sharepoint online functional testing

My team is doing a Sharepoint Online migration. I'm a functional tester and would like to contribute with detecting broken links, testing site collections, document libraries, lists. While there isn't yet any server-side customizations that I could test, many of the site collections have been rolled out. Is there a script that can help to detect broken links? Is there a best practice for testing content? Are there scripts and test cases for functional testing?

Hi @MoralesEmmaLSTFCTR-0654,

I'm not familiar with PowerShell script, but per my knowledge you could use some third party tools to detect broken links. You could get more detials from the following discussion.

Hi @MoralesEmmaLSTFCTR-0654,

I'm checking how the things are going on about this issue. Is there any progress on this issue?

Hi Casey, I came across a post that mentioned Chrome extensions to detect broken links in a site collections. The extension works really good at detecting broken links. But it wont detect broken links within web parts, leading to the conclusion that the user will have to run the extension in each of the web parts within the site collection. I contributed this fining in the thread you share with me.

There is one more thing, the extension does not detect broken image tags or links in a child (sub page) site. Can you help find the Do's and Dont's of site content management
