Version 2.10.4 Date: 2 October, 2020

Recording is not encoding. 2.10.4 is another significant feat on making the process of test creation easier than before and faster than before, yet not compromising with the robustness and readability of test cases.

Convert manual actions into automation, automatically

Introducing the all new test recording capability in conjunction with LiveTesting to enhance your test creation experience.

In addition to running a test step at a time or running an entire test case at a time, you can now interact with your live testing stream. Interaction will allow you to basically interact with the live stream as you would interact with a browser window: inspecting elements, debugging etc. Not only this, you can now record your actions. The manual actions taken by you on the screen will be transcribed to automated test steps on PaceEditor. After which, you may run the recorded steps one after another to verify their functionality.

You may wonder, how is it different than any other recording tool. Well, the quick answer is, in a lot many ways. To start with, often recording tools create a code script of your manual actions. Such a script is often purely code, which from a less-technical tester’s and business owner’s point of view is incomprehensible. As a result, recorded test cases are extremely difficult to follow at the best and a nightmare to debug at the worst. Not only that, they become a maintenance hazard. Our recorder transcribes your actions into a highly readable PaceWords script, hence they are easy to follow, debug and carry with them the inbuilt robustness of PaceWords. So one more time, recording is not encoding.

Secondly, often recording is a one shot process wherein one records a bunch of action and gets a script at the end. Test recording process often does not allow users to interact with the recorded steps or validate them in middle of the recording. With Qentinel Pace’s recorder, you can interact with the recorded test steps, modify them, add a new step by just typing, validate them and resume recording.

Run a single test case

Let’s say, you are browsing through your test cases in PaceEditor and you wish to execute one particular test case. Earlier, you could do it by exiting PaceEditor and using advanced options. While you can still do it the old way, however, the coolest way is to perform this action from PaceEditor itself.

Right above every test case name, you have options for initiating a live testing session, running the test and viewing test analytics. Hit run test. Please note that the above mentioned actions are tied to that particular test case.
