There are some ‘dumb’ routine tasks we have to do as a tester
Not all of them require a signifanct amount of intelligence and can be done automatically
And I’m not talking about checking as in testing something, rather activities other than actual testing
Some AUT upkeep tasks like configuration updates, checking installations, maintaining environments, compying stuff from one place to another
Having a single tool to do all of these things might be an overkill in the start
But certainly can prepare a bunch of smaller programs for routine tasks and controlled from one place (Jenkins..?)
Call it a stripped down dumb version of Jarvis if you will..
I know @Alan Richardson has talked about something similar
Care to share something you are using along those lines?
