qTest Launch 1.3+ OnDemand Release Notes

Launch 1.3.2  September 26, 2018

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.

Accessing Flood

Accessing Flood from your qTest suite is easy. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Select the 9-box, and choose the Flood icon from the 9-box menu.
  2. You are redirected to the Flood suite. Take note:
    • New Flood users will have a fresh account
    • Existing Flood users' accounts will be linked, and they will be taken to their already existing Flood accounts.
    • Projects will automatically be created within Flood to mirror what users already have in qTest.
      • Note: There is an option to disconnect your qTest projects from your Flood account. To do so, select the Integration option in your user drop-down menu.
        • The "Integrations" page displays. Here, you can see your qTest projects associated with your Flood account. To disconnect, select the Disconnect icon.

Postman Json Parser

This enhancement enables the parser to parse the JSON result generated by Newman to better support the nested structure test result.  Ticket reference: 18881.

  • Postman JUnit. This parser parses JUnit XML result generated by the Newman Command Line tool.

  • Unified Functional Testing (UFT): This parser parses execution results generated by Unified Functional Testing (UFT) tool and collects test cases to submit to qTest Manager
