UAT checklist
      #635452 - 07/20/10 07:56 AM

Recently I joined a company as a QA person and immediately been put in charge of 'fixing' UAT. It seems that this place suffers from the usual plauges of UAT - data is wrong, environment is not ready, version are not right, no single point of contact, etc.

My first point of attack was to take a snapshop of version/connections/configurations in UAT, SIT and Prod, and then see where the differences are.

The second point of attack was to come up with a checklist as a preparation for UAT. This checklist would be a handover document between a test resource and a build engineer. It would contain the dates for environment, version request, connections, etc.

Has anyone done anything like this checklist before? What form did it take. Can you please point me in the right direction?

The physical document is nice for us, if we're walking around and recording information. However, if will likely become part of the desk-side file system and never be looked at again. I would probably suggest some sort of digital format, at least to support the physical documents. It also provides you with the ability to keep more detailed track of history and if you use a database you could certainly make searching, filtering, and sorting options across a much wider range of these documents, which could come in handy later on should you run into a pesky intermittent issue that's holding things up.

9 out of 10 people I prove wrong agree that I'm right. The other person is my wife.
