"Automate On.. Get a lot done in few simple steps"


What do you like about Automaton?

UI - Simplicity of the application around the way how the creators have designed the application to be

Data driven testing - helps in testing with various data sets by creating test case only once

Full flow capture : Entire user journey flow can be captured with single testcase with the help of conditional branching which is quite useful even to explain a single use case at a high level.

- Mapping values could be improved to provide a better UX and simplify it even more if it's possible.
- Some times processing data before it can be mapped to next element requires multiple intermediate steps which is bit of a burden

During crucial deliveries, when you are required to test complicated flows of your web Applications this is a life saver. This tool will reduce your manual efforts considerably.

"Automaton to save time"


What do you like about Automaton?

AUTOMATON, an automation solution gave me a flexibility to automate the manual tasks. It is also a tool that can be easily integrated with a continuous delivery model. Since Automaton is API enabled, I could easily integrate this with my CD framework.

Application testing.. we all know the high importance of this phase in a product development rght.. This quality check process on a product involves a lot of testing in various aspects., like the APIs, DB, functionality, security, .... Come on there are many things to test in a product. Automaton provides an easily to use, user friendly, script-free testing automation solution. And it also gives a detailed test report wherein I can see how many steps have been tested successfully and how many have failed. Go straight to the place where it failed and fix the things. Easy.. Isn't it? That's what even I felt for the first time.

The best part is script-free process automation. Yes.. you don't need to know scripting or coding (Yayyy!!!) Go to dashboard create a test case with widgets, provide inputs based on what you need to test. Of course you can define the test execution flow. Done.. Use, reuse and reuse as many times as you need, wherever you need and with whatever test data.

And being involved in application deployment and management operations, I personally feel Automaton would be a best fit to automate regular log testing. Sit back and review the reports.. And, apart from being involved in system integration activities, I also work on enabling products for SaaS delivery model. Automaton easily did fit there too.

So, yeah.. If you are looking for a good automation tool, go with Automaton. Take a trial and see for yourself. Trust me, you would love it.

Happy automating :) :)

What do you dislike about Automaton?

Even though there are lot of market tools for automating the manual tasks, I still feel Automaton helps me in a great way.

Integrated Support portal would add more advantage
The development team will be happy to accept the test department using Automaton as a solution, provided it doesn’t create any extra work for them. So add more feature to accomodate this capabilities.
A single consolidated report that provides insights into the current status of the release, cycle, test runs, and defects, is so desirable
Expect a solutions to seamlessly integrate with commercial and open-source Defect Tracking systems, ALMs and automation tools. With that to the flexibility, traceability, usability, and transparency we spoke about in the first article and you will have the ultimate Test Management tool

"Automaton: One stop solution for Test Automation"


What do you like about Automaton?

All these while I have been using multiple applications for different testing activities involved. However Automaton has been a game changer in this aspect where I don't have to juggle between multiple applications for different activities. Its an one stop application for all those testing deliverables be it test case preparation, setting up and managing test repositories, execution, reporting and analysis. Every testing phase always involves some sort of manual test if not entirely and maintaining the large volume of piling regression suites has been hassle less in case of Automaton. Also we can consolidate and perform the different testing required to be performed like API testing, Integration testing etc.

What do you dislike about Automaton?

I have been using it for around 7 months and i have not come across any such issues. Even if we get any THIS team is always ready to resolve it at the earliest and provide end to end support.

Nothing specific as such there are some suggestions provided and the team is working on the same

What have you been using it for and what problems did Automaton solve?

• With over 2,000 manual test cases which include front end, API and integration testing, the quality assurance process for the Repopro application was quickly becoming very challenging to maintain
• Out of which Regression test cases are identified based on each release specific areas. For each release, regression suite comprises of approx. 300 to 500 Test cases
• The application was constantly growing (more features were added) and we had to find a way to reduce testing times. increase the amount of test cases and improve the system quality overall without introducing more additional testing time
• Manual execution of release specific testing along with Regression testing is very time consuming.
• To add to this, not to mention the human error in terms of understanding the steps and execution the test suites.
