TestEngine Version History

Applies to TestEngine 1.30, last modified on May 07, 2024
Important Notice for TestEngine Customers:

TestEngine has moved to SmartBear License Management. From September 2023, all licenses issued for your subscription term will be ID-based licenses by default. If you are not currently on ID-based licensing, it's time to migrate immediately. File-based licensing will no longer be supported as of October 2023. This means that technical support requests related to file-based licensing will not be accommodated. If you encounter technical issues that you're unable to resolve, it could lead to service interruption. For customers still in the process of migration, we recommend reaching out to your Account Manager to discuss your migration plan. Alternatively, you can log a support request with our Customer Care Team for assistance.

1.30.0 (October 23, 2023)

  • We resolved an issue where an incorrect license was presented in TestEngine when the SLM SaaS license was installed in ReadyAPI. Additionally, addressed the inability to uninstall this license. The license was showing as a "File-based license."

  • The command-line interface (CLI) and console now feature updated error messages in case the test project fails to refresh the access token.

  • TestEngine now provides compatibility for running gRPC tests that were created and updated in ReadyAPI.

  • We added a checkbox to simplify the license installation process when working within private networks.

  • TestEngine no longer removes users; instead, it deactivates them. We have redesigned the user interface to indicate that users are deactivated.

  • In the test job result report, there is an additional "Success Ratio" column with the format <passed-count>/<total-count> next to the status.

  • We added a new column in both the overview and history tables, showing "Run Time," specifically dedicated to displaying the "Test Run Time." This addition aims to provide users with a clear distinction between the run time while a test suite is being executed and the total time required to complete the test suite.

  • We provided installers for Mac X64 and ARM.

  • TestEngine CLI 1.9.0 is released.

TestEngine 1.30.0 includes newer versions of previously used libraries.

1.29.1 (July 26, 2023)

Important Updates for customers

  • When installing and starting TestEngine, there's a conflict with the Guice framework that prevents TestEngine from starting if a user has ReadyAPI installed and running on the same machine while being logged in. To resolve this, log out from ReadyAPI, start TestEngine, and then log back into ReadyAPI to install your license.

  • 1.29.1 introduced an unintended issue that will be fixed in a future release. When installing an ID-Based License through the on-premise workflow with an SLM license server configured for Access for Everyone, there is a validation setting in the Access Key field. It requires a character entry to activate the Install button.

  • From October 2023, we won't provide file-based licensing. Instead, we will replace it with SmartBear ID-based licensing - With TestEngine 1.29.0, we extend support for SmartBear ID-based licenses hosted on SmartBear licensing servers. You can now specify your Access Key in the license installation process and request a license, once is it made available and assigned on manage.smartbear.com. As we approach the October milestone, we're actively encouraging customers to transition over. Now is the time to start planning that transition. You should immediately engage with your SmartBear Account Manager to understand the steps involved in transitioning and getting started. Please read here to learn more.

  • We released TestEngine CLI in Version 1.8.0.

  • In 1.29.1, we fixed the problem with test steps in ReadyAPI projects that required a Pro license. Now they work as expected in TestEngine for SLM licenses.

1.28.0 (April 26, 2023)

  • From October 2023, we won't provide file-based licensing. Instead, we will replace it with SmartBear ID-based licensing - SmartBear ID-based licensing (also known as SmartBear License Management or SLM), is a new license management option that we started using in ReadyAPI 3.8.1. Support for SmartBear ID-based licenses is now being added to TestEngine 1.28. It is more reliable and convenient than the license type used in the previous product versions. As we approach the October milestone, we're actively encouraging customers to transition over. Now is the time to start planning that transition. You should immediately engage with your SmartBear Account Manager to understand the steps involved in transitioning and getting started. Please read here to learn more.

    Note:

    Support for SmartBear ID-based licenses is starting with offline (Customer on-premise) deployment in Q2 2023 (where the customer hosts the license server on-premise). We will add support for online (SmartBear hosts the license servers) later in 2023.
