3-week sprint, 2-days testing against staging and 1-day testing against qa. qa environment is only up for the duration of 1 day as it costs a bit money to have it running on AWS. We have established automated tests but it is not uncommon for them to fail against qa.
The solution I can think of is to establish a suite of manual tests that we can execute in case of automated test suite against qa fails, given there is not enough time to fix broken automated test in such a short time frame. (we can fix them later, but different ones break from time to time)
Before I present this approach to the management, I think I should have a proper name for this kind of manual test suite. Do we have a terminology for this kind of tests already?
