SmartUI SDK: Handle Dynamic Data and New Frameworks Support

Handling Dynamic Data in SmartUI SDK 

When conducting visual tests, you may encounter scenarios where certain elements within your software application change between test runs. These changes might introduce inconsistencies in your test results. 

You can now ignore/select specific element(s) to be removed from the comparison by parsing the options in the smartuiSnapshot function.

Check the documentation: Handling Dynamic Data in SmartUI SDK.

Support for New Frameworks in SmartUI SDK 

Apart from Selenium, SmartUI SDK now has support for Playwright, Puppeteer, and TestCafe. 

Refer to the following documentation to get started:

[New] Handle Dynamic Data in Selenium Using Ignore/Select by XPath

The Ignore/Select functionality for DOM elements in Selenium has been improved with extended support for XPath. With this, you can now ignore or select DOM elements not only in viewport screenshots but also in full-page screenshots.

Additionally, this release enhances the handling of Ignore/Select and full-page arguments in the Smart UI hook, offering a more refined and efficient approach.

📕 To get started, refer to the documentation - Handling Dynamic Data in Selenium Using Ignore/Select by XPath.

Run Visual Regression Tests With Smart UI SDK

Now perform visual regression testing with Smart UI SDK.

Our new Smart UI SDK captures the DOM of your website/URL and renders it across multiple browsers and resolutions in a single call, enabling seamless testing of websites in multiple environments and ensuring UI consistency across builds. 

You can also integrate it easily with your functional tests or use it for batch-testing multiple static URLs. 

Smart UI SDK is currently supported for Selenium with Java, Node.js, and Python. 

Support with more frameworks is on the way!

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.
