Hi,

Silk Central provides API calls to start Execution Plans in Silk Central - those are also used by the Jenkins integration.

In Silk Central go to Help > Documentation > Silk Central API Specification and check out the tmexecution webservice - it provides startExecution, getStateOfExecution, and getExecutionResult. With those methods you can start the execution, track it till its finished and then collect the results.

Hi Florian,

Thank you for getting back. Do you have a road map for TeamCity-SCTM plugin ?

The reason I ask is that we have about 400 applications , creating axis client stub and mapping each JUnit test to Silk Central test could be quite tedious as I can imagine. We are looking for a simple and quick integration. Please advise.

Thanks!

Hi,

at the moment there are no short-term plans to integrate with TeamCity.

Please raise an RFE via support line - the more demand for this integration the bigger the likelihood that it is implemented.

Hi Florian,

Are there any maven plugins for Silk that could run the silk tests making it agnostic to the actual CI server being used ?

Also, something similar with ant and gradle ?

Thanks.
