Testkube allows you to automate running tests and test suites by defining triggers on certain events for various Kubernetes resources.

What is a Testkube Test Trigger?

In generic terms, a Trigger defines an action which will be executed for a given execution when a certain event on a specific resource occurs. For example, we could define a TestTrigger which runs a Test when a ConfigMap gets modified.

Watch our video guide on using Testkube Test Triggers to perform Asynchronous Testing in Kubernetes.
