Cerberus

Open-source automated testing software for IT teams

About Cerberus

Cerberus is an open-source testing software designed to help businesses automate the testing of websites, applications, APIs, and more. It enables IT professionals to create custom testing libraries and directly execute tests across continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) pipelines.

Professionals can utilize Cerberus’ built-in test requirements management module to organize tests, define use cases, add labels or tags to testing groups, and provide role-based access to specific users. The application allows managers to configure settings for conducting manual tests, automate workflows, and create tests by reusing previously generated test steps. It offers a host of features such as data logs, defect tracking, analytics, data import/export, compliance management, SSL security, and more.

It provides an API, which allows organizations to integrate the system with various third-party applications such as SAP, Apache Kafka, Slack, Jira, Jenkins, Selenium, and more. Cerberus also lets users execute tests across multiple environments, browsers, devices, and locations.

Awesome tool for test automation

Reviewed on 24/11/2020

My overall experience with this tool is great and I would definitely recommend it.

My overall experience with this tool is great and I would definitely recommend it.

Pros

Cerberus is a very powerful user-friendly testing tool that allows testing different types of components such as web sites and APIs (REST/SOAP).
It is very simple to start writing test and can easily detect errors through screenshot or validation controls that allows fast feedback loops to the programmers (especially great for non-regression tests).
It has many built in features such as import tests and reuse them on another tests, dynamic data gathering (using SQL, CSV, ...), can organize easily your tests, multi environment and multi country, can interface with multiple technologies (Selenium, Appium, …), can interact with many platforms (Jira, Mantis, …)
Great active community working together to implement new features and overall improve the software.

Cons

Lacks some more statistics pages and some UI improvements.

A very powerful and abstractive way to deal with functional testing

Reviewed on 24/11/2020

Pros

Cerberus offer us a simple way to implement functional testing in our company.
To illustrate how easy to use it could be, in or quality team, we use to have trainees from middle school, juste for a couple of hours. We almost always make them implement some test on cerberus, and in only 1h max, they perform order scenarios.
Is that enough ? A child can use it !
More than this, the easy way to create libraries, duplicate tests, etc make ceberus a powerful tool to realize some very quick end to end tests.
Reports are clear and complete, other integrations like webhook (for slack for instance) make it "humanly" well integrated.

Cons

According to me, to ensure a better future of this solution, it could be to work more about "technical integrations". By UX stories, ceberus would win a lot to be more integrated in continuous integration and continuous deployment process.
It is wonderful to perform tests phases, but how to include all these generated quality metrics in CI/CD efficiently with several technologies ?
For a better integration and adoption, Cerberus should orient itself a little more towards its integration into a technological up to date ecosystem.
A recorder, or the possibility to automate the creation of a test case by a Gherkin wrote scenario could be some great features too.

Response from Cerberus Testing

we use cerberus to test the mobile app, as well as web services on multiple countries and different environments, the tool is very well designed to allow manipulation of manual and automatic tests, thus saving time with test libraries and data variability
I recommand it

Pros

Cerberus is an automated functional testing tool that helps testers run manual and automated tests to identify errors contrary to the expected results of the application under test. It allows testing of mobile apps, desktop software, webpage and API (web service)

Why is Cerberus the best testing tool?
Technical and non-technical testers can use Cerberus
We can test desktop as well as web applications or mobile application and web services
Very convenient for playing tests on different countries / environments
easy to set up and run tests
ability to link to bug tracking software to ensure optimal bug monitoring
ability to configure it with continuous integration and to launch tests automatically at any time and without interruption
ability to configure notifications to stay informed of test results in real time

Cons

automatic tests are quickly executed, duplicated but remain less precise than manual tests, automated tests allow to eliminate human errors, in short we test what we have preprogrammed quickly and efficiently but not more than that!

Response from Cerberus Testing

Glad to read that you are leveraging the various testing capabilities for your various needs,

We hope the next releases will continue and exceed your expectations for automation testing!

Today, Cerberus is fully integrated in our release process. It aims at guaranting the highest quality of our application web within the less possible time. Thanks to this tool, all recurring and time consuming tests were moved from manual to automatic.
Now, all this time saved can be put in more valuable tasks such as improving the organization

Pros

First i have to speak of the fact that's an open source tool (free) which was created almost 10 years ago and which has been constantly enriched and updated to meet, always more, customers' expectations.
To mention specific features i appreciate, i can talk of :
- the ability to create block of standard actions that can be easily use for any test case (use step) essential for the maintainability of the tests,
- the quality of the rapport provided for each run essential for the analyse
- the data management essential to make the test more stable over time
- the highly configurable run that allows to have the quickest execution related to the infra essential to minimise the time for the run in itself
- the ability to run all kind of tests : desktop, mobile, app, end to end tests etc ... essential to have a wider (and then more reliable) vision of the non regression tests

Cons

I'm using Cerberus before the SAAS solution was existing and, at that time the installation of Cerberus was quite complicated.
I will soon move to the SAAS version and i'm happy to get rid of all that kind of technical things to do!
Impossible to import data directly from an excel file.
Impossible to export testcases and reports to have a specific analyse.

Response from Cerberus Testing
