Today’s challenge in the 30 days of automation in testing challenge is:
What types of testing can automation support you with? Share an example.
It’s been a while since I have used automation but here goes. For me, I see automation as a helper. I can use it at the API layer because let’s face it, I can’t be checking all of that manually So I can use tools like Postman there.
At the UI layer, I use Selenium to automate the boring/mundane/repetitive tasks. This then frees me up to explore the application more and use my time better elsewhere.
I know this isn’t the strongest answer, as I said, it’s been a while since I was automating.
What do you think? What types of testing can automation support you with?
