What's New in AI Codeless Testing 2021
This topic describes the new features and enhancements available in AI Codeless Testing 2021.
AI Mockup Identification
You can now prepare your AI-based tests even before your application is developed. Use AI Inspection to learn AI objects directly from your application mockup images.
For details, see Create a test based on mockups.
Configurable object identification enhancements
AI Codeless Testing 2021 includes new features that enable more accurate and flexible object identification.
You can also fine-tune these features to optimally identify objects in your application. You can configure options at different levels: globally, per test, or per step.
When running a test, if the object is not displayed in the visible part of the device screen or web page, AI Codeless Testing automatically scrolls further in search of the object.
You can configure the direction of the scroll and the maximum number of scrolls to perform. You can also disable automatic scrolling if necessary. For details, see Automatic scrolling.
|Text recognition in multiple languages||
AI Codeless Testing can now recognize text in 43 different languages in the application being tested.
By default, AI Codeless Testing recognizes for English text. You can configure a different language set according to your needs. See Customize settings.
To improve performance, AI Codeless Testing uses a caching mechanism for object identification during the test run.
You can disable this mechanism from the settings. For details, see Caching enabling for object identification.
AI Codeless Testing 2021 provides the following enhancements when editing your tests:
Use a new combined and consistent interface to inspect both live applications and application mockup images.
When working with live applications, this also enables you to do the following:
|Adding steps to your test||
Fine-tune object identification details for your step when adding it from the AI Inspection window and the AI Recorder.
When editing tests, you can now do the following:
|Feedback tool||AI Codeless Testing now provides a refreshed user interface for a smoother user experience.|
Additional control types supported
New control types and type names are now supported. For a full list of supported controls types, see the AI testing section of the UFT Help Center.
|Newly supported types||
The following control types are now supported:
|General names include multiple control types||
You can use the following types to describe controls more generically:
table and calendar controls can be seen as containers, or parent objects. Using an object hierarchy can improve your test's readability and resilience.
|Changes that may require adjustments to existing tests||
The up alias now represents both up arrows and up triangles. Previously, it was used only for up triangles.
The arrow and triangle aliases have been discontinued.
