In this stage the application/service is typically deployed and automated acceptance tests are executed.
This is to make sure that

  • new functionality is tested end-to-end
  • there is no end-to-end regression in existing functionality

Stage Content

This stage comprises following steps which are activated depending on your use-case/configuration:

step step description
cloudFoundryDeploy For Cloud Foundry use-cases: Performs deployment to Cloud Foundry space/org.
gaugeExecuteTests Performs behavior-driven tests using Gauge test framework against the deployed application/service.
healthExecuteCheck Performs health check in order to prove one aspect of operational readiness. In order to be able to respond to health checks from infrastructure components (like load balancers) it is important to provide one unprotected application endpoint which allows a judgement about the health of your application.
kubernetesDeploy For Kubernetes use-cases: Performs deployment to Kubernetes landscape.
multicloudDeploy Can perform both deployments to cloud foundry and neo targets. Preferred over cloudFoundryDeploy and neoDeploy, if configured.
neoDeploy For Neo use-cases: Performs deployment to Neo landscape.
newmanExecute Performs API testing using Newman against the deployed application/service.
npmExecuteEndToEndTests Executes end to end tests by running the npm script 'ci-e2e' defined in the project's package.json file.
testsPublishResults Publishes test results to Jenkins. It will automatically be active in cases tests are executed.
uiVeri5ExecuteTests Performs end-to-end UI testing using UIVeri5 test framework against the deployed application/service.
