June ‘21 Updates

Howdy testers! June has ended, and it’s time to give you a refresher on everything that happened at LambdaTest over the last month. We are thrilled to share that we are live with Cypress testing and that our very own LT Browser is free for all LambdaTest users. That’s not all, folks! We have also added a whole new range of browsers, devices & features to make testing more effortless than ever.

Let’s check out all that’s new at LambdaTest.

Accelerate Web Automation Testing with Cypress on LambdaTest

Cypress on LambdaTest

With LambdaTest, you can now run cross-browser tests using the Cypress framework. Further, you will be able to perform Cypress testing in parallel across multiple browser environments, which reduces your testing time. A speedy alternative to the Selenium Automation tool, Cypress was released in late 2017 as a fun and easy way to create E2E (end-to-end) automated tests. In contrast to traditional WebDriver based web automation, it relies on browser APIs directly and not on the WebDriver.

Currently, LambdaTest supports the below-listed browsers, browser versions, and Operating Systems for Cypress testing.

OPERATING SYSTEM
CHROME
FIREFOX
EDGE
macOS Catalina*
66 and above (Except 82)

Live with YouTrack Integration

YouTrack Integration

LambdaTest can now be integrated with YouTrack, a fantastic bug tracking and project management tool developed by JetBrains. You can create agile boards, create reports, generate Gantt charts, create dashboards, and track time with it. YouTrack lets you find issues quickly based on autocomplete queries, manipulate them in batches, customize all problem attributes, and create customized workflows.

LambdaTest’s integration with YouTrack allows you to push bugs straight from LambdaTest to YourTrack projects. So besides taking screenshots, you can annotate bugs and share them with your colleagues.

Check out our YouTrack integration documentation for more information.

An Enhanced Automation Dashboard

In addition to the new browsers and browser version, we have also made a few enhancements to Automation testing & the dashboard.

  • Now you will be able to find and fix bugs quickly with the new and updated Automation test complete dashboard, as shown below.
  • With the addition of maskCommands capability, you will now be able to hide or mask sensitive data/information sent to or retrieved from the remote browsers at LambdaTest. All keystrokes and other required values will be hidden by using the command. The sensitive information will be replaced with ‘*’ in session logs (both raw and text).

Check out our Selenium capabilities documentation for more information.

New Geolocation for Real Time Testing & Enhancements to Screenshot API Testing

Geolocation testing is a fantastic feature that lets you test your website or web app across many locations, regardless of your current whereabouts. In case you are using the Selenium framework, do check out our detailed blog that demonstrates geolocation testing with Selenium.

To make your testing experience more enhanced than ever, we have added a few new additions to Real Time Testing & Screenshot Testing.

  • Real Time Testing – You will now be able to perform Geolocation testing of your websites & web apps for a newly added geolocation (i.e. Georgia).
  • Screenshot Testing– You can now set a test name (test_name) while performing screenshot testing using API.

That’s all for today!
