I am currently a QA lead at Nike, leading a team of 6 in manual and automated testing efforts.

Prior to Nike, I was at Webtrends for 2+ years, and prior to that was at Microsoft for 13 years. During my time at Microsoft my responsibilities evolved from test planning and manual testing on various projects to --> writing automation and overseeing manual testing efforts from vendors to --> Developing automation tools and processes for the Windows Live organization including a web UI automation framework and a test result reporting platform as well as other smaller tools. At Webtrends I was the most senior automation engineer and was responsible for creating and executing on an automation plan for the company. We went from no automation to significant coverage via UI automation for both of our legacy products as well as near 100% web service automation for one of our new products. In addition, I created performance test suites for 3 products and was involved in hiring 5 additional developers in test for the company.

At my company we have also created custom solutions for much of this. I would love to see a response from someone with some tools that have "everything" you would need, but I don't know of any. It seems like a pretty big gap in the industry if you ask me.

Do you really want to randomize the signal, or do you want to completely control it, with the ability to vary the signal strength? Randomizing the signal does not seem like the best approach for testing purposes, while varying the signal could be useful.

I haven't used the form based input from SoapUI pro (I have only used the free version) but it seems like for manual testing purposes you can use tools such as Fiddler, or browser plug-ins such as Postman.

That's true, especially if there is authentication, what will be recorded and played back by default is a session cookie, which will change with each log in, so you would need to execute the login request, extract the session cookie info and replace the session cookie in all future requests with that one, but that's a whole different question :-)

When you said "doesn't work" do you mean nothing happens, or an exception occurs? It could be an issue of an incorrect css identifier, but we don't have the button html to see if that is the case. Can you include the page's html, or the relevant part of it? We could then create css, xpath or alternative identifiers for you that would work.
