Automated testing maintenance
Automated tests run on their own, but they need a little help to stay in shape. Proactively address test automation maintenance with initiatives in these two key areas.
Types of automate test maintenance
1) Test automation maintenance methods are divided into two categories: those for when working tests begin to fail and those for tooling adjustments.
2) Automated tests will fail as programmers update the software over time, simply because the code under test has changed. When a test fails, it must be determined whether the failure was due to a change in behavior, an unforeseen side effect, or a genuine software flaw. The team can then decide whether to change the code or update the test, or both.
During a 5-month maintenance period, what can be modified in an application?
Quite a bit. Really. Especially when seen from the perspective of previously developed automated test cases. When I joined one of our initiatives, that’s exactly what happened. I was aware that well-written automated tests were in use, and that they had actual economic benefit. They were trusted by the development team and were included in each and every new release candidate. But, as is often the case with design, a slew of new features appeared, and no one had time to maintain our e2e gem. And as time went on, more and more tests stopped becoming green, until none of them passed at all.
Maintaining a straightforward approach
Deciding what to test before you can decide how to test it
Making a list of your test cases
Using naming standards
Comments that explain why a test is the way it is are an exception, in that they are valuable. A suitable statement in tying a test to a choice made outside the testing is “Product management specified a requirement that this activity must complete within three seconds.” “Calculate the outcome” is almost likely a terrible comment, because it only communicates something that might have been conveyed better in the exam itself.
How Can Developers Support Test Automation Maintenance In An Agile Environment?
The duty of maintaining Selenium test automation tools and scripts up to date is already a load for Selenium test automation teams. As a result, as the number of Selenium automated tests for evaluating specific items grows, the teams may become increasingly overburdened.
The maintenance of test scripts is handled by external teams in a standard waterfall structure. As a result, they free the developers from having to do the same.
An agile framework, on the other hand, reduces the requirement for external teams. A cross-functional team of developers and an agile tester are part of the agile methodology. It is the development team’s duty if a check fails. They can create, run automated browser testing, fix, and retest, in other words, they can go through the entire feedback cycle. The nicest thing is that they don’t have to wait for input from a third-party group.
Agile firms have a shorter feedback cycle than companies with segmented development and testing teams. The agile tester understands what needs to be updated. They’re also familiar with numerous bug fixes and what’s causing the problem. They can also interrogate programmers about a code change that affects the test. So, test results are instantly available. As a result, instead of putting the information in a queue, you can act on it as soon as you get it.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Time spent rewriting or upgrading tests is referred to as test automation maintenance. When the application undergoes a modification that would break existing tests, test maintenance is required. A UI design modification, for example, may shift the button that a test clicks, causing the test to fail, even if the functionality remains unchanged.
Maintenance of test automation is unavoidable. Here are four tips to help you save time and money while ensuring that your software testing is as efficient as possible.
- Changing apps necessitates a change in tests.
- Adaptive test scripts make the job easier.
- Test management improves the quality of software.
- Adapt the testing procedure to the circumstances.
Follow these steps to make your Selenium scripts function with a changing product:
- Make appropriate use of CSS identifiers. When ID is available, use it.
- Make use of a page object model.
- Subdivide huge tests into smaller ones….
- Working closely with the developers who are implementing the changes is essential.
