Model-based ERP testing: How to test Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

Rigorous ERP testing after every release. Test Modeller automatically generates automated tests for Microsoft Dynamics 365, finding unforeseen impacts of system changes before they can impact critical business operations. 

Is your business relying on untested systems? 

Organisations today rely on Microsoft Dynamics 365 to manage critical Enterprise Resource Planning. Regular application updates provide these organisations with new and valuable functionality, but also present QA challenges. Testers must test ERP implications rigorously after each release, checking for unforeseen impacts on custom set-upsThis requires rapid automated testing, but a raft of manual processes can prevent rigorous testing after every release. Manual test execution often lingers as an alternative to slow and complex scripting, while QA teams struggle to identify the exact impact of release on their systems. Faced with hundreds or thousands of existing tests to maintain, QA teams have no time to test rigorously after every releaseleaving ERP systems exposed to damaging bugs.

Rigorously test Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations 

Test Modeller enables rapid and rigorous ERP test automation, maintaining the reliability of ERP systems after every release. A UI Scanner automatically generates identifiers and implementation code for automated testing, replacing time lost to repetitive and complex scripting. Generating optimised automated tests is then as quick and simple as assembling the scanned elements in visual flowcharts, applying coverage algorithms to create tests for all the modelled logic. Central rule libraries automatically model equivalence classes associated with each element, quickly building models for rigorous automated testing.

Test Modeller’s code generation engine uses custom templates to generate bespoke code for homegrown, commercial and open source frameworks. QA and business teams can simply hit “generate” to execute the optimised automated tests against Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. With each new release, updating the central flowchart models maintains the rigorous tests, ensuring that business-critical ERP systems continue delivering value and not bugs. 

Model-based ERP testing 

Watch this short guide to model-based testing for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, and discover how: 

  1. Test Modeller‘s UI Scanner automatically builds a library of re-usable automation components, selecting Dynamics 365 elements to create reliable identifiers and implementation code. 
  2. Visual drag-and-drop modelling rapidly builds automated tests for Dynamics 365 systems, seamlessly combining scanned elements with custom code if required. 
  3. A central library of rules automatically models data equivalence classes associated with each element, generating rigorous tests that identify bugs earlier and at less cost to fix. 
  4. Automated test generation creates the smallest set of tests needed to test the modelled logic, rigorously and rapidly testing fast-changing ERP systems. 
  5. Re-usable subprocesses take the time and complexity out of end-to-end testing, assembling visual models to generate optimised tests and data. 
  6. A high-speed code generation engine converts the models into bespoke automated tests for a range of scripted frameworks, avoiding repetitive test scripting to run tests in-sprint. 
  7. Test execution is as quick and simple as hitting “generate”, synchronising the automated tests with source control systems like Git and triggering CI/CD processes. 
  8. Updating the central models automatically maintains the existing tests and data, identifying any unforeseen impacts of a change before they can damage business critical ERP systems.
