Bug Fixes and Improvements

Ticket Component Description
27715 Submit Test Case

Fixed performance issue when submitting Test Cases: Too many Test Modules in a specific qTest Project caused Sessions to not fully load and therefore, they would not all display in the Submit Test Case screen. In order to fix this issue, we applied lazy loading for Test Modules and we also had to compromise a functionality to search for Test Module by name.

NA Security Fixed security issue when submitting a defect from Sessions.

 Known Issues

  • Sessions cannot submit or update defects to Rally, due to a Rally UI changed in the new version at the time if this release. We will provide the fix in the next release when we identify a resolution.

Addition of Flood to the 9-Box

We are happy to announce that Flood has been added as a feature to your qTest suite 9-box. 
Flood is a cloud-based load testing tool that gives users the flexibility to test with millions of concurrent users in just minutes, using a shared cloud or your own private cloud resources.
The results from these tests are aggregated into a real-time dashboard so you can investigate and pinpoint the root cause of performance problems as they occur.
With an open REST API, it is easy to launch performance tests from any scheduling service like qTest Launch, Jenkins, or Bamboo so that performance testing can happen within your CI/CD pipeline. 
Note: Flood is currently only available in the 9-box for OnDemand versions. This new feature will be available for OnPremise customers in a future release.
The following test frameworks can be executed within Flood:
  • JMeter
  • Gatling 
  • Flood Element
  • Selenium 
  • Tosca
As an exclusive for QASymphony customers, you have been granted 20 node hours which allows you to run a 1-hour test with up to 20,000 users.
Read here for more information on how to get started with Flood, or reach out to your customer success manager/sales representative for a quick start session.
