Creating Snapshot in Test Discovery

Test Discovery is a test mining platform that enhances ERP application testing by automatically finding gaps in test coverage.

Test Discovery analyzes your application’s configuration logs and existing test cases to map its functionality and shows areas lacking test coverage. After this, it suggests tailored testing scenarios to address these gaps, based on unique configuration logs.

It takes snapshots of the testing process. By adding snapshots at regular intervals, you can compare the actual and the expected outcomes of your processes, and identify areas with deviations. 

This information assists in making informed business decisions, such as:

  • Identifying improvement areas for test coverage.

  • Prioritizing your resources to areas that need maximum attention.

  • Measuring the overall business impact of changes.

Let’s understand, how it it works:
