Here are some highlights from the recent Rational Test 10.1.1 release
IBM Rational Test Automation Server (RTAS) is a web-based platform built on modern, cloud native technologies. To address the problem of scaling testing of modern applications, Rational Test team expanded RTAS’s capabilities to support Kubernetes and Redhat OpenShift in our previous 10.1 release in June, 2020.10.1.1 focussed on incorporating user feedback and adding in some improvements to Mobile testing and Service Virtualization
Users would then be able to view execution status and report from within RTAS
Added support for later browser versions since 10.1*:• FF - 79.0 (64-bit), tested with78, 79 • Chrome - 84 , 85, tested with 84, 85 • Edge Legacy – 44.1, tested with 44.1 • EdgeChromium(aka new edge) – 84, tested with 84
Save As option for dataset editing: A user can now do a save as from datasets listing tab and changes tab. It is accessed from the ... button under actions
Published reports links added to console logs for RPT external integrations. Post test execution from integration tools, the published reports information from RTAS will be displayed along with the verdict for the RPT test execution.
Visibility of telemetry when running an API test in RTAS. RIT now generates Jarger traces when executing suites
RIT will automatically include the CR LF characters on all lines for Data Driven Swift content. Earlier when working with data driven Swift content, line feed (LF) based content did not contain Swift required new line carriage return (CR) pairing. For example, Excel uses only LF characters for new line characters. Option now available to normalize new line characters, which completes CR LF pairings.
Reading and updating a tag from within a custom function - Customers can augment the functionality offered by RIT by writing their own Custom Functions and adding these into the Functions folder of a project. This change was made as there was no method available that allowed users to read the value of a tag as part of work they were doing within a custom function.
Setting a timeout on a RunCommand action - This change will allow users to specify an amount of time allowed for a Run Command Action to complete. Time specified in milliseconds.
New warning if the user has forgotten to add the signing extension when using their own certificate with the HTTP Proxy
