Pros: I like the usability of the Provar Application. It is very easy to learn the different features the application has and how they are used.
Cons: The small issue I kept running into is a License Validation issue. So basically every time the Provar support team sent us a new project (with the completed test scripts) and I tried loading the project into Provar I would receive this License Validation Issue. However, they would fix the issue very quickly.
Overall: I would rate the overall experience with the Provar Consulting team as great. They were very helpful every time I had a question and would compete the assigned test scenario's in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend using the consultancy support for new users.
Pros: + no coding, pretty much all can be done functionally (drag-and-drop, point-and-click, etc.)
+ integration with Salesforce, so we can use API testing (e.g. create/update Object XXX with fields A, B and C)
+ software (library/jar files) can be installed in a Repository and scripts can be run remotely
Cons: - Software is in development; so a couple of things need to be optimized, e.g., not clicking twice on button to save/pull changes
Overall: Overall experience is very positive. We used Provar to automate Regression tests and run them automatically on a daily basis. Business and testers are very happy because now no manual testing is required. The whole set can be triggered at any time: for instance before and after Sprint release or Go Live.
Pros: The ability to automate and track the automated testing of a complex multi product environment to create a reliable product was key for us. Provar provides the tools and capabilities to test both on Salesforce and on Heroku giving us real business use case coverage across both interrelated platforms from our web front ends on Nodejs to our backend in Apex on Salesforce.
Cons: Takes a little bit of time to bring the team up to speed and get the automation in place, but the time invested has provided a startling ROI
Overall: As a software product house, Provar was brought in to allow us to automatically test our full business use cases in a complex multi-tiered environment. We have achieved complete coverage of our product running automated testing every day across the whole suite driving higher quality, more reliable and and overall a better product.
Pros: 1. Quick and easy to build Scripts without a need to learn any Programming language
2. Minimal Maintenance and works great for both New functionality and Regression Testing.
3. User friendly and Readable Test case makes it easier for Manual Tester
4. Integration with Tool like Jenkins, Github and ALM etc gives a lot of credibility to the Provar.
Cons: Reporting can be improved. I know they have come up with the manage package reporting but Reporting on the test failure can be better.
Overall: The tool has really come off age in the past one year and being able to up the standard and maintain it give us lot of confidence about Provar Team commitment and tool sustainability
Pros: Ability to run in ANT mode, metadata recognition, access to new releases, support response if contact direct is decent, help is much better and continues to improve. We used to have biweekly calls, which were helpful.
Cons: Releases often break our mappings etc, for a long time no support was available in the US. Even now, contacts change very often, early mac support was bad, support site ticket response is poor.
Pros: Simplicity. Provar simplifies the ability to automate an application. The Test APIs come in extremely handy.
Cons: Inconsistent failure of test cases or test steps. Some test steps just keep failing for no reason. Once I rerun the step without making changes, it then runs successfully.
Pros: Customer Support part is very strong. I have been working with rep for last one year and he is very helpful. Provar is easier to learn than Selenium coding.
Cons: This is desktop application. It wold be better if we could use it in a cloud platform. Also, this not always work as expected.
Pros: 1. Ease of drag and drop to build our logic
2. No coding is required to do basic validation
3. Awesome customer support
4. Ant lib: Easy CI integration
5. Enable us to write custom logic to build our own custom Provar api
Cons: This tool should work without admin access, the tool should not be expecting the users have Admin access (Modify all) to run their automation script or build scripts
Pros: Usability.day one you can start automation without coding. Very good provar support team to help you out.
Cons: Page object when field is not identified . Maintenance after few iteration in the sandbox . Support from India team bit delay due to time difference.
Overall: Easy automation
Pros: The most liked feature is just do configuration rather than coding. This tool provides lot of features which are integrated and as a automation engineer we need not to go for other integrations.
Cons: There are not enough built-in functions. Provar should provide 'Maven' as another build tool along with Ant.
