Testsigma: Simplified Test Automation

Updated: Mar 15, 2021

We, at QA TechTalks, are always looking to develop the QA community and make it better. We have the people of the community, volunteers, and our sponsors to thank for believing in our vision. We have collaborated with a number of QA services and platforms. Today we would like to highlight one such platform that has provided us with their support and sponsorship.


Testsigma has come forward and decided to be our gold and gift reward sponsor for the International Women’s Day Talk series — WomenInTech, which highlighted the important role that women play in the tech industry. We wanted to extend our thanks to them for becoming a part of our journey.

· It is due to sponsors that events become fun and exude positivity and gives back to our amazing speakers in the form of rewards for their hard work and passion.

We at QA TechTalks are delighted by this collaboration and thus wanted to highlight Testsigma for all the young testers out there who are new to the field and also to experienced people simply because of the sheer amount of simplification it is able to make to the complex process of testing.

So, let us get down to the very basic question:

What is Testsigma?

Testsigma is a cloud-based, AI-driven SaaS platform that allows you to automate all kinds of testing quite easily in English without needing to have significant coding knowledge.

So, basically, it is a testing tool that not only simplifies the process of testing but also helps with automation and simplification. It is a compact place for an all-in-one platform with multiple tools for testing.

The different testing services they provide:

1) Continuous testing: Testsigma offers left shift testing which allows you to test continuously without the availability of the application program. You can automate your testing even during the designing phase of your program.

It has scalability when it comes to the continuity of testing through the cloud. Thus the test automation can run smoothly on any OS/ browser/ Version combination and even on mobile devices that are available on the cloud.

It also provides fast and actionable feedback to save time on bug fixing and improve quality. Further test runs can be integrated into bigger builds and make your testing process compact.

2) Web application testing: This allows you to use functional testers and SMEs to develop automated test scripts simply by using commands in English.

You can create reusable “step groups” that allow you to repeat common testing steps and thereby saves time for developing scripts.

You can use bug reporting tools, apply parallel testing to reduce testing time, use cross-browser testing to check compatibility across platforms, use object/element repository to decrease maintenance and also schedule and group tests and receive notifications for immediate action to problems.

3) Regression testing: This allows you to run regression tests with added benefits like having test suites for making builds for regression tests based on the program. It reduces maintenance and saves time by auto-healing problems, running parallel tests, continuous integration of tests, and making test suites.

It also allows you to prioritise tests and create an order and also provides valuable feedback. It also used a centralised object repository and actionable feedback to optimize the simplicity and reduce testing time.

Scalability on cloud devices allow testing to be done across multiple platforms.

4) Mobile app testing: Testsigma’s mobile app testing tool allows you to run project management tools, bug report tools, and communication tools. This makes test automation compact and removes the stand-alone factor from it.

You can check all the other mobile application tests affected by any changes and smoothly do regression testing for them thereby saving time and also reduces chances of missed bugs.

With test data management you can use different inputs to test your mobile application. You can take screenshots and video evidence to work on faster debugs. It also has a built-in inspector for inspecting information about all the elements in your program.

5) Data-driven Testing: data-driven testing allows you to import data from different sources and different formats. It allows you to run different data sets for the same script and thus configure your programs accordingly.

You can increase your data coverage by taking both positive data sets and negative data sets. Multiple positive and negative data sets can also be run on a program. It also allows you to get separate results for every separate data set entered into a program.

6) Cross-browser testing: This allows you to automate testing across 2000+ cloud-based platforms that are real-time web browsers and mobile devices. This helps you make configurations to run applications across target devices and local browsers.

It also allows you to run the applications on a local test machine with secure tunneling options to run the applications on the cloud from behind the protection of a firewall.

After looking at the services offered by Testsigma we can take a look at the features offered by Testsigma to fully understand what makes it so unique in the testing niche.

Lucrative Features:

- Dashboard: This keeps tabs on your recent runs and latest activities thereby helping you out with plans. It also shows all scheduled executions so that you can prepare beforehand and also manage them with your team properly.

- Test plan: This keeps a tab on your version, the applications run, and the different requirements of each version. It also helps you manage multiple projects and allows you to assign separate parts to users depending on the user role. It also has test cases and test case priority to prioritise and execute tests properly.

- Test development: This has test data management and UI identifiers to manage and migrate test data for applications. It also has a global parameter that allows you to manage global test data.

- Test lab: It helps in creating test suites to run multiple executions, parallel executions, and also schedule future executions. Further, it also helps in cross browser testing and cross-device testing for better optimisation.

- Reports: This gives execution results for multiple runs separately, it provides results for multiple environments (each one separately). It also gives test suite run results, test case results and also reports all the bugs automatically.

- Analytics: This gives you a detailed analysis of your productivity, your test development results over time, and also your user activity to keep your work and progress in check.

- Configuration: This helps you configure user roles and also manage your users across the platform and their access. It also helps you make custom fields, plugins, and environments.

Now that you have taken a look at the vast expanse of services and features provided by our sponsor we encourage you to go over to their website and take a demo or just go through the services. They have guides helping you as well.

Overall Testsigma gives you all you need in one place and saves you the trouble of finding the right testing tools, enabling you to work faster, harder and better.

We once again thank Testsigma for the love and support they have provided the QA TechTalks community and look forward to working and collaborating with them in the future as well.
