testRigor vs. Datadog

Looking for an intelligent automation tool to minimize the testing effort and cost to achieve faster test completion? testRigor is an AI-powered automation tool that caters solely to all your testing needs. Datadog is a monitoring tool for cloud-scale applications used by DevOps and IT to monitor databases, servers, services, etc.

Why testRigor?

Below is a detailed comparison of testRigor and Datadog to help you make an informed decision. Have a look and decide which tool best suits your requirements!
Generative AI-based Test Creation
You can generate all test steps within seconds based on test case titles using testRigor's Generative AI engine.
Ease of Use by Non-Technical People

testRigor offers three simple methods for creating tests:

  1. utomatically generate test steps using generative AI.
  2. Write test cases in plain English using advanced NLP without coding or automation knowledge. Use text visible on the UI as locators and avoid complex CSS and XPath locators.
  3. Record actions as test steps using the test recorder.

Datadog's test recorder records user actions and converts them to test steps. The recorder extension does not automatically record some steps, such as hover, key press, scroll, and wait, which must then be manually added.

Another option is to write programs using Datadog APIs and Terraform, which is impossible for a non-technical person.
Supported Applications
Desktop Web Testing

testRigor supports desktop web, mobile web, desktop native app, and mobile app testing for Android and iOS, i.e., basically everything. Use either emulators or actual physical devices for testing, as your choice.

Datadog does not support desktop native application testing. Only users with the Datadog Admin and Datadog Standard roles can create, edit, and delete synthetic mobile app tests by default.

Test Case Creation Features
Behavior-Driven Test Generation
testRigor provides the capability to use the features written in plain English by the business team as test cases. Here, the test cases are directly channeling user behavior.
Reusable Rules/ Subroutines
Create reusable rules for test steps that are repeated multiple times in test cases. testRigor requires just the rule's name in plain English to use it. It's super easy and convenient.
Email Testing

testRigor supports sending emails, receiving emails, sending attachments, and validating these three scenarios, all easily accomplished using plain English.

Datadog requires setting up a new email variable by clicking the “Variables” button when creating or editing a browser test.
Multi-Factor Authentication(MFA)

testRigor supports Gmail 2FA, OTP, TOTP.

Datadog supports only Time-based One Time Passwords (TOTP).
reCAPTCHA Resolution
testRigor helps automate image-to-text and Google reCAPTCHA easily.
Built-in Login Support

testRigor supports login with a single login command.

Datadog requires you to store your credentials as global variables and then import these global variables into browser tests for login. This approach is not very friendly.
Phone Call Testing
testRigor supports making calls using Twilio. It can validate that a call is ringing, answered, etc.
Sending SMS

testRigor supports sending and reading SMS using Twilio. You can validate if the SMS is delivered, sent, or failed and its contents.

Datadog uses Twilio to send SMS alerts via webhooks.
Geolocation Testing

testRigor works with geo locations and helps simulate “moving” the device.

Datadog offers geolocation support as part of monitoring services only for the app data by location.
File Upload
Use testRigor to upload single or multiple files in the test case with a simple command:
enter "<FILE_URL>" into file input "fileField"
Datadog uses its test recorder to create upload file test steps.
Audio Testing
Perform audio testing in testRigor by recording, comparing, playing, and validating audio files in tests with simple commands:
check that audio is playing
Downloaded File Testing

testRigor verifies file downloads and validates their contents using simple commands. Supported file types are PDFs, CSVs, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and more.

Datadog supports testing successful file downloads.
Video Testing
With testRigor, you can validate that the video is playing via a simple command:
check that video is playing
Test Execution Features
Run on Physical Devices
Both tools support testing on physical devices.
Parallel Test Runs
testRigor and Datadog support parallel test runs to achieve high-speed execution.
Customized Test Data

testRigor generates data based on the detected field type (with about 50 types), and you can also provide your test data. testRigor creates random data conforming to a specific format every time the test runs.

Datadog provides support for customized test data, such as emails. However, this support is not as expansive as what testRigor offers.
Reporting Features
Screenshots and Reports
Both testRigor and Datadog provide good reporting features.
Recorded Video of Test Execution
Only testRigor provides recorded video of test execution.
Both tools provide self-healing capabilities.
Free Trial

testRigor offers unlimited free access, and a free private trial.

Datadog trial setup only supports a 14-day trial period. You need to install Datadog Agent in your environment to get started with any service.
