AI-based testing Feedback Tool

Mobile, web, and windows-based SAP GUI tests

When using AI to inspect your application for objects, you can send feedback directly to Micro Focus. Comment on how well AI Inspection identified the objects in your application and help improve the identification in the future.


Using the feedback tool, you can provide various types of feedback: 

  • General comments

  • Comment on the classes chosen for identified objects

  • Mark objects that were not identified at all

Comments that you send to the feedback server are anonymous. These are considered when the AI identification capabilities are upgraded, and help build a better engine over time.

If you need help with object identification in your application, save your feedback locally, and attach it to your support ticket.
