Adding a new parameter in the mind map UI with no parameter values error'd

In other parts of the Hexawise, adding a parameter with no parameter values results in a parameter with one value called none. The same now happens for entering parameters in the mind map UI.

Adding a new parameter in the mind map UI resulted in only grey mind map lines for the new parameter

Gherkin Feature file, Gherkin data table, and Guage data table exports are streamlined

When exporting a Gherkin Feature file from Hexawise Automate, or when saving generated test cases as a Gherkin or Gague data table, for parameter values with value expansions, we no longer include both the parameter value and the expanded value for the value of a parameter with a delimiter in a specific test case, we only include the expanded value.

Thanks to Tim for the suggested improvement.

The # of generated test cases is now displayed in the "Your Plans" plan management dialog
The column 'Expansion #' was changed to 'Duplicated PV Index' in Value Expansions tab of the Hexawise Excel export

The new name is more clear about the purpose of this field, which is used internally by Hexawise to flag that a parameter value has been included more than once (for weighting purposes).

Number of generated test cases are shown in the revision dialog for many revisions

Not every plan revision has test cases generated for it, but for those revisions that do, Hexawise will now display how many test cases existed for that revision in the test plan revisions dialog.

One-click removal of sample parameters

If you take Hexawise up on its offer to show you some example parameters in a new, empty test plan, you can now also clear those examples with a single click.

Define inputs UI

The text on the define inputs and bulk edit UI has been improved, and the interactions provide more feedback.

Define Inputs UI independance

The URL scheme for Define Inputs is now independent, so won't continually return to the single parameter define inputs toggle. If you are using bulk edit or mind map views, those will persist as you move around the application. These views are now also URL addressable.

Certain plan modifications don't work when NPV warning banner is shown

This was a fairly nasty pairwise defect that prevented some types of plan modification from succeeding (e.g. parameter deletion) in the rare case that a user overrode a suggestion from Hexawise to prevent "no possible values" when modifying their plans constraints, and thereby entered into the state with the "no possible value" warning banner displayed in the UI.

This is now resolved.

Hexawise Automate test script export to programming language / test framework pairs

You can now export BDD test scripts from Hexawise Automate to anyone of 24 programming language / test framework pairs by selected "Automated Test Framework" in the export dialog. This is a more direct path to automated test scripts than just exporting the Gherkin Feature file from Hexawise Automate. These exports contain the "stubs" needed to implement the Gherkin statements in the programming language and test framework you select.

Please contact us if the programming language or testing framework you're using to execute your BDD test scripts is not already in the export list.

New "Save as" feature in test cases hidden for some plans displayed on narrow screens

This was a pairwise defect only impacting "wide plans" (lots of parameters) on narrow width screens

Create an auto-script achievement is now satisfied by a manual auto-script or a Hexawise Automate BDD script
Hexawise Sample plans now include Hexawise Automate BDD test scripts

Hexawise Automate header panel on very narrow screens

Important functionality such as save and export would not be available on very narrow screens rather than being scrollable.
