Disadvantages of Automation Testing

What are the disadvantages of Automation Testing?


Though the automation testing has many advantages, it has its own disadvantages too. Some of the disadvantages are:

  • Proficiency is required to write the automation test scripts.
  • Debugging the test script is major issue. If any error is present in the test script, sometimes it may lead to deadly consequences.
  • Test maintenance is costly in case of playback methods. Even though a minor change occurs in the GUI, the test script has to be re-recorded or replaced by a new test script.
  • Maintenance of test data files is difficult, if the test script tests more screens.
Some of the above disadvantages often cause damage to the benefit gained from the automated scripts. Though the automation testing has pros and corns, it is adapted widely all over the world.
