How it works

Orangebeard is a flexible SaaS solution that is configurable to your automatic testing process and software development. Read further to learn more.

Collecting test run output

It all starts with data. That’s why Orangebeard aims to collect all relevant information on your test runs. Orangebeard provides interfaces to connect your test tools- and frameworks, as well as tool-specific integrations to send your test runs, -suites and -cases’ output to Orangebeard. Regardless of whether your tests run on a developer laptop or in a CI/CD pipeline. Besides test run output, you can also provide Orangebeard with information from your version control system, so Orangebeard knows what changes are being tested.
Automated defect analysis
Based on current- and previous test output and previously classified defects, Orangebeard will suggest the cause of a failed test to speed up analysis. Orangebeard remembers what went wrong and why, and will tell you if a defect has occurred before.

Passed: 3 Failed: 1 Product bug: 1

Passed: 9 Failed: 1 System Issue: 1

Passed: 8 Failed: 2 Automation Issue: 2

Connecting and collecting data

Connect your test runs to Orangebeard using one of our tool-specific connectors, or roll your own using one of our API clients.
It isn’t important where you save, store and run your tests from. We can handle data from any origin, such as your developer laptop, or a Cloud-based CI service. And everything in between.

Orangebeard stores your data in a safe environment where only you can access it. Your data is used for your analysis alone.
We have clients for Java, .NET, Javascript, Python and Powershell (and more to come)! You decide what data you share for maximum relevance.

Visualizing the data

Have you ever found yourself lost in different reports from different test tools? Do you find it hard to interpret unit test results or html reports that work only in browser x or y?

Orangebeard reports all of your test results in a uniform way in its visual, clear interface. Put our overview page on the big screen. Gain insight in your latest test runs. Or get help from our Auto-Analyzer to classify defects based on your earlier failure analyses and see those results emerge in real-time.

No more waiting for that run to finish! Start investigating test failures as they come in. And of course, we have dark-mode too!

Making automated testing intelligent

Auto Analysis 

When analyzing test failures, how often have you found that after some time, you realize you’ve seen this happen before?

Have you ever had that feeling that your tests mostly fail because your environment is acting up? Are failed tests adding value or are they mostly adding frustration?

Our Auto Analysis feature helps you quantify these issues. Gain insight in why your tests fail and how often. Are you mostly finding bugs in your product, or do your tests mostly prove you’re lagging behind on test maintenance?

Auto Test Pilot

Based on what we know about a test and how it relates to your product (not just code!), the auto test pilot will help you decide what to test in the limited time you can spare. Orangebeard links your tests to software components and code changes and proposes optimized subsets and prioritization for the test run at hand.

Based on the changes you provide at the start of a test run, Orangebeard uses a machine learning model to predict which tests have the greatest chance to fail. This results in optimized (sub)sets prioritized to provide lightning-fast feedback on your current change.

No more waiting for a full regression test when deploying a small change. Orangebeard gives you the opportunity to test the biggest risks first and because we report in real-time, you can act on the first sign of trouble.

To train our model, Orangebeard needs meta-data on changes and test results. No static analysis, no instrumentation, so no need to change your software or to share your valuable source code with us.

Our model is trained using data from your test runs. When tests fail, or their characteristics change, Orangebeard learns that those tests have a stronger relationship with the files or components that were changed.

– Plug-ins

Security Scan

Using our plug-in system, Non-functional testing can be incorporated in Orangebeard. Our Security Scan plug-in connects industry standard DAST-tools to Orangebeard. Effectively providing you with a one-stop-(barber)shop for all your testing efforts!

Secure with every build

Connect your favorite security scan reports to Orangebeard and report findings for each run. Or use our OWASP Zap agent to create context-rich active scans based on your regression test runs!

Say goodbye to the test tool jungle!

View all your test results in one dashboard, making it super easy to read, understand and report what happened.

Realize maximum quality and efficiency

Let Orangebeard select and run the tests for maximum quality and coverage in the time you have available. 

With Orangebeard, your testing will get smarter and faster with every build.

Orangebeard’s artificial intelligence allows you to speed up your software releases in your automated pipeline up to 80%.

Orangebeard learns from your test results data and recognizes:

  • bugs, environment issues and test failures
  • trends in failure reasons
  • the maturity level of your test environment
  • which tests are associated with code changes check-ins
  • security vulnerabilities

With all that data, Orangebeard‘s intelligence helps you select and run the best test sets for the next deployment. Completely automated!
