Release Highlights:

Mobile test automation: Appium SeeTest Extension

This extension allows you to use special commands in standard Appium tests. These commands include actions that cannot be performed in Appium such as simulate capture, mock authentication, capture network data and more. 

[Appium SeeTest Extension (Java)]

Mobile test automation: new automation commands

These new commands can be used in your test to speed up test execution and cover more use cases.

  • Clear app data (iOS) - reset application data at the beginning of a test (ApplicationClearData)
  • Get application info - obtaining application information and use in test flow. For example: check application version and skip installation if it the required version. (getApplicationInfo)
  • Get location (Android)- Receive the defined device location of the device. Useful for testing location-based services. (GetLocation)

Reporting & analytics: additional data and more analytics options

  • TestNG and JUnit client-side failures data - now consolidated into SeeTest Reporter.  Availability of Debug and failure data improves the ability to identify failure cause. Supported

  • The number of tag fields available in SeeTest Reporter is now 1,000. Assigning more tag fields to tests enables intelligent analytics that drive decision making and faster resolution.

  • Finally, by popular demand, the default report ordering in the reports tab has been changed to latest reports first. 

Cross browser testing: streamlined automation

  • View live session - from grid execution, click open to see the test being executed.
  • Pop-up handling - pop up messages in selenium tests are closed automatically to avoid test failures.
