I have a test framework running on my local (& git) that is based on TestCafe-Cucumber (Node.js) example: https://github.com/rquellh/testcafe-cucumber & it works really well.
Now, I am trying to use this framework in the deployment (post-deployment) cycle by hosting it as a service or creating a docker container.
The framework executes through the CLI command (npm test) with few parameters.
I know the easiest way is to call the git repo directly as & when required by adding a Jenkins step, however, that is not the solution I am looking for.
So far, I have successfully built the docker image & container now runs on my localhost 8085 port as http://0.0.0.0:8085 (although I get DNS server as it’s not an app – please correct me if I am wrong here)
The concern here is: How can I make it work like an app hosted so that once the deployment completes, the Jenkins/Octopus could call it as a service through the URL (http://0.0.0.0:8085) along with few parameters that the framework used to execute the test case?
I request all experts to provide a solution if there are any.
