Managing regression with a codebot

All software projects should be managing regression that can be introduced from release to release by developers or from outside factors.

Working with a codebot as a member of your team is no different.

A codebot operates within a strict set of constraints to enable the output to be deterministic. Provided we are following the rules outlined by:

With this in mind, we still need to ensure that we adjust or expand our tests to cover new custom code or any modified bot written code. These changes will ensure that our test suite can assist in detecting regression as would be the normal practice when developing with a human colleague.

Details on testing can be found in Custom Tests with SpringBot and Custom Tests with C#Bot.
