Happy New Year Katalians!
We hope you had a great holiday season and have enjoyed a productive start to 2022. Here at Katalon, we’ve been hard at work preparing the first 2022 release of TestOps. This release includes support for the public release of Katalon TestCloud and test suite creation and execution from within TestOps. Read on to learn more.
TestOps users are now able to try TestCloud, Katalon’s cloud-based SaaS automated test execution solution. TestCloud allows customers to go from zero to multiple parallel test execution pipelines to expedite automated testing execution and reduce the pressure to limit/reduce quality testing, or worse delay software releases, due to resource constraints or time.
Users often need to refresh/reload the latest changes from their script repository in order to run the latest version of an automated test. Users can now update their test scripts from their script repository from three different areas within TestOps:
- Test Management
- Script Repository
- Schedule Test Run
We’ve added additional support for the leading Git-based source code management providers. You can now integrate TestOps into your provider of choice and elevate your TestOps processes. Managing your test scripts in a repository versus a file location is a critical step in elevating your ability to work within DevOps pipelines.
When a user integrates a supported script repository, they will be able to:
- Browse the test cases and test suites of a Katalon Studio project in that script repo in Test Management.
- Select a test suite/collection directly from a dropdown list to schedule a test run.
- Create a new test suite using test scripts from that script repo and execute it on their chosen environments on TestOps.
Updated list of supported repositories:
- Azure Repos
- Coming soon (Q1 2022): Amazon CodeCommit
In previous releases, in order to execute a collection of test cases on TestOps, the user needed to create (1) a test suite out of those test cases, (2) a test suite collection in Katalon Studio using that test suite, then (3) push to the script repository, and (4) refresh the repository on TestOps, and finally (5) schedule a test run using the test suite collection.
With this release, the same process takes only two steps: (1) users can now create a new test suite using test cases from an integrated script repo directly in TestOps, and (2) then use the new test suite to schedule test runs. This greatly simplifies and centralizes test suite management within TestOps, and allows for greater collaboration between QA and DevOps teams.
In previous TestOps releases, test suites were extracted from test execution data and displayed in a “flat list.” Essentially, there was no way to navigate a folder structure of the test suites. A new Test Suite Directory view has been added to the Test Suite view that delivers an improved user experience for viewing and navigating test suites.
