Setting up Automated Testing Framework (ATF)
Here's our set up.
We created a local admin account in our non-productions.
Then we added a powershell script to launch the browser to the scheduled runner.
I prefer making the records user, the user's membership as part of the test to ensure I have a clean, working state instead of picking a user who may have that role.
- Create a base Test, a test you will have everyone start from that does the following;
- Create a user
- Create a user membership
- Impersonate the new user
- Do the actual test.
A few things to remember
- Don't test code you don't own.
- Test's should be independent.
- Test good/bad path. Meaning, if you add functionality for x group, verify it doesn't exist for y group.
