"Execute and Save Reslut" button

Postby arcia » Wed Jan 12, 2011 6:37 pm


The company I work for has recently adapt TestLink 1.8.5 as our test management system.

The company has it's own set of Java base automation test script.

My task now is to integrate these automation scripts with TestLink.

I am new to all of these, and still learning the interface.

From reading the forum, I gather that there is a "Execute and Save Result" button which should allow me to start off automation script (in my case, they are Java programs). From one of the threads I have read, this button can be enabled during installation of TestLink.

How exactly do I enable this button? I was not the one installed the TestLink for the company. I have a local copy to work with. For this local copy, I used automatic installation and this button is no where to be found. Do I need to change some configuration file?

Any help will be appreciated. Thank you

I had the same problem and discovered that some functions in the php code needed to be fixed.
To activate the button you have to set $tlCfg->api->enabled = TRUE in config.inc.php.
The communication with your remote test application is done by xmlrpc.
You can find a workaround with a perl example here:
