R2.0 Beta Test Sessions

R2.0 Beta Test Sessions

Each test script is derived from R2.0 use cases and is intended to familiarize the user with functionality as implemented. The test will be performed by a beta test operator, on their own after an introductory Webex session, simulating the steps an OOI Integrated Observatory Network (ION) user would perform._
