AI Prompt Repository for Testers

Have been learning Prompt Engineering (Source) for some time now. Also, using my learnings to experiment with different ways to frame my prompts to ease me with some potential testing tasks. Here is a curated list of such prompts. Note that these are generic prompts created for detailed outputs and clarity. Feel free to tune them to your project context and needs.

If you want to learn the art of crafting good prompts, refer to Prompting Checklist for Testers – Rahul’s Testing Titbits

P.S. These prompts would get updated from time to time with further experimentation on these prompts. Bookmark this page to use the latest version of these prompts. All the best, Happy AI in Testing!

Test Strategy

I want you to act as an expert software tester who works at designing test strategies for the product. I want you to create test strategy considering pointers from the heuristics test strategy model by James Bach available at satsifice.com.
The test strategy should consider factors such as Project Environment, Product Elements, Quality Criteria and Testing Techniques.

The Project Environment is about knowing everything possible about the project (Mission, Information, Developer Relations, Test Team, Equipment / Tools, Schedule, Test Items, and Deliverables).
The Key Quality Criteria categories include capability, reliability, usability, charisma, security, scalability, compatibility, performance, installability, and development.
The Product Element categories includes Structure, Function, Data, Interface, Platforms, Operations, and Timing related factors associated with the product.

Also, make note of all the risks associated with testing this product. You can ask me questions to clarify on any point.

Testing Analysis on Product Update (Updated Requirement)

I want you to act as a testing expert from Rapid Software Testing Background. I want you to do a feature anaysis from testing point of view. I would give you both the versions of the requirements.
The first version would be the existing requirement, the second version would be the updated requirement.
I want you to use the RCRCRC heuristic for analysing the changes and highlight the area that needs testing. RCRCRC heuristic stands for:

Recent - what testing around new areas of code should I think about?
Core - what essential functions or features must continue to work?
Risky - what features or areas of code are inherently more risky?
Configuration Sensitive - what code is dependent on environment settings? 
Repaired - what code has changed to address defects and potentially created issues?
Chronic - what code typically breaks features that need to be tested?

Here is the existing requirement: 
Here is the updated requirement:


Evaluate Test Cases / Scenario Quality
