Software requirements

In most cases, you can begin developing and executing tests immediately upon successful installation of TestArchitect. In some special cases, however – such as testing on certain platforms, or having TestArchitect integrated with third-party tools – additional software requirements apply.

Integration with third-party tools

This topic lists additional software requirements needed to support the integration of TestArchitect with third-party tools.

Team Foundation Server–Microsoft Test Manager integration

  • To integrate with Visual Studio Team Services, you must install Microsoft Test Manager 2015, Test Agent and Test Controller 2013 Update 5. (Learn more.)
  • To integrate with on-premise Team Foundation Server (as opposed to cloud-based TFS), you must install the supported versions of Visual Studio, which includes Team Foundation Server, Microsoft Test Manager, Test Agent, and Test Controller. (Learn more.)

HP Quality Center integration

  • Interoperability between TestArchitect and HP Quality Center requires that the HP Quality Center Connectivity Add-In be installed on your computer (Learn more). You can download the add-in from HP Quality Center

Zephyr integration

  • To execute TestArchitect test cases or test modules from Zephyr, a Zephyr Bot (ZBot) agent is required. (Learn more.)
