test techniques Questions

I need to automate the process where each time I need to register a user with a different email and verify them. Is there any such email service that allows testers to automate the process of getting a token / URL from a temporary mail address?

We have a very complex software product that is installed and runs on a Computer or Server.  The Software is managed by a Management Console in the Cloud. 

For years all of our End to End testing was manual.  But this was very resource intensive and time comsuming.  So a couple of years ago we moved to a more agule development approach and built a test automation system to run these End to End tests.  However, we quickly found limitations for example we couldn't have automated tests check what is being displayed in the UI running on the Computer, or check what is being displayed in the Management Console in the Cloud.  So we can never fully replicate in automation what the manual tests were doing.

The result is that we still run, some if not all, of the automated tests manually so check the parts that the automation can't.  So it hasn't really saved us any time or effort.  Also the reliability of the automated tests is an issue due to trhe complexity of the software and it having so many moving parts.  We often run into timing related issues.

Is it possible that some software does not make a suitable candidate for End to End test automation?  If so, what sort of approach should be taken in that situation?  I've been ready about test automation a lot and looked at a number of different tools and systems, but both the tools and the theory all seem to be based around website testing, rather than testing Desktop software.

Many thanks in advance for any thoughts and suggestions. 

I am new to testing and my mentor at the company is asking me to get my base strong with regards to manual testing. I know java and made few demo projects with selenium - browser automation and rest assured - API testing . They are expecting me to have better test cases coverage and base needs to be strong . So , anybody knows few blogs/resources from which I can get my foundation strong?

 

 

In live agile and waterfall project, how can we perform regression testing successfully ?

which test cases we need to execute and how to maintain the regression testing folder ?

should we do full regression testing or partial regression? 

how to prioritise regression testing if time is less? 

what are the best practices to successfully do regression testing in a agile project

I need help. I don't have very clear requirements and I have never tested a loyalty points system before. I need to design the test cases for the users to execute UAT. Any pointers? 

I want to know the best approaches (Automated UAT, Regression testing, Retesting, etc.) to reduce production defects in software development.

I would like to find out strategies used by other QA as well as which methods would work best in this environment as I am used to working in a dev environment and not financial institution 

 
 

Environment issue is due to data not sync between 2 applications and this is on test environment. I managed to get 2-3 records for which code is working correct.
