Released 25 September 2019 ,  Release notes home   

The Highlights:

 Performance: HAR File as Part of Transaction Report and Improved Filtering

In version 12.7 we announced the first installment of our much anticipated UI Performance Testing offering - manual testing.
Version 12.8 significantly expanded this offering and we announced its second installment that included automation, transaction video reports and a report repository in Reporter. 
In this Version which is 12.9 we are happy to announce
our third installment which includes HAR files as part of transaction reports and improved UX and filtering capabilities for the transaction report repository.  

HAR File as Part of Transaction Report: This feature enables users to automatically collect HAR file on each transaction from transaction report for both Manual and Grid.

Improved UX and Filtering Capabilities in Transaction Report Repository: This feature enables users to filter transactions per additional parameters such as duration of transaction and CPU Usage. In addition, users can configure the headers of the repository table per their priorities.

Supported for both Selenium Grid and Manual sessions.

Notes and Known Issues

  • HSQLDB end of life: Cloud Server does not support the HSQLDB database, and supports only the PostgresSQL database, please see Cloud Server

  • Due to Apple's announcement re discontinue of iTunes, we reinforce our recommendation that DHM will be deployed on macOS. This will guarantee support for new Apple models and iOS versions and opens up the full functionality of iOS (remote debugging, XUITest, Appium native, etc.).

  • Multi-Region Clarifications: Devices in a remote region can be used on SeeTest Manual and Automation for web (not desktop version), Eclipse/IntelliJ Plugins and grid tests.
    SeeTest Automation and Appium Studio do not support devices in remote regions.

  • Please see the updated System Requirements

New Features

  Scheduled Support Data

Allow Cloud Server to collect support data on a scheduled basis. Cloud Server will collect automatically support data and save it in the server machine.

This will allow to share the support data with the Experitest support team without the need to collect it again and to remove the need from the tester to collect the support data as part of the test execution.

  Cloud Project Page - Add Notes field

Allow to add notes to a project for better management. 

  Audit LogAdd logs for user management events (create/edit/delete/assign to project...).

  Cloud Logs Improvement

Allow to configure the number of log files and the log file size for most of the cloud components.

  Execution Page - Allow users to see all project grid sessions

Cloud Admin can configure a project that enables users to view other users tests under the same project, for better collaboration and synchronization inside the project team members.
