Next Generation Automation Certification Program Video

  • In the video, I explain the test workflow that I have automated as part of the Next Generation Automation Certification Program. 

  • I have developed the framework architecture from scratch using C# as Programming Language and Selenium as Automation API.

  • Based on Automation workflow, I have developed Page Class Methods along with Test Class methods using Data driven test approach.

  • Also, I have used the Allure reporting plugin to show the detailed test execution status along with Test Dashboard containing Test Pass and Fail Count for every test run. 

  • Also, I have integrated the automation framework with Azure and Jenkins Pipeline to let tests execute without any manual intervention.
