Performing Compatibility, Best Practices, and Risk Assessment Testing

AdminStudio 2021 | 21.0 | Application Manager

On the Application Catalog Analyze tab, you perform compatibility, best practices, and risk assessment testing of selected packages simultaneously using the Execute Tests button in the ribbon.

You can test a group of packages (and all of its subgroups), a single application, or a single package. Tests are run on packages of all deployment types simultaneously, including Windows Installer packages, Apple iOS and Google Android mobile apps, App-V packages, and web applications.

Note:You can also perform dynamic testing of web applications. See Performing Dynamic Testing of Web Applications.

When you click the Execute Tests button, Application Catalog runs all of the selected tests in the following test categories:

Application Virtualization Compatibility Tests
Best Practices Tests
Risk Assessment Tests
Operating System Compatibility Tests
Browser Compatibility Tests
Remote Application Publishing Compatibility Tests

Note:The Application Virtualization Compatibility tests are always run any time that you run tests in Analyze. However, you can choose which virtual formats to display in test results. For more information, see Choosing the Virtual Formats to Display in Test Results.

Note:By default, all of the selected tests on packages are run immediately after import. To disable this feature, you need to clear the selection of the Automatically Execute Tests After Import option on the Import Options tab of the Application Catalog Options dialog box.

To test a package or group of packages for compatibility, best practices, and risk assessment, perform the following steps.

To perform compatibility, best practices, and risk assessment testing:

1. Configure the tests that you want to run by performing the steps in Configuring Testing Options on the Analyze Tab.
2. Open the Analyze tab of Application Manager.
3. Specify the packages you want to test by selecting a group, application, or package in the tree.

Note:If you select the root group (which is, by default, named Applications), all of the Windows Installer packages, App-V packages, Apple iOS mobile apps, Google Android mobile apps, and web applications in the Application Catalog will be tested.

Note:The Application Virtualization Compatibility Tests are not executed on App-V packages, Apple iOS mobile apps, or Google Android mobile apps even if they are selected; these tests are not applicable to App-V packages or mobile apps.

Note:The Browser Compatibility Tests are only executed on web applications.

4. Click Execute Tests in the ribbon. Testing is initiated and messages are displayed in the Output window. When testing is finished, Completed testing package(s) is displayed in the Output window.
