QAOPS - QA Testing in a DevOps World

QAOps is Continuous Testing Strategies when
frequent software delivery matters.

It is no surprise that automation and orchestration
make life very easy, be it a small organization or
a large-scale industry that houses hundreds of
servers. IT automation is essentially the ability to
orchestrate and integrate tools,
people, and processes through a certain workflow. I will be using Ansible and Docker to showcase the same and writing ansible tests on top of that.

Ansible - Ansible is an IT automation tool which can configure systems, deploy software, and orchestrate more advanced IT tasks such as continuous deployments. Ansible is actually designed to be a “fail-fast” and ordered system, therefore it makes it easy to embed testing directly in Ansible playbooks.

Docker - A docker container is a lightweight, stand-alone, executable package of a piece of software that includes everything needed to run it: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries, settings. Containers isolate software from its surroundings, for example differences between development and staging environments and help reduce conflicts between teams running different software on the same infrastructure.

 
 

Outline/Structure of the Demonstration

Firstly, would talk about QAOPS and then demonstration of Ansible setup followed by Docker setup(Container) and then running Ansible tests in top of both.

Learning Outcome

After this session people will be able to start working on testing/ setup of the OPS part using tools like Ansible and Docker.

Target Audience

Who so ver having basic knowledge of infra/ devops.

    Srinivasan Sekar / Sai Krishna - Code Once Test Anywhere: On Demand Private Appium Device Cloud using ATD

    45 Mins
    Case Study
    Beginner

    Mobile Test Automation is increasingly becoming very important. Almost all web applications are responsive these days and it's very important to test how the application works across devices. The same is true with the native application as well. At the same time, the number of devices and the custom OS versions on devices are also vast. This means that it's harder for a tester to manually run the automated tests over a list of devices to get device coverage and quicker results over every feature development.

    We came up with a solution of executing tests in distributed or parallel fashion across remote devices from anywhere in the network using Appium Test Distribution. Same framework is officially used by Appium members for Beta testing of Appium.

    USP of ATD over other Market Solutions:

    • Device Cloud:
      • Setup Devices anywhere within a network, ATD executes remotely without Grid
      • Never worry about device location in network.
    • Plug and Play:
      • Connect your android/iOS devices or Emulators/Simulators and just execute tests.
    • Multiple TestRunner:
      • TestNG and Cucumber
    • Parallel Test Execution:
      • Runs across all connected iOS, Android real devices and Simulators/Emulators
    • Test Coverage:
      • Parallel(Run entire suite across all devices, which gives device coverage)
      • Distribute(Run tests across devices to get faster feedback).
    • Device Management:
      • Manage devices remotely using Device Manager.
    • Reporting:
      • Covers detailed crashes logs from Android and iOS.
      • Appium Servers logs
      • Screenshots on Failures and On Demand Video logs
      • Reporting Trends for multiple builds
    • Manual Access to Remote Devices - OpenSTF support

    Demonstration
    Intermediate

    Application monitoring is the essential part for a heathy application. In the present scenario most of the applications are inclining towards cloud infrastructure. A reliable application has a deep desire to achieve 100% up-time. Tools like NewRelic , AppNeta , AppDynamics are great for server side monitoring.

    But most of the time we ignore client side application heath check. This session is dedicated to the requirement and fixing of Client side application monitoring. There are very less tools available in market for Client side monitoring which can run 24X7 in the production web application and report an issue without any manual interference’.

    To achieve client side monitoring I developed a Monitoring tool using Java Spring, AngularJS, MongoDB as a dashboard tool which is in continuous work from more than 1 year.

    This tool shows real-time status of the different panels of the application. Any time if a panel goes down due to any back-end or front-end failure an email triggers with the application screenshot and a proper error message. This dashboard is monitoring application 24X7 and capable enough to calculate up-time of individual web panel and complete application.

    Here Selenium Webdriver crawls the production application and gather browser network tab information and submit it to the dashboard.

    100000 tests executed under half an hour - sounds like a myth? Well, we made it, and I'm going to tell you a story how we got there. Through surveys, we discovered that many companies desire to utilize the benefits from parallel tests execution to optimize their software development process. However, they struggle with the process. Lack of available tooling, documentation, tests data arrangement/deletion, handling E2E tests specifics like browsers, emulators, etc. We were one of this companies. Because of that, we created an open-source tool for the job. Throughout the presentation, you will find statistics where, depending on the type of the tests, the tests execution can speed up from 4- 40 times which makes the run of the 100000 tests possible for 27 minutes.

    It will be shown how to utilize the tool, its various features and where/when it is appropriate to use it. Also, you will find example solutions to most of the common challenges in executing tests in parallel. We believe that in the near future the parallel tests execution will be a necessity, much like unit tests or continuous integration now. This will be one of the pillars for the companies to improve their competitiveness and effectiveness.

    Autonomous cars were a Scifi dream not 10 years ago. A computer driving a car? No way. But it did happen, and is happening. And if scientists do it for a complicated task such as driving, can they do it for automated regression testing? In this talk we explore what is being done in the field today, but also speculate about the future: we introduce the 6 levels of autonomous testing (that correspond to the 5 levels of autonomous driving), and try and figure out what kind of help current AI techniques can bring to automated testing.

    DevOps is not just a strong implementation of agile processes and principles, but it is more of a culture built upon trust among the stakeholders involved in developing and delivering the software. DevOps focuses on reducing the friction among teams aligning their work efforts in getting the product to quickly reach the customers. This is achieved by automating the development and deployment tools, allowing accelerated delivery. We can clearly see the significance and involvement of development and operations team here but, people often find it difficult to picture where the QA team plays its part.

    Image-DevOps

    In a real-world, quality assurance is a continuous activity of implementing processes, procedures, and standards to ensure that an organization is providing the best possible product or service to the customer, and it happens at every single instance in the form of continuous testing.

    Image-QA in DevOps

    We perform various types of tests to make sure the delivered software meets the quality standards on a functional, usability and performance basis (categorized on a high level). And to contribute to the agility of DevOps where the focus is to deliver faster, it is hard to ignore the fact that: “it’s easy to deliver things quickly, but delivering quality things quickly is difficult”. In order to speed things up, a quality analyst relies on test automation.

    Image-Leveraging Test Automation

    To unleash the real power of test automation (test execution/ run), we can leverage the cloud with the right blend of open-source tools. In the presentation, a demonstration on a test automation skeleton built on Robot Framework will be given, which leverages docker containers placed on the cloud platform (AWS). This test automation skeleton automates web apps, mobile apps (native & hybrid) in headless mode utilizing the Selenium & Appium libraries in a CI /CD mode.

    Docker can be used to containerize Selenium tests and can be made to run against applications in another container. These tests can be further run on Selenium grid without the need of physical machines or VMs using Docker Selenium. Multiple and different versions of browsers, headless mode etc can be run inside containers and can be used to run tests in parallel. All these can be achieved with minimal changes to the existing Selenium tests.

    Shivaling Sannalli - Unify service and UI layer Automation - BDD way

    90 Mins
    Workshop
    Intermediate

    Software delivery is switching towards business driven development. This needs capturing requirements as presented by clients and translating these requirements into development tasks and tests.

    Clients want visibility on the quality of the requirements that are captured. Quality in the delivery of the project measured using the test pyramid — heavy unit tests, more integration and service layer tests, and fewer UI tests. Test pyramid is the ideal quality structure for Agile projects.

    In this presentation/session we will focus on how we can combine both service layer tests and UI layer tests in a BDD(Behavior Driven Development) way of Automation. That will bring test coverage visibility to business. Clients themselves can run this suite without having to understand technicalities of the implementation. Test scenarios will exactly be the requirements captured by business as behaviors.

    To accomplish BDD way of automation for both service layer automation and UI layer we will use following tools/libraries:

    BDD Tool: Gauge or Cucumber (both are open source)

    Service layer Automation : Unirest for JAVA

    UI layer Automation : Selenium WebDriver for JAVA

    Talk Description Automation provides an immense amount of value in preventing regressions and helping to deliver quality software. As an organization’s automation grows and grows, it requires continuous maintenance so that tests remain fast, reliable, and valuable. If not scaled efficiently, an organization’s automation suite will turn into a messy, uncontrollable beast. Having a lean test suite will help to combat this. In this session will present methods to keep automated test suites lean and mean, so they always provide quick and accurate feedback to the software delivery team. Using a few examples, she will discuss a wide range of ideas including evaluating a test's value, parallelizing tests, and producing consistent results. Session attendees will walk away with strategies and practices to scale their test automation over time in a highly efficient and maintainable way.

    Intermediate

    We have come to a place where we run our selenium tests on pipelines every day.
    Now are these tests confined to test only the functionality of the application?
    No, we can use this tests to do much more. Let's test security with those same tests.

    Turn your selenium tests in to Security tests, get security testing in to your CI pipelines just by tweaking a bit of the selenium integration suite. Find and report security issues that exists which can be caught way before paying off for it.
    In this Demo we will introduce a framework that will help your selenium tests turn into security tests and run on pipelines.
    With ZAP API + selenium and CI pipelines, find security issues on the application see a red or green security pipeline. Not just that fetch the reports and take necessary actions on every build.
    The talk covers different ways that ZAP tests the web application for security(automated with selenium tests). We will see what all of them can be integrated with selenium and can make most out the suite.
    As an add we will see how your API can be tested for security using ZAP API :)

    Tools used:
    1. Selenium Web driver framework.
    2. ZAP framework integrated with selenium framework.
    3. GO (for CI/CD)
    4. Maven for building and fetching reports.

    Zaplenium simply means ZAP + Selenium and named after the integration of both to ensure application security while it's being developed. ZAP provide client API's that help to capture URL's by spidering and scanning over the pages those are interacted in user flows. With ZAPlenium the tests can be targeted to certain areas of application where selenium helps in navigating to those areas and target ZAP to spider over those and scan them. Also, Zaplenium will help defining the assertions those can come handy while we integrate this in CI/CD pipelines.

    Participants will be able to define security sanity suite to their build pipelines. With code change the security can be tapped for any High, Medium and Low risks. Session will make use of open source technologies i.e. OWASP ZAP and Selenium to define tests with assertion.
