Tricentis Tosca is used in order to automate new features based on their requirements and run Regression and Smoke Tests on various states while developing and deploying. The system under test is an angular-based Web framework that is hosted in a WPF .net Application. The main focus is on GUI but also the DB feature is used.
  • Scanning SuT
  • Libraries with Business Parameter (I love them)
  • Default Modules (Aid Pack)
  • Unattended execution
  • Custom dll. for Tbox on Netdrives would be awesome
  • Handling with Chromedriver is a bit annoying
HTML is really easy, with the exception of tables - I still feel uncomfortable with those. WPF-Engine, on the other hand, is a real nightmare. Windows-specific Controls/Popups (Explorer, e.g., Save things) is also a pitty to steer, but at least can be done by using Vision AI as last resort alternative.
Many features and setups/options need to be known in order to manage TC execution properly under all circumstances. Cool features like Modul or Lib merge are awesome, but still, users don't even know they exist. If I had to start now with Tricentis Tosca, I assume it would quite overwhelm me. Luckily I have known it since Version 7.3.

Have used it for multiple projects spanning different companies from different areas such as life science, publishing, and media.
  • CRM application automation - Salesforce, SAP.
  • Email validation.
  • Dynamic data handling.
  • Multi lingual testing
  • Attributes identification automatically
  • Cross environment testing
Good scriptless tool to automate in less time. Flexible enough to manage dynamic application functionality.
It's easy to use known application functionality however custom components of crm application automation is difficult.

I create the test cases for regression tests for databases, web portals, and desktops with Tricentis Tosca and execute them daily.
  • Continuous test automation
  • Graphical user interface and drag and drop function
  • Modular technologies
  • Vision AI for WPF
  • More possibilities for self-programming
  • More documentation and examples
- For WPF testing, each scan gives different results.
- Control as verification is not stable. It stopped working after a few weeks.
- It's easy to get started with no programming experience.
- It is very practical for daily regression testing.

I use Tosca to automate, Salesforce application also used it for Automating ServiceMax and SAP Application. It was very exiting and good learning exeperience while automating application using Tosca. It is very easy to understand and develop modules in Tosca.
  • Desktop Automation
  • Mobile Automation
  • Web Automation
  • Service Virtualization
  • Robotic process Automation
  • API Automation
  • We User want to do customization on the predefined module, he need basic understanding of programing language, and without formal training of customization it is difficult to create custom modules.
  • Reporting can be improved
As it is a paid tool , it is better use when we are automating complex application and include wide range of testing.
It is very user friendly tool, the person who doesnt know any programming language and coding can easily adapt to it.

Currently, my project uses Tricentis Tosca to test Web Applications based on Salesforce custom implementation. We use Tricentis Tosca to perform various testing types, including UI/API testing. We are also planning to use it for Mobile automation and to perform DevOps integration. At the organization level, Tricentis Tosca is used across multiple projects, customers and technologies. This includes Salesforce, SAP, Workday, Web, Desktop, and Mobile applications across different domains like Payments, Banking, Life sciences, etc.
  • Codeless - Easy to learn, Users can be trained quickly.
  • Modular approach - Reusable test step blocks can be created and used across multiple test cases.
  • Multiuser repository - Seamless collaboration between multiple team members in real-time.
  • Supports high number of technologies.
  • Mobile Automation solution
  • Reporting feature
  • Test Data Management features can be simplified
  • Integration with Test management tools
Tricentis Tosca is well suited for packaged applications like SAP, Salesforce, Workday, etc. It also works well with API testing and Web UI testing. Tosca is highly suited for Projects which require a high level of collaboration between team members across different locations. It's less suited for mobile automation, Reporting, and test scenarios with high input data.
As Tricentis Tosca supports a large number of technologies and applications it's easier to start and progress on automation. There is hardly any need for custom code creation. The modular approach makes it easier to create test cases and maintain them further.

We purchased Tricentis Tosca to move from manual testing to automated testing. In the first year, we automated over 3000 test cases and reduced regression testing from over 10 days down to 4 and it is continuing to reduce. We installed an "automate first" approach which means there are no automation specialists in the team and there is no backlog of tests to be automated. All QA Analysts are trained on Tosca and can automate test cases in-sprint. As we move to a new microservices environment all the applications are automated from the start resulting in increased velocity across all teams.
  • Automates across Web, API, Desktop and Databases
  • Offers rapid scaling of tests based on test data
  • Provides excellent training for new starters
  • Better reporting on test progress
  • Autoscaling of distributed execution
Tricentis Tosca is well suited to the automation of test cases across all environments - web, API, desktop, DB. Tosca is well suited to organizing and running large-scale testing environments. Tricentis Tosca is not appropriate for small once-off automation efforts
Tricentis Tosca provides excellent training and a new starter will be trained and ready to automate within one month. Tricentis Tosca can test all technologies and the module approach works well in each.

Tricentis Tosca was used as an initiative to modernize our quality assurance department. We wanted to simplify test automation and roll out something more simple for users. It was used on a high-visibility project with web and java and we were able to rapidly automate the required performant test suite.
  • Rapid automation
  • Ease of use
  • Good to get test requirement
  • Exploratory testing
  • Integration
  • Meta data tracking
  • Advanced automation
  • out of the box automation
A scenario where Tricentis Tosca is performant. Web automation, throw-away scripts, exploratory testing. Excellent for testing a scenario with different parameters, limit testing. Excellent to duplicate and change tests rapidly. Excellent to quickly analyze an already automated test. Good for reporting. Great tutorials/certifications to get users up to speed! A scenario where Tricentis Tosca is less performant. Integration can be costly. Test management is harder to do than in ALM for example. It's harder to track certain things due to the lack of metadata on certain artifacts.
Tricentis Tosca will be great to automate rapidly. It is well structured and you will be able to automate faster. The only blocker is when you are not able to automate something with Tricentis Tosca, maybe 2% of the time. You then have less flexibility to code a workaround like you could in other tools. There is an alternative way of doing automation when you don't recognize an object such as finding the object in relation to another object on the page. The way you can recognize objects is advanced and is one of my favorite features of the tool. The tutorials make the usability of the tool easy. Without a tutorial, it would be hard to get into it.
Tricentis team was very supportive. Support is expensive but they helped us at many level. Setting up timeline, implementation, precise questions on automation challenges. We had an account manager and technical people we could as to talk to. Support was generally timely and helping. They often proposed to come on site to help us which would cost more but could be helpful.

Application migration to modern web user interfaces, API testing for microservices, on-prem to cloud migration of multiple enterprise tools.
  • Fast learning curve
  • No code implementations for SMEs
  • Distributed executions on agent machines
  • DEX execution stability
  • User management for shared repos
  • API testing UI experience and process to create new test cases
It is best suited when testing end-to-end scenarios, having execution lists and parameters for different environments.
It is not appropriate when testing lots of services, and you require to debug to troubleshoot some errors returned.
Your team will not require the most technical engineers to use the tool, it is easy to use, and there are very good training materials available on the Tricentis website to start creating test cases in less than a week. The tool user interface is really nice and provides options to customize it for your needs.

Tricentis Tosca is our recommended test automation tool for clients testing Enterprise Solutions including Salesforce, Oracle, and Workday. Their scriptless solution is easy to teach and implement, and their support is outstanding.
  • Test data creation and management
  • Script maintenance
  • Technology stack coverage
  • Pricing options for smaller customers
  • The certification exams for the Architect role are ambiguous.
  • Integrations with other tools could be better. Should not require an API developer to implement.
Tricentis Tosca is best suited for companies that need to test multiple systems including enterprise, legacy, Web/UI, and API. It's an excellent one-stop shop solution.
It can be a challenge for new users who have never used an automation tool. For example, it is hard to understand the layout of the screen and where to find how to update the data. The interface can be overwhelming at first.

Tosca is being used by our department for Regression testing. We have N number of test scenarios that we need to automate. And Tosca helps is automating these scenarios easily. We can easily reuse most of the test cases that we have built which helps in the reusability part helping us to save a lot of time.
  • Dynamic handling of objects is easy
  • Reusability of test cases
  • No scripting involved
  • Multiple features in one tool
  • Vendor support
  • Multiple technology support
  • Test case design section is very complicated
  • A little expensive
  • The UI takes time to understand
A lot of good features Tosca has and has helped our department in multiple ways. When it comes to end-to-end, that doesn't mean in one particular business but across multiple technologies too. It's very easy as it's scriptless and anyone can easily learn. We have automated more than 2000 scenarios so far and I can say once all the test cases were built it's easy to just execute them now. If any modifications are required we do those and then executive. Reusability has made it more easier. Also with the integration with other test management and defect tracking tools it gives us more scalability.
Once you get used to the tool it's very easy to automate and also maintain the test cases. Only one recommendation or a drawback that I see here with Tosca is their Test case design (red section) approach. It's complicated.
The vendor support that is provided in terms of Mail, chat, forums, online support is so easy and I haven't seen this with any other tool vendor so far.

Tricentis Tosca was the chosen solution to modernize our test automation suite. It was used on certain projects while we kept using a legacy automation app for other projects. It has mainly been used for the web, but also for other desktop apps, some customs, some in-house. Overall it helped speed the automation process.
  • Speed of delivery
  • Rapid automation
  • Onboarding new users
  • Meta data management is hard to follow
  • Hard to govern users
  • Integration with other tools can be challenging and costly
Tricentis Tosca is a good candidate for organizations where QA are not yet doing automation. For more functional people, it is a great asset as it is quite codeless. Tricentis Tosca might not be a good candidate if you already have a mature team of automation QA that are well experienced in their tool and already delivering rapidly. The team may find that while this codeless software improves delivery speed, they might find it lacks the flexibility and rigors a coding test automation framework might provide.
It's fairly easy to use. Tricentis Tosca provides a great tutorial to jump start your skills. It's codeless, so it will be appreciated by people with no automation skills. It's a bit harder to use when coding is necessary. It's not as flexible sometimes because of this. Overall, it's one of the easiest test automation frameworks to use.

Overall experience with Tricentis Tosca is very good, we use this tool for automated testing four our LMS annual upgrades and it is very helpful and reliable. They have really good customer support services. It is the best suite for coddles test automation if you're willing to pay a price.
  • Web based
  • Mobile based
  • Web services
  • Coding is not available
  • Product functionality and performance
  • Improvement in the desktop applications
This product helps both web and desktop applications and very easy to handle. Need some more improvement in the desktop applications. Tricentis Tosca is coming [up] with very good options of giving automation solutions but the base is still not constant. Web automation, Load testing which is integrated but not working.

Tricentis Tosca is used by many of the teams in my organization as the test automation tool. Because it has very wide variety of options such as API automation, UI automation , load testing etc.. it's one of the major testing tools that's being used in my organization for all test automation needs.
  • It's one stop shop for all your test automation needs like - api layer, ui layer, load testing, mobile automation.
  • It has excellent support for CI/CD and Devops environment which makes it very modern but much needed solution
  • It can run in cross browser and cross devices with same test script and again saves a lot of time.
  • Excellent results and dashboards gives nice view into results.
  • Image comparison and visual validation is such an important thing today and Tricentis should do more to support these activities.
  • It's a paid tool meaning you have to shell out money to use it.Although it more than does justice for the price.
  • Support to integrate test results with test management tools like HP ALM,Jira-Xray would be nice.
If you have an application that needs to be tested at - API layer, UI layer across devices and browsers and run in DevOps environment, it's a best bet. Additionally you can automate windows applications too. It kind of acts as a nice add on to Selenium, HP UFT and even SoapUI. That's really great.It can improve on visual validation part.

I work in the Software Quality assurance team in my organization which is a medium sized IT services provider. We are in process of forming a team which is proficient in using Tosca as a test automation tool for Desktop and Mobile applications. My interaction with the tool has been for the same reasons.
  • Tosca provides a one-stop solution for your test-automation needs. One can use it to automate testing of desktop (web/stand-alone) applications, Mobile(Native as well as Web) applications etc.
  • It is a great tool since it not only helps in test automation but also in maintaining a suite for Manual testing.
  • It does have a steep learning curve, A tool is often perceived capable of doing only what its user is able to achieve in accomplishing while using it. For this reason, its very necessary if for the team at Tricentis to continue doing the great work they are doing to train early adopters of this fantastic tool.
It is a brilliant tool if the application under test needs to be tested on multiple configurations (Mobile/ Desktop/Web/Native).
Since the tool allows to maintain the manual test-suite within itself I believe it would help considerably to ensure that there are no gaps between the Manual and automated test coverage and the manual as well as the automation teams can work closely.

TOSCA has been decided as the tool of choice for our (client) organization. Before implementing TOSCA we were not very sure on the automation test process. After implementing it we were able to reduce the cycle time for regression tests.
  • Model Based Test Automation: Creation of reusable modules. Having reusable data classes is a real plus when working with huge volumes of data. Requirement coverage in TOSCA gives a clear picture on the test coverage based on frequency and damage class. This feature is very helpful in determining priority test cases during time crunch.
  • TOSCA's inbuilt combining matrix is very helpful to determine which attribute needs to be tested more. The concepts of having straight thru and negative tests along with boundary is a great plus.
  • Template based tests cover maximum scenarios with minimal effort. Ability to pause a test execution in the middle is a great utility especially when there are some un wanted popups.
  • I don't see any cons for TOSCA. One thing that I would like to suggest for Tricentis is that the pricing for TOSCA is a bit on the higher side. I do agree that the features are great but if they can compromise just a little on the price then this tool would be the market leader for decades.
I have been using Tricentis tosca for automating the web as well as mainframe applications. Web application automation was a cake walk. When there are no user-friendly tools available for mainframe automation, TOSCA was able to automate mainframe applications with a little bit of effort.
