Creating and Importing Projects

Introduction

The Test Project is a collection of all your test-related data, including Test Cases and Connections.

You must have a Test Project set up before you can create or run any Test Cases in Provar. To do this, you can either create a new Test Project or import an existing Test Project. Refer to the sections below for more information.

Creating a new Test Project

When you open Provar for the first time, a ‘Welcome window’ will appear.  This window provides some helpful links for getting started.

If you wish to create a new Test Project, choose ‘Create a new Test Project’ and you will be presented with the screen below.

Click ‘Next’ to continue, then supply a name for your Test Project, and click ‘Next’ again.  

If you wish to choose a location for your project which is not within the workspace, uncheck the ‘Use Default Location’ checkbox and specify your location. Leaving this ticked is recommended.

To create one or more Connections immediately, you can tick checkboxes Create a Salesforce connectionCreate a Database connection and Create a and Messaging connection. To create these later, leave these options unticked. (Refer to Adding a Connection for more information.)

Finally, click ‘Next’ to create your new Test Project.

Importing a Test Project

If you have been provided with a ready-made Test Project, you need not create a new Test Project. Instead, you can import your Test Project by choosing ‘Importing an existing Test Project‘. You will be presented with the screen below:

Choose Select root directory if you have an unzipped project folder, or Select archive file if you have a zipped file. Enter your project location, then click the ‘Finish’ button. Provar will automatically create the Project and add its Connections.

Next, Provar will start downloading the metadata for any Salesforce connections and validate the Test Cases against this downloaded metadata. It is recommended to let these operations complete before use.
