Simplest and best automation tool using machine learning for testing
This is one of the simplest tools for software testing purpose.
It helps to automate web browsers like Selenium IDE and Selenium WebDriver and other such automation tools.
mabl is a really great platform as it is lightweight and a simple browser plugin that does the work. No heavy sized software download, even though a great tool.
It is the only automation tool recently built that has an outstanding feature that I personally love the most and can benefit most organizations if used in the correct manner. The feature of auto-healing using machine learning concepts, as it helps the automation scripts to run even if there is a big UI change in the product code.
This tool doesn't require any tester or developer to know to code and can write scriptless code by simply fetching data based on the user's actions performed.
Once the journey and plans are ready, it is really simple to execute them and trigger them in a timely fashion.
It provide great visuals and monitors anomalies too! It keeps a track of network spikes and tracks performance of the platform.
It has the functionality to trigger mails to concerned people via Slack and mail integrations.
Any bugs encountered can be easily handled and can be synced with tools like Bamboo, JIRA, Jenkins, etc.
I would personally recommend people to use this as it is THE CUTTING EDGE TOOL for future generations.
I signed up for the product and got an instant demo from Preston, a test automation specialist at mabl, who did a wonderful job!
No cons presently, just loving the tool. I would really prefer if the tool was free of cost (open source) like Selenium and other automation tools. Life would be in our pockets and we would be called the AUTOMATION BOSSES of mabl using Machine learning.
Young Automation souloution with great potential
What attracted us was the self healing plugin and also the ease of creating new tests for our colleagues without programming knowledge.
Although the design looked really new and flashy it was hard to find what you need at first, especially while being in the tutorial.
I do think however that if they focus on making the test creation even easier and more reliable (through self helaing or whatever else) that they do have a great chance on the automation market!
Ultimately we didnt choose them since my old company didnt want to invest a lot of money into QA.
The Tutorial should help you create all your needed basic tests and is helping you run them periodically with suggestions.
A fresh UI and design approach.
At first everything was a bit overwhelming, even though there was a tutorial. I wanted to check something so i exited one exercise and wasnt able to get back into it later.
Getting the local tunnel to work was really stressfull, i didnt find or overlook the info that java11 was needed and the support people didnt have a clue that you need a specific version so we wasted almost our whole trial with getting that to work. To be fair it was prolonged after i contacted them though!
Better alternative for Selenium/Cucumber.
1. Didn't break due to minor UI changes
2. Managing journeys, plans and their scheduling was easy
3. IP whitelisting, server authentications were very useful
1. Many of the broken links were found. Again, there were no info about response time, request timeout duration, number of attempts made to open the links and status codes received.
2. There is no exclusion list for links which need not be checked for its correctness
3. It didn't identify the model pop-ups on click of a link as it was expecting a page
4. Not enough info on JS error/exceptions
Simple, yet powerful
Previously, with our selenium-based framework tests would take too long to write and maintain, which made it impossible to develop new e2e tests within sprints for the new features we were developing. With Mabl, we can quickly write tests so that we have UI automation coverage within the same sprint for new features.
Mabl has become the go-to for our e2e testing needs. Creation and maintenance of tests has become a breeze. Test failure investigation is quicker than before with detailed screenshots and HAR captures.
Mabl is not always able to handle tricker elements in our UI, which requires us to write custom JS steps or reach to to their support. Also, run-time of our tests is slower than our previous selenium-based tests.
Exactly what my company was looking for - but have a dev help set up tests
We do frequent deployments of our web software, and this *finally* lets us build a library of regression tests in a user-friendly fashion... without relying on home-grown Selenium/Behat/Mink nightmares.
I love the ability to capture journeys with the Trainer... it's a brilliant tool that makes setup incredibly fast. Also love the automatic regression testing, though that's created some "false alarms" for us in the past.
1) It still requires a bit of web engineering background to set up *proper* tests. A tech-minded product manager may be able to create some basic "is the site up"-type tests, but nothing involving variables, authentication, etc.
2) Unless I'm missing something, variables don't seem to persist across journeys... which would be very useful. We create users on one web application, and then process them in another - so it'd be good to "follow" them through the entire workflow.
The future of automated front end testing
Absolutely amazing tool and I personally believe it is the future of automated GUI testing. This tool will save software engineering teams many hours that has previously been spent on maintaining and debugging failing GUI tests.
So easy to use. Simple record and playback
Has the option to go into more advanced assertions
Great cross browser support
Extremely stable tests
The AI approach to adaptive assertions on tests
Still quite new so some features are not there yet.
Otherwise they are faultless for me
mabl has the potential to become valuable partner to tech community
easy to record user actions, easy to run in cloud
I tried using mabl for a week and I found it useful in below way
- easy to record, playback user scenarios
- can do complex user interactions
- cloud based execution
- built in AI
- great customer support from all the members in company
- support for only few browsers
- slowness in test execution
- customization and scripting of recorded user scenarios
- many usability issues
I found MABL to be a solid ML based testing tool - set up basic test/checks.
Automated testing with very little configuration, out of the box validations, lots of depth and customization options.
The automatic execution is nice - not having to set up triggers and timers manually is appreciated. The ML aspect is interesting, and hopefully I can dig into this a little more in the near future. I would like to use this for service testing as well as UI based scripts.
Nothing so far, all worked well! I would like to dig into the validation rules a little bit more and see what depth of testing is supported, as well as options for custom scripts (import Cucumber script etc.)
Really promising product that will surely be a gold standard tool in the future
Not too many at the moment, but that is largely due to the organisation I work for.
A few more features and this would be a crucial tool in my QA team's armoury.
The automated nature of it. This takes away the very expensive part of maintaining a UI automation suite.
Intuitive UI that is easy to understand with minimal instruction.
There are still a few gaps in functionality.
Does Not work with all websites, especially older GUI's
Can only train in Chrome along with only supporting Chrome and Firefox for now
Getting better all the time
Some solid time savers in here. There could definitely be some work done on the UI to distinction between all the other packagaged automation systems to improve usability and intuitiveness but overall a solid start.
It has the same or similar features as many of the other packages out there. Let's see some innovation. Let's see some of the stuff we all wish the other packages had.
Finally, a tool that lives up to the hype and its ability to reduce automation maintenance overhead!
Easy to use.
There are still some tests we can not port into mabl due to reliance on external systems (the ability to reach out from the system and affect an event outside of our application). For example, verify the receipt and contents of an email sent FROM our web application out to a test recipient inbox. We've given feedback to mabl to get our desired features onto the roadmap.
Preeminent ML-driven test automation solution
Saves a lot of time as well as not having to have a developer spend countless hours every week doing the drudgery work which mabl takes care of for us.
Easiest end-to-end machine learning driven test automation solution available which got us up and running on all of our apps. We just love getting the daily and informative emails keeping us all up to date on any new findings. Just an awesome app and I highly recommend anyone and everyone to quickly install mabl and let mabl run it's magic for your apps.
The only con we have seen so far is that the reported bad links includes a small subset of links that are not currently relevant, i.e. the links were valid at one time, but are not currently valid. But the report picks them up as broken which they are so it would be great if such links could easily be masked until they are re-used at some point in the future.
Useful test automation tool for monitoring website performance and checking broken links
Learned about a new and easy to use web monitoring tool which provides easy access to UI tests with with little setup time, but provides long term reporting on issues with an app.
Mabl provides a very straightforward user interface to set up an automated test which can perform smoke tests like checking all of the links on a page and report back all of the broken links. The learning curve is very small, so you can set up a new test in production in less than 10 minutes having never used the app before. It will send out a report by e-mail at your preferred interval with the test execution status, time, run time, pages checked, links checked and broken links.
It is quite bare bones as it is, if you already have complex API tests in Postman, Selenium IDE and Java/C# tests Jenkins, then Using Mabl in addition to these would really be nothing more than a novelty. Because your current unit tests and CI smoke tests probably provide ample code coverage. I would imagine the value from the mabl tests are aimed at a novice user with zero development background who needs basic website monitoring. Because you could probably get this data and more details on page exceptions from a tool like Datadog, Bugsnag or Kibana or Kubernetes. I would imagine that future iterations of the product will probably be more feature rich in these areas.
mabl has been solid for me in the brief time that I've used it.
One of the ways by which I use mabl is for crawling pages, to look for broken links. mabl does an outstanding job of doing that, as well as reporting what it finds.
I also like the mabl staff. They are very forthcoming in touching base with their user base to solicit feedback, answer questions, etc. Super responsive as well, which is huge for me, as when I evaluate tools for consideration, no matter how good they may be, if the customer service is bad, it's a deal breaker. You will not have that bad experience with mabl.
Very solid documentation as well, which is not always the case with new companies. They are constantly updating it, as things change and/or new features are added.
I would love to see the ability to schedule runs at selected days, times, etc. Also, what I hope is forthcoming from mabl, is the ability to tunnel into private test environments.
Overall, my experience has been positive. I recommend this product.
A rapid automated testing has allowed us to fix issues that were caused during the development of other features of the platform.
The ability to set up test cases without writing a single line of code is incredible. Their ML approach is the key.
Haven't found anything to not like as of yet. So far it meets our company's needs, it makes our testing process much quicker and automated.
Very promising next generation tool for web application testing
The auto-heal feature and the ability of the tool to traverse the entire application without much configuration.
The ability to modify and design test scripts. The mabl trainer can be little finicky and it is not very easy to delete and modify steps. Mabl trainer can use some improvements to its user interface.
This is a groundbreaking tool with the potential to seriously reduce automation UI maintenance
Found it a very good testing software having all the basic functionalities covered. price worthy.
Good and easy to use environment.
Have major testing functionalities.
Quick feedback and suggestion service.
I din't find any thing yet which seems least liking about this software. At first when it doesn't support multiple browsers that was the thing which hit me that what if I want to test on multi browser. but now it supports multi browsers too.
mabl is easy to use for website testing and interface is very good
able to record the website and check for the images or broken links.
1.Easy to use , not much complicated workflow.
2.Recording is easy and the errors are highlighted well to followup.
3.help document is thorough
1.Tool is slow to load the scripts
2.Failed cases not explaining exactly why it fails
3.Unable to inter-grate with testcases
It is a fabulous automation tool which helps testing ease
Friendly User Interface.
Auto test case generation.
Test execution scheduling which is hectic job in other automation tools.
Enabling local testing helps lot more partners to join.
Better Test data management will help run the data driven tests
Very good application in fast changing world of testing.
We've only run a few simple tests, and mabl has been a pleasure to use.
It is still a young product, and does not have all of teh flexibility and functionality of the more mature options.
Mabl is a very innovative idea and it makes testing not stink
Personally, I hate writing test automation and this makes it way easier. Tests no longer become brittle over time and Mabl adapts to changing UIs. It's also super easy to implement into your CI/CD pipeline.
Initially I struggled with getting it to test web apps behind corporate firewalls but this was fixed when I could whitelist the Mabl IP addresses. The UI takes a bit of getting used to as well in terms of navigation.
Easy to set up, the recorder is great
Being able to record your actions and then have it learn from those is great. It was easy to have the jobs run on a schedule or on a build
Little iffy on the pricing compared to a lot of open source software in this space plus your choice of CI tool. I think if they can make it easy to apply to complicated products and tie into a larger codebase it could be really interesting
Smart automated testing
mabls daily execution of tests and use of machine learning have helped me better understand which tests are most helpful in assessing the usability of my company's web-based software products.
Insights are given on each test that is ran, the UI is nice on the eyes and easy to navigate. Getting up and running tests on mabl is painless and quick. The customization of tests and trainer is fairly easy to use. Test metrics are reported in a beautiful layout, and issues are easy to spot.
Like any automation software, once you start building out a test plan in their system, you become locked in and dependent on them for running tests. But the time that it saves compared to building up an automation suite from scratch using open source software might be worth the price.
