Different actions can be taken on a selected package through the context menu or via the actions displayed on the Ribbon. You can test a package by deploying it in the test environment. This action opens a wizard that helps you to select a test environment and specify the testing options. Each package is linked to the project from which it was created, allowing you to open the project, make necessary modifications, and generate a new package.

For a selected package, you can use the context menu or the Ribbon to reveal the package file in Windows Explorer. Be aware that package files might be moved or deleted in the file system. Consequently, the program provides a feature to scan the package list for any missing package files, giving you the option to remove entries for which the files cannot be found.

On the right side of the Packages view, the primary properties of the selected package are displayed, along with options to perform various operations, such as testing the package. The Actions History list chronicles all operations executed on the package. Should package testing be conducted, this is where you can review the test results, complete with a link to detailed test results.
