Run Tests With Quiet Mode Functionality 🔇 

With еvеry job еxеcution in HypеrExеcutе, significant numbеr of logs arе gеnеratеd. Whilе thеsе logs arе valuablе for in-dеpth dеbugging and analysis, wе also undеrstand that thеy can somеtimеs ovеrwhеlm Continuous Intеgration (CI) systеms, particularly during еxtеnsivе tеst еxеcutions.

To address this concern and provide you with morе control over logging output, we have introduced thе all-nеw Quiеt Modе in HypеrExеcutе. This fеaturе allows you to strеamlinе your tеst runs by displaying only thе most rеlеvant updatеs during thе tеst еxеcution. By doing so, you can now run your tеsts with significantly fеwеr logs without compromising on thе quality of dеbugging and analysis.

📕 Refer to the documentation to learn more - Quiet Mode in HyperExecute.

Schedule Test Execution With HyperExecute Workflow 🕝 

With HyperExecute Workflow, you can now easily schеdulе tеst runs and makе your tеsting procеss smoothеr than еvеr. Whеthеr you nееd tеsts to run rеgularly or at spеcific intеrvals, HypеrExеcutе Workflow has you covеrеd. By automating tеst schеduling, you can usе rеsourcеs bеttеr, and еnsurе tеsts run at thе right timеs without manual еffort.

New Features in Web and App Automation

Web Automation

Google Lighthouse Report for Playwright Testing 💈 

You can now view the Lighthouse Performance Metrics while running Playwright tests on the LambdaTest cloud. By generating the Lighthouse report, you can view the following performance metrics: 

  • Performance 
  • Accessibility 
  • Best Practices 
  • SEO 
  • Progressive Web App

Currently, LambdaTest supports Lighthouse Audits on Chrome, Edge, and Chromium browsers. 

Refer to documentation:  View Lighthouse Performance Metrics for Playwright. 

Identify and Highlight CDP Errors in Command Logs  

Now you can identify failed command logs at a glance on the LambdaTest Automation Dashboard, allowing you to highlight error command logs instantly. For Playwright, Puppeteer, Taiko, and K6 tests, you can view both the passed and failed status of command logs. This feature makes troubleshooting and debugging easier, as you are able to pinpoint the specific command that caused the error.

Introducing Max Duration for Test Session Timeout 🔴 

For Cypress tests, you can specify a maximum time limit for the test to execute before it is automatically stopped, thus freeing up resources for other tests to execute. Please refer to the documentation Max Duration for Test Session Timeout.

APP AUTOMATION
 

Support for Regular Expression in Playwright Android Testing 🎭 

There may be instances in which the selected device is unavailable when conducting tests on LambdaTest. As a result, Regular Expression (REGEX) comes in handy by expanding the search criteria in order to find alternative devices for testing. 

We have now enabled the support for Regular Expression to fetch device names that are available for Playwright testing on Android devices.

For more details, check the documentation Capabilities for Playwright Android Testing.

Disable Screenshot Block for Android Testing 📱 

LambdaTеst now provides Disable Screenshot Block feature (in Beta) for real Android devices, providing a valuablе solution for mobile app tеsting when dealing with applications that imposе rеstrictions on taking scrееnshots. 

With this feature, you can disablе thе scrееnshot block for Android dеvicеs and perform tеsting without еncountеring any disruptions likе black scrееns or missеd scrееnshots duе to thе app's inhеrеnt propеrtiеs.  

Disable Screenshot Block is supported in Real Time App Testing and App Automation. 

Refer to the documentation Disable Screenshot Block for Android.

Run your Selenium tests using SmartWait Functionality

Hey folks 👋 

LambdaTest Automation now supports the SmartWait feature to increase the efficiency and accuracy of your automated test execution. 🕛 

With SmartWait, you can reduce the amount of code dedicated to explicit/implicit waits in your Selenium test suite, making it easier to read and maintain.

SmartWait runs a series of actionability checks on a webpage element before any action is executed on it. It uses an intelligent algorithm that holds off on performing an action until all relevant checks have been successfully passed. SmartWait returns the relevant Selenium error message if the checks are not passed within a stipulated timeframe.

📕 To get started with SmartWait on LambdaTest, check out our documentation SmartWait functionality for Selenium testing.

Organize your tests using Build Inactivity Time

Hey folks 😀 

LambdaTest's Automation now supports Build Inactivity Time, also known as Build Splitting logic, which allows you to track your progress by identifying tests run at specific intervals. 

The Build Splitting logic lets you specify a time interval, after which the system will mark the build as complete after waiting for the specified period of time. As a result, if you run new builds after this time period, they will be created as new builds.

 📕  For more details, visit the documentation - Setting Up the Build Inactivity Time

Here are some additional enhancements to LambdaTest Automation 👇 

  • The Live Interaction feature is now supported on macOS - Monterey and Ventura.
  • Newly added Lambda Hooks to interpret test results: skipped, ignored, unknown, and, error.
