eExecution Definition.
    • Passed.
    • Failed.
    • Not Executed.
    • Any Status.

  6. From the menu tree select the Dependent Execution Definition.
  7. Select the radiobutton indicating the location where the execution of the Dependent Execution Definition is to be executed.
    • Execution Server as specified.
    • Same Execution Server as selected Execution Definition"s Execution Server.
    • Specific Execution Server(you must select a pre-configured Execution Server from the drop-down list).

  8. Click "OK" to create the dependency.


Note that SilkCentral TestManager will not allow you to create cyclical execution dependencies.
