Test Automation for Microsoft Dynamics 365: Rigorous testing after every release

Generate automated tests and data for Dynamics 365, rigorously testing applications after each and every release. Test Modeller makes automated testing as quick and simple as picking from a library of re-usable components, ensuring the reliability of fast-changing CRM and ERP systems.

Are regular releases leaving business-critical systems exposed?

The introduction of regular major releases for Microsoft Dynamics 365 brings new and valuable functionality to organizations more regularly. However, it presents a challenge for CRM and ERP testing, both of which remain largely manual. These slow and manual processes cannot keep up with the pace of regular releases, leaving business-critical systems exposed to costly bugs after each release. 

Each time a new release arrives, QA teams must assess its impact on customised Dynamics 365 applications. Testers must then check that existing test cases and data align with the updated system, before manually updating and re-executing the test suite. Faced with hundreds or thousands or tests, there is no time to test business-critical applications rigorously after each release. This risks unforeseen and damaging impacts on the CRM and ERP systems upon which businesses depend. A rigorous and reactive approach to Dynamics 365 testing is needed. 

5 Barriers to Successful Test Automation

Model-Based Test Automation for Dynamics 365

Test Modeller allows organisations to enjoy the value of regular Dynamics 365 releases, without the risk of damaging defects.  

Creating rigorous and automated tests for Dynamics 365 is as quick and simple as dragging-and-dropping blocks from a library of re-usable modules. This assembles intuitive flowcharts, and each out-of-the-box module comes equipped with the data needed to execute end-to-end user journeys through Dynamics 365 applications. Automated test case generation then applies mathematical coverage algorithms to generate the smallest set of tests needed to every positive and negative combination of logic. Executing the rigorous tests is as quick and easy as clicking “play”, removing the delays associated with both manual test creation and execution.

Test Modeller makes testing complex and custom applications possible, even when faced with regular releases. Each modelled screen or component in Dynamics 365 becomes a re-usable subflow. Creating end-to-end tests is therefore as simple as assembling the subprocesses visually, auto-generating the smallest set of tests needed for optimal coverage. A change made in the latest release only needs to be made to one visual model, and not across thousands of test cases and data. QA teams can quickly update the intuitive models, clicking execute for rapid and rigorously automated testing after each and every release.

Rapid and Rigorous Dynamics 365 Testing

Watch this short example of testing the sales module of a Microsoft Dynamics CRM, and discover how: 

  1.  Intuitive, drag-and-drop modelling rapidly builds flowchart models of Dynamics 365 applications, selecting from a library of re-usable components. 
  2. “Fast Modelling” automatically models the equivalence classes associated with each component, automatically tagging the data needed to execute end-to-end tests. 
  3. Automated test generation applies mathematical coverage algorithms to generate the smallest set of tests and data needed for rigorous Dynamics 365 testing. 
  4. Subflows remove the complexity of end-to-end testing, rapidly combining re-usable models and auto-generating a rigorous set of tests and data. 
  5. Test execution is as quick and simple as clicking “play”, detecting unforeseen impacts of a release before they can have a damaging impact on business-critical systems. 
  6. Updating the visual models automatically maintains all existing tests and data, rigorously testing customised Dynamics 365 applications within short iterations.
