Yes, Pega Unit testing is for automating unit tests for rules in Pega Application and is not manual testing.

When creating test data for automated tests, you now have more tools at your disposal and more fine-grained control. For example, you can separately define actions that will happen before and after rule execution during the test run.

You can also add multiple user pages from the clipboard and configure them. These pages will be copied to the clipboard at test run time.
