pyATS Robot: Robot Module
pyATS is an end-to-end testing ecosystem, specializing in data-driven and reusable testing, and engineered to be suitable for Agile, rapid development iterations. Extensible by design, pyATS enables developers start with small, simple and linear test cases, and scale towards large, complex and asynchronous test suites.
pyATS is initially developed internally in Cisco, and is now available to the general public starting late 2017 through Cisco DevNet. Visit the pyATS home page at
