Of late our organisations’s systems have been under too many configuration changes, that may sometimes require some code change (e.g. just a database table update to change some configurations). The team has decided that such operations should form a part of BAU for Operations teams and since they need to be tested and verified, the Operations teams should ideally be testing such changes.
However, the testing guidelines need to be followed which makes the test team equally responsible for what’s been tested for such changes.
I have been asked to come up with some process around it where test team can oversee and provide a framework to the Operations team.
What would you suggest the considerations should be while formalising a process for this? Also, is there any formal “name” for this kind of testing?
