Testing processes have been a sore subject for organizations, especially during the product development cycle. In organizations single bug can cause huge loss, that’s why quality assurance testing is important for organizations. Traditionally, manual test approach has been used to provide accurate results, but it is a lengthy and tiring process.
So, to overcome the problems of manual testing, automated testing tools have been developed by IT leaders. With the automated tools, the concept of codeless test automation also comes into existence. There are plenty of different methods for the codeless testing present, but two widely used are;
- Record manual tests and play again
- Create a structured test diagram of tests
The first method is mostly used by organizations and especially used by web-based products as it will record click by click. However, the second approach is a graph-based approach. It is designed to reduce the test cases which eventually helps in reducing the cost. These techniques are not widely used, but that’s not because they aren’t useful.
Benefits of Codeless Test Automation
#1. It is highly Compatible
Codeless Test Automation is crafted with the assistance of graphical UI workflows, and codes are created to make the automation process easy to adapt and implement. The testing process can be started as soon as UI development is accomplished without wasting time and going through complexed codes and frameworks. This process makes it possible to match the speed of the development cycle with continuous integration and testing in agile.
#2. Low Cost and Scale Automation
Automated flows can be tied into reusable parts to use as sub-flows. If any changes are made in sub-flows, then these changes will reflect into all testing use cases modules. It means that it isn’t compulsory to correct the automation flows every time the system under test changes as codeless test automation will automatically handle that part. The automation helps in the fundamental flow of the prevailing business rules.
#3. Expand the Scope of Automation
This type of automation helps in various different applications like web, desktop, virtual applications, etc., Moreover, automates tests can include numerous interfaces all over the applications as part of the project. This flexibility facilities in measuring the level of automation in several applications. It is very useful for the applications in which testing automation is included in between.
#4. Advancement with Codeless Test
This testing can be categorized as the complete automation solution for an organization. With this testing, the level of automation can become the center of excellence. It is the best way of sharing knowledge and practice tricks across project collaborations. This process is completely different from the code based custom frameworks.
#5. Easy Documentation Process
In the codeless testing, the complete visual description of a process and documentation is created on how to execute the process with the decrease testing efforts. The whole process of automated testing is recorded with video and logs using advanced testing tools. Every action and event can be recorded in the audit trail.
So, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that codeless automation testing would be a tool of the future which will boost the performance of automation testers rather than replacing their jobs. In the future, automation tools will be smart enough to operate without script coding and testing instructions. The future is indeed bright for the automation industry.
