What's New in TestArchitect 8.5

The following new features and improvements are introduced in the latest version of TestArchitect running on Windows.

TestArchitect Client

Enhancements to existing features

  • Delete a TestArchitect repository: Now when you delete a repository using the TestArchitect Repository Server Control Panel, you no longer have to stop the repository first, you can delete it immediately.

TestArchitect Automation

New features

  • SAP automation support: SAP software includes many powerful enterprise tools. From now on, TestArchitect supports interacting with SAP, with a focus on SAP BW (Business Warehouse).

    Built-In Actions for SAP: New Built-In Actions specifically for working with SAP tree-list and tree-table.

Enhancements to existing features

  • Support for Chrome 79 and Firefox 71: Now you can run automated tests for web pages displayed in the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox.

    Python 3: TestArchitect now supports using Python 3 to implement TestArchitect actions.

Known Issues

  • Firefox 70+:There is an issue with geckodriver. Some computers may experience issues when navigating in webdriver mode.

  • Due to changes in the WebDriver coordinate calculation algorithm, there may be a slight deviation of coordinates in relevant built-in actions with Generic Web Driver Mode (GWD) on Chrome 75. For precision, please re-calculate your positions and coordinates.
    Note: These changes do not effect non-GWD mode.

  • Certain BIA may not behave we expected when SAP cells are obscured by a scrollbar or off the screen. It's best to use the TestArchitect scroll action to reveal the full table before using actions on table cells.

  • When using the action Count Child Node on an SAP Tree List control, you must first use the expand Built-In Action.

  • SAP BW controls use a lazy loading method, so please make sure that you make them visible first (manually or with a BIA) before interacting with them in order to get correct results.
