Functionize’s mission is to enable everyone to test smarter. That means using AI to enhance test creation, execution, analysis, and maintenance. Building automated tests using an ML-powered tool can seem daunting. That’s why we have added new smart help features in the latest Architect release (1.4.59).
AI Assist is a new feature that will give you helpful reminders to ensure that you can create robust tests. Two of the most common issues AI Assist checks for are:
It can be easy to forget to add verifications if you’re new to creating smart tests. If you try to save your test without any verification steps, you will see an alert prompting you to add at least one verification. Of course, it’s better to have even more than that. After all, without verifications, the AI isn’t really testing anything at all! It’s just going through a series of steps.
Most of us let our browser autofill forms for us. While these are definitely helpful for us humans, they can cause problems in your test. For instance, imagine if your test needs to login with a test user account but you accidentally let it autofill the username and password. In most cases, this will now trigger the following popup, warning you there might be something wrong.
Of course, you might actually have the correct autofill details and this warning could get annoying. So, we let you snooze some AI Assist messages. You can control this in the Architect Settings pane. However, we recommend keeping them on. After all, no matter how experienced you are, who wouldn’t want to have a trusty sidekick helping you create robust tests?
Getting started with a new tool can be daunting. So, we have also developed a series of Onboarding tips and tasks to help you get started. These will walk you through the core features of Architect to make sure you get the most out of the product. When you first launch Functionize, you will see a popup explaining this and prompting you to click the ‘?’ help symbol at the bottom right of the screen.
You may be familiar with some of the features in Architect, but not all. Feel free to skip any steps in the virtual tour or to Skip All when you’re done.
