PeopleSoft Testing Framework (PTF) is an underutilized, key feature of PeopleTools that can accelerate your testing cycle. The PTF is a testing tool that stores all records, fields, pages, menus and components directly into your PeopleSoft environment and can be used for the recording/playback of test scripts across multiple environments. It can record and store a log of the playback results to the database for tracking and analysis.
Over the years, BTRG has accumulated hundreds of test scripts across a range of tools, databases, excel sheets and third party systems. Our challenges were always making these scripts available to our clients to kick-start and accelerate their testing cycles. Our solution was to pre-package these scripts into the PTF and make them available.
The BTRG test scripts packaged into the PTF tool enables your organization to repeat identical tests across all environments. It allows you to streamline the efficiency and effectiveness of your PeopleSoft application for future upgrades, patch applications and regression testing. We see a reduction in test preparation time, reduction in overall testing cycles, ability to quickly generate repeatable tests across multiple environments, and increased accuracy and effectiveness of the entire testing cycle.
