Step 1: Log in to your TestGrid account.
- After logging into the TestGrid Platform with valid credentials, go to the real device cloud on the left side of the screen.
- After clicking on the Real Device Cloud, you will see all devices allocated to that user. Next, click on reserved devices at the top of the page.
Step 2: This is the device reservation tab as “Reserve” will be shown under each device that is assigned to the user.
Step 3: Once clicked on the reserve tab, this form will appear to reserve the device for the duration that the user requires.
Step 4: Fill up the details accordingly.
- Once you fill in the appropriate details in the required field, then click on the reserve button.
Step 5: A pop-up with the device reservation added will display at the top, as shown in the figure below.
Step 6: Once a device is reserved, an email will be sent to all other users informing them that the device has been added to their account as well.
Step 7: Once the device is reserved, select Reserved devices at the top of the screen to view the list of reserved devices.
Step 8: When 15 minutes remain in their reservation period bucket, the user will be given the choice to Extend and Release.
Step 9: Extend is used when the user requires additional time to complete the test cases. The release function removes the device from the reserved list.
Note: Admin can revoke or assign any other user to the same device. This can be explored fully in the Admin Dashboard.
