Hexawise Recent Updates

February 14, 2018


Use ESC key to cancel value pair selection after making the initial selection in the pair

Consistency of behavior when closing confirmation dialog with different methods

There was different behavior when the value pair conflict confirmation dialog was closed with the “cancel” link vs. the X. These are meant to be the same.



Achievement counts are now displayed

The achievements needed to level up that are based on the number of activities performed (e.g. “Create your 10th value pair”) now indicate your current count.



Long plan names in panel headers and dialogs

They are now consistently truncated.



Added parameter name tooltip to constraints interface


February 8, 2018


Clarity of project link in plan dialog

In the plan dialog a click directly on the project acts to select the project, not the entire plan row. This is now made more clear with link underlining on hover over the project name that’s distinct from the entire row hover highlighting.


February 6, 2018


Parameter names in constraints were styled as links

These are not links in this part of the UI.


February 2, 2018


Cancel in the blank parameters and values warning dialog

Now cancel and the close X both work the same.



Expected results dropdown logic in auto-scripts when exhausting possibilities with “is-not”

The parameter should be removed from the list of possible options when its possibilities are exhausted, but it wasn’t in the case of “is not”. A classic pairwise defect.


February 1, 2018


Share dialog when users have one or more projects with a very long name

Very long data is often an important testing consideration when dealing with user provided content.


January 22, 2018


Information panels

The formatting and styling of the dismissable help panels throughout the application have been improved and normalized across the app.


January 19, 2018


Issues editing plans from the mind map

Most users use the mind map to visualize their test plan inputs. It’s also fully editable however, and there were a few regressions that had been introduced that effected editing your test plan from the mind map view in some cases.


January 15, 2018


Changes in an open plan from the plan dialog ripple through the app without a reload

If you used the test plan dialog to change certain aspects of a test plan, such as its name or project, and that plan also happens to be the plan that you are currently editing (2-way defects), then those aspects would be stale and would continue showing the old data until you refreshed or changed plans.


January 13, 2018


System software upgrades

We made some upgrades to some important system software that should result in noticeable performance increases for many Hexawise operations.


January 12, 2018


Plan sharing

In Hexawise, plans are shared in a project. We now made it easier to share a plan into a new project. When you click the share action, there’s now an option to select existing projects, or to create a new project right there.



Value expansions could be lost when removing unrelated parameters in single parameter edit



Add value expansions to a parameter when there is so far only one parameter in the plan

This was a strange pairwise defect.


January 10, 2018


Attribute invites to the proper user in all cases

Want to guess if this bug was a pair-wise defect? If you guessed ‘yes’, you’re a winner!

If a user was invited to a project by someone that did not originally create the project, the invitation said that the project creator is inviting them to the project. Now it correctly identifies the inviter to the invitee in the invitation.


January 8, 2018


Regression exporting without tests

Fixed a regression that occurs only when exporting with no test cases. A classic pairwise defect.


January 5, 2018


Shared project email

The email you get when a project has been shared with you now includes a list of the test plans in the project and links to the test plans.



Plan revisions dialog

Searching in the plan revisions dialog, then coming back into it kept the old search criteria, which then also caused layout issues in the dialog. This is a classic combinatorial defect caused by a sequence of specific actions.



Requirements traceability in Excel and CSV exports

The requirements traceability of requirements to the test cases where they appear was only exported as a sheet in the HP QC/ALM export. It is now also exported as a sheet in the Excel export and a CSV file in the CSV exports.


January 4, 2018


Create / edit parameter dialog dismissal

Dismissing with the X now behaves the same as dismissing with the “cancel” link.



Manage plan dialog with long plan names

You can now hover over truncated long plan names to get the full name.



Trailing commas in bulk edit

Including one or more trailing commas at the end of a set of comma-delimited parameter values in bulk edit would cause the parameter and values on the next line to be interpreted incorrectly.
