You are working in a test automation a beginner or an experienced QA Automation Test Engineer, you would have faced the below challenges like I have faced once & learned from them.

Let me explain some of the main test automation framework-related challenges based on my experience around it.

The first problem comes when you need to identify the right test cases to automate. Not all test cases can or should be automated. I hope you will agree.

Determining which test cases to automate and which ones to execute manually requires careful investigation, analysis, collaboration, and planning.

After you have overcome the first challenge now you need to update it from time to time.

Test scripts need to be updated frequently to ensure that they remain effective. This requires ongoing maintenance and testing of the test scripts to ensure they are up-to-date with the latest changes in the application.

Choosing the right tool for automation is a huge challenge.

Additionally, let’s say your application is dynamic in nature where data is frequently changing. This can lead to false positives and false negatives, requiring additional effort to debug and fix the tests.
