"On the 5th day of DevTest the CA team gave to me 5 generated assets

Four opaque data types processed

Three new execution modes,

Two RR pairs added,

and a Server-Side Recorder in a DevTest tree!"



Welcome to our 5th day of DevTest 8.0!  Today we are looking at the new CA Continuous Application Insight and it’s ability to generate Actionable Assets.

What is a Actionable Asset? Actionable Assets are test cases, virtual services, and visibility documents into the business processes running behind the user interface and API’s based on live paths we observe in a running application.  On the 5th day of DevTest we specifically look at how to generate test cases (baselines) for API’s below the user interface.  If you think about that, simply you can now use a tool to automate your automation and get ahead of the curve for your automated regression testing. 

If you answer yes to any of these opportunities watch the video below.


  • “Don’t understand where the APIs are”CA CAI documents the transactions and show the API layer

  • “I enter data at the UI – I don’t understand data at the service layer”CA CAI baseline generation includes test data observed automatically

  • “I manually run the same test with different data”1,000’s of them – Automated test can be scheduled or integrate into CI / CD workflows



As you can see, this new functionality is unmatched in the industry.  We're even more excited to hear how you plan to use it - let us know in the comments below.  And that's our 5th gift to you on these 12 days of DevTest!
