Maximum parameter values for coverage matrix

The maximum number of parameter values your test plan can have and still use the coverage matrix visualization has been increased for users of Chrome and Firefox browsers. The new limits are:

Chrome: 100 parameter values Firefox: 85 parameter values IE: 75 parameter values



Spurious change warning messages appeared when bulk editing parameter values that contain commas

An interesting pairwise defect.



Import file field from copy plan dialog

This option doesn’t make sense when copying a plan.



Moved “Back to Plans” navigation in project permissions dialog to the top left to be more prominent and noticeable



Missing highlight on the “Create Tests” navigation when creating mixed-strength tests.



Initiating editing on an auto-script field causing it to scroll out of view

This annoying defect which only affected later steps (pairwise defect!) has been fixed.



Keyboard triggered auto-complete in HP-QC / ALM export

In the test name and test description fields of the HP QC / ALM export dialog, you can now insert parameter values using keyboard autocomplete (similar to how it works in auto-script step fields) by typing the { character.

Sort, secondary sort and tertiary sort test cases

You can now sort test cases by the values of a specific parameter by clicking on the table heading for that parameter. Click it again to sort descending. You can also use shift-click to apply a secondary sort parameter, and even shift-click again to apply a tertiary sort parameter.



Total possible number of parameter value interactions

After creating tests you can see the total possible number of parameter value interactions your test cases are covering. This takes into account your value pair constraints. Hover over the information icon in the purple header bar when viewing test cases.



Search in test cases

You can now search for parameter values in test cases.

Error when saving requirements after navigation prompt

Fixed a recent regression where choosing to save requirements after navigating away from the requirements page caused an error instead.

Thanks to our automated error reporting system for reporting this bug. 😄

Freeze required test cases user interface

Freezing Hexawise generated test cases as required test cases now has full UI support.

We’ve had the freeze feature to lock in generated test cases for some time, but you had to know the secret handshake to use it. Freezing generated tests as required test cases isn’t usually necessary. It’s helpful when you invest a lot of effort in a specific set of Hexawise generated tests (such as automating them in a hard coded way, or determining the expected results of the test cases in a laborious manner) and don’t want subsequent minor additions to the test plan to result in an entirely new set of test cases.

Unless you have this unusual circumstance though, you should not freeze test cases as it doesn’t allow Hexawise to generate the most efficient set of tests as your test plan evolves.



Color indication for frozen test cases and required test cases

Frozen test cases in the requirements and create tests user interfaces are now colored blue for easy identification.



Parameter change warning dialog

The dialog warning you of changes to value pairs and requirements caused by changes to parameters now has better wording and bolding for increased readability.



Freeze / thaw as versioned events

These did not trigger the saving of a revision before, now they do.



Requirements table UI coloring

Row hover coloring now matches test case table.

Import file explanation dialog scrolls on short screens

It was difficult to read all the information about file formats for importing on smaller height screens. This dialog now scrolls.



Clearing Auto-scripts

This wasn’t working. Now it is. Simple as that.

“Back to Plans” button shown in project management dialog in incorrect cases.



Details on import failures not shown

Detailed explanation of the cause of the failure when importing Excel test plans were not being shown. Now they are again.

Saving Auto-script expected results with no conditions

There was a remaining Auto-script saving issue that was a 2-way defect only triggered when the conditions of the expected result were blank (always expected).

A big thank you to Lakshmi for an excellent bug report on this issue.

Label plan revisions

You can now provide labels to specific meaningful revisions of your plan. Simply open the plan revisions dialog and click on the numeric revision label and replace it with a meaningful label such as “Beta 3”, “Reviewed”, “Approved by Doug”, “1.0.13.april”, or “Sell by June 3”.

Whatever makes that revision special, you can label it as such.
