The present subject matter is directed to systems and methods for automating the testing of multi-function systems, such as naming registration systems and the like. A method of testing a registry, and the like, may include providing a command phrase including an add command and at least one function that includes an artificial attribute for a domain added by the add command. The command phrase may specify an operation, a protocol, and an object. The operation may include at least one of add, delete, or update domain. The protocol may include at least one of RRP and EPP. One or more parameters associated with the command phrase may be provided and may include an expected response code and/or a variable. One or more additional parameters that are associated with the command phrase may be determined and a database may be accessed to provide the one or more additional parameters. The command phrase, the one or more additional parameters, and/or the one or more additional parameters may be translated into an XML command and the XML command transmitted to the registry, or the like. A response from the registry may be evaluated to determine potential problems with database.
