Install & Register Using iOS 8 or Above

 

The TouchTest™ Agent is responsible for launching the apps that are being tested on a given device. It is a web application that is runs in mobile Safari on iOS devices. To get started, browse to the TouchTest Agent URL below on the mobile device and then perform the one-time registration steps that will enable your device for use with TouchTest.

 

  1. Go to Central tab > Resources. Under Downloads, click on TouchTest Agent iOS Project and build the project with Xcode. 

 

  1. Log in using your SOASTA User Name and Password.

 

  1. When prompted, give the TouchTest Agent a name. For example Tester iPad. This name will be used throughout the product to refer to this device. Once entered, an Administrator is the only one who can change the device name.
  1. The status on the device will change to Connected. If it is not Connected, refresh the page, and ensure that you are logged in.

 

Install & Register Using iOS 7 or Below

 

  1. On the mobile device, enter the CloudTest URL with “/touchtest” appended. The complete URL form for TouchTest is http:///concerto/touchtest/. If the device is not registered, it will prompt you to do so.
  1. Log in using your SOASTA CloudTest User Name and Password. The Unique Device Identifier (UDID) will be used to register the mobile device for use with TouchTest™ in iOS7 or after; for earlier iOS versions, the registration will also use a profile.
  1. Click the Register Device button to continue (only applies to iOS 7 and earlier).
  • The Install Profile screen appears. Click the Install button to proceed.
  • The Install Profile alert appears to indicate that mobile device settings will be changed. Click Install Now to proceed.
  • If a passcode is in effect on the mobile device, an additional prompt will appear for you to authorize the profile installation.

 

  1. When prompted, give the TouchTest Agent a name. For example Tester iPad. This name will be used throughout the product to refer to this device. Once entered, an Administrator is the only one who can change the device name.
  1. The status on the device will change to Connected. If it is not Connected, refresh the page, and ensure that you are logged in.

Note: If you clear your cookies on the given mobile device after registration, you may need to register your device again so TouchTest can recognize it. This does not consume an additional license. 

 

If you're using a Simulator prior to iOS 7, use the "Tap here if this is a simulator" link to proceed. This link will appear below the Login button in all configurations that require it. This link doesn't appear in iOS 7 or after.

 

Associating Mobile Apps with a Device

 

Once a device is approved, use the following steps to assign one or more mobile apps to that device.

 

  1. In Central > Device Clouds, select the mobile device.

  1. In the lower panel, click the Mobile Apps tab. If necessary, use the Maximize button to increase the workspace.

  1. Locate and check the Mobile App(s) that you want to authorize this device to access. For example, Stockfish.
  1. Click Save on the lower panel toolbar.
