PractiTest, the SaaS-based Test Management Solution, announced support for automated testing on the PractiTest platform. From today, PractiTest users can organize and execute their manual and automated testing scripts seamlessly within one centralized platform, enabling unified management and reporting of all tests.
The new PractiTest functionality provides managers and testers an overall view of both automated and manual testing, increasing visibility of the automation efforts and eliminating communication and coordination problems between automated and manual testing projects.
According to Yaniv Iny, Co-Founder of PractiTest, the new functionality is the result of customer demand: "We published posts in our QABlog asking testers about the challenges in coordinating their automated and manual tests. Based on their input we developed the xBot Automation Agent and the automation API."
The xBot Automation Agent is a Java utility that runs on every operating system (including Windows, Mac and Linux) and can execute scripts written on all testing tools and all languages.
Users can manage their automated testing through PractiTest, by following a few easy steps:
1. Map the automation scripts to tests in the PractiTest Test Library (which is done quickly and easily).
2. Create a Test Set on PractiTest with the automation scripts and schedule a time to start running the test.
3. That’s it!
At the selected time, the PractiTest xBot agent executes the scripts automatically. Upon completion of the test the xBot agent uploads the results to PractiTest as part of the test execution log.
