Test Automation Tips

When I am writing and maintaining large functional UI tests I often realize somethings that would make my life easier. I decided to write this series of posts to describe some of the tips I have for myself in hopes that they prove to be helpful to someone else. What are some of your tips?

#1 Don’t test links unless you are testing links.

#2 If you update or delete test data in a test, you need to isolate the data so it isn’t used by any other tests.

#3 Don’t become complacent in testing when a change is simple.
