What's new in TestArchitect for macOS

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


TestArchitect Client

New features
  • Standardized TestArchitect test result status:
    • Current result statuses, including Passed, Failed, Passed with Warnings/Errors, Passed with Known Bugs, and Not Run, are refined in such a way that the conditions and interpretations are consistent and are administered in a standard manner. This limits false positive and false negative errors that might occur in test results.
    • Adding a new result status, Not Finished: Reviewing test results is easier, because this new status helps you distinguish the cases in which a test is started, but it is unable to reach the end of an automated run.
      Please note that, the number of automation errors/warnings, and passed/failed checkpoints do not matter in this case. Specifically:

TestArchitect Automation

Enhancements to existing features
  • Web services testing improvements:
    • Amazon Web Services (AWS) support: TestArchitect allows you to run automated tests on AWS which enables you to remove hardware-based resource constraints to quickly create developer environments and expand your testing machine fleet.
      Remember: When you send HTTP requests to AWS, you are required to sign the requests so that AWS can identify who sent them. To sign a request, you first need to calculate signature (learn more).
    • A new parameter for the Encoder configuration:
      • addDefaultContentCharsetToContentType: Tells whether REST Assured should automatically append the content charset to the content-type header if content charset is not defined explicitly.
    • Support for HTTP digest authentication: TestArchitect provides you with additional approach for specifying web service credentials which is Digest Authentication. To work with web services that require Digest authentication, use the authenticate built-in action.
    • Support for writing responses to a file in TestArchitect: You are able to save binary data files embedded in the given web service's HTTP response. The response file argument of send http request specifies a filename and an extension of the stored file.
