Need of Opkey PeopleSoft Recorder:

Oracle’s PeopleSoft application has a unique architecture based on the configuration data, metadata, and PeopleCode. Most of the testing tools are generic, testing the browser actions but unaware of the underlying data structure. Continuous upgrades of the application is the main reason that users can’t maintain recorded automated test scripts.

Manual testing has its limits which cannot cover all scenarios & it’s not feasible to adopt.

Now, there is Opkey PeopleSoft Recorder which is very helpful in creating automated scripts by recording the manual procedures & play it back by using our PeopleSoft specific plugin engine. Once the script is created, you can customize it as per the requirement of the scenario and maintain it as per the upgrades.

Opkey PeopleSoft Recorder comes with the Opkey Smart Recorder package. For installing Opkey PeopleSoft Recorder, please refer to Installing Opkey Smart Recorder. Once, it has installed on your machine, its icon will be visible on the desktop.

Opkey Smart Recorder is a complete recorder package which works as a Web, Mobile, Desktop, Salesforce, Workday, Oracle, Oracle Fusion Recorder as well as PeopleSoft Recorder. You need to choose the platform (Web, Mobile, Desktop, Oracle, Oracle Fusion, Salesforce, Workday or PeopleSoft) on which you want to perform recording.

If you are performing recording on Web, Mobile, Desktop or Oracle PeopleSoft applications for the first time, you need to install Opkey Smart Recorder. Once it is installed, you can perform recording on the supported platforms applications. You can also install the standalone Smart Recorder installer.
