Record a new web test case

DevAssure simplifies the process of test creation by offering a seamless recording experience. Users can effortlessly record their interactions with web applications to create automated test scripts.

Once a new test case is created, it is opened in editor.

You can quickly record test steps as below:

  • Click on Record Steps from the Automation tab in editor.
  • The Recorder pops up and launches the Chromium browser.
  • Enter URL in the Chromium browser opened and perform the desired actions, which will be recorderd and listed in the recorder.

Selecting Browsers and Resolutions during Recording

One of the standout features of DevAssure is its capability to allow users to select their preferred browsers during the recording process. Users enjoy the flexibility of choosing from a variety of supported browsers, including Chrome, Chromium, and Edge, along with the option to specify their desired resolutions.

By default, DevAssure employs the Chromium browser for recording operations. However, should users wish to alter this default setting, they can follow these simple steps

Edit/Delete Steps While Recording

DevAssure now streamlines your test creation process by allowing you to directly edit and delete steps while recording your tests. This eliminates the need to stop recording, navigate to the test script, and make changes, saving you valuable time and effort.

Here's how to use Edit/Delete Steps while recording:

  • Begin recording your test as usual.
  • Locate the step you want to edit or delete within the recording.
  • Click on the step to perform the required operation.

Playback a web test case

Playback in DevAssure checks or runs recorded test cases to determine if the test will run without any errors like it did while recording the tests.

Once tests are recorded, users can replay them to verify the functionality and behavior of their web applications. This enables efficient regression testing and ensures the stability of software releases.
