Test Sessions

The execution of tests in the Interoperability Test Platform (ITP) is performed through the creation of sessions. Sessions are a selection of use cases and test cases with a validation purpose and possibly a common scope. During the creation of a session, the user sets the address of the SUT, defines information related to the session and selects the test cases to be included. After creation, it is possible to run tests by changing parameters for each test case. The created session is available on the home screen of the ITP (as shown in the picture below), allowing the user to consult previously run tests, delete and run new tests.

Home screen with the user sessions: ITP Home

Creating a Test Session

To create a session you must perform three main steps: SUT Selection, Session Setup and SUT Configuration.

Step 1: SUT Selection

In this step, you must enter basic information about the system under test (SUT) by the platform: the type of the SUT and its URL.

SUT: The currently supported SUT types are Service Provider, Mobile Money Operator 1 and Mobile Money Operator 2.

URL: To test your system, it must be accessible from the test platform. Enter the URL of your SUT, which the test platform will use to send requests as part of test execution.

If you do not currently have a SUT, but still wish to explore the interoperability test platform, you can simulate a Service Provider SUT using the instructions here.

Step 01 - Selecting the system under test: ITP Session SUT Selection

Step 2: Session Setup

In this step, you can add information about the session you are creating:

Name: Alias used to name the session. This name will be visible in the dashboard.

Description: Information about the session, to help explain the purpose of the session.

Use Cases: All use case and test cases which are relevant for the currently-selected SUT type are displayed here. You can select any set of test cases to run during this session.

Step 2 - Session Setup form: ITP Session Info

Step 3: Configure SUT

During the execution of the tests, your SUT will need to communicate with other components (such as FSP simulators). In step 3 of the session creation wizard, you will be presented with the URLs that your SUT should use for this communication. These URLs can also be retrieved after the session has been created from the session results page.

Step 3 - Component URLs: ITP Session Configure Components

After the session has been created, you will be able to see the test cases selected during creation. From there, it is possible to select a specific test case and proceed with the test execution.

Running Tests

Once your test session has been created, there are two ways to trigger test execution, depending on the flow under test. For flows which begin with a request from the SUT, simply trigger this request on your SUT. For flows which begin with a request from another component, a button will be visible on the test case results page labelled "Run Test Case". Clicking the button will send this initial request, and the remainder of the test flow will proceed according to the test case definition.
