Manage Your Test Environments

Add test environments and link them to test runs.

Introduction

Test environments can be used to direct testers running tests in a specific environment, like a workstation, device, operating system, or application environment.

The Test Environments overview page shows the test environments in your TestMonitor, including their descriptions. Test environments are configured application-wide. Each project reuses the same test environments.

To open the Test Environments overview page, click the Cog in the header. The Settings page displays. On the left side of the Settings page, click Test Environments below the PROJECTS & TESTS menu heading. This is where you manage test environments in the TestMonitor environment.
