Test Script Upload

Users within your organization that you grant Test Editor privilege to will be able to upload Test Scripts to Touchstone.

You can limit access to those test scripts to yourself, members of your organization, or members of your organization group. You can also give everyone access to those test scripts.

You can adopt TDD (Test-Driven Development) in your organization by enhancing these test scripts in lockstep with the capabilities of your test system over time.

Max Users

The maximum number of users that may be associated to your organization in Touchstone. If there are users in an organization that are no longer active, the Org Rep may 'Reject' that user from the organization's registration (done from the User page) to allow more users to join the organization if needed.

Max Organization Reps

The maximum number of Organization Reps that may be associated to an organization. By default, the user that created the organization becomes the Org Rep and can approve new users to the organization as well as grant user roles for those users. Organizations may switch Org Reps as needed. Org Reps: can approve and reject membership requests, publish test results that belong to the organization, submit requests on behalf of the organization for membership into Org Groups, view and update the roles, monitor the user history of users within the organization, send messages from Touchstone to users within the organization, and are contacted by Touchstone site administrator for issues that pertain to the organization and its test systems.

Max Test Executions (per day)

The maximum number of Test Setups that can be executed in a 24-hour period. This does not place a limit on the number of TestScripts in each Test Setup. To increase the number of allowable Test Executions per day, please refer to the Subscription levels to see if a higher subscription would suit your organization's testing needs.

Max Concurrent Test Executions

The maximum number of Test Setups that can be executed at the same time either by one users or multiple users belonging to the organization. To increase the number of concurrent allowable Test Executions, please refer to the Subscription levels to see if a higher subscription would suit your organization's testing needs.

Basic and Connectathon Test Scripts

Users within your organization will have access to all test scripts in the Basic and Connectathon test groups. As new specification versions are released, new Basic and Connectathon test groups will be added that will test changes in the specification.

Sandbox Test Scripts

Users within your organization will have access to test scripts uploaded by other organizations (assuming those organizations have not restricted access to their test scripts).

You will have immediate access to these test scripts as they are uploaded by other organizations.

Note that these test scripts may not have been tested by AEGIS and may not be of the same quality as Basic, Connectathon, Advanced, and Premium test scripts. They do provide the opportunity to collaborate with other organizations closely without AEGIS playing the "middleman".

Peer-To-Peer Testing

Test Systems within your organization can exchange messages with other test systems within and outside your organization. The interactions would take place via Touchstone proxy endpoints. This allows Touchstone to capture the messages and run the assertions in the test scripts.

Your test systems can both initiate and respond to requests from other test systems.
