Continuous Testing Platform Visualizes and Manages Tests, Data, & the Environment

Parasoft Continuous Testing Platform (CTP) provides easy visualization of your test environments and dependencies with graphical diagrams. The web-based interface allows teams to plan and collaborate testing activities and provision virtual environments.

New release: Version 2021.2 is now available!

Make Testing More Manageable With
Parasoft Continuous Testing Platform

Customize Your Test Environment

Build the right environment for your testing needs. Parasoft Continuous Testing Platform will provision real and virtual services, inject realistic test data, configure performance characteristics, and execute the right test cases, all on demand, or as a part of your CI/CD pipeline.

Collaborate Across the Team

Easily orchestrate test execution plans that enable team collaboration. See the components involved in an end-to-end flow, and ensure each test flow has the correct data sources and endpoints to enable seamless cross-environment execution.

Eliminate Testing Roadblocks

Create and manage virtual assets to mitigate downstream dependencies for continuous testing. Switch between real and multiple virtual states within a single test environment. There's no need to reprovision a test environment for every test session.

Reproduce Defects Faster

If a test fails, recreate the test environment with the click of a button to reproduce the failing test case in exactly the same environment configuration, accelerating the process of defect remediation.

Create & Reuse Tests

Initial API tests can be quickly built, then extended into complex end-to-end functional test scenarios to leverage for early-stage load/performance testing and security testing.

Assess the Impact of Change

Proactively scan your virtual services and test cases and, when a service changes, view a change template to update your test artifacts. Run a Change Impact Analysis to see how a potential change will affect your test artifact repository.

Coordinate Test Cases

Artifact Repository

Manage a library of test cases, virtual services, test data, and technology extensions.

Sequence Responders

Configure pre-defined responses for repeated requests to simplify complex service behavior.

Test Execution

Execute preconfigured jobs automatically as a part of your CI/CD pipeline.

Environment Manager

Unite your test cases and virtual services to create an environment that can be executed continuously.

Parasoft Continuous Testing Platform Capabilities

Parasoft Continuous Testing Platform provides deep insights into all areas of functional testing, ensuring delivery of quality software. CTP delivers extensive capabilities, including:

Access a holistic view of the functional testing process at the system level: from environments and components all the way to service endpoints. Parasoft Continuous Testing Platform alerts users about environment issues when processes malfunction, so they can drill down and find the root cause.

Clearly diagram interdependencies between real and virtual components in the entire test environment so architects, developers, and testers are on the same page. View and manage relationships between the application under test, backend services, and third-party APIs for clearer understanding of environment topology.

Capture, manage, share, and repurpose realistic test data, reducing data friction and enabling better testing. Using an intuitive web-based interface, CTP presents data as a model that is easy to understand, manipulate, mask, and extend through data generation, thereby simplifying the process of creating safe test data.

On-demand provisioning of test environments (live and virtual services) enables automated tests to run continuously. Clone and automatically reconfigure all virtual assets connected to a reusable test environment. Parasoft CTP easily replicates your environment into an independent test sandbox.

Save test execution job reports in the Continuous Testing Platform database so you can easily go back and review pass/fail history with full error messages. Thorough documentation helps with compliance audits.

Enable monitoring on components in your environment to log and view traffic events with the ability to create virtual assets from received messages. View events such as request messages sent, response messages received, and more.

How Does Parasoft Continuous Testing Platform Help?

Development Managers

Access a high-level view of the status and availability of test environments, so you can evaluate the testing progress and update release dates accordingly.

Developers

Remove bottlenecks by quickly spinning up virtual assets based on API specifications and attaching those assets to your development environment.

QA Testers

Orchestrate a large number of test assets with database-indexed global search. Accelerate the testing process by provisioning virtual test data and services when you need them.
