Introduction: We still need to walk a distance before we could talk of performing complete codeless automation in the same breath as that of the regular manual tests. Certain scripts are used in automation for replacing redundant tests. QA teams are leveraging codeless solutions for replacing non-redundant coding. However, as it seems, scripted and manual ones play a formidable role for years.

Heavy scripts leave an impact on the readability of the automation test cases. The business stakeholders often find it difficult to follow these test cases. However, understanding the coverage of the product gets easier for them with the use of codeless automation frameworks. 

The Benefits of Codeless Automation Are As Follows:

  • Codeless Test Execution Gets Speedier: The extra pace in performing automation testing is one of the primary benefits of codeless automation. Codeless automation makes it more accessible and simpler to create test cases and fulfil requests for further enhancements and changes. 
  • Test Case Maintenance Gets Easier:  Documenting test cases, especially the automated ones often proves tougher owing to the code complexities. The problem could be easily resolved with codeless automation. You do not get overwhelmed when you face the complexities of traditional scripting.
  • Executing Smoke and Sanity Tests Turns Advantageous: Codeless automation helps us record scenarios pertaining to sanity and smoke testing. With each build release, the QA teams can utilize Codeless automation to save resources and time.
  • Dependency on specific skillsets: Since codeless automation do not need much of coding/scripting experience, so skillset dependency reduces to a large extent.

Despite Being Popular, Codeless Automation Testing Has the Following Boundaries:

  • Customization Boundaries: All scenarios cannot be handled with codeless automation tools. The fact that the framework controls all automation scenarios, it is not possible to customize the codeless automation tools. 
  • Tool Usage Limits: Tools that perform codeless automation are capable of handling most functionalities besides mobile apps. However, some frameworks find it tough to control certain features and Iframes. It is evident that you can handle certain features only when you have some knowledge of coding.


Codeless Automation may drive the future of Automation Testing. With the help of a few good assets, the testing teams can perform codeless automation and that too within a pre-set timeline. Both for test case maintenance and design, codeless automation proves a time-saver.

Codeless automation tests thereby enable us to focus more on developing test cases and evaluating them rather than spending much time making the code work besides processing and measuring it.
