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.

Error opening export file in Excel when the Excel export contains blank requirement names

Value expansions in mind map (OPML) exports

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

A combinatorial defect with value expansions, OPML export and duplicate parameter values

These here recent updates...

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

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.

Hexawise Automate: Don't highlight an angle bracket in the Background section of a Gherkin feature file

The background section is not data-driven so shouldn't make it appear like angle brackets will pull in data values.

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.

Pairwise defect with Parameter insertion

Adding a parameter above an existing parameter worked fine, unless the parameter being added had 8 or more parameter values, triggering the warning dialog. In that case, the parameter would be added at the bottom of the parameter list if the warning was bypassed.

Rare error during plan export

Fixed a race condition on plan export that would very rarely cause the plan export to fail with an error.

More informative test case count in Your Plans and Revisions dialogs

These two dialogs now display the strength at which the test cases were generated.

The oddest of pairwise defects...

In the unlikely case that your user ID (a sequential database ID) and the test plan ID (a sequential database ID) happened to match, use of the plan became broken.

Pairwise defect exporting test plan when there are generated test cases and requirements with no names

This is what we mean when we say all defects are pairwise defects.

🚀 Performance when saving test cases as data formats (JSON, CSV, XML, etc.)

There were some inefficient queries during this process that were heavily optimized.

Test plan sorting by test case count when some plans have no generated test cases

Having no test cases at all messed up the sort in the test plan management dialog. It no longer does.

Saving test cases as JSON when they contain an "no possible value" causes a 404 response

A classic pairwise issue; it's now resolved.

Clicking disabled options in plan export dialog causes errors

The options were visibly disabled, but were still able to be clicked. We kept them clickable, but added a helpful message now as to why they are disabled.

Faster constraint creation

When the creation of a constraint is denied, since it will cause a "no possible value" to appear, it now returns you to the constraint creation dialog so you can modify the constraint type, rather than returning you all the way back to the inputs screen.

Clicking disabled import button in requirements import dialog causes errors

The import button was visibly disabled, but was still able to be clicked. Now it is not.

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

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.
