Let us get familiar with:
How to Create a Session in OpKey Test Discovery to Analyze
To create a session in OpKey Test Discovery, the user will have to log in to the OpKey portal and navigate towards the Test Discovery platform.
A new window opens up which provides the user with the option to Create a New Session. Users can either click on the button placed alongside the Session tab or can also click on the right-side panel and Select the “+” button of Create Session.
Users will have to click on the specific process of the application for which they wish to create a session.
Currently, we are supporting sessions for Salesforce, SAP, Oracle EBS, Oracle Fusion.
The OpKey Test Discovery will help find and fix the inefficiencies disrupting the performance of the core business processes by retrieving the data from different types of databases and files from enterprise information systems or enterprise resource planning systems.
The retrieved data is then analyzed for the actions performed for the process and unique variants. Based on the retrieved data, shown in the process in a fact-based view of the events in an organization, the optimization measures are suggested which will unearth delays, missteps, and redundancies to boost efficiency and skip reworks.
A pop-up window opens up when the user selects any process. It will now ask to provide the session details of the process:
Let us have a look at each field present on the pop-up window
Application- This column will let the user select the Application.
Process- This column will let the user select the desired process of the application.
Name- This column will let the user put the desired name of the session.
Environment – This column will let the user select the environment (please refer to the link to learn, How to Add an Environment) and add the data.
Start Date – This column will let the user select the start date from which the data is to be retrieved.
End Date – This column will let the user select the end date till which the data is to be retrieved.
Time Zone- This column will let the user select the desired time range.
Use Client Utility – For users whose ERP application is an On-Premise setup, then download and connect the Client Utility on a machine from where the ERP application is accessible.
Users can directly click on the “Next” button and proceed or can click on the “Show Advanced Setting” tab to adjust the settings.
On clicking the Next tab post filling all the details, it will start fetching the data from the environment for the selected date range.
It will extract and analyze the data and present it in a graphical format. All these blueprints from the ERP system are accumulated in the form of huge data into OpKey’s log Repository. With metrics for optimal processes, deviations from standard business processes, bottlenecks, and other process obstacles can be recognized at a glance that Customers can understand the most of the frequent process flows and also immediately learn where exactly their business process suffers helping them take informed decisions
The graph portrays the activities that the user has performed related to the selected process within the selected period
The session is now divided into 3 major sections:
- Process Analysis: This section covers the process-related information such as the activity details, variants, and data visualization.
- Configuration Analysis: This section covers the configuration-related information that the environment configured with.
- Test Analysis: This section focuses on the test-mining part of the process. It covers the summary information of the process, seamless automation of current coverage, gap analysis, data combinations, and run-results of the automated test cases.
The modules and processes are represented in a graphical format in the Process Analysis of that particular process of the respective environment. The activities performed between the scheduled date are displayed to be analyzed.
Process Analysis has three sub-tabs of Process Map Details, Variants, and Data Visualization present on the right-side panel.
The Process Map Details will display the frequency of the data when the user clicks on any of the activities. A detailed pane with frequency and rework information will be displayed for the selected activity.
The Variants are the unique paths in the whole process map.
The dropdown present on the upper panel of the screen presents us with three options:
Case Frequency – This option will show the count of cases involved in the available process map.
Activity Frequency – This option will show the activity frequency on the activity for the whole process map.
Throughput Time – This option will show the average time taken for the transaction from one activity to another.
This section will show all the cases and involved user’s activity for each case.
The Configuration analysis will display the configurations applied to that particular application. It identifies the relevant configurations, basis the particular active processes which should be tested. We create the relevant test data combinations against those processes in our autonomous test case generations so that the optimum test coverage can be received towards the end. For example, Oracle Fusion application can display the configuration of Payables and Procurement.
It analyzes the Applications as per Date, the Process that has been analyzed of a particular Application, the Environment that has been used while analyzing, the Variant Count of the application being analyzed, the Estimated Time Saved on automating the processes, and the count of the Operating Units.
