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.

Senior Technical Support Analyst at Kaeppel Consulting, LLC

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.
