About the Client

The client is a social e-commerce website that offers an online collection of brand-centric women’s merchandise including jewelry, handbags, cosmetics, and home décor. The client’s business is inspired by a Japanese shopping concept fukubukuro, or ”lucky bag sale,” in which a shopper purchases a mystery bag filled with fashion products and trades the items online with their friends. These shoppers take an interactive quiz and are offered a personalized mystery bag filled with women’s beauty products and accessories.

Business Challenge

The client wanted to build an automation suite to test their e-commerce application in order to increase test coverage, improve accuracy, and decrease time and effort involved in performing manual testing. However they faced challenges, as the application could not be tested using pre-defined test data. The application’s business logic is based on the stock of products available online for buying and trading and the client needed to automate the system dynamically. Their requirements included:

  • Automate critical scenarios for regression testing
  • Integrate a test management and bug-tracking tool within the automation tool to update and track test results
  • Open case logs using the tracking tool for failed instances
  • Run the test suite using the continuous integration tool, which can be scheduled to run for regression testing
