Common problems(Challenges) of Test Automation
In the processing of automation in testing, there are a lot of problems. It is a challenging task. So you have to find out, where the problem occurs and how to handle that. Some of the problems that occurred are with the detailed description.
The effect of confidence also leads to unrealistic expectations. In test automation, we are solving most of all problems. Sometimes it may not meet the expectations.
Poor testing practices
Actually, the automation contains a number of testings. Sometimes it is poor to testing the practices. By testing practices, we can improve the effectiveness of testing.
Expectations that automated tests will find new faults
Testing tools are useful, but those things can find a large number of new defects. The regression testing tools are used in repeating tests that are run already.
False sense of security
Sometimes, there are no defects In the software. But the outcome will carry the incorrect outcomes. The preservation of automation tests gives outcome indefinitely.
Maintenance of automated tests
If the software changed or updated, then our tests must be updated for proper software running.
Mostly the testing tools are large and complex that require detailed technical knowledge.
The test automation supported by management and implemented in the organization. The organization contains the selecting tools, training, learning, and experimenting.
The lack of necessary skills
test automation has a number of benefits. But it has huge skills to do the work successfully. In test automation, there is no single person to do the work perfectly, this wants a group or team of people to do it easily and correctly.
Teams don’t balance tests before automating
Starting of automation is balancing the process. If the test automation fails, then we going to Manual testing.
Sometimes Lab management is a burden
The lab consists of operating systems, devices, and browsers and always they are out of date.
Test automation becomes dynamic
The powerful way to detain automation is to start small then to scale. Actually, for scaling, we have to pick the right tools accordingly. The scale needs the skills, tools, and people.
Sorting through all the data
The data must be analyzed and reviewed. And it consists of log files, architects and it contains useful information.
By using selenium, the automation testing challenges
- Popup windows
- Identifying dynamic elements
- Timeout or sync issue
- Cross-browser testing
- Testing of mobile apps
- Page loading
- Multi-tab testing
- Limited reporting
- Limited captcha handling
- Supports only web-based applications
Process automation implementing challenges are,
- Choosing what to automate
- Employee resistance
- Etting realistic goals and expectations
- Risk of creating silos
- Getting started
Challenges of RPA(Robotic process Automation) implementation
Lack of skilled resources
On-demand, the skilled resources have been a revolt. The crct and the best resources give the Robotic process automation success.
Automating processes end to end
Sometimes the process is incomplete. Then we need some other algorithms. By this, the organization and the project face the cost problem.
Not enough support from business
The support from the businesses for workflow is the key to the implementations of Robotics process automation.
Proper team structure
This is the best challenge in the Robotics process automation. the sharing of resources between the teams. So the team must be understandable for good results.
Not following best practices
During RPA implementation, debugging the code is difficult to maintain the workflow.
Inadequate support from the vendor
In any technology, if we don’t have any Insufficient/inadequate support from the vendor the success of your project is not developed perfectly.
If we want the success of our technology, we make a clear goal. In RPA implementation we know the expectations of the management and the team involved in the technology.
Some of the mechanisms for the automated processes give inconsistent outcomes, which are scaled by RPA.
Sometimes, we can’t get the expected results. Then the staff may ambiguity among the result.
Lack of ownership
The automated environment is new to some of the people, it impacts the roles and responsibilities of that work.
For the processing of RPA implementation, we are choosing the platform. If we choose the wrong platform it is the most challenging in the whole RPA implementation.
Lack of infrastructure
This is the most effective challenge in the RPA implementation. If we do not take a proper infrastructure, we can’t get the proper/best results.
