A test run refers to a single, point-in-time run of a test for a mobile application in Xamarin Test Cloud on a collection of devices and the results of that test run. Xamarin Test Cloud provides a Test Run Wizard that will guide you through selecting devices and provide you with a snippet showing the command line to use for submitting your tests.
The only way to create a test run and select devices is by using the Xamarin Test Cloud website. You will need a Xamarin Test Cloud account to create the test run.

The team API key is a sensitive value that should be protected. The device id is a unique value that represents the devices and operating systems used by the test run. It is not a sensitive value, and can be shared with other test runs if desired.
