The accelQ application UI has been divided into 4 different sections:
1. Side Navigation Bar
2. Tabs Area
3. Global Toolbar Area
4. Help Center
Side Navigation bar
The side Navigation bar groups the application into logical sections, and make it easy for the user to navigate from one section to another easily and effectively. The Navigation bar consists of Universe, Navigator, Resources, Results, User account, and Settings.
The accelQ application is architected and designed to open multiple test assets simultaneously. We understand that working to get the best test scenarios defined will need you to work and refer to multiple test assets at any given time, and having the ability to open these assets in a tab helps in navigating between them easily.
There is 2 kind of tabs in the accelQ Application, the first tab is a fixed tab and cannot be removed, the content of this fixed tab depends on the section you are in, for example when you click on the Navigator section from the sidebar the fixed tab will show the Navigator grid.
The other tabs that get opened when you click on the asset name can be closed if needed, in general depending on your screen resolution and size you should be able to see 5-6 tabs on the tab area, the overflowing tabs goes under the tabs list which can be accessed from the rectangular icon next to the last tab.
Global Toolbar area
The global toolbar area consists of actions which can be needed at any point of time and should have easy access no matter where you are in the application. The toolbar consists of Global Search, New Entity creation, Activity Log, and Run button.
- Global Search
Global Search is an extremely powerful feature in the accelQ application which helps you to quickly jump to your desired asset. You can search for any test asset, and to make the finding easier the search result drop down is categorized as per the asset type.
- New Entity
New asset creation is just a click away, no matter where you are in the application, click on the New Entity icon and select the asset type you would like to create.
- Activity Log
The activity log is an extremely powerful and beneficial tool for you to keep a track of all the changes and modifications happening to the test assets. It shows all the activities that have happened grouped by dates.
A global Run Button enables you to execute a Scenario or a Test Suite. You can also schedule a CI job or schedule a Run from here.
This is the area where most of the work will happen and depending on which section in the application and/or asset tab you are in the work area will change accordingly.
accelQ application has a floating Help Center in the right-bottom corner. The help center is context-aware and will show you the help articles based on which location/ section/ asset you are currently viewing. Help Center is much more than just a repository of help articles, you will find a lot of very interesting contents under the help center.
- Search a help article
To search for a help article just type the keywords on the search box on the top of the help center (orange band).
