Hexawise Automate: <Test Case> Gherkin expression for Scenario and Scenario Outline sections

Hexawise Automate has had the <Test Number> expression that can be used in Scenario and Scenario Outline sections to include a sequential number for each included test case, either in the Examples table in the Scenario Outline or in the sequence of generated Scenario, one for each test case.

In addition, there is now a <Test Case> expression that provides the (potentially non-sequential) number of the generated test case for the row of the Examples table or the generated Scenario.

If your Scenario or Scenario Outline doesn't have any {[Parameter] Parameter value} selector(s) then there will be no difference in the values provided by <Test Number> and <Test Case>, but if it does, then the <Test Number> will increment from 1 sequentially, while the <Test Case> will reflect the number of hde generated test case for the Examples table row or generated Scenario.

Issue with forced return to large test case generation request

After requesting a long-running test case generation (5-way or 6-way) and then instead selecting a lesser strength, refreshing or navigating would return to the larger strength request.

Thanks to Zachary for reporting the issue.

Error exporting test plan after updating value expansions

Updating value expansions results in a partial cache invalidation. Immediately exporting afterward results in attempt to export off an incomplete cache. This was resolved.

Error reporting an invalid export

Some attempts to export a test plan that were not going to work failed to report a friendly user message, but instead resulted in an application error.

Scrolling when there are numerous constraints

There are three areas of the screen, the test plan inputs, the list of constraints, and the list of implied constraints. There was some scroll interaction between the three that made it more difficult and tedious to work with heavily constrained plans. These three areas now have better scroll behavior.

Hexawise Automate: Pairwise defect in selecting scenario examples

Hexawise Automate scenario examples that are constrained by parameter value would be missing test cases where the same parameter value is value expanded or range expanded in the generated test case.

Switching test plan strength in Hexawise Automate

The test plan strength switcher in Hexawise Automate was subject to some caching issues and other defect cases. These have been resolved.

"Please compute first" link in the Coverage Matrix

This link now takes you to the right place.

Hexawise Automate: The language and framework pair listing in Automated Test Framework export

The list of language and framework pairs was inconsistent and jumbled. Sometimes with the language first, sometimes with the framework first, and sometimes with only the framework and the language implied. This has now been made completely consistent for easier scanning of the list.

"Hide this" link in the mixed-strength warning panel

When attempting to apply new mixed-strength settings that are invalid, an explanation warning panel appears. The "hide this" link on the panel did not work properly.

UI/UX on login, register and reset password

The styling and validation behavior on these has been cleaned up and improved to provide more consistent behavior and feedback.

Commas are now used in number formatting in the coverage matrix chart
Cancel bulik edit changes after a warning

When you make a change in Bulk Edit, and click "Save", then get a warning message, upon clicking "Cancel" subsequently the "cancel unsaved changes" link couldn't be clicked.

Hexawise Automate: Auto-complete of parameter value names

After typing { in a Hexawise Automate Scenario or Scenario Outline, the subsequent auto-completion of parameter value names is much more capable and less persnickety when finding matches.

Hexawise Automate: Differentiate used and unused parameters

The drop down list of parameter names that appears in Hexawise Automate when you type < in a Scenario or Scenario Outline now differentiates parameters that you've already referenced in Hexawise Automate from those that you have not yet refereneced.

Hexawise Automate: Test case number in exported Gherkin Scenarios in a Gherkin feature file export

The number of the generated test case is now included in a comment above the generated Scenario for the test case when exporting Gherkin feature files.

A combinatorial defect with value expansions, OPML export and duplicate parameter values
Value expansions in mind map (OPML) exports

They are no longer prefixed with the parameter name, which made little sense in this particular format.

They got a splash of new paint. Fancy, huh?

Hexawise Automate: Issues changing a scenario outline into a scenario

When changing an existing scenario outline with a generated example data table into a scenario, the generated data table would not be removed and a Gherkin syntax error warning would be shown.

Hexawise Automate: Pairwise defect with scenario outline data table generation

There was a pairwise defect when navigating from the coverage graph to a Hexawise Automate script containing a scenario outline with a data table after editing test plan inputs. In this sequence of events the generated examples data table would be empty.
