In manual E2E testing (end-to-end testing), your entire software product is tested "by hand" from start to finish. Based on real user scenarios, a holistic verification of functionality takes place. For this purpose, we at valantic like to work with detailed test plans. In some cases, exploratory tests are used, in which test case design, test execution and product development run in parallel.
We would be happy to tell you exactly how this works and what the advantages of this approach are.
The goal of manual E2E testing is to test the software with structured test cases from the end user’s perspective. This ensures that the software meets the acceptance criteria and thus complies with the expected user behavior. This is accomplished by dividing the project to be tested into different test scenarios – for instance, limit analysis, edge cases or error cases.
What are the potential risks of not performing manual E2E tests?
But who designs the manual test cases? And who executes them and ensures that new features meet all relevant acceptance criteria? Good news: Our dedicated test team does this and more every day!
We write test cases so that all conceivable scenarios (happy path, error cases & edge cases) are tested. We execute these test cases and create detailed error reports. And if you like, we can support you throughout the entire testing process with strategic consulting.
Not only happy paths are tested but also crucial error cases and edge cases.
Errors in the layout or in user handling are uncovered.
Under certain circumstances, errors are also found that are not directly related to the user story.
Manual testing makes a 4-eyes principle possible, which is conducive to quality assurance.
The scope or focus of the test can be changed and adapted very quickly.
Compared to automated testing, manual testing usually results in faster acceptance.
