PeopleSoft Test Framework

About PeopleSoft Testing Framework

Automate functional PeopleSoft testing with the same tool used by the Oracle PeopleSoft team, the PeopleSoft Test Framework.

What is the PeopleSoft Test Framework(PTF)?

The PeopleSoft Test Framework (PTF) is a powerful tool designed to automate functional testing within the PeopleSoft application. Leveraging the intrinsic functionality of PeopleSoft, it allows users to record, playback, and maintain test scenarios, effectively reducing the time and resources dedicated to repetitive manual testing. It allows a high degree of customization, allowing tests to be adapted to specific business processes, and it's valuable for regression testing after patches or upgrades. With PTF, organizations can improve the quality of their PeopleSoft applications, reduce errors, and ensure consistent performance across all modules.

PTF Features

Automated Functional Testing:

PTF enables users to record and play back tests for functional paths within PeopleSoft applications, which can greatly reduce the time and effort spent on manual testing.

Test Maintenance:

The test maintenance feature allows users to easily update and maintain test cases. This ensures that the testing process remains relevant and effective as business processes evolve and change.

Regression Testing:

PTF is an effective tool for regression testing, as it allows businesses to automatically check that previously functional features still work after patches or updates.


PTF supports a high degree of customization, allowing tests to be tailored to specific business processes. This ensures that testing is as relevant and comprehensive as possible, covering the unique processes and workflows of an organization.

How does PTF Automation Work?

PeopleSoft Test Framework (PTF) operates by replicating user actions on PeopleSoft applications, automating the process of functional testing. Users can record a sequence of actions within the application, creating a "test script." This script can then be ru+n or "played back" to automatically replicate the recorded actions. If an update or change to the application is made, the same test script can be run again to verify that the change hasn't inadvertently disrupted functionality elsewhere - a process known as regression testing. Tests can be tailored to specific business processes, allowing for a high degree of customization in testing. Furthermore, the scripts can be parameterized, allowing for different sets of data to be tested using the same steps. Overall, this approach saves time and effort, reduces the potential for human error, and ensures a thorough and consistent testing process.

Using PTF

To use PeopleSoft Test Framework (PTF), the user first records a test by performing a series of actions within a PeopleSoft application, creating a test script. Once the script is generated, it can be edited and customized as needed, including parameterizing inputs for variability in testing. This test script is then executed or "played back" by PTF, automatically replicating the user's actions on the application, and validating the expected versus actual outcomes. Finally, the user analyzes the results generated by PTF to identify any discrepancies, thus enabling them to detect any potential issues within the application.
