Users can monitor the conformance of tests systems to a specification based on Conformance Suites available in Touchstone.
Prior to Touchstone 5.0.0, users were limited to pre-configured conformance tests in Touchstone. The following Conformance-testing capabilities have been added in Touchstone 5.0.0:
Organizations (with the appropriate subscription level) can create their own Conformance Suites with custom test groups and test scripts.
Client (Peer-to-Peer) interactions can be monitored as part of Conformance (in addition to Server interactions).
Organizations can optionally make their Conformance Suites accessible to members of their Organization only or to members of their Org Group or to everyone.
Conformance Suites and Results are versioned. This allows organizations to publish their results at any time and continue their testing without affecting published results.
Suite authors can allows users to publish conformance results or prevent them from doing so.
Suite authors can have conformance results tracked separately for XML and JSON formats.
Suite authors can have conformance results tracked separately for supported interactions (in the test system’s capability statement) or disregard the capability statement and include all interactions.
