Smoke Testing

Highlight tests as smoke tests to avoid running long test-runs for no use

Smoke tests are a form of gateway tests that need to execute successfully to warrant further, more-time-consuming, testing. This is how Boozang can help you setup smoke tests easily:

  • Decide which tests are critical and taht run fast enough to qualify as “smoke-tests”.
  • Create an composite test “Smoke Test Suite” that references all these tests
  • Try the test url in a headless browser and make sure it executes successfully
  • Plugin the test step in your build pipeline such as Jenkins or Go, and make sure pipeline aborts if test execution fails
