The Artifacts Dialler present on the Dashboard of OpKey Web allows the user to create New artifacts on the Project Workspace.

The Dialler has 9 Artifacts of : 

Test Case – Test Case is a collection of Test Steps that contain a Keyword, a Control Flow Construct, or a Function Library. This module is integrated with the Recording Feature which helps while recording the actions performed on a web application.  


Function Library – Function Library is a reusable component that can be used multiple times across same or different Test Cases. These functions are user actions which can be repetitive. The functions made in this module can be further used among different Test Cases in the form of Test Steps.


Gherkin – Gherkin is a line-oriented language that uses indentation to define structure. Line endings terminate statements and either spaces or tabs may be used for indentation. Most lines in Gherkin start with a special keyword. Most lines in Gherkin start with a special keyword. 


Model – 


Coded Function Library – The Coded Function Library is an advanced feature of OpKey Web. Coded Function editor provides you a platform where you can write your own function code of tasks to be performed in test automation. Once, they are written in Java, you can compile Java codes and debug easily. You can execute your Coded Function directly or map them with Test Case and execute them. 


Object Repository – Object Repository is a collection of objects of the web application upon which actions are performed during test execution. OpKey tests the dynamically changing application by identifying and fetching the objects from web application along with their expected values and properties. You can easily fetch objects, create object repository and gather information for testing the web application.


Global Data Repository – Global Data repository is a data storage and management feature consisting of a set of data used in the software testing. The data in the Global Data repository can be used while parameterizing the test during test iteration. 


Service Repository – The Web Services Repository stores information about Web Services. The WSDL files that contain these WEB services definitions are stored together with their related XML schemas. 


Suite In OpKey, Suite is a collection of Test Cases for execution. There may be one or more than one Test Cases/Gherkin files for execution. Each Test Case in a Suite should be complete in itself and independent of other Test Cases. You can add, remove, move up/down Test Cases and rearrange them as per their order of execution.

The section just below the dialler section is of “Recently Used Artifacts in Folder”Project Workspace.

This section will display the latest ten artifacts used in the Folder.

The section below this is of Artifacts Share in Folder: Project Workspace.

This section of the dashboard will display the share of the artifacts in the Folder. 

The section on the top right of the dashboard will display the Last Tested Build.

This section will display the Current Executing Build in OpKey Web.


The next section displays the Last Executed Test in OpKey Web.
