DevOps testing holds the promise of eliminating bottlenecks as each new code deployment is automatically verified against existing tests.
In the real world, complex challenges undermine the DevOps goal of high quality, at speed and at scale. Technical challenges include manually defining and testing automated tests to ensure they will work, while many test scenarios simply cannot be automated.
Meanwhile, the backlog grows as continual change outstrips the ability to deliver automated tests.
The Digivante DevOps testing service provides a fully documented set of APIs to define tests, run criteria, initiate the execution and retrieve the results as execution progresses. This allows functional scripted and exploratory testing to be managed by API.
The APIs integrate into build processes. The pipeline processes pass across information and initiate the tests via the API, while testers can retrieve the results and evidence in the same way.
Digivante’s services for DevOps testing
Digivante DevOps testing provides a way of interfacing with Digivante services for modern use cases, such as CI/CD:
Real client use case
Our development team worked closely with the client to implement the API calls required. This was then tested and signed off for use within the build process. The client has used our API calls to trigger a request for a smoke test run to be executed as a part of every code deployment into their pre-production environment. The smoke test run takes about 1 hour to complete, and the results are available via dynamic reporting within the Digivante portal.
