Haymarket chose Provar in the hope of speeding up their Salesforce regression testing.
Provar is a no-code test automation tool. Because Provar is tightly integrated with Salesforce, it provides a more efficient way to implement automation, intelligently locating Salesforce fields, objects and other key metadata. Minor changes to an environment become easier to accommodate, reducing maintenance effort and increasing scalability.
Haymarket found Provar easy to set up and were able to build up a large library of test cases in a short time. The tool’s drag-and-drop interface meant that test cases could be built and updated quickly in the browser, and test cases were easy to maintain because the tool did not require any programming knowledge to use. Haymarket built roughly 150 test cases over the first 3 months, averaging 2 test cases a day.
Haymarket also set up daily execution reports to help them identify and address new issues quickly. Part of the team’s DevOps strategy was to execute their entire Salesforce regression testing pack automatically every night and email the results to the team for checking every morning. This was set up quickly using Provar’s ANT script generator, which can easily be set up to be run via popular Continuous Integration tools such as Jenkins. This was a great benefit to the team since they could quickly check every morning to see whether any new issues had arisen since the test suite’s previous run. This made it easy to locate and resolve issues and it increased confidence in the stability of the application.
