Eggplant Manager Primary Use Case
Automation Software Development Analyst 3 at a aerospace/defense firm with 10,001+ employees
I manage a team of testers. It's more of a software team, but I manage a team of testers that utilizes Eggplant every day. The reason we picked Eggplant was because the testers don't have a lot of coding experience.
Eggplant Functional is a GUI automation tool. We only use it for GUI automation. The applications that we use it for are mainly desktop applications.
It is not a test management tool, it's not like Jazz or QF-Test, it's a GUI automation tool. So when you look at Facebook or LinkedIn, that is the UI, the user interface. It's buttons, it's scroll downs, it's menus, it's drop downs, it's how a user navigates through the application. That's the only thing we use it for - GUI automation. It is not a test management tool. Test management tools are like Jazz.
It's on-prem. It has to be for our job because we do a lot of classified stuff.View full review »
Our primary use case of Eggplant was for test automation for vulnerability scanning. We were making sure certain things were installed and in place; dates, scanning certain texts to make sure that what it was looking for matched in terms of dates and version numbers, things like that. This solution is software as a service. I'm a senior technical support analyst.
