When Should You Use Regression Tests for Microsoft Dynamics 365?

© by

Regression testing is a practice aimed at ensuring that the application continues to function properly after any code changes, improvements or updates. It is responsible for the stability and effectiveness of the existing software features. Therefore, companies should regularly run regression tests for their operational systems to ensure their high quality. If you use Microsoft Dynamics 365 to manage your business, check out our guide on conducting such tests in Executive Automats!

Regression testing in Microsoft Dynamics 365 is typically used in the following circumstances:

  • A new feature has been added to the application.
  • A new requirement has been added to an existing feature.
  • The source code has been optimized to improve performance.
  • Changes have been made to the software configuration.
  • Patch fixes were added.

Regression tests provide product teams with the necessary feedback and let them quickly react to possible complications. They detect errors at an early stage of implementation, which allows you to avoid unnecessary expenses on removing accumulated defects. It happens that an apparently insignificant change causes a domino effect and limits the efficiency of specific processes. Regression tests prevent this from happening.

How to run regression tests in Microsoft Dynamics 365

The regression testing process depends on the structure of the organization and its business goals. However, it can usually be boiled down to the following steps:

  1. Detecting changes in the source code.
  2. Choosing product priorities and requirements.
  3. Defining entry point and criteria.
  4. Defining starting point.
  5. Test planning.

When the tests are planned and written in detail, you will need an intuitive program to carry them out. In the case of Microsoft Dynamics 365, it is best to rely on the innovative Executive Automats tool. You can try it for free and learn how to use the tool effectively under the supervision of its technicians.
