HI,

I was trying hobs authoring testing in AEM 6.2 and was working fine.

But when I was trying the same authoring in AEM 6.1, it was not allowing the authoring experience as we have the tests from developer mode.

Is there a way to achieve this authoring automation through hobs ?

Hi Opkar,

I searched the same, but hobbes get open in Developer mode in AEM 6.1 which is not allowing us to edit any component.

The functionality which we can automate is the website user experience but we want to automate the authoring experience by editing a component.

Thanks,

For editing of the component,Edit Mode is recommended. Developer mode executes the test written in Hobbs.JS.

But, if your use case is to do testing on edit mode only, then i would say use Selenium.

Doc:- https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-2/develop/test/testing/tools.html

I would still ask, internal adobe to get recommended way for this.

https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-1/develop/components/hobbes.html Seems to work, maybe there was an issue on the server when you tried.

Hi,

I wont suggest doing automation software testing on AEM author because the components will keep on changing and it will be very difficult to get a particular selector.

For example if you are selecting the button using the cssSelector with data-path, what if the button is changed, few more buttons are added before the particular button you are targeting.
