Octomind automatically generates test case interaction chains using AI.  We create the corresponding Playwright code on the fly and execute it against your pull request, by manual trigger or when scheduled, based on your preference. The Playwright code is standard and can always be downloaded and used locally.

For debugging, we use Playwright Trace Viewer to help you understand issues when tests fail. Our open-source Debugtopus tooling lets you run the Playwright tests locally, so you can set breakpoints to step through the code.

what functionality do our end-to-end tests include?

auto-discovery
Getting started is quick and easy. Let AI have a look at your app and discover tests to cover your critical flows.
auto-generation
Playwright test code is generated automatically as our AI agent mimics a human user to navigate the app.
test hosting
We host and run the Playwright tests. You can schedule test runs, trigger manually or from your CI/CD.
parallel execution
We run tests in parallel to reduce the waiting.  We'll finish in 20 minutes or less, regardless of test suite size.
CI / CD
Easily integrate and run Octomind with GitHub, Azure, Jenkins, Vercel or via curl command.
local execution
Download the Playwright code and run our tests on your own machines against your local dev environment.
debugging
Use Playwright trace viewer and Debugtopus to run tests locally for easier debugging.
snapshots
Not familiar with selectors and DOM elements? Select elements in your page visually.
one-time-password
For improved security, you can log into Octomind using a one-time password.
VPN tunneling
To increase security, we can run your Octomind tests in a private network.
Slack integration
We can send test results from your test runs directly to Slack.
set-up and teardown
Do you have complex test cases that require set-up data? We got you covered.
COMING SOON
auto-fix
When you change UI, our tests will automatically adapt to the new user flow. No need to rewrite broken tests.
COMING SOON
flakiness prevention
We know the reasons tests fail and deploy strategies to mitigate flakiness. Including AI.
test grouping
When test suites grow, getting a quick overview becomes difficult. That's why we cluster tests cases into groups.
