Access Mendix model

To access Mendix projects, the user who logs in to MTA must be linked to a Mendix user. First time you login as a Test Automator, you will be provided a page where you can enter the necessary information to create this link.

API key and PAT

An API key and PAT need to be created to make communication possible with MTA and the Mendix platform.
Make sure to store both in a password manager after creation.

API key

Navigate to API keys (links to Mendix site) to create an API key for your Mendix profile.
Mendix documentation is here:

PAT (Personal Access Token)

Navigate to to add a PAT. When adding, provide a name, and select only this scope: mx:modelrepository:repo:read.
Mendix documentation is here:

Enter API key and PAT in MTA

Login to MTA using the credentials provided by your MTA Manager.

The following popup will appear:

Now fill in the fields under 'Mendix credentials'

  • The Mendix account username (the email address you registered with);
  • API Key and PAT;

Then choose "Save".

If you need to change this information later, click the user icon on the top right.

To test if this step was successful, try to Add an Application. The Mendix projects associated with the given Mendix user should be visible.
