Say goodbye to the complexities and limitations of traditional tools, and embrace a testing solution that's user-friendly and efficient.
UiPath Test Suite is a suite of diverse components, each serving a unique purpose. These components include the following.
The way to create automated tests just like you would create RPA workflows with low-code drag-and-drop activities functionality.
Besides running RPA workflows, Orchestrator can execute test cases from Studio on testing robots. This can be accomplished by scheduling or build-driven through a CI/CD pipeline. UiPath testing capability can be accessed from on-premises or cloud Orchestrator (v2020.10 or later).
3. UiPath Test Manager
A web application that seamlessly integrates into your ecosystem and adapts to your way of working, whether you use ServiceNow, SAP Solution Manager, Jira and/or Azure DevOps. A tool that helps you orchestrate your testing activities. It is a paved way to test what really matters with AI-powered capabilities for test discovery. In particular, it covers the following functional areas:
Linking automated test cases in Studio to manual test cases in Test Manager
Assigning test cases to requirements
Reporting and dashboards to get a quick overview of your test results
Creating defects directly from test results
Add documentation to manual test cases with Task Capture
4. Testing Robots
Test Robot is a specialized UiPath robot that's designed to execute automated tests. It can run tests on any machine, and it supports multiple test frameworks, including NUnit, MSTest, and JUnit. With Test Robot, you can automate your testing processes and reduce the time and effort required to test your automation project.
Test Suite provides a comprehensive set of tools and capabilities to support your automation and testing needs. Whether you're looking to automate repetitive tasks, streamline testing processes, or improve overall software development practices.
Adoption of Test Suite offers the following strategic advantages.
Extensibility: Test Suite is a comprehensive solution capable of testing various applications within the ecosystem, providing versatility and adaptability.
Intuitive: UiPath Test Suite is designed to be user-friendly, requiring no additional skills for RPA developers. Whether you are a citizen developer or a professional developer, creating automated tests is as straightforward as developing RPA workflows in Studio, providing a seamless experience for all users.
Scalability and reusability: using test automation frameworks and tools empowers you to generate test scripts and components that are reusable. This scalability and reusability allows for efficient testing efforts, even as the software evolves and expands. Regression testing becomes less time-consuming and resource-intensive.
Efficient test management and reporting: UiPath Test Suite includes UiPath Test Manager, a web-based application that facilitates collaboration within testing teams. Test cases and test suites can be easily created, managed, and executed, with test results gathered in a centralized location. This streamlined process enhances test management and reporting efficiency.
Manual effort: automation of the testing process will free up the time spent regressing testing the standard functionalities due to recent changes or addition of new features.
Improved collaboration and communication: UiPath Test Suite includes UiPath Test Manager, a web-based application that enables teams to collaborate on testing efforts. Teams can easily create, manage, and execute test cases and test suites, and view test results in a centralized location. This improves communication and collaboration between team members, reducing the likelihood of errors and improving overall testing efficiency.
Efficiency gains: automated testing can identify errors more quickly and accurately, reducing the need for manual testing and increasing the speed of the testing process.
You can implement complex continuous integration use cases and delivery practices with ease. Automated tests can be seamlessly integrated into the software development pipeline, allowing for faster feedback on the quality of each code change and facilitating the continuous release of high-quality software.
UiPath Test Suite can be used in a multitude of scenarios and use cases.
Application testing (Desktop/Web/Mobile/Remote Desktop Protocol/API).
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems: applications like SAP, Oracle Fusion, Microsoft Dynamics, workday that combine diverse business processes into a unified platform.
Customer relationship management (CRM): manage interactions with customers, encompassing sales, marketing, and customer support functionalities.
Mobile commerce applications: public interface for product browsing, purchasing, and payment processing.
Accounting software: financial transactions, budgeting, and financial reporting.
Human resource management systems (HRMS): HR tasks such as payroll, employee records management, recruitment, and performance management.
Supply chain management (SCM): enhancing the flow of goods, information, and finances across the supply chain.
Inventory management: tracking and managing inventory.
E-commerce and online shopping platforms: catalog management, transactions, and customer interactions in the online retail space.
RPA testing: performing tests on RPA robots, whether they are newly developed or changes in existing ones.
This capability is valuable to organizations using UiPath for automating their operational life cycles. Moreover, business users can gain significant benefits from an intuitive dashboard view within Test Manager, which enhances the efficiency of continuous and regression testing for robots before they are deployed to higher-level environments.
In a world where automation and testing play a pivotal role, Test Suite is user-friendlly and adaptable for different industries: banking, e-commerce, government, healthcare, or retail. By incorporating Test Suite, you can embrace agile software development practice within your organization, seamlessly integrating test execution into the built processes.
