How to Use

Connect to service

     //Connect to cloud hosted Zephyr Scale service
     var zService = new ZephyrScaleCloudService("app url", "user api token");

     //Connect to server hosted Zephyr Scale service
     var zService = new ZephyrScaleOnPremService("app url", "username", "password");

     //Get a test case by Key
     var testCase = zService.TestCasesGet("POC-T1");

     //Create a new Test case
     var newTestCase = ZephyrOnPremService.TestCaseCreate(new TestCaseCreateRequest
                        {
                            ProjectKey = "PCO",
                            Folder = "/Automation",

Custom options to connect Service - Cloud / Server

There are some level of custom customization available on the service that can be passed on via the constuctor.

  1. restApiVersion - Rest API version for the Zephyr Service (default value: 'v2')
  2. folderSeparator - Folder separator string (default value: '/')
  3. logPrefix - Prefix text that will be added to all the logs generated from this service (default value: 'Zephyr: ')
  4. pageSizeSearchResult - Page size for search request (default value: '50')
  5. requestRetryTimes - Number of time to retry when there is a network failure (default value: '1'). You can increase the number of times to retry based on your infrastructure if there are chance for a request to fail randomly
  6. timeToSleepBetweenRetryInMilliseconds - Time to sleep in milliseconds between each time a call is retry (default value: '1000'). Applied only when requestRetryTimes is more than 1
  7. assertResponseStatusOk - True/False whether the response code status from the server needs to be asserted for OK (default value 'true')
  8. listOfResponseCodeOnFailureToRetry - Any of these status code matched from response will then use for retry the request. For example Proxy Authentication randomly failing can be then used to retry (default value 'null' which means it is not checking any response code for fail retry)
  9. requestTimeoutInSeconds - Control the total time to wait for any request made to the Zephyr Scale server. Default time is set to 300 seconds and it can be increased if the data on the server is too many and requires more time to process to respond
  10. retryOnRequestTimeout - True/False whether the request should retry on when the server fails to respond within the timeout period, retry on when server timeouts for a request
  11. proxyKeyName - Provide name for proxy which has the detail information how to authenticate (see more information below)

A scenario where you have network issues and you want to retry operation, then try this

     //Connect to cloud hosted Zephyr Scale service
     var zService = new ZephyrScaleCloudService("app url", "user api token",
          requestRetryTimes: 10,
          timeToSleepBetweenRetryInMilliseconds: 1500,
          assertResponseStatusOk: true,
          listOfResponseCodeOnFailureToRetry: new System.Net.HttpStatusCode []  { System.Net.HttpStatusCode.ProxyAuthenticationRequired  },
          retryOnRequestTimeout: false
        );

The above will apply an automatic retry of a maximum 20 times, giving itself a break of 1500 milliseconds between each request made to Zeyhpr that fails with a response code of HttpStatusCode.ProxyAuthenticationRequired

Interesting Use Cases

Folder Recursive Create - Cloud Version

With the cloud version there are some limitations on the folder, where the service by default

  • does not return the full path
  • does not build the parent tree structure
  • does not create the full tree structure in a single command
  • does not fail when the folder already exists, instead create a new folder

FolderCreateRecursive - this option will create the full path and also checks if the folder already exists on any level of the path. For example, '/Automation/A/B/C', this method will create the full path in a single request and also if any of the folder available will be skipped and only required will be created

FolderWithFullPath - this option will return you the list of folder but along with that, one of the additional property on the model is "FullPath", that build the full path of each folder in the list

Tips

  1. [Server Mode] When updating test case, try to provide only the required property or provide only those properties that require update, for example, CustomFields or Labels or Properties
     var testcase = zService.TestCaseById(testCaseId).ToTestCaseUpdate();
     testcase.CustomFields.YouCustomFieldName = "YourCustomFieldValue";
     zService.TestCaseUpdate(testCaseId, new TestCaseCreateRequest { CustomFields = testcase.CustomFields });
  1. How to use proxy when making a request. Provide a similar method which can be called before the communicating to Zephyr. Configurations, is a singleton class which reads the values of certain properties for your project either stored in the config or environment variable (which will help in the continous integration pipelines). Proxy will be enabled based on condition in your settings or config. Pj.Library.PjUtility.EnvironmentConfig.AppSettingsConfigData, holds the dictionary which be looked for the proxy information.

Proxy_IsProxyRequired: Determines whether proxy is required

Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName: Name of the proxy key that will be used as a reference, you can have multiple proxy information with different keys

Proxy_{Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName}_Host: Proxy host url

Proxy_{Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName}_Port: Proxy port

Proxy_{Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName}_ByPassProxyOnLocal: true/false based on whether you want to by pass porxy on local

Proxy_{Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName}_UseDefaultCredentials: true/false based on whether you want to use the defaul creds

Proxy_{Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName}_UseOnlyInPipeline: true/false (upcoming feature), for now keep it false, this wil help in using the proxy only to be used in the CI pipelines or remote machines

Proxy_{Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName}_UsernameEnvironmentKeyName: Does not hold the username instead you need to create an environment variables which will hold the username to the proxy. The value for this is the [key] name that is used in the environment variable. The process will automatically fetch the value during runtime

Proxy_{Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName}_PasswordEnvironmentKeyName: Does not hold the password instead you need to create an environment variables which will hold the password to the proxy. The value for this is the [key] name that is used in the environment variable. The process will automatically fetch the value during runtime

public static void EnableProxyOnJiraZephyrService()
        {
            if (Configurations.RequestProxyIsEnabled)
            {
                Pj.Library.PjUtility.EnvironmentConfig.AppSettingsConfigData.AddOrUpdate("Proxy_IsProxyRequired", Configurations.RequestProxyIsEnabled.ToString());
                Pj.Library.PjUtility.EnvironmentConfig.AppSettingsConfigData.AddOrUpdate($"Proxy_{Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName}_Host", Configurations.RequestProxyHost);
                Pj.Library.PjUtility.EnvironmentConfig.AppSettingsConfigData.AddOrUpdate($"Proxy_{Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName}_Port", Configurations.RequestProxyPort.ToString());
                Pj.Library.PjUtility.EnvironmentConfig.AppSettingsConfigData.AddOrUpdate($"Proxy_{Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName}_ByPassProxyOnLocal", Configurations.RequestProxyByPassProxyOnLocal.ToString());
                Pj.Library.PjUtility.EnvironmentConfig.AppSettingsConfigData.AddOrUpdate($"Proxy_{Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName}_UseDefaultCredentials", Configurations.RequestProxyUseDefaultCredentials.ToString());
                Pj.Library.PjUtility.EnvironmentConfig.AppSettingsConfigData.AddOrUpdate($"Proxy_{Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName}_UseOnlyInPipeline", Configurations.RequestProxyUseOnlyInPipeline.ToString());

                Pj.Library.PjUtility.EnvironmentConfig.AppSettingsConfigData.AddOrUpdate($"Proxy_{Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName}_UsernameEnvironmentKeyName", "Request.Proxy.Username");
                Pj.Library.PjUtility.EnvironmentConfig.AppSettingsConfigData.AddOrUpdate($"Proxy_{Configurations.JiraZephyrProxyConfigName}_PasswordEnvironmentKeyName", "Request.Proxy.Password");
            }
        }
        

Upcoming Features

  1. Zephyr - Specflow integration module (automatically push results from Specflow to Zephyr)
  2. Zephyr - nUnit integration module (automatically push results from nUnit tests to Zephyr)
  3. Zephyr - Postman integration module (automatically push results from Postman tests to Zephyr)

These features will help to track the automated test execution back to Zephyr and you will have more control on each of the test cases from

  • Control on what you to push - whether you want to push everything to Zephyr or only for those test cases you are interested from a list of test you have
  • Control on where you push - for a single test in nUnit or Specflow you can push into one or more different test cases in Zephyr or even to multiple projects
  • Control on how your push
    • based on the executing environment, for example for a test case, if run against Test Environment, then TestCase1, or if running against Stag, then TestCase2
    • based on the data, for example you can have a single test case running against several test scenarios (may be different products you are testing), you can now push into different test cases based on the data from these scenarios or more simpler like different products to different test cases
    • all of the above can be combined
  1. End to End business logic implementation - Create Folder, Test cases, Test Cycle and Test Execution
  2. Plugin config through json
