Test Automation

How to write your own automated tests for Dynamics 365 Business Central and make optimal use of the standard test suite

In any Business Central project, be it a one-off customer project or a generic product update, testing tends to be at the end of the cycle. Next to that, due to moving intermediate deadlines, it often gets squeezed between code ready and the final delivery. In our changing world with a higher frequency of minor and major releases, and a higher demand of customers to be up-to-date, manual testing is becoming more and more a major bottleneck in our development practice. And be honest: looking at many projects with their to high rate of after go-live issues we have to leverage testing. Test automation can be of great help in this. So get yourself updated and prepared to get this included in your development practice.

Making use of Luc van Vugt’s book “Automated Testing in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central” this two day’s workshop will you learn about the concept of automated testing, how to write automated tests in Business Central and how to make use of the Microsoft standard tests with as little as effort as possible.
