    • Web Explorer now allows users to specify a list of web-domains to be recorded automatically

      To save users the trouble of having to manually define the domains in each of their Web Explorer instances, a dedicated section called Web Explorer Whitelist is introduced in Explorer Settings page of qTest

      In qTest, users can now enter a list of domains to automatically record with Web Explorer by entering the URLs in the Web Explorer Whitelist field


      When users login to Web Explorer, the whitelisted domains from qTest will be retrieved and loaded into the Web Explorer settings


      When users access any web domain listed in the Web Explorer whitelist, a recording confirmation message will be displayed
