Enable Continuous Operation of Your
Business-Critical Applications

When you’re working with Salesforce, you can quickly implement and deliver new and exciting functionality, but it also quickly becomes difficult to perform reliable testing against the rapidly changing applications. One small update can affect your entire test sequence, making manual testing impractical and introducing instability and maintenance headaches into your automated testing process.

Your primary goal is to make sure your low-code application doesn’t break — whether from a UI modification or changes in your Apex code to implement a custom workflow. The only way to keep up with the accelerated development is to implement automated testing as a best practice. Manual testing is error prone and just can’t keep up.

Testing Salesforce applications involves an in-depth and multi-level approach. Comprehensive automated testing ensures that you meet business goals and reap the benefits of your Salesforce application. With Parasoft you can easily build a solid test automation strategy.

Automated UI testing tends to be brittle due to the complexities of Salesforce UIs and the frequent UI changes, requiring constant attention to ensure test suites are stable and up to date. Traditional approaches either leave you to figure out Selenium on your own or lock you into a proprietary testing platform that doesn’t meet the needs of your broader team. Parasoft simplifies Selenium script creation with Salesforce-specific locator and wait condition strategies and eliminates the maintenance headaches — ensuring you have a scalable test automation strategy that fits the needs of the entire team.

Testing at the UI level is critical to ensure your user experience is working, but it takes too long to execute the entire test suite and run through all your data permutations. Combining UI testing with API testing gives you a way to easily create and run scalable and maintainable automated tests for your Salesforce applications. Continuous testing gives you immediate feedback on changes made in your sandboxes, removing the tedium of manual testing while reducing overall testing time and cost.

Your Salesforce application isn’t implemented in isolation. You need to get data from other enterprise systems and leverage data from Salesforce into other applications. This introduces complexities within your test environments, and you run the risk of hitting your API limits. Parasoft provides service virtualization so you can eliminate these constraints, decoupling your test environments and providing the team with ultimate control of their test environment.

Implement Test Automation to Keep Your Applications Running Smoothly

Whether you’re working with Salesforce Classic or migrating to Salesforce Lightning, you need to thoroughly test against the low-code enterprise application environment. Parasoft takes away the guesswork by using artificial intelligence to capture all the necessary steps and create accurate and maintainable tests to verify your code’s functionality and usability.

Parasoft’s Salesforce testing solution enables enterprise customers to support business-critical processes, allowing them to conduct automated interface discovery, test creation and execution, and analytics and documentation of cross-application workflows. Parasoft makes end-to-end functional and nonfunctional testing easy for less technical users while also providing in-depth capabilities for advanced users.

Automate Testing for Salesforce Applications

Achieve ROI Goals

Your business has important ROI goals associated with the investment made in the Salesforce platform. It’s up to you to ensure your team creates successful low-code applications using good tools and processes. Parasoft solutions uniquely provide the capabilities you need to reduce the time, effort, and maintenance costs associated with Salesforce application testing.

Save Time and Effort

When testing Salesforce applications, you want to get it done as quickly as possible with minimal effort. Test automation is more efficient and scalable than manual testing, but UIs built with Salesforce have multiple frames and hidden elements that make it difficult to create stable and reusable UI tests. Parasoft solutions streamline UI testing to improve test execution, feedback, and maintenance.

Simplify Testing With AI

It usually takes more effort to thoroughly test low-code Salesforce applications, but it doesn’t have to be difficult. Test automation enhanced with artificial intelligence simplifies the process of creating comprehensive test scenarios. Parasoft’s AI-powered solutions provide in-depth functionality for technical users while also reducing the complexity of end-to-end functional and non-functional testing for less technical users.

Quickly Create Selenium UI Tests

Most teams start by manually testing the UIs for their Salesforce applications. While manual testers can efficiently verify primary application functionality, test automation is best suited for ongoing checks for regressions in changing UIs. With a simple Chrome plugin, Parasoft records manual UI interactions and builds pure Selenium tests using the Page Object Model for maximum ongoing maintainability.

Expand Test Coverage

To maximize test coverage and reduce risk for low-code enterprise application deliveries, go deeper with API testing. Parasoft assesses your system’s internals by simultaneously capturing API calls during web UI recordings. Parasoft’s AI constructs the traffic captured into a dynamic low-code API test scenario for both component and integration tests that are more reliable and maintainable, increasing your test coverage and delivering faster feedback on the quality of the application.

Control the Test Environment

Your Salesforce application isn’t an island. It may receive data from other corporate systems or other applications may be dependent on data from the enterprise platform. Connections to/from these platforms behave like a black box and application testing can easily be delayed if you’re unable to verify the interactions between these systems. Ensure that you can complete your testing on schedule by simulating any unavailable systems and services using service virtualization.
