I have the understanding that Automation Scripts need to be built on a stable build (application). I mean once manual QA signs off, to reduce their burden on regression/repeated testing, we Automate test cases.
It is not fair to ask the Automation team to build scripts on developing the build.
However, I don't have a best practices article or a page from the Automation Community to support my statement. How can I convince a demanding client?
It looks like a workplace question/situation but it isn't. It is actually (and literally what I am looking for) about Automation best practice (automate stable application) and any supporting document/page in its favor.
