Before you can record activity or scan objects, you must select the existing Test Modeller workspace in which any captured information will be saved.

The Projects and Workspace Panel opens immediately after you log in: 

A workspace is the communal file manager for storing and sharing files in Test Modeller. Your user credentials should automatically be associated with a workspace for your team or organisation.

A workspace contains projects in which models and any associated test artefacts are stored. A project can be segmented by release, associating test activity with specific project iterations.

A project without any associated releases, or a release associated with a given project are equivalent to a “context”. In Test Modeller, a context determines the models and data being worked with, allowing you to easily switch between the projects and releases you are editing.

Selecting or creating a project and/or release in the VIP Test Modeller Explorer determines the context into which any recorded or scanned activity will be accessible in  Test Modeller.

It can be easier to first pre-configure projects and releases in the Test Modeller Workspace, before then selecting the required project and release from the Test Modeller Explorer. Separate Knowledge Base articles explain how to create a new project and divide it into releases, and navigating contexts.

Alternatively, new projects and releases can be created in the Test Modeller Explorer itself. Simply click the plus icon next to the project or version field, type a name for the project or release, and click “create”:

Any projects and releases created in the Test Modeller Explorer will be reflected in existing workspaces in Test Modeller. Recorded or captured activity and objects will be stored in the newly created project or release, from which it can be analysed in Test Modeller, and overlaid onto models stored in the same workspace.

The workspace, project, and release can be changed by selecting the cog in the main panel of the Test Modeller Explorer:
