What's New in TestArchitect 8.4 Update 4

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

TestArchitect Client

New features

  • Distributed Result Storage - This feature allows you to store test results across multiple locations as an alternative to a centralized repository in TestArchitect Client. Hence, you could connect to local or shared network storage space that contains TestArchitect result. All *.taresult files will be loaded and displayed on the Explorer tree. Moreover, the workload for Repository Server will be reducing and result uploading time will be increasing.

Enhancements to existing features

  • Zephyr 6.2 is fully supported. Now TestArchitect communicates with the Zephyr server using the Zephyr REST API. This protocol helps you easily interact with Amazon Web Services.

  • The TestArchitect handles Deputy for Running test with multiple remote desktop sessions.

  • The TestArchitect supported platforms are supplemented with Windows Server 2019 (WPF and MFC).

  • Automatically uploading TestArchitect test results to Team Foundation Server - Previously, you could only upload test result(s) to TFS with TFS Helper uploading method. From 8.4 Update 4 onwards, the TestArchitect supports one more method using REST API.

TestArchitect Automation

Enhancements to existing features

  • Support capturing screenshot with Generic WebDriver mode - TestArchitect captures screenshots in accordance with the new rule. This kind of capturing provides the capability to capture more than one web page simultaneously, headless browser(s) and minimize window(s).

  • Support for Chrome 73 and Firefox 66: Now you can run automated tests for web pages displayed in the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox.
