Important points when creating [Scenarios]

  • Autify creates a new environment for each test execution, and the environment is deleted when the test is completed. You cannot transfer cache, cookies, etc. to another test, but you can configure them using a [JS Step].
  • For a stable parallel execution, please create a [Scenario] that can be executed repeatedly.
    For example, in a [Scenario] for checking whether user registration can be done successfully, it may fail if the [Scenario] only includes user registration. This is because the user ID/email address was registered in a previous test.
    • In this case, there are two possible solutions:
      • Make sure that the user ID/email address is a unique value each time.
      • Record steps to delete the registered user's account in the [Scenario]. This way, no user account is registered to that user ID/email address each time the test is executed.

Important points when running [Scenarios]

  • Autify has a parallel execution feature that allows you to run ten tests in parallel in a Linux/Chrome environment, regardless of your contract. You can enable this feature from the Workspace Settings Page.
    • If you would like to increase the number of parallel executions or use the parallel execution feature in environments other than Linux/Chrome, please contact our support team.

Important points when contacting us

  • We can provide support for [Scenarios] with up to 200 steps. For [Scenarios] with over 200 steps, we may refuse to investigate why the test failed.
  • If you would like to contact us about a failed test, please do so from the [Get Support] button in the error details section at the top of the screen. This will send us the information necessary to investigate the issue, and the investigation process will be smoother. Please do not use the Contact Us button at the bottom right.
