Launchpad Home

We’ve now come up with a new platform where all the applications of Opkey will now be available at one place to be accessed directly. The Launchpad is a common platform to access all the Opkey applications at a single place without switching between the portals. The user can now login to the Launchpad and navigate to the Opkey applications such as Opkey Web, Opkey Surge, PCloudy, Opkey Test Accelerator, Opkey Test Discovery(BETA), and so on. 

All the licensed applications are placed under the  “My Apps” Category. 

All the applications of Opkey are placed under the “All Apps” category.

Those applications whose license has been approved can be directly accessed from the platform whereas for those applications whose license is pending will display a tab of “Request License” alongside

Under the “For Business” heading you’ll be able to view three categories. Let us have a look at each of them.

All – It displays all the Opkey applications to be accessed at one place.

Test Accelerators – All the accelerators consist of two dashboards – Quality Dashboard and Patch Testing Dashboard.

By default when the user views a Test Accelerator, the accelerator opens up to the view of Quality Dashboard. The dashboard will be displayed on the basis of Test Cycle and Releases as per the respective application. 

The Patch Testing Dashboard will display the user those Releases whose Release Type is Patch and Status is completed, under the Releases drop down. In the Impact Assessment users will be able to view the impacted test cases of that Release selected with respect to that Application’s Process.

 The filtration can be done for the artifacts in the Test Accelerators with the tags. Users can apply the tags in each artifact to filter out the test cases for the respective application. Each tagged artifact will be displayed post filtration in their respective application. 

Two System defined tags have been introduced of Application and Application_ Process in the Filtration. Users can now filter out their artifacts by adding these two tags as per the respective Application and Application_Process.

The “My Process” tab will display the filtered test cases on the basis of Application’s Processes and Application Tag. In each process user can view those test cases which are mapped to that particular selected process.

The “Business Process Designer” will display the mapped Business Components and Business Process of the respective application.

 The “Continuous Testing” tab will display the mapped Jobs, Test Cases, and Results of the respective application. 

More Apps – Under the more seven apps of Continuous Test  Automation, Test Discovery, Surge, Job Portal, Multi Browser, Impact Analysis, Oracle Fusion.

For Mobile Teams- Under this tab there are three apps for Mobile Testing. They are 

Responsive Testing for Web Apps, Mobile and Browser on Demand, Certifaya for Web Apps

For Developers – Under this tab we have one app of Opkey on Eclipse.

For QA- Under this tab you can view apps of Create Test Model, Create BDD Files, Create Data File.

Marketplace – Marketplace, is integrated with Opkey, where our developers will be able to utilize the addons through the Marketplace at our Opkey portal. The Marketplace portal will comprise of various addons which will be uploaded by Opkey users and developers. 

These addons will be beneficial for our Opkey users who can subscribe to the addon and successfully use its features as per their requirement. If in future, the user doesn’t want to use any of those addons, they can unsubscribe to it. The portal comprises various categories of addons which are categorized as Top Rated, Top Liked, there are Free and Paid addons also. For now it is not accessible for all users, however very soon we are going to give rights to users outside of Opkey to visit the portal and upload the addons.

How to use the Marketplace Portal

The user will have to login to the Opkey portal and can click on Manage Addon to visit the Marketplace Portal. Else the user can directly login to the marketplace portal to use its features. 

The Marketplace is open for only Opkey users for now.

When a user gets login to the Marketplace portal, the user will have to Subscribe to the addon, which they want to use. Post subscribing to the addon, the user will have to navigate to Opkey Web or Opkey Surge portal where they can view the option of “Addon Launcher”. The “Addon Launcher” helps to launch the addons. 

The Addon Launcher will display all the addons which the user will subscribe to on the Marketplace portal. The user can view and utilize those addons as per their requirement.


Add On Launcher

The addon launcher is placed on the left-side panel which displays the addons that are subscribed. On clicking the Manage Addons link, the user will be redirected to the Marketplace portal.

We can use two categories of addons from the addon launcher. Those are of Utility and Workflow type. The Keyword and Test Accelerator types will not be displayed on the add-on launcher. The list will only display 5 addons and the rest will be displayed in the “View All Addon Link” The keywords will get added in the keyword list when the user subscribes from the Marketplace portal.


Manage Addons

There is a Manage Addon tab, which comprises of Subscription tab and Developers Workspace. The Developers Workspace tab will be visible only to those users who will be granted the rights to upload the addons in the Marketplace.


Under the subscription tab, a user will be able to view all the addons which have been subscribed. The next tab on the timeline will display the Version of the addon. The user can have a look at the versions and subscribe as per their requirement. If the user subscribes to the old version, they will get to view the button of “Upgrade to Latest Version”, which will redirect to the addons version list page, from where a user can subscribe to any version according to their need.

There are basically four types of addons which we are providing namely: Keywords, Utilities and Shared Workflow and Test Accelerators.

Keywords – In this type of addons there will be keywords which will be developed  to create scripts. 

Test Accelerators – The developer will upload the exported Opkey script in the category of test accelerator for others to use it. Users can subscribe to the addon and use the script on their project or on their domain for their requirement. This eliminates the time taken for every user to write the script.

Utilities – These type of addons are built for extra functionality and they are of miscellaneous kind.

Shared Workflow- A workflow addon is a combination of “States and Transitions” where user can either add  By-Default States (Draft, Review, Approve and Publish)  or Customized States which they wish to add.  By adding those States, through Transitions we depict that the particular file or artifact in Opkey is in which state. The transition helps the user know from which state to which state it can be moved. This Workflow typically represents the lifecycle of a process within an organization. The Workflow can be associated in different manner for individual projects. Additionally, we can define separate workflows for specific modules, within the same project. To be more precise, the user can define three different workflows for an Object Repository, a Test Case, and for the Suite. Workflow 1 can be defined for an Object Repository, Workflow 2 for a Test Case, Workflow 3 for  the Suite and so on. It is created by the user as per their need.

The Default Workflow addon of Opkey which we are providing to the user, can be used directly or they even can customize the Workflow as per their requirement for their Projects and Modules. The rules and properties, or transitions of Default Workflows can only be viewed and are not editable. The user can add Workflows as per their requirement, create rules and change the properties. The user can create customized workflows which they’ll be able to edit.
