Phases/Components of EzTest

  • Identify Test Cases feasible for Automation

The very first step to start with Automation is to do a feasibility study to figure out test cases that can be automated or are worth automating. In this phase, automation framework requirements are identified which will be customized as required in EzTest automation solution. This phase will have tasks of test cases Walkthrough and Study, Grouping of Test Cases Functional Area wise and test case prioritization.

  • Common Actions / Keywords

Based on test cases scrubbing activity in this phase, all the keywords are identified with test data for test cases which are going to be automated. This will helpful to identify number of keywords/actions required in automation and remove chances of duplicate keywords creation. EzTest allows to start creating keywords/actions in this phase from User interface with flow of test case.

  • Object Repository

EzTest automation solution uses page object model based on which all the page wise objects/elements are defined. EzTest allows to add/edit object from User interface for test case and also it allows to modify from backend automation script.

  • Automate Test Cases

EzTest has feature to add/edit/delete test script with hybrid automation. This automation test script/test case can be grouped by tagging and test suite. One test case can have multiple tags and multiple test suites also. EzTest test script will have flow of manual test cases which can be isolated into multiple blocks. Also we can create dependency of block to another one or multiple blocks so test cases will be skipped in case dependency block/flow is failing in execution.

  • Test Data Setup

All the test data is maintained in excel sheets and columns. EzTest allows us to select excel file for specific flow of automation script or full automation script. In the same automation test cases, it allows to select multiple test data sets for different blocks. It is convenient for user to modify excel test data and backend data driven automation script will be created.

  • Execute Automation

EzTest allows to run automation by selecting test script, test suite and tag wise filter. Also EzTest will save all the previous execution records which will help to compare previous execution results with current build execution. EzTest has feature to save execution set so next time onwards, automation can be directly triggered for selected test scripts/suites/tags. EzTest has integration with DevOps which will setup/configure test environment at initially and then perform execution with Continuous Integration.

  • Test Results – Dashboard

EzTest provides graphical results of automation execution and also we can customized the reports by selecting different filter criteria. EzTest will generate detailed log results which will provide status of execution step wise of automation script. EzTest provide mechanism to save execution results in HTML format and also send email once execution completed with status of executed test scripts.
