Accessing HCL OneTest Server from the desktop clients

Desktop clients use offline user tokens to connect to HCL OneTest™ Server.

You can configure the desktop clients to access HCL OneTest Server by using the offline user tokens created from the server.

Offline user tokens are used in the following cases:
  • To retrieve secrets configured on the server to be used in certain tests in HCL OneTest API.
  • To enable publishing of test results and reports from desktop clients to HCL OneTest Server.
  • To enable the Resource Monitoring Service in HCL OneTest Performance to monitor a data source during a run on HCL OneTest Server.
