export X_TESTFORGE_PROJECT_KEY=<API key>into the «Execute Shell command» field, where
<API key>is the key you copied in step 1.
To change the project's state, use the options in the upper right corner of the page:
Click Start to let the project start receiving autotest build reports.
Click Stop to make the project stop receiving reports.
Optionally – add tags or change the description to indicate the project suspension reason and enable «Delayed start» to automatically Run the project at the selected time.
Click «Archive» to make the project stop receiving reports and stop the project from being displayed on the project screen by default.
Optionally – add labels or change the description to indicate the reason for archiving the project.
You can start only the configured projects for which a build report parser is specified.
To bind the project to a CI, use the selector on the «Bound CIs» tab.
To unbind a project from a CI, click «🗑« next to the CI's name.
