Feb-23-Updates

Hey, testers! As part of our ongoing effort to help scale your digital experiences, we have released another round of exciting product updates. As we rang in March, we’re giving you a sneak peek at some of the product updates we released last month.

Over the course of last month- we are now live with HyperExecute Private Cloud on Microsoft Azure Marketplace, added macOS Ventura for Cypress testing, and rolled out new browsers and integration for real-time testing and automation testing.

Let’s dive in!

HyperExecute Private Cloud for Smart Test Orchestration

LambdaTest’s HyperExecute is a lightning-fast intelligent smart end-to-end test execution and orchestration platform. It is up to 70% faster than any cloud-based conventional testing grid. Running automation tests with HyperExecute reduces developer friction and helps businesses achieve faster time to market.

We are pleased to announce HyperExecute Private Cloud on Microsoft Azure Marketplace to help you run end-to-end tests on your private cloud.

Here are the prerequisites to leverage HyperExecute Private Cloud.

  • Resource Provider

    You need to register for the following resource providers to install HyperExecute.

    • Microsoft.Compute
    • Microsoft.OperationsManagement

    Visit this link to register a resource provider.

  • Register for EnablePodIdentityPreview

    To enable Kubernetes apps to access cloud resources securely with Azure Active Directory, we use the AAD Pod Identity feature. To use the AAD Pod Identity feature, register for the EnablePodIdentityPreview feature.

  • CPU Quotas

    To deploy HyperExecute, you need to up the VM-family vCPU quotas. Please check out this link to increase CPU quotas.

    • Quota name – Standard DSv3 Family vCPUs. vCPU core count – 80
    • Quota name – Standard FSv2 Family vCPUs. vCPU core count – 8 * number of parallel licenses.

Now below are the post-deployment actions you need to follow.

To access this private setup in your environment, you need to provision a specific public machine inside the Vnet. Due to the security restrictions implemented, this setup cannot directly access your private applications, URLs, or APIs.

To fix this issue, you need to perform Vnet peering from the Vnet generated inside the HyperExecute dedicated resource group to the Vnet that is already present in your account. As the test machines require access to those endpoints, this account must be the one that holds all of your endpoints or your test execution account.

Check our document to activate Vnet peering and Vnet linking in your account.

New Features in LambdaTest Automation

Check out the fresh batch of features added to Cypress testing, Smart UI testing, and Analytics.

In most popular browsers, properties like CSS element() function and Speech Recognition API are unsupported.

One-Click Bug Logging with FogBugz

The LambdaTest Integrations now has another bug-tracking tool in its kitty – FogBugz.

LambdaTest integration

FogBugz is a web-based project management platform with features like bug and issue tracking, discussion boards, wikis, customer relationship management, and more.

With LambdaTest integration for FogBugz, you can now avoid the pain point of maintaining issues and tasks manually by logging bugs in a single click while performing cross browser testing of your website from the LambdaTest platform to your FogBugz instance.

Additionally, we have also optimized our integration with Zapier for enhanced performance.

Wrapping up

And that’s all!
