Skuid Testing

Provar now supports Skuid testing. Skuid is an AppExchange solution that provides tools to quickly create Salesforce pages with a custom user interface and greater functionality. Learn more at

Skuid testing is an interesting case because whenever changes are made to a Skuid page, this changes the XPaths, so automation test cases that use XPaths will need to be updated. This occurs with even minor page changes. For example, if we locate two fields on a page using XPaths, and, later, another field is added at the start of the page, the existing XPaths will no longer be accurate.

Another unique feature of Skuid testing is that Skuid has Tab Sets, which contain various tabs. To properly test all these tabs, we must manually switch between tabs and write additional steps to manage this.

Finally, Skuid also has master pages used to create child pages. These child pages have entire master pages with some additional content. XPaths must be rewritten for each page to test all these child pages.

Skuid Testing with Provar

Provar’s solution is to integrate with metadata so that any changes in the page can be detected and handled to ensure that existing test cases don’t break. Adding more fields or sections to a Skuid page does not break existing test steps.

In addition, users can author new test steps or test cases after the changes, and Provar will recognize the new changes automatically.

Provar automatically switches between tabs on a Skuid page without adding extra steps, making test cases shorter and easier to understand.

Finally, when testing child pages created from master pages, Provar automatically recognizes the child page through metadata and uses the information from its master page to test the child page.

As usual, metadata reload is needed after changes are made to the Org.
