Capture Test Evidence with Screenshots

Toffee now supports automated capture of screenshot test evidence. Issue simple commands like “take a screenshot” or “enable automated screenshot capture” and Toffee will capture screenshots of your remote testing desktop, store them securely to the cloud, and publish them online, with your test results, to your campaign stakeholders.

To celebrate this milestone, we’re offering a 50% subscription discount for 12 months to the first 25 respondents. More info at the end of this post.

What makes Toffee’s screenshot capabilities unique?

  • Distributed capture: Toffee Performer can run almost anywhere – in the cloud, in an on-premise test lab behind your corporate firewall, or on your laptop. This allows you to capture screenshots from any testing machine, whether it’s the one on your desk or one located on the other side of the globe. Non-distributed testing platforms can only capture screenshots from the machine running the tests.
  • Whole screen capture: Like many platforms, Toffee can capture the contents of the browser running the application under test (AUT). Because real-world acceptance tests often enlists other applications (e.g., Microsoft Outlook or Excel), Toffee can also capture images of the entire screen.
  • Online publication: Many testing platforms capture screenshots, but leave it to you to figure out how to share those screenshots with the people who need them, and to associate them with the test steps they belong to. Toffee publishes those screenshots online, with your test results, so you can easily share them with stakeholders, developers, and quality auditors.
  • Secure, durable storage: Toffee uses Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3) to provide durable, highly-available, and fast cloud-based storage for your test evidence. Toffee adds its own layer of access control to S3, ensuring that only people assigned to a campaign can see that campaign’s screenshot evidence.
