New Features in Test Analytics and HyperExecute

TEST ANALYTICS

Real-Time Browser Concurrency Usage - Support for Sub-Organizations 

With the latest update, parent organization account users can now seamlessly monitor the real-time browser session usage of all their sub-organizations from a single, unified view. This feature grants the ability to observe which sub-organizations are utilizing more or fewer resources, thereby enabling a more strategic and informed approach to resource planning.

Key Benefits:

  • Centralized Monitoring: Administrators can now track browser concurrency from a central dashboard, providing a comprehensive overview of resource usage across all sub-organizations.
  • Resource Optimization: Real-time insights allow for immediate adjustments to resource allocation, ensuring optimal performance and cost-efficiency.
  • Enhanced Visibility: Detailed usage statistics empower parent organizations with the data required to make informed decisions about future resource provisioning and capacity planning.
  • Increased Control: This update offers a granular level of control, allowing for the identification of usage patterns and potential areas for improvement within sub-organizations.

SmartUI & Analytics: Latest Features and Enhancements

Our team is excited to announce the new features and enhancements to LambdaTest's SmartUI and Analytics Platform. Let's take a look at them.

SmartUI

Test on Edge Browser 🌐 

SmartUI now supports Edge browser in addition to other supported browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and more. Using Storybook, you can test your software application's UI components on the Edge browser to ensure they function and render perfectly.

Capture Full Page Screenshots with Auto-Height Detection 📷 

Earlier A/B testing of images with SmartUI requires you to take full-page screenshots to make more informed decisions. In addition, capturing full-page screenshots in Storybook also requires manual configuration of the page height.

With the Auto Height Detection feature, now you can capture full-page screenshots by automatically detecting and adjusting the page height and avoid the hassle of manually specifying the height parameter in the configuration file.

Integration of GitHub App with Playwright 🔁 

SmartUI now integrates the GitHub App with Playwright, allowing you to link your GitHub repositories directly to your LambdaTest's SmartUI accounts. 

With SmartUI, you and your teams can easily share test scripts, review changes, and provide feedback within their GitHub repositories. With any CI tool on GitHub, you can get information about the status of visual regression builds and pull and push requests.

Analytics

LambdaTest Test Analytics Templates 📰 

With the new Test Analytics Templates, you can now access pre-built templates that provide comprehensive insight into your test results, making it easier to analyze and interpret the information. 

These templates provide a structured framework for the presentation of test analytics, allowing you to customize and visualize their data in a visual and meaningful manner. You and your teams can save time and effort by leveraging these templates instead of creating test reports from scratch.
