Understanding Use of Parameterization of Test Cases in Test Automation

In the highly competitive times that we are in today, the focus of every product as well as software development team is to reduce the Time to Market and release the first version of a product as well as subsequent updates (in case of software) in the shortest time possible. When it comes to software application development, development as well as QA needs to be completed within strict deadlines, which creates the need for automation. Automation is essential because it saves the time and efforts of the QA professionals and boosts efficiency of the testing process, without a compromise in quality.

There are many ways in which a test automation tool saves time and boosts efficiency, and parameterization testing is one of them. Parameterization testing refers to the provision of adding parameters to a test case, so that the same test case can be executed with multiple sets of parameters, without the need to create multiple separate test cases for every set of parameters. The key advantages that parameterization testing offers include easy scalability and elimination of possibility of errors when writing test cases multiple times.

Parameterization Testing with QARA Enterprise

QARA Enterprise is a highly advanced parameterization testing tool thanks to its advanced parameterization testing features. We'll look at QARA Enterprise's parameterization features in this section.

This functionality is best for projects that require a large number of cases to be tested in the same way. It's feasible that testers won't have to spend as much time and effort obtaining data sets for performing such test cases. The values saved in global and local test data of the QARA Enterprise platform can be utilised to repeat test cases without duplicating work.

Key Points to Understand Parameterization Testing with QARA Enterprise are as follows:

Once a test case has been built, users can run it with multiple parameters or values to guarantee consistency.

Users can save values or parameters such as their name, address, and phone number in QARA Enterprise's parameter repository.

Users can also generate data sets containing values that are specific to a test scenario.

Key Benefits of Parameterization Testing Tool

The key advantages of parameterization testing are as follows:

  • Externalizes variable aspects of tests as parameters, making it easier to manage complex test cases.
  • Using a test automation tool, conduct several variations of each test at the same time. When a parameter has several values, multiple tests will be conducted for each variation of the parameter.
  • There is a feature that allows information to be shared across several test cases. It's simple to do simply stating the values of the parameters in the test sets, which basically results in the values being shared across all test cases.
