for Mobile Marketing Automation Platform
Techstern was commissioned to enhance and refine the functional testing process for a prominent mobile marketing automation platform. The objectives were clear-cut and multifaceted:
- To establish a robust, end-to-end functional testing process tailored to the application.
- To conduct regular testing in accordance with the newly established methodologies, ensuring their ongoing maintenance.
- To develop a Test Automation Framework from the ground up, encompassing both functional and API testing.
- To construct a Regression Test Suite and automate the regression test cases
- To design and refine API Automation Scripts for testing RESTful Endpoints, critical to the application's transactions.
- To execute periodic Load Testing on select requests known to experience high load during operation, post each interval/release.
- The lack of a suitable functional Test Process that could be integrated seamlessly into the agile development cycle.
- The absence of a reusable solution for validating high-priority functionalities with each new application release, regardless of size.
- The non-existence of any functional or API Test Automation Suites.
- The absence of a defined load testing process.
- Development of a Functional Test Suite: This began with meticulous planning, prioritizing, and modularizing test areas by complexity, followed by the creation of detailed test scenarios categorized by different test objectives.
- Test Execution & Reporting: Conducted various test cycles (Smoke, Sanity, Regression) as needed, managed issues within a defect management system, and published detailed reports and deliverables upon completion of each test cycle.
- Routine Upgradation & Maintenance: Continuously enhanced the test suite by updating existing scenarios and incorporating new use cases in tandem with feature development.
- Creation of a Functional Test Automation Suite: Developed a bespoke Test Automation framework, scripting comprehensive end-to-end automation for critical and complex test cases, with ongoing enhancements and maintenance.
- API Test Automation Suite: Constructed an API automation Framework from scratch to validate the RESTful APIs' correctness, functionality, and efficiency.
- CI/CD Integration: Seamlessly integrated both Functional and API test automation scripts into the CI/CD pipeline to ensure the integrity of new and existing application features.
- Load Testing: Initiated and conducted Load testing to assess the performance of specific requests under varied load conditions, compiling comprehensive performance metrics reports.
