Videos on testing, DevOps, mabl, and more

Featured video
See how you can integrate mabl at each stage of the development process and how testing earlier helps developers reduce the burden of rework and improve quality.

mabl's Solutions Architect, Darrel Farris, took a break during Agile + DevOps West to sit down with Owen to talk about trends Darrel is seeing around the adoption of CI/CD, how enterprises keep pace with the speed of development today, and how a testing platform like mabl can enable testing earlier in development.

Unlimited Parallel Execution

Test Automation

End-to-End Testing

When setting up your test runs, mabl lets you schedule an unlimited amount of parallel executions to run at once. This lets you save a huge amount of time compared to running them in sequence, leading to faster and more efficient test executions that save you money. Check out this feature video to learn more!

 

The test review process is one of the most vital aspects of QA testing, and with increasing speeds of development and testing frequency, the feedback loop needs to be closer than ever between QA and development.

This is why it is so important for testing teams to have a clear understanding of how and when to leverage the tools at their disposal in order to troubleshoot tests effectively and efficiently.

In this second installment of mabl's Webinar Training Series, we focus on how to optimize your team's approach to reviewing mabl test results and isolating issues for faster turnaround. We cover:

  • Test output page breakdown

  • Step-by-step guide to debugging any test

  • Use case walk-through

  • Q&A

Each testing team is unique, but there are common ways to approach troubleshooting in mabl that will allow testers to get more from their efforts, and increase the pace of development as a result.

 

The mabl team hosted a music-based talent show over Zoom during one of our team meetings and showed off so much talent that we wanted to share it with the world!

Harrison Hunter, co-founder and CTO of MaestroQA, and his team of developers are distributing testing and delivering continuously - with the help of mabl. Take a look to see how MaestroQA is leading quality in the age of #DevOps and testing at every stage of the development cycle.

 

mabl collects dozens of identifiers for each UI element in your app, so as your UI evolves with development, your tests evolve too. Your tests will adapt to UI changes automatically and stay up to date even after several successive UI changes.

 

Creating robust automated tests is codeless and scriptless. Testing infrastructure is fully managed in the cloud. Scale tests infinitely and run them all in parallel. Auto-healing tests adapt to UI changes without intervention.

 

Cross Browser Testing

Testing in DevOps

Test Automation

The only SaaS service with native support for Chrome, Firefox, IE, and Safari. All without leveraging any 3rd party test-cloud beyond mabl. Reuse tests across different browsers. Run infinite tests in parallel. Testing nodes are scaled up in the cloud as you need them, with real browser installations on virtual machines.

 

This video explains what mabl is, its purpose, what tests and plans are and how they related to each other, where your test results live in the mabl app, how to edit tests after you've trained them, and how mabl runs in the cloud. Basically, the starter guide to mabl.

End to End Testing: Revolutionized

Test Automation

End-to-End Testing

mabl's Anton Hristov hosts this webinar where we introduce our new end-to-end testing features that allow teams to achieve a greater degree of test coverage over their web apps, including mabl Mailbox, application coverage with our Segment integration, visual explorer, PDF validation, and API steps.

 

Test Coverage

End-to-End Testing

Tying customer usage data to your tests was once a difficult task, but with mabl Test Coverage (powered by Segment.com), you can quickly see where you have gaps in test coverage and how risky those gaps might be. Quickly browse through your application pages to see coverage based on several measures, including journey statistics, page complexity, and daily users. To integrate user data, just configure mabl as a destination in Segment.

 

PDF Testing

End-to-End Testing

mabl is able to automate the traditionally manual task of PDF validation and makes it easier than ever to automate PDF validation into your workflow. When a PDF download is triggered in a journey training, mabl will detect the downloaded PDF and open it in a new tab, allowing you to assert against the elements it contains and whatever they contain. With PDF validation, you can ensure that any important documents sent to the user, whether it be an invoice or an e-book, are correct.

 

API Testing

How-Tos

Test Automation

Incorporate API requests into your end-to-end tests and validate responses, including the status code, headers and body (JSON/Text) values. API steps are also great for working with test data without having to interact with the UI of the application. For example, you can use an API step to create multiple customer records in your application and then delete those records in another API step at the end of the test plan.

Codeship CEO & founder Moritz Plassnig shares how mabl is set up to notify his team through Slack when there's a problem, helping his team find bugs before customers do.

 

Using the visual explorer, any member of your team can quickly browse through screenshots from all test runs to detect important visual regressions that typically slip through the cracks. Teams also use the explorer to validate expected visual changes and perform exploratory visual testing. For example, want to see screenshots for a given URL path and date? Just apply a filter.

 

Tests are executed on Google Cloud Platform and all data is encrypted in Google Cloud Storage. Saved credentials are encrypted with Google Key Management Service. Stripe and Auth0 protect your login and payment information.

 

Data Driven Testing

Testing in DevOps

Test Automation

Load external data into your tests to run multiple test cases in one plan. All test permutations run in parallel, so executing every test case takes only as long as one test.

 

Improve communication between developers and testers by using a shared platform for test results. Errors, JavaScript exceptions, and logs are displayed and sorted by the step at which each event occurred in the test.
