Enrichment of the test automation library

Our philosophy has always been to simplify test automation providing actionable abstraction layers on top of more complex actions.

That’s why we prefer to release common actions in the library used by the community instead of letting everyone script their own complex actions and controls.

This release comes with a new control ‘verifyElementTextContains’ and a new property ‘getRawFromJson’ based on recurring use-cases.

Additionally, a new system variable ‘%system.LASTSERVICE_RESPONSE%’ allows the user to control and manipulate the last service call response in a simple way.

The support for Erratum—our self-healing capability—is now better supported on all controls, simplifying its configuration the first time.

Improvements of the test case page

The test case page is central to the management of modular and scalable test automation suites.

A first series of improvements are available for image recognition that uses the parameter ‘picture=’:

  • Previewed image is larger with real-size
  • Previewed image can be clicked
  • Multiple pictures can be displayed at once.

A second part is dedicated to the configuration of fatal actions, letting you fail the test case if an action is failing, avoiding you to wait the rest of the test to end.

The configuration of fatal conditions on step, action, or control is now done through icons; the additional options menu have been adapted in the same way.

Lastly, the execution configuration only shows countries available for the selected systems and displays afterwards total execution duration at the top of the page.

Flexible users and secrets management

The integration of a solution in the enterprise environment is essential to ease its management and simplify its accesses.

User management is done with Keycloak in Cerberus testing, allowing a local configuration or integrations with external identities providers.

It is now possible to create local users that can have their own APIs key, a useful feature to support service account integration in Cloud environments.

On the secrets management part, all subdata flagged as encrypted are now hidden from execution results. All properties that contain ‘PASSW’ will also automatically have its content hidden from execution reports.

Additionally, you can now configure if unsecured certificates are accepted at robot level.

Advanced Sikuli action and capabilities

Sikuli is the open-source library used for desktop testing and images recognition for any type of test.

We have added the capability to take both desktop and web screenshot when using the Sikuli extension; before only the web screenshot was supported.

The traceability in the execution is also improved by saving all pictures, accelerating the analysis knowing which picture Cerberus used.

One last improvement is for the Sikuli engine to allow key modifiers to perform combined actions such as CTRL+F5 in your test.

Accelerate with Open-Source Test Automation

This release is about continuous improvement of core features of Cerberus Testing, from test definition, execution, to the test reporting.

Our goal has always been to enable fast feedback loops of the test automation lifecycle to accelerate the delivery of valuable software in organizations.

We continue to improve the product in that way, preparing a series of structuring improvements for the upcoming releases.

Stay tuned, and start now.
