Create a Scheduling Server

The scheduling server keeps track of what tests to run and sends this data to the execution servers.

Before proceeding, there are a few things to confirm regarding the computer you will be using as the Scheduling Server:

  • The software must be run from a Windows Administrator account.
  • User Account Control must be turned off completely (set to Never notify).
  • The Scheduling Server requires a Test Studio Runtime installation or higher.

If you do not meet the above requirements, the software will not launch or will quit immediately.

Configuring a Scheduling Server for remote execution requires that you install the Storage Service on a machine you can access from the Scheduling Server. If the Scheduling Server has a Standalone installation, enable the Scheduling Component.

1.  Open Test Studio. In the top navigation menu click the Set button in the Scheduling tab.

If you don't have MongoDB installed on the local machine you need to specify the remote machine name that has MongoDB installed. See highlighted.

4.  In the Scheduling tab verify the information displayed and click Apply. Verify the Scheduling Service is running from lower left. Optionally you can configure Email (SMTP) server. This is in case you would like to receive scheduling result via email.
