The following new features have been implemented in this release of OpKey Web:
Business Process Designer
Now there is a Business Process Designer that contains Business Components as well as Business Process. There are two new views of the Business process, Swim Lanes and Process Builder. Users can create different lanes in the Swim Lanes view as per the flow scenarios & scripts. Users can create different flows for the supported application like SAP, Oracle EBS, Oracle Cloud, Salesforce, MS Dynamics, Kronos, Trackwise, etc. Users can drag and drop the desired application icon or click on the Plus (+) button, select the application from the dropdown, add a blank task & create the flow. There are few default task icons like “Login, Logout, User Supervisor, User Mobile, Desktop, Mainframe, Supply Chain, and CRM”. The default 10 icons will be reflected when the user hides the left panel. Users will be able to use any of these icons to add a new task to the flow. Steps can also be added to the added blank task and select “Link Task” from the dropdown option. A Business Component and Service Repository can be added as a test step from the Node Associator. The user can right-click on the context menu and add/link a test step as well.
Test Management Capabilities inside OpKey
We are trying to create a management tool in similar terms with Jira, TFS, etc. The Impact portal has been merged with OpKey Surge and the UI has been slightly modified.
If the release gets planned, the complete requirement is created in the section. All the details will have to be filled in and priority will have to be defined. When the priority gets defined, the development team gets notified about the different sprints and they pick the one with the highest priority. Post that the user will create the “Test Cycles”.
This is an entity similar to the “Test Suite”, where a user can add multiple Test Cases and execute. The flows which have been created in the Surge for testing can be added in the Test Cycle by Drag and Drop and then executed to verify it’s functionality. There is a button to run the execution. Simply on opening the “Local Execution Wizard”, the user will have to mention the complete details about the Tests.
The releases are also known as “Sprint Planning” which are prepared as per the requirement by clicking right on the selected folder. On viewing the panel, complete details will be visible such as “Modified By”, “Created By”, “Version”, “Date” and “Status”. Currently, users have three plugins for the Impact Portal- SAP, Oracle Fusion, and Salesforce. The user will have to define which application will have to be tested.
SAP Fiori and SAP NetWeaver Recorder and Plugin
Now we have two new recorders, “SAP Fiori and SAP Netweaver”. We have created two new recorders for the “SAP Fiori” application which is a web-based application and “SAP NetWeaver” which is a desktop-based application. This will easily record your actions performed on the SAP Applications and create a Test Case and Functional Library. To use this the user will have to click on the Test Case>>Function Library and click on the Recorder. Currently, the plugin is implemented in the “Chrome Add On”.
For SAP Netweaver, we have the Smart Recorder implemented.
There are two options present in the Impact Analysis, one for “Manage Snapshot” and the other for “Impact Session”. First, the user will have to click on the “Manage Snapshot” and click on “Add Snapshot”, from the tab which will allow taking the snapshot. This basically gets changed from the part from where the data has either been changed or not been changed. The environment setting that will be added, will show the list of the settings updated to be projected.
In SAP Impact Analysis user can capture the snapshot on the basis of “Request ID”. The user can show the data on the basis of Security Data and the “ABAP Graph View” for which the results are shown along with the dependency map. The Data is displayed for all the changes occurring in the “Change Analysis”. The “Count” and its “Details” are displayed in the “Test Impact” if the impacted “Functional Library” is impacting any “Business Process” or any “Test Case”.
For Salesforce the “Environment” settings remain the same such as “Add Team”, “Add Environment”, however, the “Field” gets changed. On clicking the “Next” button, the “Add Snapshot” button becomes visible. For Salesforce containing modules and sub-modules, a list is being displayed. On opening the tabs of “Accounts Details”, “Account Information”, “Address Details”, “Address Information” become visible. The information to be extracted can be done by dragging and dropping and adding. This will also provide information about the account owner.
Users will have to click on the Test Management >> Environment Settings to select the tab for Oracle and add “Team” and then “Environment”. Post which user will proceed to Oracle Configuration and click on “New” for the Snapshot. The user will have to proceed by selecting a module and then click on create. When the configuration is complete, the user can click on the Actions button. Further users can click on the view button to know how many set-ups are present in the configuration and the amount of data present in them. Currently, a limit of a thousand has been placed to view the data simultaneously. The data can be downloaded in the excel file by clicking on the “Export Button” on the top right.
OpKey Mobility Android Plugin
Major fixes in being performed on the Spy Mode which earlier was not the possible option.
Fixes in number picker Keyword Mobile_SetNumberPicker
New inner text property is added for hybrid applications which will make execution faster by helping to locate objects at a faster pace and perform the action.
Implementation of Visual Validation keyword
VisualValidation_SetConfiguration– This keyword helps set configuration whether the user wants to create a baseline or not. The user provides the URL of the server where the baseline is stored by providing a Baseline Name, Create a Baseline, and Full Page Screenshot as input argument.
VisualValidation_Checkpoint- This Keyword is used to compare two images, the baseline image, and the current image.
New Appium Specific Keyword to switch context.
Appium_SetContext- This keyword is used from switching between users’ view to native and vice-versa.
Appium_GetAllContext– It provides context present in the entire app.
Appium_GetCurrentContext- This is for fetching the current context of the page, whether it is native or of users.
Appium_OF_SelectDropdownby Text – This has been designed for Oracle App. The user provides a search text in which the user wants to click and a second text to select from the dropdown.
The dashboard constitutes of Four Tiles namely- “Business Process Designer, Continuous Testing, Impact Analysis, Risk Assessment”. On clicking in the particular tab user will be directed to that particular functionality. The tab placed below the main cards of the “Regression Test Executed” shows the status of whether to pass or fail when the execution is performed. It shows the status of the “Test Cycle” – to date how much test cycle has been executed and it’s status. The next tab is “Release Done Till Date” which notifies the date for the time period for which the release scheduled is achieved or not. It also lets the user know how many releases are on time or delayed.
The next tab of “Test Case and Component” reflects the total count of the Test Case or Business Component in the published state created by the user and its status of published mentions only the count of those components and test cases which is in the published state.
The release and test cycle shows the status of the release created and the number of test cycles called. If the test cycle is executed, it reflects the status of either pass or failed. Next comes the “Release Tab” which shows the number count of releases being created. Users can proceed to the next tab of “Release Update”. This tab notifies about the update of two components – whether the Release created has started or is in progress. While creating tests, the user will have to select the application (SAP, Oracle Fusion, Salesforce) and the release type (platform update, patch update) and on selecting the same, its status is reflected in the main tab on the dashboard.
This contains three sub-components of “Effort Saved”, “Time Saved” and “OpKey Updates”.
New ALM Keywords
Two keywords of ALM has been implemented (a) UploadALMTestRunAttachment (b) Upload ALMRunStepStatus.
UploadALMTestRunAttachment is useful in uploading attachments at the run level. There are two arguments for this keyword, one is TestRunID and ExternalFilePath.
UpdateALMRunStepStatus helps in updating the status of the specific step for the run that is being created. It has three arguments, TestRunId, TestStepName, and Status.
ALM – External Tool Integration
Whenever we create an artifact either of Function Library, Test Case, or Business Component, two fields will be displayed in the details tab with the name of “Version and Id”.
The version tab will begin from 1 and a unique ID will be generated. The version will get changed in fixed states, of either taking a backup, backup restore and on other respective conditions.
How to update the version in ALM?
On clicking the tab of “External Tool Integration”, the user will have to go to QC/ALM settings>>Advance Setting. A new UI has been created with the name “Update Version” where the OpKey Field and ALM field are fixed. ALM test run field will be required in the ALM field tab by the user to proceed ahead. In the ALM test run, the field which needs an update of the version will have to be added to the field in the “Add ALM field” tab. After saving and proceeding with the execution, by default, the specific executed test case’s version in the ALM of that specified field will be updated.
Create Validation Report
This is the new keyword that allows in fetching of the Report. Whenever the user will prepare the validation report and execute the run, the report gets generated. The download directory path helps in fetching the saved report by default. For the output, it provides the path to fetch the created report. If someone wants to get the download at a specific place, it provides the option to do that. The report generated notifies the time and status whether of pass and fail, and it will be of only those keywords which are placed above the “Create Validation Report”.
In this form, everything remains the same, but it is in a read-only view. The diagram will be shown as it is, and does not allow to change anything.
Users can view Business Component, Business Process, Test Case, and Job Tree under one folder. Home is the main node. Users can create artifacts from there, export, and also sync them. The buttons on top perform the function of Adding, Refreshing, and Auto-Hiding the artifact of Business Component, Business Process, and Test Case. The rest two buttons are for Syncing and Exporting.
There is one folder and there is one direct artifact. The folder also exists in the artifact. If the user right-clicks on the folder, the user can view a few options of Create, Sync, Export, Copy, Replica, and Create Branch with the folder. However, if the user clicks on the artifact, the user can open a new tab of “Rename, Delete, Sync, Copy, and Export”.
Note: You are recommended to download the latest released OpKey Execution Agent, install it and then use it for the successful test execution and work upon the newly released features.
