LegiTest Features

Comprehensive Test Coverage

Accurate data is necessary to any successful business. LegiTest offers users comprehensive test coverage for data-centric applications. It covers all aspects of the SQL Server stack, including SSAS, SSIS & SSRS, as well as any database with OLE DB, ODBC, or ADO.Net interfaces. LegiTest interacts with your data centric applications and will verify the results of your code and data.

Production Data Comparison

BI projects frequently interact with data stored in multiple locations and formats. LegiTest allows you to compare data across different platforms.

Test The Way You Want

Some testing tools expect you to adhere to a rigid format. LegiTest allows you to easily setup the necessary elements for your test, and to clean up afterwards. In addition, it support multiple execution tracks for tests, and lets you control the steps in the testing process.


With LegiTest, users are provided a responsive user interface that integrates into Visual Studio. Tests can be created using an easy graphical interface. There is no need to write code and complicated operations are wrapped up into easy to use actions and assertions.


While it is not required to write code in LegiTest, some users may want to add their own custom logic to the tests. LegiTest supports the addition of custom actions, assertions, and you can extend your test code directly.

Integrates with Existing Systems

Worried about how LegiTest will work with the systems you already have in place? It easily integrates with the products and processes you are currently using. It will generate tests that use common testing frameworks (MSTest, NUnit), and integrates well with build processes using TFS, Team City or MSBuild.

Problems Solved by LegiTest

How do you test your data-centric development today?

Most users are currently not testing their data thoroughly, using multiple products or are doing so manually. LegiTest provides users the ability to accurately test their data in one automated platform.

LegiTest provides a single, comprehensive tool to ensure all aspects of your data-centric development are valid and legitimate.
