Powershell Commands in SP2016 Part-I

With SharePPoint 2016 some new Powershell Cmdlets have arrived. I would like to share some of the new powershell cmdlets for SP2016 with a brief overview of each. Some cmdlets I will describe in this post and some cmdlets in next post.

SharePoint 2016 has introduced a new functionality for Site Template deployment called “Site Masters”. These are master Site Templates, configured by a SharePoint Administrator, that allow quick deployment of a Site Template when a new SharePoint Site is requested.

Creating new site master can be done through power shell cmdlet very easily.

Also, some cmdlets are added for controlling the services to make the administrator's job easy.

Lets have a glimpse at  some of new cmdlets:
Add-DatabaseToAvailabilityGroup  This cmdlet adds one or more databases from a SharePoint farm into an availability group in SQL Server.

Eg. Add-DatabaseToAvailabilityGroup -AGName MyAvailabilityGroup -DatabaseName WSS_Content -FileShare \\backup\share\ Copy-SPAccessServicesDa…

Best Testing Practices In Agile Methodologies

To do testing in Agile,is not an easy task as agile is dynamic and focusing on "inspect-and-adapt" approach. QA should be ready to adapt changes at any level of Testing. QA/Tester has to focus on each & every stages of product and team collaboration require more. There are more chances of errors, as in agile, documentations are less important. So pressure comes on QA in that case.

There are some best practices for testing which I would like to share so you can deliver customer satisfied and stable product.

1. Understand requirement as per Customer perspective and provide Value-Added Suggestions if any needed.
- Understand all the requirements in detail and the acceptance criteria.
- While understanding think as a End User i.e. How easily it can be usable for end user and provide feedback and suggestions as per that.
- Be thoughtful and bold enough to give proper and timely feedback.

2. Create strong Test Scenari…

Introduction to CSS Viewport Units

CSS viewport units are not alien to us now. They have been there around for few years now. Its no wonder it was not with full browser support earlier but at moment, they are supported in all major browsers including IE10+ versions. The viewport is the visible area of a web page and viewport unit is relative to that viewport size, unlike percentage unit which is relative to its parent.
What are these units? These are actually relative length units and hence efficient for responsive layouts. There are four viewport units.

Viewport height (vh) = As it's name states, it is based on height of the viewport. Thus 1vh = 1% of viewport height.

Viewport Width (vw) = It is relative to its viewport width. 1vw = 1% of viewport width.

Viewport Minimum (vmin) = Based on smaller dimension of the viewport. Either width or height, whatever is smaller, vmin will be related to that. 5vmin = 5% of current viewport height or width, whichever is smaller.

Viewport Maximum (vmax) = Based on larger dimension …

Tricks To Find Maximum Bugs In Least Time

As a Quality Engineer we have to find all the hidden bugs with all types of severities from the Software.QA has to find bugs in less time so we can get an idea that Software is deliverable or not at the early stage and we can reduce failure of an application.

I as a QA find maximum bugs from any application and I love to report bugs. Here are some of the tricks to find maximum bugs in less amount of time:
1. Get understanding of Software in detail before starting testing. Get Understanding of Functionality Get idea about how client is going to use our Software Get an information that which platform/technology is going to be used In short get thorough understanding of requirement and functionality. 2. Prepare Test Scenarios and Test Cases which include all areas i.e. Functional, UI/UX, Non-Functional etc. 3. Prepare Test Data which include Test Conditions, Boundaries, Positive and Negative test data, Permutat…
