If you so choose, you can require users in your Project to use specific Test Platforms that you either assign or they can choose using Assigned Test Platforms. For example, if you wanted users to only use a specific web browser, you could assign a specific browser to them.

  4. Select from the Available Test Platforms the Platform or Platforms you wish to make available in the Project.
  5. Assign Team Access via the Team Access block (Assign, Modify, and Notice are available).
  6. Configure an Email notification to be sent when a User selects their Assigned Test Platform, if desired (more about this here).
  7. Select any desired Other Options from the list at the bottom of the page.
  8. Click the Submit button at the bottom of the page when satisfied.

You have successfully enabled Assigned Test Platforms for a Project.

Requirements

  • Project Manager Role.
  • Pre-existing Test Platforms at the Project level of Centercode that have been filled out by your Testers.

Notes

  • The sub-option Limit Based on Element Value below a selected Test Platform Type allows you to limit the Test Platforms allowed to be selected by a User for the Project. You can limit based on a Text Element from the source Test Platform (via a Regular Expression - see this link for more information on building Regular Expressions), or you can limit based on a Single Choice Element from the source Test Platform (by selecting a valid response or valid responses).
  • The Other Option Assigned Platforms Must be Unique to this Project, when enabled, will make it so that a Platform selected for this Project cannot be selected as another Project's Assigned Test Platform. Along the same lines, a Platform already selected for another Project's Assigned Test Platform cannot be selected for this Project.
