Here you can find our dynamic API documentation.

In addition, if you are using Jenkins for your CI/CD flows, we also have a simple plugin for that. Here’s a tutorial that will help you through the process of setting TestProject-Jenkins integration: https://blog.testproject.io/2019/02/28/integrating-testproject-with-jenkins-ci/.

What is an Agent?

TestProject Agent is a cross-platform local desktop automation component that communicates with TestProject’s cloud testing repository and is responsible for local test execution.

This allows for a highly collaborative environment where you have Agents installed on local machines that allow you to run, develop and share tests on any web browser or device (Android or iOS). These tests are then stored in a shared testing repository where team members can work together on running and maintaining them.

We make sure to always keep the TestProject Agent up to date with the latest tools, drivers and SDKs required for your test automation. All you need to do is download and install the Agent in a simple installation process on any of your favorite operating systems (Windows, Linux or macOS).
