'''openQA''' is an automated test tool for operating systems and application stacks using virtual as well as physical machines simulating user interactions..<ref>{{citation |url= |title=official homepage of openQA |publisher=openQA development team |date=2022-11-18 |access-date=2022-11-18}}</ref>. openQA was first developed by the openSUSE community as an integral part of the '''factory-tested''' Linux distribution in 2010. <ref>{{citation |url= |title=Announcing factory-tested |publisher=openSUSE community |date=2010-11-29 |access-date=2022-11-18}}</ref>.

== Known uses of openQA ==

openQA is used for the openSUSE Linux distribution as well as within SUSE to develop multiple products <ref>{{citation |url= |title=description of uses at SUSE |publisher=openQA development team |date=2022-11-18 |access-date=2022-11-18}}</ref>. 
Other GNU/Linux distributions like Fedora <ref>{{citation |url= |title=Fedora openQA instance |publisher=Fedora Linux distribution |date=2022-11-18 |access-date=2022-11-18}}</ref>, Debian <ref>{{citation |url= |title=Debian openQA instance |publisher=Debian Linux distribution |date=2022-11-18 |access-date=2022-11-18}}</ref>, <ref>{{citation |url= |title=use of openQA at Debian |publisher=Debian |date=2018-09-09 |access-date=2022-11-18}}</ref>, Qubes OS<ref>{{citation |url= |title=Qubes OS openQA instance |publisher=Qubes OS distribution |date=2022-11-18 |access-date=2022-11-18}}</ref>, (not reachable at current time), the GNOME project <ref>{{citation |url= |title=GNOME openQA instance |publisher=the GNOME project |date=2022-11-18 |access-date=2022-11-18}}</ref> use it. openQA is also used for system integration purposes, e.g. automated kernel testing by Codethink<ref>{{citation |url= |title=TL;DR - LAVA + openQA = automated, continuous kernel testing |publisher=Codethink |date=2021-09-21 |access-date=2022-11-18}}</ref> and EuroLinux<ref>{{citation |url= |title=openQA testing for EuroLinux |publisher=eurolinux |date=2022-03-17 |access-date=2022-11-18}}</ref>.

openQA is shipped as part of multiple Linux distribution for direct installation, e.g. openSUSE<ref>{{citation |url= |title=openQA package for openSUSE |publisher=openSUSE |date=2022-11-18 |access-date=2022-11-18}}</ref>, Fedora<ref>{{citation |url= |title=openQA package for Fedora |publisher=Fedora |date=2022-11-18 |access-date=2022-11-18}}</ref>, <ref>{{citation |url= |title=openQA installation instructions for Fedora |publisher=Fedora |date=2022-06-08 |access-date=2022-11-18}}</ref>, Debian<ref>{{citation |url= |title=openQA package for Debian |publisher=Debian |date=2022-11-18 |access-date=2022-11-18}}</ref>

[[GNU Health|GNU_Health]] uses openQA tests for its system verification during development.
