Detailed Description

Starts a new test task based on a set of criteria provided via parameters or piped input and either waits for the tests to run or returns immediately depending on how it is called. When running a test suite and providing a target object for that suite, the service will discover related objects by default, but this behavior may be disabled if desired.

Parameters

Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
TestId Test identifiers. If specified, do not specify -TestSuiteId. true false Empty
TestSuiteId Test suite identifiers. If specified, do not specify -TestId. true false Empty
InputObject One or more test targets defining the task, see Input Types for details about what kind of objects are permissible. Any valid object passed to this parameter may also be piped into this cmdlet. true true (ByValue) Empty
TargetIdType Describes the type of corresponding object passed with -TargetId false false Empty
TargetId The Ids that object tests or tests suites will target. By default, other components are queried for objects related to these. false false Empty
CultureName The culture name in which to produce results. The culture name is in standard language/region-code format; for example "en-US". false false The current user interface culture
IgnoreRelatedObjects Do not ask other components for objects related to a specified target. false false False
RunAsynchronously Do not wait for the test run to complete, return immediately. false false False
ExcludeNotRunTests If set, tests that are not run because no object matching their requirements is found are NOT included in test counts and results. false false False (include Not Run tests)
BearerToken Specifies the bearer token assigned to the calling user false false
TraceParent Specifies the trace parent assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use false false
TraceState Specifies the trace state assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use false false
VirtualSiteId Specifies the virtual site the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. false false
AdminAddress Specifies the address of a XenDesktop controller the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. You can provide this as a host name or an IP address. false false Localhost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value becomes the default.

Input Type

Citrix.Envtest.Sdk.Envtestdiscoverytargetdefinition

A single EnvTestDiscoveryTargetDefinition can be specified to target one test or test suite.

Citrix.Envtest.Sdk.Envtestdiscoverytargetdefinition[]

An array of EnvTestDiscoveryTargetDefinition(s) can be specified to target any combination of tests and/or test suites.

Pscustomobject

A single PSCustomObject with properties matching the required EnvTestDiscoveryTargetDefinition properties can be specified to target one test or test suite.

Pscustomobject[]

An array of PSCustomObject(s) with properties matching the required EnvTestDiscoveryTargetDefinition properties can be specified to target any combination of tests and/or test suites.

Return Values

Ctrix.Envtest.Sdk.Envtesttask

The newly started task.

Example 7

$singleSimpleTestSuiteTaskTarget = New-EnvTestDiscoveryTargetDefinition -TestSuiteId Infrastructure

          $singleTestSuiteTaskTarget = New-EnvTestDiscoveryTargetDefinition -TestSuiteId Catalog -TargetIdType Catalog -TargetId $(Get-BrokerCatalog).Uuid

          $inputObjects = @($singleSimpleTestSuiteTaskTarget, $singleTestSuiteTaskTarget)

          Start-EnvTestTask -InputObject $inputObjects

Description
