Version 12.0 is focused on making testing throughout the development cycle as quick and effective as possible, so you can obtain actionable feedback as early as possible.
Features like network tunneling enable better early validation by developers, while debugging data for tests that were not completed reduce automation maintenance efforts.

This version also fully supports iOS 12 GA version.



Main Release Highlights:

Network tunnel

Create a network connection between local servers or staged applications and remote devices located in the Digital Assurance Lab. The network tunnel expands your testing possibilities to applications that were previously inaccessible to test on an external environment.
This functionality enables early application validation before performing a build or using staging environments.



Single Sign-On

Support for SAML 2.0 SSO allows users to use their enterprise credentials when accessing the Digital Assurance Lab, creating a streamlined user experience and enhanced security.
Administrators can manage cloud user access in their existing SSO system, avoiding duplication and errors.



Manual browser testing

Take screenshots and generate videos of your exploratory browser tests. Easily report issues and share exact scenario information with team members for rapid debugging.


Debug data for incomplete test

SeeTest Reporter now contains debug data not only for failed tests, but also for tests that were not completed. Speed up fault resolution and improve test maintenance and stability by extending your ability to debug failures and better identify application or test suite issues.
