In a world where development teams are spread out or there is a need to work from home, testing connected device software and hardware is difficult without the right tools. In order to make sure your team stays on task, efficiently qualifying each version of your products, CDRouter’s automation and user interface works seamlessly whether you are in the office or over a VPN. Plus there’s some key features that allow testers, developers, and project managers, to continue their work and collaborate with everyone involved.
Our employees use CDRouter every day. Here’s some of their tips to help use CDRouter to its fullest while working remotely.
Whether communicating via email, chat, or collaboration tools like Slack or Discord, linking directly to the information you are sharing is always easier than passing along large files. Further, being able to provide immediate context during your workflow saves a lot of time when you must explain things through text.
When remote working, use CDRouter’s interface to directly link to:
Most of the time you need access to the GUI of a device under test to change settings, check data, or restore it to a specific state. CDRouter’s “Devices” tab lets you interact with the device’s GUI through your CDRouter web interface, rather than needing a second physical connection to your device under test.
Connecting to a device GUI within CDRouter
If you need to physically restart a device, CDRouter can interact with a remote controlled power supply during test runs. The support team goes into detail on how to set this up in this user guide.
Ultimately, it’s automation that will help you get the most done when your team is distributed or working remotely. Have CDRouter set up to run testing as often as you can, letting workers in different time zones check in on results and start new packages.
In addition, use CDRouter’s web API to integrate with your other remote working tools, including software test and management systems like Jenkins or Bamboo. Joe goes into detail on the CDRouter API with some key examples in this webinar.
