Docker Runner

Docker Runner is a utility that provides the capability to check and stabilize execution on cloud platforms such as Azure, GitHub Actions, Gitlab etc. which widely use Linux containers to perform tasks. With its easy and simple setup, Docker Runner offers an efficient integration with Docker, by avoiding the complexity associated with its setup.

Note: We are delivering an experimental feature for seeking feedback from customers before general availability while we add additional features to this capability.

Provar’s Customer Success and Innovation team developed this feature with a custom utility (jar). This is a great example of the power of Provar Automation and how you can extend the platform.

Use of ProvarLabs prototypes is not recommended for production test project purposes and may void any warranties. ProvarLabs prototypes should only be used on non-production copies of your Provar Automation projects to test the functionality provided and provide feedback. These prototypes have not completed the beta testing phase and pose a higher-than-normal risk for bugs. We may enhance, withdraw or replace prototype features based on extended testing and feedback gathered. Do not rely on these features as part of your test automation.

Prerequisite: 

  • Docker Desktop should be installed, up & running.
  • Set-up requires system properties to enable the Docker Runner
