In order to execute TestArchitect test cases or test
modules from Zephyr, a Zephyr Bot (ZBot) agent is required to form the link between the
Zephyr server and the TestArchitect Client on your machine.
Additionally, a custom TestArchitect ZIP project must be
deployed on the TestArchitect Client machine.
Integration between TestArchitect and
Zephyr has been deprecated since TestArchitect
version 8.3 Update 2
Note: At present, TestArchitect-Zephyr integration supports versions 4.5 and 4.6 of
To install a ZBot agent and deploy a custom TestArchitect ZIP project, carry out the following
Install ZBot by following these directions:
The installation setup file and detailed install instructions can be found at

OK to install the plug-in.
If one does not already exist, TestArchitect
automatically creates a folder named plugin. This folder
stores the plug-in and configurations needed to form a link between the Zephyr
server and your TestArchitect Client.
Start the ZBot service manually:
Go to ZBOT_HOME_DIR\bin and double-click the
Zbot.bat batch file.
A command line window appears indicating that ZBot started
Remember: Leave the command line window open on your
machine; otherwise, the ZBot process is terminated.
- Prior to running automated tests from
Zephyr, it is required that you repeat step

- It is also recommended that on Windows you do not start ZBot through the
standard Windows Services application. Otherwise, ZBot may not be launched
