New Features: Smart UI and Account Management

Smart UI

  • Perform Smart UI testing with Storybook 7 and get enhanced component visualization, testing, and collaboration capabilities.
  • Smart baseline strategy for SmartUI to streamline the process of updating baselines for approved screenshots, reducing manual intervention, and improving the overall efficiency of the testing workflow.
  • Now take multiple screenshots in a build and give them the same name. This is useful for comparing different stages or elements, as you're not limited to just one screenshot with the same name in a build. This overwrite screenshot feature in Smart UI will replace (overwrite) the latest screenshot with the previous ones in that build.

ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT

  • New security features in the LambdaTest Tunnel to configure security options for the tunnel to restrict tunnel creation to specific users, turn tunnel sharing on or off, and control which local domains are accessible (or inaccessible) through the tunnel. 
  • Audit logs in LambdaTest Tunnel for user and organization-level activities to monitor account activity, detect unauthorized access, investigate security incidents, track user-level and organization-level activity history, and audit compliance with security policies.
  • Password and access key expiry policy to let organization administrators set the duration of password and access key expiry. After that, users can create a new password and/or use the regenerated access key. Admins will also be able to exempt certain users from the application of this policy. 
  • LambdaTest integration with Zenkit for tracking and managing bugs and issues. With this integration, you can effortlessly log bugs directly from the LambdaTest platform to your Zenkit instance, eliminating the need to maintain tasks and issues manually.

Introducing New App Automation Features – Available Now

LambdaTest App Automation has just shipped new features that make it easier than ever to build, test, and deploy quality mobile apps. 🚀 

Take a look 👇 

📌 New Lambda Hook to help you differentiate between multiple test cases within a single Appium session. This feature aims to improve debugging capabilities, making it easier to identify which test cases may be causing errors or taking longer to execute.

📌 See highlighted elements in both live and saved videos when using the findElement method for Appium testing. This can help you to easily identify which elements your script is interacting with during test execution and to review saved videos to understand how your tests performed and interacted with the elements.

To use this feature, your organization must have instrumentation enabled. You also need to add the instrumented: true capability to your test script.

📌 Live video support for web automation on real devices that provides real-time video feedback as your web automation scripts execute on real Android and iOS devices. This can help you to identify issues more easily, improve the quality of your testing, and validate the user experience directly.
