Named Server Management
This lesson will show how to view and manage Named Servers within GenRocket for your Organization. Only Organization Admins can add a new Named Server to the GenRocket Web platform.
What is a Named Server?
Often Software Testers have requirements to install GenRocket Runtime on a Testing Automation Server so that it can run Test Data Generation Scenarios. We call this type of server a Named Server.
Any Named Server that is executing GenRocket Scenarios, to generate synthetic test data, needs to be registered in the GenRocket system. When software tests are run on an automation server and call GenRocket Scenarios to generate synthetic test data, a license check is made to validate the Named Server.
We use the term, Named Server, because Test Automation Servers are sometimes changed; so, the named server can be reassigned to a new Test Automation Server.
How do you set up and use Named Servers in GenRocket?
- Add a Named Server to your Organization
- Assign a valid License to the Named Server
- Download the Server Profile to the Server
After a Server has been added and assigned a valid License, it becomes a Named Server. Then, an Organization Admin can download the Server Profile so that the Server may be used to execute GenRocket Scenarios.
How to Access and Manage Named Servers
The My Organization Dashboard can be accessed by performing the following steps within the web platform:
