Important things to have set up:

- Your test buyer is registered properly (in ASI, AOS, or AuctionMaster), EDGE Pipeline, and Pipeline Admin 

- Your test seller rep is registered properly (in ASI, AOS, or AuctionMaster), EDGE Pipeline, and Pipeline Admin
- Access to the Pipeline Admin site
- The Pipeline/Simulcast Event to test (use can build a specific test event in Admin or use a future real-sale event)
- Turn on the Video/Audio recording devices for the lane(s) you want to test (if you also want to test recording)

1. Log into the Pipeline Admin site from your simulcast clerk PC.


2. Go to Operations > Sale Manager and select the Sale Event date to test from the drop-down.

3. The event lanes will appear. For each Lane you want to test, click the black bars/green arrow icon. This will Build the Lane (send the vehicles to simulcast).


4. Once each Lane you're testing shows that it's built, new icons will appear to setup the lane.  

 

5. Go to the AWG Admin console and sign in, turning on the video and audio transmitters for the Sale Event that has come over from Pipeline. You can tell which sale event it is because the name in AWG will match the name in Admin. Activate and clerk the sale per AWG instructions.  


6. From a different PC or laptop, attend as a buyer. Go to http://www.auctionpipeline.com/OREvents.aspx?ORHack=true. Login, find the auction on the calendar and click Attend, follow the prompts and access the simulcast. The buyer attendee should see video, hear audio, and be able to interact with the clerk for all purchasing functions. (The URL is a version of Pipeline used specifically for simulcast testing, it is not the real site)

 

7. From a different PC or laptop, attend as a seller (NOTE: you can use the same computer to attend as a buyer and a seller but you MUST use a different browser for each Pipeline account used). 

Go to http://www.auctionpipeline.com/OREvents.aspx?ORHack=true. Login, find the auction on the calendar and click Attend, follow the prompts and access the simulcast. The seller attendee should see video, hear audio, and be able to interact with the clerk for all selling functions. 


8. Go through and test each element, whether it be Bidding, Repping, Clerking, printing BOS, If sales, etc to make sure that all aspects work.


9. When testing is complete for a lane, continue on to the next lane and repeat steps 5-9. When you are completely done testing for the day, shut down the AWG console as instructed by AWG. In the Pipeline Admin Sale Manager click the black bars/blue arrow to tear down each lane.
