What is Tellus?
Tellus is a web application that realizes UI automated testing including a wrapped module to make Selenium Grid, which enables distribution testing on multiple nodes possible, easier to use.
As a main feature, it is possible to describe test scripts with OutSystems Action, abstracting by human-centric operations such as "open, input, confirm", so you can write test scripts more concisely.
This makes it possible to execute tests simply by passing parameters to Action, and it also eliminates the need to write troublesome Sleep processing , etc.
Standalone Configuration Example
Distributed Configuration Example
Write Test Script in Outsystems Visual Language
Add a special attribute to the element
Although we have prepared several selectors to identify elements, we recommend that you add a special attribute (test-id) to the extended properties of the target application.
Set parameters to Action
You can execute a single operation by specifying elements with Human Sentric Action and assigning parameters.
Separate page specific details and the test scenario
Tellus can achieve the recommended PageObjects pattern in Selenium.
When designing an automated framework for testing web applications, we need to accept the fact that the target application and its components are subject to change.
Therefore, when new changes are made to the target application, it must be designed to minimize the required refactoring.
To do that, it is necessary to separate the page element ID and page-specific detailed information from the test scenario separately.
Selectors that are used repeatedly like ByTestId("CustomerName") are assigned as variables in Action, so if there is a change, you need only change that part.
The parameterization test can be realized by passing a record in For Each from the record list created by Aggregate of OutSystems. Also, test data can be easily prepared with the unique function of Aggregate.
Compare and check the values acquired by command etc. with Text type, Integer type, Boolean type.
Serial Execution and Parallel Execution
Tests in multiple environments within the same test case are performed serially. When running multiple test cases simultaneously, they are processed in parallel.
If the test case contains file download processing, avoid running multiple test cases at the same time. It may not be possible to get the correct file.
Tellus has two editons available - Community and Enterprise.
