Advice on recording a script

Postby ReggieN » Mon Aug 26, 2019 11:28 am

Hello there.

I was wondering:

What is the better way to record a script manually or just construct it right the first time?

Any recommendations on which way is the best way to approach this?

Thanks

That's a very important and critical concern when recording a script ReggieN.

This depends on whether you want to have the script be super-resilient or if you want it to be sensitive to the smallest change.

Usually in regression testing you want "sensitive" scripts because they show changes (regressions) better.

However, if you are running monitoring for just one or two features on a web page then you may want to engineer your script to be super-resilient, and thus NOT to create warnings except

Here is a general guideline for making recordings.

Which way is better?

We recommend starting with a automatic recording and if necessary to make it less sensitive to re-write that original recording using the DOM manipulation features.
