Every module within ManagementStudio has a testing feature available to it, which enables project administrators to define tests for different scenarios, and provides the mechanism for tests to be issued and collected from end-users. These are known as Test Types. For example, tests could be created for User Acceptance Testing (UAT), Quality Assurance (QA) and Compatibility Testing etc.
The example that follows will use the User Migration module to illustrate the concept although this approach applies to all modules within ManagementStudio.
Accessing the Test Sign-Offs Tab
The Testing Tab needs to be enabled within the Admin Section. Administration\Select the relevant module\Main Tabs.
To view the Test Sign-Offs tab:
- Choose the relevant module from the vertical menu bar on the left (1), in this example, User Migrations, and double click click an item from the User migration grid (2) to open the details panel.
- Select the Test Sign-Offs tab (1) from the tabbed menu bar.
The Test Sign-Offs Tab Layout
Although the options will vary between modules, the layout consist of three core areas:
- The Control Bar (1).
- The Test Sign-Offs main grid (2).
- The Test Sign-Offs detailed panel (3).
