What Is UAT In Software Testing?

User Acceptance Testing (UAT) is a type of testing performed by the end-user or the client to verify/accept the software system before being released. Companies need to understand how their customers use their products and services to make changes that will improve customer satisfaction and loyalty.

UAT is an important part of the software development lifecycle. It’s when we test whether or not our clients and end-users are satisfied with the product before it goes live. This ensures that everyone involved is on board, making for a better final product.

UAT is the final stage of any software development life cycle. This is when actual users test the software to see if it can carry out the required tasks it was designed to address in real-world situations. 

If they cannot do so, there may be a problem with how well your product works or whether or not it meets their needs. It’s important that this testing happens before you release your product into production because otherwise, you risk losing customers and money due to poor-quality products.

User acceptance test (UAT) criteria are usually created by business customers and expressed in a business domain language. They describe the system’s characteristics that must be tested, like non-functional requirements such as performance, security, or usability. These criteria can also include requirements for data validation and error handling. 

The purpose of UAT is to ensure that the software meets user needs and expectations. It’s the final stage before a product goes live, so that it can be incredibly stressful for everyone involved. The developers are responsible for testing the product before it is released to customers. Business customers or other end-users usually perform UAT, and it can be done in parallel with development.
