Introducing a new option for creating a list of tests
CDRouter now allows users to define and manage custom testlists, which are a collection of tests that can be named and referenced within test packages. This feature makes it possible to define a single set of tests and then select that set of tests by name when creating test packages.
For example, a user may want to define a set of 50 tests for basic qualification of every device that they test. This list of tests can be created and given a name such as basic qualification tests. Any test package that is created can then include the testlist basic qualification tests alongside individual test cases, modules, or add-ons.
Using Test Lists in CDRouter
Test lists are created by setting the Use As Testlist option when creating a test package within CDRouter’s web interface.
The Use As Testlist option can also be toggled from the main packages index page by clicking on the testlist icon.
To add a testlist to an existing package, toggle the Show Testlists button in the package editor. This will open a fourth pane showing all available testlists. Testlists can be added in the same manner as addons, modules, and individual test cases.
Try it out!
CDRouter comes installed with pre-defined testlists designed to be used right away on any device. Each testlist contains a selection of test cases we believe every CPE device should pass. This provides a convenient, reliable baseline for testing new devices and also allows new users to get up to speed with CDRouter’s test suites more quickly.
The following pre-defined testlists are curently available:
