mabl integration with CircleCI

In a world where teams are releasing product updates faster than ever before, new challenges have emerged. Quality assurance and testing have become a significant bottleneck for teams due to the time it takes to run and maintain reliable, effective tests. However, by integrating automated testing directly into CI/CD, dev teams can adequately support rapid release cycles without sacrificing application quality.

CircleCI is a continuous integration and continuous deployment service that ties automated builds, tests and releases together in a single workflow. CircleCI is available both as a hosted service and as an on-premise installation. The CircleCI Orb developed to integrate with mabl makes it easy for customers to execute tests as part of their CI/CD pipeline and to provide a test report of the executed tests inside the CircleCI interface.

mabl and CircleCI together accelerate development by:

  • Automatically testing builds for visual, functional and performance regressions on every deployment
  • Enabling your CI/CD workflow to automatically make informed decisions based on individual test output – decisions that would otherwise have to be done manually
  • View mabl test results directly in the CircleCI interface

Value of integrating automated testing into your development workflow:

  • Enable faster, more efficient management of your entire software delivery pipeline
  • Reduce cost of issue resolution by catching them earlier in the development lifecycle
  • Reduce the time developers would have to spend on tedious server configuration and bug fixing
