mabl overview

What is mabl?

mabl is a test automation platform that helps software development teams create and run end-to-end testing across the entire CI/CD development lifecycle. Administrators can create reusable workflows to run common sequences across multiple tests, reducing time spent on repetitive tasks.

mabl's Google Chrome extension enables team members to create scriptless tests with advanced logic, such as assertions, conditional steps, loops, and variables. The PDF validation functionality lets staff members test PDF file content, capture screenshots, and detect visual changes. The cross-browser testing module allows quality analysts and developers to create and run tests on Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. It also provides insights into test failures and maintains a historical tests runs database, allowing team members to compare results and diagnose failures.

mabl comes with an API, which allows organizations to integrate the system with third-party applications, such as Slack, Jira, Bitbucket, and more. Administrators can configure white or dark UI themes, create multiple workspaces, and invite employees to collaborate on projects.

Simplest and best automation tool using machine learning for testing

Used weekly for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
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!

Cons
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.

Pros
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.

Cons
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.

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
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

Cons
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

Used daily for 1-2 years

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.

Pros
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.

Cons
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.

Pros
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.

Cons
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.
