This document describes UI tests that need to be performed before a new release can be accepted.

We assume authenticating to the portal works and the "Home" screen is shown. We also assume no "API client" is configured yet, and 2FA is not enabled yet.


The tests are divided in various categories. They describe only the steps a user can take, some changes in the administrator panel will have effect on the user portal, but are not included here.

#Download a configuration

  1. Go to the "New" tab
  2. Choose a name that does not yet exist and click "Download"
  3. An OVPN file is offered for download, accept that
  4. Verify the contents of the file, does it look like a well formed OpenVPN file?
  5. Does the name appear in the "Configuration" tab as active?

#Try to create a configuration with the same name

  1. Go to the "New" tab
  2. Choose a name that was already used before, and click "Download"
  3. An error page should be shown explaining that a name can only be used once

#Try to create a configuration with an invalid name

  1. Go to the "New" tab
  2. Choose an invalid name, for example containing a ! and click "Download"
  3. An error dialog from the user's browser should appear that the input is invalid
  4. Failing step 4, an (not so nice) error message is displayed saying the name is invalid

#Revoke a configuration

  1. Go to the "Configurations" tab
  2. Click "Revoke" on a configuration
  3. Confirm the revocation
  4. Check if it appears in the "Configuration" tab as revoked?

#Two-factor Authentication


  1. Go to the "Account" tab
  2. Make sure 2FA is marked as enabled
  3. Click "Enable" for 2FA
  4. A new page with QR code is shown and an input box for an OTP
  5. Scan the QR with the "FreeOTP" Android (or iOS) app
  6. Generate a OTP with the created configuration
  7. Enter the OTP and click "Verify"
  8. Check that 2FA is now marked as enabled on the Account page

NOTE: if you are on an OTP instance, you will also need to provide an OTP code when connecting to the VPN.

#Remote App Integration


  1. Go to the "Account" tab
  2. Make sure no Applications are registered to access your account
  3. Use the "VPN Companion" Android app
  4. Enter the domain name of the server you are testing
  5. Watch the browser open, redirecting you to the login page
  6. Perform the login
  7. Confirm the approval dialog
  8. Check that the App successfully downloaded a configuration
  9. Verify that the app is listed under the "Account" tab

Repeat this process, but this time not giving permission in step 7.

#Language Switcher

  1. At any point, on any page the language switcher should work and show you the page in the language of choice [1, 2]

#VPN Testing

  1. Configure a configuration in your OpenVPN client
  2. Connect to the service
  3. Go to the "Configurations" tab
  4. Revoke the configuration that is currently active, and confirm it
  5. Make sure the VPN connection can no longer be used, it will immediately not allow any traffic through and eventually time-out
  6. Make sure you can also not reconnect again
