    This pattern can be very useful to automate actions that are repeated very often and almost never change, for instance set-ups.
    If you capture a test not only as a script but also as video clip you can get the information you need to automate it even if testers have no time to support you.

    Potential problems
    If people are not working on the automation as a FULL TIME JOB, there may be problems as other priorities may take their time away from the automation effort.
    Another possible problem occurs when many DevOps teams develop test automation independently (look up the issue LOCALISED REGIMES*)
    Issues addressed by this pattern
    HARD-TO-AUTOMATE RESULTS
    ...
    The project team consists of 1 Project Lead (PL), 2 functional analysts, 1 java architect, 3 developers and 1 tester / test analyst / test coordinator.
    Due to the two-week interval between sprints, I can't keep up with the pace of what the developers produce. So instead of automating all the tests cases myself, I shifted my work towards designing the high level test cases and reviewing the low level test cases which are written by the developers themselves (but reflect my high level test design).
    * This problem has been pointed out by Vincent Wijnen
