Running a suite at specific intervals

Frontend Robot can be very useful also as a monitoring system. You can choose to run a test suite at specific intervals to verify that your application is running as it should.

The usual pattern is to monitor a production system using a test suite with a few meaningful tests. While running larger suites on a staging/test environment after each new deploy by integrating webhooks with your build system.

Creating a run schedule

To create a run schedule, click on the alarm button at the top-right corner of a test suite to open the run schedule dialog:

Open run schedule dialog
Open run schedule dialog

Alternatively, if the test suite has some environments, you can access the same dialog from the environment’s contextual menu:

Open run schedule dialog
Open run schedule dialog

To select a schedule you first need to check the checkbox saying Automatically run this test environment at a specific interval. Once done, you will have the option to select the schedule for your test suite as shown in the screenshot below:

Select schedule
Select schedule

Once you are happy with the schedule, click Save to enable the automatic execution of the selected test suite at the schedule you specified.
