Your partner in role testing

Users are not admins. Admins are not buyers. Buyers are not sellers. Testlio keeps your roles secure and organized with individualized permissions, verifications, and configurations.

Why perform role testing?

Role testing combines manual and automated methods to test different user types in an app (e.g., admin, coordinator, seller, buyer, viewer). It identifies security risks, verifies access, and finds bugs pre-release.

Secure access

  • Configure, secure, and validate role privileges and role-based permissions.
  • Grant, secure, and monitor access to specific features associated with pre-programmed or proprietary roles.
  • Test role-based security to validate the safety of sensitive data and remain compliant.

Role verification

  • Create and modify roles with associated authorizations, permissions, and authority checks.
  • Ensure that user roles are correctly executed within the system every time.
  • Map relationships between users, processes, and data.
