How do we use Playwright?

We generate & host Playwright tests you can run in parallel to whatever legacy framework you use.
The generated plain Playwright test code is yours. Download it and use locally if you wish.  
We use Playwright trace viewer to help you understand the issue when a test failed.

Playwright in Octomind end-to-end tests

We generate the interaction chain of the test case using AI.  A corresponding Playwright code is created on the fly and executed against your pull request, manual trigger or when scheduled. The plain Playwright code can be downloaded and used locally.

For debugging, we use Playwright Trace Viewer to help you understand the issue when a test failed. 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 cover?

Not sure where to start? Let AI have a look at your app and discover tests to cover your critical flows.
Playwright test code is generated automatically based on AI interacting with the app.  
test hosting
We host and run the Playwright tests. Schedule test runs, trigger manually or from your CI/CD.
parallel execution
Do not wait for slow test suite to finish. We run in parallel. However big your test suite, we’ll run it under 20 minutes.
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 machine against your local dev environment.
Use Playwright trace viewer and Debugtopus to run tests locally for easier debugging.
Not familiar with selectors and DOM elements? Select elements in your page visually.
For improved security, you can log in to Octomind using one time password.
VPN tunneling
Keep your secure, encrypted connection. We can run your Octomind tests in a private network.
Slack integration
Not a fan of PR comments? We can send test results from your test runs to Slack.
set-up and teardown
Are your test case more complex and require set-up data? We got you covered.
When you change your UI, test code adapts to the new user flow. No need to rewrite broken tests.
flakiness prevention
We understand why tests fail. We deploy strategies to mitigate flakiness. AI will become one of them.
test grouping
When test suits grow, getting a quick overview becomes difficult. We are doing something about it.
