We've taken Lab Management one step further by introducing workspaces. Workspaces are individual work areas within your lab. Create workspaces to segregate or share applications and devices between specific groups of users, and use the Public workspace for sharing assets among your users. You can create custom workspaces according to the needs of your organization, such as by region, or by company division or team.
For more details, see Lab and workspace management.
Sign and distribute iOS Agent apps
Signing and distributing the iOS Agent apps just got easier. We've recognized that having to re-sign and deploy the Agent apps with each new installation or upgrade of the server and connector is a major pain point. Now, Mobile Center takes care of this for you. At the click of a button, Mobile Center will sign your iOS Agent apps for you, and distribute them to your remote connectors automatically. For more details, see Re-sign the Agent apps .
Capture device audio output
As part of your testing flow, you may need to verify that a device is able to play audio in browsers, on players, and in other apps. You can now capture the audio output of a device connected to a Windows connector during exploratory testing, and download it as a .wav file. For details, see Capturing audio.
Support for Appium 1.7.1
We’re rolling out a newer version of Appium embedded in Mobile Center.
For pure Appium users, unlike Appium 1.7.1, Mobile Center by default now also supports a wide range of Chrome versions (Chrome 43 to 66), with no additional configuration required.
New look and feel
Mobile Center has a new look, in line with the fresh and vibrant Micro Focus brand. We’ve made navigation of our Lab console friendlier by adding another level, making it simpler for you to access the items and information that you need.
- Remove connector. Disconnected connectors, and any devices connected to them, cannot be used and therefore clutter both the Connectors and the Devices view. You can now remove a connector that is no longer connected to the server. The disconnected devices associated with that connector will also be removed from the Devices view. For details, see View and manage connectors (Admin only).
- Hybrid connector. Prior to this release, you were required to install a different connector when connecting to StormRunner Functional (SRF). Now when you install the Mobile Center connector, you can choose between connecting to an on-premises Mobile Center server, or to the SRF Mobile Lab. You can also switch between the two by modifying the connector.
Support for the latest iOS version, including Apple public beta versions.
- Certification of additional devices. See supported devices for a complete list of supported and certified devices.
