What is a Job vs. a Run?

What is a Job vs. a Run?

Jobs are groupings of test scripts. Each job will have multiple run IDs (for each time a job is executed). Jobs can be grouped based on:

  • Priority (e.g. if you  note your tests as P0, P1, etc)
  • Component (e.g. “Registration Form”, “Checkout”)
  • Feature, or grouping of components

Typically, the Automation Team Lead will define these groupings for you based on your specific app and best practices, unless you already know how you want them grouped.
