Execute Suite

Execute all the tests in a suite and return results. Note that the results will be different depending on the execution circumstances:

  • when using immediate=0 the response will contain a list of test results when executing a single suite, and a list of suite results when executing multiple suites,
  • when using immediate=1 the response will contain a single suite result when executing a single suite, and a list of suite results when executing multiple suites.
Note: We execute tests concurrently, however this request can still take some time to return. In general, it will return in the time that it takes to run your longest test; however, this can vary depending on the load on our system and the number of tests being run. We’d suggest programming your request to deal with response times up to 20 minutes. If all the suite’s tests are not completed within 20 minutes, the API will send a timeout error (although your tests will still be triggered).

Request

Method: GET or POST

URL: https://api.ghostinspector.com/v1/suites/<suiteId>/execute/?apiKey=<apiKey>&startUrl=<startUrl>

Parameters sent as form data or as a JSON body will override parameters sent in the query string.

delay
(Optional) The number of milliseconds to delay execution start, maximum 300000 (5 minutes)
region
(Optional) Geo-location for test execution. The following options are available: us-east-1 (default), us-west-1, ca-central-1 eu-central-1, eu-west-1, eu-west-2, eu-west-3, eu-north-1, me-south-1, ap-east-1, ap-northeast-1, ap-northeast-2, ap-southeast-1, ap-southeast-2, ap-south-1, sa-east-1
