How to Bullet-Proof ‘Flaky’ Automated Tests

While most automated tests run consistently, there are others that you might term as ‘flaky’ or ‘tricky’. Those are the ones that sometimes pass, sometimes fail and are hard to get working reliably. We’ve all encountered them, regardless of the testing tool is in use. The difficulty often involves inconsistent timing of asynchronous events. In this webinar, we’ll examine examples provided by the AscentialTest user community along with their solutions. We invite your participation by sending us an example and joining in on the discussion. We’ll also review AscentialTest debugging features and talk about a few upcoming features that enhance debugging capabilities.
