User Acceptance testing is simulating the target end user or client or business environment in context to business requirements.

Is done in 2 ways depending upon the project/product.

Separate team knowledgeable with BUSINESS underdones UAT.

UAT is the last phase of testing, where tester(functional) has very less role.
Hi,

User acceptance testing is often the final step before rolling out the appllication. Usually the end user who will be use the application test the application before accepting the application.

Following are the steps taken to test the user acceptance testing typically
1) User Acceptance Test (UAT) Planning
2) Designing UA Test Cases
3) Selecting a Team that would execute the (UAT) Test Cases
4) Executing Test Cases
5) Documenting the Defects found during UAT
6) Resolving the issues/Bug Fixing
7) Sign Off
User Acceptance Test (UAT) Planning:
As always the Planning Process is the most important of all the steps. This affects the effectiveness of the Testing Process. The Planning process outlines theUser Acceptance Testing Strategy. It also describes the key focus areas, entry and exit criteria.

Designing UA Test Cases:

The User Acceptance Test Cases help the Test Execution Team to test the application thoroughly. This also helps ensure that the UA Testing provides sufficient coverage of all the scenarios.
The Use Cases created during the Requirements definition phase may be used as inputs for creating Test Cases. The inputs from Business Analysts and Subject Matter Experts are also used for creating.

Each User Acceptance Test Case describes in a simple language the precise steps to be taken to test something.

The Business Analysts and the Project Team review the User Acceptance Test Cases.

Selecting a Team that would execute the (UAT) Test Cases:
Selecting a Team that would execute the UAT Test Cases is an important step.
The UAT Team is generally a good representation of the real world end users.
The Team thus comprises of the actual end users who will be using the application.

Executing Test Cases:
The Testing Team executes the Test Cases and may additional perform random Tests relevant to them

Documenting the Defects found during UAT:

The Team logs their comments and any defects or issues found during testing.

Resolving the issues/Bug Fixing:
The issues/defects found during Testing are discussed with the Project Team, Subject Matter Experts and Business Analysts. The issues are resolved as per the mutual consensus and to the satisfaction of the end users.

Sign Off:
Upon successful completion of the User Acceptance Testing and resolution of the issues the team generally indicates the acceptance of the application. This step is important in commercial software sales. Once the User “Accept” the Software delivered they indicate that the software meets their requirements.

Great explanations.

Hi Pallavi,

Once the application is ready to be released then crucial step is User Acceptance Testing.

Usually the end users who will be using the applications test the application before ‘accepting’ the application.

This type of testing gives the end users the confidence that the application being delivered to them meets their requirements. (before releasing or build given to Customer we have to sure that all user acceptance is full filled or not if its not then we can't release the product to customer , as per user defined requirement we have to provide good product to valuable customer )

User Acceptance testing can be done by two different ways

1. ALPHA Testing : is usually performed by enduser/client inside the development organization,testing is done in a controlled environment,developers are present.
2.BETA Testing : is usually performed by enduser/client outside the development organization and inside the endusers organizaton,environment is not under control,developers are not present.
Hi Pallavi,

User Acceptance Testing is conducted by end user to ensure whether to accept the system or not. It means that End user will check that whether the system is meeting all the requirement or not as per business.

In User Acceptance Testing, there are two types of testing. 1) Alpha testing and Beta testing.

Alpha testing is conducted by end user in off-site i.e in the development environment
This testing conducted nearly the completion of the project. In this testing minor bug may be appear. This testing also called as Pre-Release of testing.


Beta Testing is conducted by end user in the on-site i.e in the client environment. This testing is conducted to check bug is fix or not which is found in Alpha testing. In this testing there will be not developer or tester.

What is User Acceptance Testing?

User Acceptance Testing is often the final step before rolling out the application.

Usually the end users who will be using the applications test the application before ‘accepting’ the application.

This type of testing gives the end users the confidence that the application being delivered to them meets their requirements.

This testing also helps nail bugs related to usability of the application.

User Acceptance Testing – Prerequisites:

Before the User Acceptance testing can be done the application is fully developed.
Various levels of testing (Unit, Integration and System) are already completed before User Acceptance Testing is done. As various levels of testing have been completed most of the technical bugs have already been fixed before UAT.

User Acceptance Testing – What to Test?

To ensure an effective User Acceptance Testing Test cases are created.
These Test cases can be created using various use cases identified during the Requirements definition stage.
The Test cases ensure proper coverage of all the scenarios during testing.

During this type of testing the specific focus is the exact real world usage of the application. The Testing is done in an environment that simulates the production environment.
The Test cases are written using real world scenarios for the application

User Acceptance Testing – How to Test?

The user acceptance testing is usually a black box type of testing. In other words, the focus is on the functionality and the usability of the application rather than the technical aspects. It is generally assumed that the application would have already undergone Unit, Integration and System Level Testing.

However, it is useful if the User acceptance Testing is carried out in an environment that closely resembles the real world or production environment.

The steps taken for User Acceptance Testing typically involve one or more of the following:
.......1) User Acceptance Test (UAT) Planning
.......2) Designing UA Test Cases
.......3) Selecting a Team that would execute the (UAT) Test Cases
.......4) Executing Test Cases
.......5) Documenting the Defects found during UAT

The users now confident of the software solution delivered and the vendor can be paid for the same.

User Acceptance Testing (UAT)is the final hurdle in the development and deployment of any software solution. 

UAT Processes cover:

  • Functionality
  • Business process flow
  • Interfaces
  • Alerts
  • Reports
  • Batch processing

UAT engagements reduce design timelines, improves test coverage, provide deep subject matter expertise and test scenarios.

User acceptance is a type of testing performed by the Client to certify the system with respect to the requirements that was agreed upon. This testing happens in the final phase of testing before moving the software application to Market or Production environment.

Here is an answer to your query. Please check this link - http://bit.ly/1yktw6

User Acceptance testing (UAT) is the last stage of the software testing processor the test planning process. Amidst UAT, real software users test the product to ensure it can deal with required tasks in real situations, as indicated by specifications.

Give us a chance to put this idea to test. UAT resembles User Acceptance Testing. We comprehend what testing is, acceptance implies agreement or approval. Client with regards to a software product is either the buyer of the product or the individual who asked for it to be developed for him/her (customer).

When is it performed?

This is ordinarily the last stage before the software application or the product goes live or before the conveyance of the product is acknowledged. UAT is after the item itself is altogether tried (i.e after system testing).

UAT Planning:

The procedure is nearly the same as with the regular test plan for the system stage. The most widely recognized methodology followed in a large portion of the projects is to get ready for both system and UAT testing stages together. For more info. on UAT test plan and an example, look at the joined test plan report’s UAT areas.

Design Phase:

In view of the criteria, we (QA team) give them the clients a rundown of UAT test cases. UAT test cases are not unique in relation to our regular system test cases. They are only a sub set since we test the majority of the application rather than simply the key functional areas. It may include both functional and non-functional testing.

Execution Phase:

More often than not, whenever feasible, UAT happens in a meeting or war room kind of a set up where the clients, PM, QA team delegates all sit together for a day or two and work our work through all the acceptance test cases.
