Functional Test Design

ValueEdge Functional Test Design enables you to create codeless test automation scripts, using AI-based object identification.


Functional Test Design identifies objects in your application as a human would, and helps you build your tests step by step. After you develop a codeless automation script in FT Design, you can associate it with a Codeless Test entity in the Quality module. Within ValueEdge, you can add parameters to use when running the codeless test.

You can then schedule and run the test in the cloud using Functional Test Execution.

For details on FT Design, see the Functional Test Design help center.

Associating codeless tests

This section describes how to create and associate codeless tests in the Quality module with FT Design scripts.

To associate codeless tests in Quality with scripts in FT Design:

  1. In Quality > Tests, select + Codeless Test and define test details. The Testing tool type field is automatically set to FT Design.

  2. In the Details tab, click the Open in Design button . This opens the Functional Test Design interface.

  3. Create your script as described in the Functional Test Design help center.

  4. Optionally, add parameters and data:

    1. Open a codeless test and add parameters via the Parameters tab. Click + Codeless Test Parameter. You can also assign a default value.

    2. In the Data Sets tab, add values for each of the parameters. When you run your test with a data set, the script runs iteratively, using one row of parameter values from the data set for each iteration.

  5. Add this test to a test suite in Quality, or execute the test in the cloud using Functional Test Execution. For details, see Functional Test Execution.

Alternatively, you can first create a script in Functional Test Design, and then associate the script with a codeless test in the Quality module.

Automate manual tests

You can use Aviator's AI capabilities to generate automated codeless tests from your manual tests.

The test steps are written in plain English and identify objects in your application visually, as a person would.

To generate automated codeless tests from manual tests:

  1. In Quality > Tests, select one or more manual tests, and click the Generate Codeless Test button .

  2. Click Generate. The generated scripts are stored in Functional Test > Design, in a folder named Generated from manual.

  3. After your codeless tests are generated, open them in Design to check for any necessary adjustments.

    Note: An AI-generated script may be inaccurate and incomplete. Make sure to review it in Design and ensure that it runs locally before running it in a Test Suite.

    For details, see the Functional Test Design help center.
