HARgh Matey, Network Traffic Validation Made Easy - Aaron Wolford | Software Development Engineer in Test at Gannett, Greg Sypolt | Director/Quality Engineering at Gannett | USA Today Network
Testing network calls manually is a tedious and time-consuming process; especially when multiple URLs or network calls need validation. Using the Sauce Labs Extended Debugging feature, USA Today Network can validate data at a much faster rate to ensure that our data is accurate. By generating a HAR (http archive) file, the team can search the network calls to find and validate needed data.
For USA Today Network, this is a valuable tool for validating that analytics data is correct. By searching the data in the HAR file, they are able to find the network calls for each of the three analytics providers and validate that the values in each call are present and exact. Incomplete or incorrect data can lead to business decisions based upon bad data. Therefore, regularly testing analytics is a business must in any industry.
