    You will now receive more detailed error messages when your device query does not match any available device.

  • Appium: applicationClearData with autoGrantPermissions
    You can now use the autoGrantPermissions and applicationClearData desired capabilities during the same test execution. Your application data will be cleared, but the permissions will remain enabled.

  • Appium Server: JSON Exception

  • Appium: Chromedriver Auto Download
    Appium Server will now download the required chromedriver automatically during Android web tests. For environments without internet access, please refer to the Cloud Management documentation.

  • Appium Grid - Improvement on driver.get method

  • Cleanup improvements on IOS devices
    The issue with web cleanup failing on iPAD devices has been fixed now.

    The issue with emulators going to unauthorized state has been fixed and the launch process has been improved

  • Android - New device support
    All models for Samsung Galaxy S23 are now supported

    The tests were getting skipped status as the xcui reports did not include finishing part. Now that has been fixed so all the test run with xcode14 will now be in finished status (either passed or failed)

  • SeeTest Automation- iOS Alerts handling
    The alert management rules created on cloud will now apply for devices from STA as Automation session instead of seeing it as IDLE mode.

  • iOS Apps - Plugin signing
    Added a new way to sign the app and plugin with custom profiles for apps that are built with plugin and uploaded to cloud.

    We fixed a bug that prevented users from being able to open a new window via automation

Notes and Known Issues
