PeopleSoft Testing Framework (PTF)

July 27, 2017 | Candice Carden, Brian Morrison

Historically, it can be a challenge to keep automated test scripts up to date, reducing their benefit and usefulness. Selective Adoption and PUM (PeopleSoft Update Manager) mostly eliminates the need to maintain automated test scripts and with PTF, automated testing for PeopleSoft can be set up and maintained with minimal on-going effort.

PeopleSoft Test Framework (PTF) is the easy-to-use open source solution for PeopleSoft performance testing.  PTF allows validation of recorded objects against PeopleSoft object metadata definitions.

PTF works by replicating the actions of a single user executing functional tests against the PeopleSoft browser-based application. Users can record manual test procedures and save them within the framework. Test and Test Cases are stored in the database as Application Designer objects. As a result, test assets are PeopleTools-managed objects, which can be managed along with other PeopleTools-managed objects through PeopleSoft Lifecycle Management.

PTF makes adding a formal test strategy integrated with PeopleSoft installed and optimized quickly and  can save up to 70-80% of the time currently spent on manual testing, while adding deeper, wider, and more consistent test coverage for upgrade and lifecycle management.
