The Condensed List



Central Repository that houses all your Manual and Automated Test cases and results. - Providing transparency on all testing initiatives



Share modules, test cases, and more so they can be reused decreasing time to create new test cases.



Reduced Maintenance cost due to the modular approach of Tosca, updating and maintaining test cases is simplified and can be done very quickly.



Easy to use. Users do not need development background



Can Capture your manual testing step-by-step as you test 



Captures screenshots and button clicks as you test



Captures and Stores your testing results



Documenting the test steps that can be shared/ repeated or converted into Automated test cases



Captures and automate test cases all at once 



Repeatable Automated Test cases that can be re-run at any time 



Create a base template test case that can be instantiated to create different test cases testing various permutations



A single update to a template which can update multiple test cases at once



Full Traceability


You can have Jira User stories or other source systems flowing into Tosca Requirements 



Link the requirements to Test Cases so you know your test case coverage


 


Setup and execute test cases based off of Risk (Risk Bases Testing) 



Create Bugs in Tosca and flow back to Jira or other source systems 



Associate Bugs to Requirements and Test Cases



Distributed Execution & CI/CD - Test cases can be set up to be executed on VM's or VDI's so it does not take up a users machine



Tosca can tie into Jenkins to complete a CI/CD pipeline, so when code is pushed out test cases will automatically kick-off



Task Scheduler can be utilized to execute test cases at a specific time or day

Benefits of using Tosca to Automate regression testing for a web application to test the browser interface for the web app.




The great thing that makes Tosca so powerful is that it is so flexible and offers multiple ways to do things.




Central Repository that houses all your Manual and Automated Test cases and results.   - Providing transparency on all testing initiatives   - Share modules, test cases, and more so they can be reused decreasing time to create new test cases.   - Reduced Maintenance cost due to the modular approach of Tosca, updating and maintaining test cases is simplified and can be done very quickly.




There are built-in tools like Exploratory Testing and Interactive testing that helps you capture your current manual regression testing.     - Easy to use. Users do not need development background      - Captures your manual testing step-by-step as you test     - Captures screenshots and button clicks as you test     - Captures and Stores your testing results     - Documenting the test steps that can be shared/ repeated or converted into Automated test cases



Automated Test Case Recorder is like Exploratory testing. The difference is when it is capturing your test case it is also creating automated test steps at the same time.      - Easy to use.  Users do not need development background      - Captures and automate test cases all at once      - Repeatable Automated Test cases that can be re-run at any time     - Single source for test results 



Create your own test cases by manually scanning and creating your own modules and building your own test steps.     - Easy to use. Users do not need development background      - Repeatable Automated Test cases     - Create more complex testing scenarios     - Create a base template test case that can be instantiated to create different test cases testing various permutations     - A single update to a template which can update multiple test cases at once      - Single source for test results



Tosca allows for full Traceability.    - You can have Jira User stories or other source systems flowing into Tosca Requirements    - Link the requirements to Test Cases so you know your test case coverage    - Setup and execute test cases based off of Risk (Risk Bases Testing)    - Create Bugs in Tosca and flow back to Jira or other source systems    - Associate Bugs to Requirements and Test Cases



Distributed Execution & CI/CD    - Test cases can be set up to be executed on VM's or VDI's so it does not take up a users machine     - Tosca can tie into Jenkins to complete a CI/CD pipeline, so when code is pushed out test cases will automatically kick-off    - Task Scheduler can be utilized to execute test cases at a specific time or day
