E-commerce Application Test Automation using UiPath is a comprehensive solution designed to streamline and optimize the testing process for e-commerce applications. UiPath, a leading Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform, enables users to create automation workflows that mimic human interactions with the application’s user interface.
With this solution, testers can create a test suite consisting of a series of test cases that cover various aspects of the e-commerce application, including product browsing, cart management, checkout process, payment integration, order tracking, and customer account management. The test suite is created using UiPath Studio, which provides a visual interface for designing automation workflows.
The test suite can be executed on-demand or scheduled to run at specific intervals. UiPath’s built-in Orchestrator allows for centralized management and monitoring of the test executions across multiple environments and platforms.
During the execution of each test case, UiPath interacts with the e-commerce application’s UI elements, such as buttons, input fields, dropdowns, and navigation menus, to simulate user actions. It verifies the expected behavior and compares it with the actual outcome, automatically capturing any discrepancies or errors.
UiPath’s test automation capabilities also enable the handling of dynamic elements, such as pop-ups, error messages, and changing page layouts, ensuring robust and reliable testing even in complex e-commerce applications.
By automating the testing process, e-commerce businesses can significantly reduce the time and effort required for manual testing. It allows for faster test execution, increased test coverage, and early detection of defects, ensuring the application’s quality and stability.
In summary, e-commerce application test automation using UiPath offers a powerful and scalable solution for efficiently testing and validating various aspects of an e-commerce application. It enables organizations to deliver high-quality products, enhance customer experience, and accelerate time-to-market while reducing the risk of critical errors and functional issues.
Process Flow Description-
1.UiPath Studio -
UiPath Studio is a powerful automation tool that offers a range of capabilities to streamline and automate the testing process for e-commerce platforms such as Salesforce Cloud, Oracle, and SAP. By simply dragging and dropping activities onto the canvas, developers can build complex test cases with ease without the need for extensive programming knowledge
UiPath Studio also provides an object repository, which serves as a centralized storage for application objects and elements. With the object repository, maintaining and updating test cases becomes more streamlined, as any changes made to the objects are automatically reflected across all associated test cases.
Furthermore, UiPath Studio offers comprehensive capabilities for testing various platforms, including mobile, web, and API. Developers can leverage UiPath’s mobile automation features to interact with mobile applications on real devices or emulators. These activities enable you to perform actions such as tapping, swiping, scrolling, inputting text, capturing screenshots, and verifying element properties on mobile apps. UiPath API automation allows you to test these integrations by automating API calls and validating the responses. You can simulate scenarios such as placing orders, retrieving product information, updating customer details, and processing payments through APIs.Furthermore, the Test Cases are linked with the UiPath Test Manager.
2.Source Control -
GitHub serves as a centralized code repository for UiPath automation projects. With Git as its core technology, GitHub provides robust version control capabilities. GitHub supports branching and merging, enabling the creation of separate branches for different features or fixes. This promotes parallel development among team members
3.CICD Azure DevOps -
In the CICD (Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment) process with Azure DevOps, when a new build becomes available in the git repository, Azure DevOps retrieves the code and generates a NuGet package. Subsequently, this NuGet package is published in the orchestrator.
4.UiPath Orchestrator -
Within the Orchestrator, UiPath robots execute the test cases on a virtual machine (VM), and the results of the execution are then added to the UiPath Test Manager.
5.UiPath Test Manager -
Within the Test Manger tracking test results in real-time is done. defects are instantly sent to Merchant acquisition system’s issue tracking tool with detailed, visual logging, so developers can triage, and fix rapidly.
