For their Agile and DevOps-focused application development teams, leading companies want to achieve both speed and quality without compromise. That’s where NeoLoad 6.3 comes in, helping to meet increasing user demands, bring apps to market faster and more frequently, and release flawlessly with confidence, every time.
What’s New in this Release?
NeoLoad 6.3 continues Neotys’ focus on enabling Agile and DevOps teams to execute superior performance testing while shortening the build/test cycle, enable collaboration across teams, and establish Performance Testing as a trusted partner within the software delivery chain. Enhancements in this release focus on NeoLoad’s platform openness and core load testing features.
Enhanced Dynatrace Integration
NeoLoad 6.3 includes improvements to NeoLoad’s native integration with Dynatrace and new bundle of Advanced Actions available from Neotys Labs leveraging load testing analysis via Dynatrace’s OneAgent. The expanded capability means tighter integration with a key element of the testing ecosystem, faster test cycles, and pre-production (“Shifting Right”) & Component/API-level testing (“Shifting Left”).
These new integration features make it easier and more effective to interact with Dynatrace APM deployed in the testing environment during NeoLoad app load testing. With this setup, testers can precisely analyze how the whole application and its ecosystem are behaving.
Users of NeoLoad Web are now able to modify the success status of a test through the API, enabling testers the ability to define and customize success/failure criteria for tests. Testers can programmatically (using the REST API) define what success and failure mean, based on test results data accessed (REST API). The NeoLoad RUNTIME API has also been enhanced to allow testers to automatically and programmatically launch several tests during the same Cloud session.
Access to NeoLoad Web URLs from the Inside
A tester/developer writing “glue code” within NeoLoad’s GUI that integrates with other tools can easily access URLs related to NeoLoad Web making the integration tighter. The tester/developer can access the following URLs:
- NeoLoad Web front-end
- The entry point of NeoLoad Web APIs
- Test Run in NeoLoad Web
Testers/developers can also access Proxy settings and NLW-related URLs (in different situations and points of the product):
- From the standard command-line output (Stdout) when running a test; the URL of the running test is displayed
- When using the NeoLoad GUI Runtime API access to running test URL
- When using either the Custom Action API or the JS API, access available to both the URL of running test and NeoLoad Web front-end URL
Password Encryption in Test Scenarios
NeoLoad 6.3 includes enhanced security for test credentials to protect against unauthorized user access.
Microsoft Monitoring Enhancements
Monitoring a Windows machine or Microsoft Server (SQL Server, IIS, .Net) is now easier with NeoLoad 6.3’s new authentication capabilities for Microsoft environments.
