    Hello Krishna,

    Here are key differences between sanity testing & smoke testing:

    Sanity Testing:
    – Sanity Test is done during the release phase to check for the main functionalities of the application without going deeper
    – Sanity testing is usually performed by testers only
    – Sanity Testing exercises only the particular component of the entire application & not documented.

    Smoke Testing:
    – Smoke Test is done to make sure if the build we received from the development team is testable or not.
    – This testing is performed by the developers or testers
    – Smoke Testing exercises the entire application from end to end & documented.
