TestGear Release Notes: 10.4.23


Following on from our initial Dragonfly release, and according to the feedback from our users, TestGear has made some improvements. We have added in new long-awaited features including Dynamic Test Suites as well as other updates to optimize your testing performance.


Updates and new features:


Test suites improvements

  • Dynamic Test Suites are now available.

    • Dynamic test suites is a new way to define what tests should be included in the test plan. Unlike traditional tests suites that contain a fixed set of tests, dynamic test suites include tests based on a criteria such as status, priority or any user-defined attributes.

    • They are automatically updated whenever those attributes change, keeping the test plan always up to date without any additional effort.

    • For example, you can create a dynamic test suite that contains all the tests with tag ‘smoke’ to always run up-to-date set of tests related to the smoke testing.

  • Test plan top level now shows all content from the test suites within the plan so that you can observe the whole test plan in one place.


Test repository improvements

  • Now you can select how to view manual tests as a plain list or in the new format where tests are grouped by the section where they reside.


Import and export in the background

  • A background tasks mechanism has been included allowing you to continue working with TestGear even during the largest and most time-consuming import and export routines.


Archive management

  • New permissions in project roles have been added for archive management so that granular management of archives is achievable with ease.


API improvements

  • PATCH methods are now available for easily updating any attribute of work item instead of recreating whole resources completely.

  • Attachments can now be uploaded to work items through API.
