About Tricentis Tosca

Tricentis Tosca is a Continuous Testing platform that delivers fast feedback for Agile and DevOps. It allows you to design automated, functional, end-to-end software tests across all layers of your enterprise architecture.

Beyond test automation, Tricentis Tosca gives you real-time risk assessment with business-focused, actionable results. This includes:

  • Helping the entire team collaborate to quickly expose critical defects

  • Integrating testing directly into CI/CD pipelines and “best of breed” DevOps ecosystems

  • Ensuring the availability of appropriate test data at any time

  • Simulating the behavior of dependent systems if they are unavailable during test execution

Tricentis Tosca is a one stop shop. It provides you with the tools to

Basic work flow

When you work with Tricentis Tosca, these are the basic steps you will take in your testing life-cycle:

  1. Identify the criteria which the system under test is expected to fulfill, then create a clear Requirement structure that reflects these criteria (see chapter "Create and manage Requirements").

  2. Design a logical test structure to see what you need to cover your Requirements. Use TestCase-Design to create combinations of possible TestCases (see chapter "Work with TestCase-Design").

  3. Create Modules that contain the technical information Tricentis Tosca needs to steer the system under test (see chapter "Create and manage Modules").

  4. Create concrete TestCases out of your Modules. TestCases are a series of TestSteps that verify your specifications (see chapter "Create and manage TestCases").

  5. Configure your tests. You can centrally manage test configuration parameters for your entire team (see chapter "Configure tests").

  6. Prepare and perform the execution of your tests (see chapter "Execute tests").

    Once you have executed your tests, Tricentis Tosca maps the test results with your Requirements. This gives you a good overview of

    • your testing status

    • the status of your system under test

Additional test steps

You can also perform the following tasks with Tricentis Tosca:

  • manage your test data

  • plan your tests with Test Planning

  • create and link issues

  • print a report of your project status
