Challenges of Testing Dynamics CRM

As discussed in the webinar, there are some unique challenges of testing Microsoft Dynamics CRM that Rapise has been designed to simplify:

  • Single page application that changes the contents without URL changes or page loads
  • Lots of nested IFRAMEs with changing ID values.
    • The Rapise SPY lets you see the composition of the page DOM
  • Challenge with testing CRM grids when sort/layout changed
  • The speed of the application is very unpredictable with page load times slow randomly, making testing difficult
    • Need to add timing synchronization since Dynamics is slow

If you missed the event, we have a recording on our YouTube channel:
