We have moved

This is a legacy version of Copado Robotic Testing help. This page will not be updated anymore.

See https://docs.copado.com/ for up-to-date documentation.

In this quick guide we will run through a bunch of simple steps to get you a super quick feel of Copado Robotic Testing, a hyper-scalable test automation product. In order to accomplish this, you do not need to have any prior knowledge of Copado Robotic Testing or test automation, just an email id.


By following the steps below, you will run your first test automation cases using Copado Robotic Testing, well under 5 minutes. You will have access to a hyper-scalable test automation infrastructure, a place for all your test results, a dashboard showing test automation statistics, videos and screenshots of your test runs, ability to schedule runs, ability to integrate in your existing DevOps tool chain, access to extremely simple but powerful syntax for creating test automation scripts for multiple platforms, test generation capabilities and for the brevity, a lot more.

Lastly, this will all happen in cloud without you having to set any infrastructure or install anything or build a CI/CD pipeline.
