Todays topic will be Sanity Testing we are going to clearify what it is and why you should use it.

What is Sanity Testing?

Short version:

Sanity testing is usually performed when any minor bug is fixed or when there is a small change in the functionality. It is a kind of software testing which is done by the testers to ensure that the functionality is working as expected.

Sanity testing is a testing type which is performed when bugs are fixed by the developer or when there is a small change made in the existing functionality its also done by an testing team to ensure that the functionality is working as expected. Sanity Testing is also known to be a subset of regression testing and is performed before going for the regression testing in order to determine if there is any showstopper in the application which can be addressed at the earliest.

Advantages of Sanity Testing:

  • Helps to avoid wasting time and cost involved in testing if the build has failed
  • Helps to identify the dependent missing objects.
  • Is used to determine a small section of the application is still working after a minor change.
  • Can be narrow and deep. As a narrow regression test that focuses on one or a few areas of functionality.
