Pega-AutoTest agents

The agents in the Pega-AutoTest ruleset perform processing of unit test suites.

Unit test suites are scheduled in the Automated Unit Testing landing page and run as background processes. The agent activity Rule-AutoTest-Case.RunTestSuitesFromAgent checks to see which unit test suites are scheduled to run within the agent's current interval and runs those that are due. The default interval for this agent is 5 minutes.

The agent activity Rule-AutoTest-Case.RunRecursiveTestSuites checks to see if any unit test suites are set to run on a periodic schedule (for example, every week). If a unit test suite is set to run on a periodic schedule, this activity ensures that the unit test suite runs at its scheduled times. The default interval for this activity to check for any periodically scheduled unit test suites is 5 minutes.
