Programatically update test Execution status

Hi Everybody, I want to enquire if it is possible to update the execution status of silk central tests programatically. We use Silk Central for managing our test cases and manual test execution results are saved here.

We have developed an automation framework with Selenium which is not JUnit based. Hence, we cannot use the SCTM JUnit integration to update our test results. We did go through the TMAPI guide to look for any Java API/SOAP method that could mark a test as pass/fail. However, I do not find any that could of help. The tmexecution service WSDL lists methods, but do not find any that can do what we are looking for.

Service - http://<silkcentralhost>:<port>/Services1.0/services/tmexecution?wsdl

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi manishaery,

This is currently not possible using the web services, as Silk Central is not designed to store status' of tests which have been executed outside of Silk Central.

What is possible is to add a new test type implemented as a Silk Central Third-Party Test Type Plugin.

Information on this can be found in the following area:
