[GUI Functional testing] Location and browsers configuration is now available on a Test Suite level

After grouping individual GUI Functional tests into a Test Suite you may want to change location and browsers on a Test Suite level, so that all of the tests inside a Test Suite are executed on the same location and browsers. Previously, you would change location and browsers for each of the tests in a Suite.

Setting a location and browsers for a Test Suite will not affect individual test configuration. In other words, you may have different location and browsers set on individual test level and on Test Suite level.

[GUI Functional testing] New browser versions now available 

We’ve added new browser versions including Chrome version 90, and Firefox version 88 - these versions are set as default.

[API Monitoring] Secrets Management at the Bucket Level

We have enhanced the API Monitoring Secrets Management feature to also support secrets at the bucket level. Each bucket can now have secrets that are not shared with other buckets. Secrets specified at a bucket level can only be used by Tests in that bucket. 


Secrets specified at the team level can continue to be used by Tests in all buckets. Check out the docs to learn more. Requires a qualifying plan.


[API Monitoring] Test Notifications now support Emails to Distribution Lists or Non-Member Emails

We have enhanced email notifications for API Monitoring Tests to also support sending notifications to email distribution lists or non-member emails. 

First the owner of a team must specify a whitelist of email domains (e.g., in the Team Settings and Usage page. This ensures that only emails that belong to admin-approved domains can be added to buckets to receive test notifications.

Bucket owners can navigate to the Bucket Settings page and add one or more distribution lists or non-member emails that can then be used by every API Test within that bucket.


The Email Notifications section of each API Test in the bucket will display all the distribution lists or non-member emails specified for that bucket. Test owners can select one or more of these emails or distribution lists to be notified.

Check out the docs to learn more. Requires a qualifying plan. Contact Sales to add Custom Email Notifications to your account.


[Mock Services] Search transaction by ID

Searching for a particular Mock Services transaction is a very common task. You need to find the right one in order to edit its response, and add it to your running Mock Service, or to double-check whether it is part of your Mock Service template or not.

Up until today, you could only search transactions by name or tag. However, a transaction name could be long and complex and the tags may not be unique. On the other hand, a transaction ID is unique and short. BlazeMeter now enables you to search transactions by transaction ID.



[Test Data Management] Share test data models within workspace

Test data models defined in Scriptless tests are now re-usable between Scriptless tests and no longer tied to one particular test. With the ability to save and open the test data model, you can now save the test data model in your workspace and load it into a different test within the same workspace.


[Test Data Management] Export/Import test data models

You can now export test data models into files, store them in an external system and let other teams import them into their workspaces.


[Test Data Management] Download generated data as CSV file

Every test data model can be now downloaded as a CSV file, even before the test is executed. You can review generated data in a CSV file, make adjustments where needed, or use this CSV file as test data input for your other tests.


[Test Data Management] Integration with Broadcom Test Data Manager Find & Reserve feature

In many cases, test data may be already seeded in a database within your test environment. You can now use the integration with Broadcom Test Data Manager (TDM). Find & Reserve models defined in your TDM can be linked to BlazeMeter Scriptless tests including the ability to provide specific search query criteria to narrow down your test data sets. Prior to the test execution, the BlazeMeter Scriptless test retrieves test data from the database via TDM according to the Find & Reserve model and criteria specification.



What's New for March 2021?

[GUI Functional testing] Rerun a test with the same data set 

You can manage test data and parametrize your GUI Functional Scriptless test with synthetic data, which is randomly generated each time you execute a test.

We’ve added the ability to rerun a GUI Functional test with the same data that was generated for an exact test execution.

For example, if you have a GUI Functional test that failed on a specific set of data, now you can rerun the same test with the same data set, in order to make sure your application is failing with specific data.

[GUI Functional testing] New browser versions now available 

We’ve added new browser versions including Chrome version 89, and Firefox version 86 - these versions are set as default.


What's New for February 2021?

Download logs from multiple engines at once

We have made it easier to take a closer look at the logs, especially when it comes to tests with multiple engines!  The new Logs tab in the report now allows you to focus on a certain group of engines and download all their logs at once:

On download request, a zipped file will be generated, containing all the selected logs. Once the file is ready to download, you will also get a link to the file - which you can share with others or download directly.


[Test Data Management] Generate Synthetic data for UI Functional Scriptless tests


We’ve added a new Test Data view for UI Functional Scriptless testing. Get a better overview about data from attached CSV files and define data parameters to be synthetically generated in place to support specific test scenario needs. There are 50+ functions available to get real looking, random, or dynamic data for your test, which you can perform calculations and conditional logic on top of this data. For more information, see our documentation.


[GUI Functional testing] Data iterations preview now available in Scriptless tests


Better visualize how every iteration will combine data from various CSV files or synthetically generated data according to different iteration options. Now you can get a built-in data preview with the New Test Iterations settings dialog available in UI Functional Scriptless testing.

[GUI Functional testing] New browser versions now available 

We’ve added new browser versions including Chrome version 88, and Firefox version 85 - these versions are set as default.

[GUI Functional testing] New usage report available: "GUI Functional Tests - Number of Browser sessions"

The report shows the number of test sessions grouped by browser/version for a selected period.


[Mock Services] Ability to Bulk Start, Stop, and Delete Mock Services 

Managing Mock Services is even easier with the ability to bulk start, stop and delete functionality. For more information, see our documentation.

[Mock Services] Run MAR Mock Services to a BlazeVSE directly from the Asset Catalog

From the Asset Catalog, you can view what Mock Services are running on a BlazeVSE and deploy new ones. For more information, see our documentation.

[Mock Services] BlazeVSE License Entitlement and Virtual Service Reports

You are now able to specify a VSE as performance mode, and track metrics such as the total concurrent performance VSEs and the total functional transactions metrics. Additionally, we have added the ability to review reports and inspect MAR Mock Services deployed to a BlazeMeter VSE. For more information, see our documentation.

We’ve also added direct access to BlazeMeter University via the homepage and booting screens, so you can easily continue your BlazeMeter learning with these free courses. 


What's New for December 2020?

[GUI Functional testing] New browser versions now available 

We’ve added a new browser version - Firefox 84.

[GUI Functional testing] Project page updated

Choose only the useful columns you want to see for your tests in a project. We've also added the last 10 test run results and columns configurator to the project page. The new “Last Results” column allows you to see a bigger picture for your project and quickly navigate to a test run.

[GUI Functional testing] Infinity scroll added for browser sessions dropdown

Browser sessions dropdown in a GUI test report used to have a limitation of max 100 sessions. Now, you’ll be able to see all the sessions of your tests with high concurrency.

[Performance/GUI Functional testing] Search for "Show all reports" & "Show all tests" Tabs

You can now search all items beyond those currently available on screen when you search at “Show all reports” and “Show all tests” tabs.

[Taurus/GUI Functional testing] Automatic page load waiter added

Starting with Taurus-cloud version 1.20.121, there is an automatic page load waiter executed after each Taurus action. This was added to make Selenium tests execution more reliable with less false negative results. As well as to align with Chrome Extension debugger behavior.
