Selenium and test automation within Plutora Test
In fast-paced iterative development environments, test teams have had to adapt to increased delivery velocity and a greater number of changes per release. Growing adoption of test automation has improved productivity, and Selenium test automation for web applications has become the de facto standard for testers worldwide. Supported by all new browsers, Selenium is a powerful tool used to create automated test scripts in almost any language.
Plutora Test integrates with Selenium to bring enterprise management, control, and reporting to test processes. Easily import and execute automated Selenium tests along with manual tests. Plutora Test maintains traceability between user stories, related test cases, and known defects to provide stakeholders valuable insight into validation efforts across all projects.
- Import, execute, and manage Selenium scripts
- Coordinate manual and automated tests from a single interface
- Ensure proper test coverage of user stories
- Auto-sync defect tracking with test management
- Establish traceability between test cases, defects, and requirements
- Efficiently re-use scripts across test plans and projects
Visibility for test automation using Selenium Integration
Import and run Selenium scripts
Plutora Test integrates with Selenium to quickly import libraries of test automation scripts. Associate tests with user stories and assign to a test case, then build out a timeline for completion or pull in dates from an existing project. Tests execute in your Selenium environment and are scheduled to run individually or in parallel.
Coordinate manual and automated tests from a single interface
Automation doesn’t eliminate the need for manual testing, and test plans often include a mix of manual and automated tests. Plutora Test runs both manual and Selenium automated tests so there’s no need to jump in and out of multiple tools. The test plan progress report summarizes status and allows drill down for further analysis.
Ensure proper test coverage of user stories
Intuitive charts in Plutora Test help business teams and domain experts evaluate test coverage for each user story, and display quality trends to inform risk assessments. Without disrupting dev or test teams, real-time reports summarize test status such as passed, failed, blocked, or descoped.
Comprehensive defect tracking
Defects are tracked within Plutora Test or are optionally pushed to Jira. Fault details map to the test case and user story, and embed a comments stream with relevant artifacts for developer insight and reproduction. Teams automatically receive alerts when defects are raised, with additional navigation that highlights impact to user stories and related test plans.
Establish traceability of test cases and defects back to original requirements
Requirements and user stories are typically broken down into multiple development tasks for execution and testing, making it difficult for business teams to assess project status with Agile development. Plutora Test bridges this communication gap with an interactive traceability matrix that links user stories, related test cases, and known defects.
Efficient script re-use
Selenium scripts can be efficiently re-used across test plans and projects. Test teams can easily add test steps or edit items such as the test file path, test arguments, preconditions, and postconditions. The straight-forward test execution environment means anyone can execute the final automated tests, regardless of technical skillset.
