Your first test

What to test?

  • Start with testing something simple, ex. going to your homepage and checking if validation if you contact form works
  • Don't test user registration yet as it requires using more advanced features like variables to do it right

Record the first test

  1. 1.
    Think upfront of what do you want to test - choose a one simple use case
  2. 2.
    Create a new test
  3. 3.
    Click "Record" - if you installed the extension, the incognito Chrome browser window should appear
  4. 4.
    Enter the URL of the web app or website that you want to test
  5. 5.
    Carefully click the elements to navigate - each click will be recorded automatically
  6. 7.
    When you are ready with the test case click the Stop recording button in the overlay menu on the right
  7. 8.
    Now run the test to see if everything was correctly recorded
Hovers are not automatically recorded! You need to record in hover mode by activating it in the recording overlay.

Manually reviewing and adding steps after the recording

You don't need to use recording, you can also create your tests step by step by adding particular actions and their parameters. This is however much slower!
You can manually edit steps anywhere in your test by clicking the plus symbol between the rows.
You can modify the particular step when some element is not correctly caught by the BugBug's recording. Edit, run the test again, and check if it is working!
