Why use Record & Replay?

An automated test runs automatically and automatically collaborates if the tested website works as expected. The easiest way to create an automated test is to record user actions on the tested website. The Record & Replay feature gives you such possibility. Use it to record a web test and then play the script back multiple times to check if the website’s behavior changed or not.

  • We designed Record & Replay to make automated testing seamless and easy.

  • You don’t have to deal with complex languages and frameworks to build an automated script.

    The Record & Replay tool helps any user transition from a Manual Live Tester into a powerful Automated user. We have built this tool to work solely through a simple Interface. No need to hack around a text editor, with cumbersome frameworks, to get your scripts up and running in no time.

How it works

When you start recording and working with the tested website, you can scroll pages, input text, click links, and so on. The recorder saves your actions to a script. You can record multiple scripts, and each of them will check one aspect of the application under a test.

Use test suitesto run scripts regularly. A suite is a collection of scripts which you can execute in environments (also called configurations). An environment (or configuration) defines the browser, operating system, and screen resolution that you use for the run. A suite has multiple configurations, and every script of the suite runs on every chosen configuration.

You can run suites manually, or schedule. To do that, use the built-in scheduler.
