If TestOps becomes a paid-for service, I will encourage my team of 7 automation engineers, 30 manual testers and 50 developers to cease its use.

Unless I’m very much mistaken, your response to that article is very much mistaken.

It’s about TERMINOLOGY, not pricing.

Hi @Beo, @devalex88 and @Russ_Thomas,

I have question/comment about the TestOps “Test Environment” column in the screenshot below. I think it should be called “Agent”.

I think calling the TestOps Agent “Test Environment” is misleading. I use an Agent to execute tests but it is the Katalon profile that has the application test environment or URL in my case. I can execute any test-run on any agent but ultimately, the “Environment” comes from my profile.

I would argue that the Katalon Profile should have it’s own column; I.E. “Profile”. That way I can execute a test-run on any agent for a specific profile. I can’t imagine anyone testing such that the physical PC (Agent) is the actual application environment or am I misunderstanding the how I should use my TestOps Agent?

Even if I use Docker images, my application under test is another server accessed by URL given at run-time.

Thanks in advance,

Thanks Russ. Please direct me to the community forum post regarding TestOps pricing and features roadmap and I will kindly direct my feedback there.
