What are the factors to consider while moving from Manual to Automated Browser Testing?

Hey Ana,

Manual testing helps you to execute a test case step by step. Automating test cases is a time-consuming process and it often fails when the test case is complex. Automated testing helps you to execute test cases faster and more accurately, but you cannot automate all test cases.

If you are willing to make a transition from manual to automation, please consider the following points:

  1. Write fewer and smaller test cases to be moved to automation so that they can be easily managed.
  2. If it helps, you can move more test cases and increase automation test frequency.
  3. Map the test cases and label for easy identification.
  4. Prioritize the automation test cases and focus on new areas manually.
  5. Use analytics to understand better browser behavior.

Hope it helps!

Thanks Shahzebh

Can you also help me with the scenarios where I can consider running automation tests?

Some of the scenarios where you can consider running automation tests include:

  • Repetitive tests for multiple builds.
  • Tests where human errors are involved.
  • Tests where data set is involved.
  • Functions that are frequently used with high risk.
  • Time-consuming tests.
  • Tests involving different hardware and software configurations.
  • Tests that are impossible to automate.
