Above: This diagram provides a high-level overview of how each architecture layer should be configured.
The application layer consists of two major elements:
A workstation running on macOS or Windows with a full Provar installation. We recommend that you always use the latest version of Provar, especially when running your test cases via continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD).
A version control system (VCS) setup to contain your Provar test project(s). This can be Git, SVN, TFS, etc.
Note: To learn more about integrating Provar with your version control system of choice, please refer to Version Control and Devops.
Once you have made your initial check-in to your VCS, the next phase is implementing the environment layer.
The environment layer consists of two major elements:
A full package installation of Copado in your Salesforce org.
A Jenkins server accessible from the internet.
Note: The installation of Copado will not be covered in this guide and must be managed/supported by your Copado representative/consultant.
Once you have this package installed and correct access has been provisioned, you must also setup your Jenkins server to be publicly accessible from the internet. That configuration will be covered in a later section.
The platform layer consists of two major elements:
Your Salesforce org.
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance or Azure Virtual Machine (VM).
This guide will be configuring the integration using an Amazon EC2 instance.
Setup for the Azure VM would be similar. More documentation can be found here.
These instances should have at least 8 GB RAM, 50 GB of storage space, and a high-speed internet connection.
Note: In both cases we recommend that you use a Linux distribution as your base since these are generally more secure and have better performance.
