Key Challenges in PEGA Automation

Challenge Selenium ACCELQ
Requires a mature Test Automation Framework designed for PEGA rule set validation Needs to be built from scratch. Several weeks of initial effort. Lifetime maintenance burden. Built based on best practices and comes pre-packaged. Consistent approach to modularity, parameterization, test case definition, reporting, error handling etc.
Due to the dynamic nature of Web Elements in PEGA, object identification is not straight forward Based on id, name, CSS, XPath etc. Requires technical knowledge to deal with complex and dynamic elements.

Selenium does not provide facility to use data-test-id, which is unique id provided by Pega. This is the biggest limitation with Selenium for Pega application.

Intuitive visual interface to build unique identification with realtime feedback.

Support for jQuery-based neighborhood and extended attribute selectors (with no technical skill requirement). Powerful self-healing strategies for detecting and self-correcting any changes in application interface elements.

Testing Pega UI and Pega API in Silos Along with Selenium need another tool for API Testing like SOAP UI or Rest Assured.

Integrating REST API interface to Pega BPM is not straight forward in Selenium.

Built in support for SOAP, REST, JMS, and Service Bus. Fully visual interface without needing programming knowledge.

End to end testing capabilities with a combination of UI and API testing in the same flow.
