I recently started using a network monitoring tool called Pingdom by a vendor called Solar Winds, and whilst this is chiefly a monitoring tool one thing it can do it execute “transactions” and then record the time taken to complete (then gather then data to visualise trends etc). Transactions are built by creating steps that interact with the page (click x, fill in field y with z, etc) but the beautiful element is that no coding is required - the application basically scans the page for the selectors. If a selector is not found then it can be very easily worked around and copied from the page by inspecting. A UI test to navigate through a site can be easily done in a few minutes. It isn’t intimidating at all - no coding required.
I am looking now for something similar which could be used as an aid to the testing - some something which has an interface which can easily be used by anyone. We have a c# framework but I would like something additional which could be used by anyone to create the UI driven tests. I’m looking at examples such as Test Cafe (by DevExpress) and maybe Katalon. It wouldn’t be to replace the C# ( I still want the lower level tests performed) this is an addition - the mission more to make the automation accessible to all.
Any thought or experience really appreciated. Thank you
