How to manage large amount of tests with Agilitest

Agilitest has been specially designed to manage large amount of tests:

  • The ATS scripts it generates are in text format, readable, transferable and manageable in configuration management tools.
  • They are stored in directories which can be local or shared and on which the operating system tools are operative (searches, replacements ...).
  • A test corresponds to an ATS script and you have no additional binaries, (obviously unless you use the graphic recognition).
  • You can use sub-scripts and share them between scripts.

Thus, it is not uncommon to see some of our customers maintain more than 1000 tests as part of a test project.

There are several possible actions that can be taken to get there:

  • Act on test management
  • Act on the granularity of the tests
  • Act on test data
  • Act on test execution environments

Test management

With Agilitest you have three possibilities to manage your tests:

Flat management

All your "root" tests are in a single directory and you can use naming rules to identify them and identify the different functional areas they cover. It's not so easy when you have a lot of tests, but this solution enables you to see all of your tests at a glance. Remember that each test can be represented by a single file in the base directory, and that you can then put the sub-scripts in dedicated sub-directories.

A simple example to do a test on roles or on a workflow, you can rename your test by using , , , .
