How TheTestMart Outperforms RSAT for Automated Testing of Dynamics 365

Dec 11, 2023Blog

If you are using Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management, you know how important it is to test your system regularly and thoroughly. Whether applying Microsoft updates, customizing your solution, or integrating with other applications, you must ensure that your system works as expected and that no functionality is broken.

However, testing can be a time-consuming, labor-intensive, and error-prone process. Manual testing requires a lot of resources and expertise, and it can be disrupted by human factors such as fatigue, boredom, or distraction. Automated testing can save you time and money, but it also comes with its own challenges, such as maintaining test scripts, configuring test environments, and analyzing test results.

That’s why you need a reliable and efficient automated testing solution that can help you verify your system with minimal effort and maximum accuracy. In this blog post, we will compare two popular automated testing tools for Dynamics 365: the Regression Suite Automation Tool (RSAT) and TheTestMart.

What is RSAT?

RSAT is a Microsoft tool that lets you record business tasks using the Task Recorder and convert them into automated tests without writing code. RSAT is fully integrated with Azure DevOps for test execution, reporting, and investigation. Test parameters are decoupled from test steps and stored in Microsoft Excel files.

RSAT is designed to help you perform user acceptance testing (UAT) of Dynamics 365 before you take a Microsoft application update or apply custom code and configurations to your production environment. RSAT can also be used for regression testing to ensure that changes do not affect existing functionality.

What is TheTestMart?

TheTestMart is an AI-powered automated testing solution that fundamentally changes how businesses test and maintain their ERP business solutions. Our smart application enables businesses to access predefined test scripts from a library of over 300 standard tests, recommend test scripts based on data in the system, and rapidly develop tests via a Smart Recorder for more complex processes.

TheTestMart simplifies the testing process at every step: test creation, test maintenance, test execution, reporting, and remediation. We also offer a unique service of automatically updating your test scripts whenever new versions of Dynamics 365 are released. We guarantee that your test scripts will continue to function properly after a version update.

How do they compare?

Here are some key aspects to consider when choosing an automated testing tool for Dynamics 365:

  • Ease of use: Both tools allow you to create test scripts without coding. However, TheTestMart has a more user-friendly interface that lets you drag and drop components to create or modify test cases. TheTestMart also has a Smart Recorder feature that can create test scripts from your actions on the screen. Additionally, TheTestMart provides prebuilt test libraries for various Dynamics 365 modules and ISV products that you can use or customize as needed.
  • Test maintenance: RSAT requires you to manually update your test scripts whenever there are changes in the UI, data, or flow of Dynamics 365. This can be tedious and time-consuming, especially if you have many test cases or complex scenarios. TheTestMart eliminates this hassle by automatically updating your test scripts for you whenever new versions of Dynamics 365 are released. You don’t have to worry about your test scripts breaking or becoming obsolete whenever Microsoft releases new versions.
  • Test execution: Both tools integrate with Azure DevOps for test execution, reporting, and investigation. TheTestMart offers a significant advantage by taking care of test script execution for you. You just have to inform our Customer Success Team about your desired testing schedule, and they will handle the script running and provide you with the results. You can also schedule Test Plans to run using our solution. For example, many customers schedule their test scripts to run overnight so they can review the results when they come in the next day.  This eliminates up to 90% of the time typically spent on testing and result remediation compared to manual testing.
  • Reporting and remediation: TheTestMart goes beyond just providing the tool and the test results. Our test results include videos, Microsoft Word, and PDF documents, which makes it easier to pinpoint test failures. Each video will highlight where the failure occurred so you can quickly jump to that spot in the video to understand the issue and work to resolve it quickly. This allows you to swiftly identify and resolve any issues and rerun the test scripts.

Converting RSAT Test Scripts

TheTestMart goes beyond most testing tools on the market by making it painless to convert your RSAT Scripts to tests within our system.  If you have already invested a lot of time creating RSAT tests, this will allow you to get started with TheTestMart much more quickly than starting from scratch.


As you can see, RSAT and TheTestMart are useful tools for automated testing of Dynamics 365. However, TheTestMart has some clear advantages over RSAT regarding ease of use, test maintenance, test execution, reporting, and remediation. TheTestMart provides a tool and a service that takes care of the entire testing process for you. TheTestMart can help you save time, money, and effort while ensuring your Dynamics 365 system is always up-to-date and working as expected.
