Can we write test cases for sanity testing?
same as smoke testing, we don’t write test cases particularly to do sanity testing. Functional Testing: We do test each and every feature of the software application to make sure whether each feature is behaving as specified in the requirement document. To do functional testing, we do write test cases.
Which test cases can be called sanity test cases?
Definition of ‘Sanity Testing’ Definition: Sanity testing is a subset of regression testing. After receiving the software build, sanity testing is performed to ensure that the code changes introduced are working as expected .
What is sanity testing with examples?
Example of Sanity Testing: There is a defect in the login page when the password field accepts less than four alpha numeric characters and the requirement mentions that this password field should not be below eight characters. Hence, the defect is reported by the testing team to the development team to resolve it.
Who performs sanity testing?
In a nutshell
|Smoke Testing||Sanity Testing||Regression Testing|
|Executed by testers & sometimes also by developers||Executed by testers||Executed by testers, mostly via automation|
|A part of basic testing||A part of regression testing||Regression Testing is a superset of Smoke and Sanity Testing|
When should be sanity testing performed?
Sanity testing is usually performed after receiving a fairly stable software build or sometimes when a software build might have undergone minor changes in the code or functionality. It decides if end to end testing of a software product shall be carried out further or not.
Who will perform sanity testing?
What is sanity test suite?
Sanity testing is a kind of Software Testing performed after receiving a software build, with minor changes in code, or functionality, to ascertain that the bugs have been fixed and no further issues are introduced due to these changes. The goal is to determine that the proposed functionality works roughly as expected.
Is sanity testing same as regression testing?
Sanity Testing is performed to check the stability of new functionality or code changes in the existing build. Regression testing is performed to check the stability of all areas impacted by any functionality change or code change.
What is sanity testing in QA?
Sanity testing is executed to determine if new module additions to an existing software build are stable enough to pass to the next level of testing. Sanity tests also ensure that any changes made do not impact other functionalities of the software build. In QA, sanity testing is part of regression testing.
What is understood by sanity checking?
A sanity check or sanity test is a basic test to quickly evaluate whether a claim or the result of a calculation can possibly be true. It is a simple check to see if the produced material is rational (that the material’s creator was thinking rationally, applying sanity).
What is Sanity testing?
Sanity test is usually unscripted, helps to identify the dependent missing functionalities. It is used to determine if the section of the application is still working after a minor change. Sanity testing can be narrow and deep. Sanity test is a narrow regression test that focuses on one or a few areas of functionality.
Which test cases are not covered under Sanity testing?
All the test cases are not covered under sanity testing. It is emphasized only on the statement and functions of the application. We do not have future references since the sanity testing is unscripted. It became a complex process to find any other components as sanity testing is executed only for some limited features.
What is the difference between smoke testing and Sanity testing?
From these functional testing types, smoke testing and sanity testing are the most confusing terms. These two practices revolve around software build, i.e. smoke testing is performed on the initial software build; while sanity testing is performed after a software build is received.
What to do when sanity test fails?
If sanity test fails, you might plan your development team to postpone the next task and fix the flawed release first. On the other hand, if sanity test is passed you might ask your development team to go ahead with the next task while keeping only one developer on the fixes or allocating 1-2 hours for bug fixes on the daily basis.
