What’s New in NeoLoad 7.5?

Workspaces

Overview

NeoLoad now introduces a new capability called Workspaces. Workspaces allow administrators to group users into teams and assign quotas for virtual users (see more below in the license quota section). Workspaces enable teams to organize and collaborate on their performance testing tasks, assets and results.

Workspaces enable people to separate assets such as tests, test results and webhooks in a designated Workspace and associated team members or share assets among multiple Workspaces and teams.

Users may belong to several workspaces but will only see the contents of one Workspace at a time.

When running tests from NeoLoad Web, the Zone’s hosting Controllers and Load Generators are shared between all Workspaces to optimize resource usage. You may use the Reservation feature to control the access to these shared resources and guarantee that they are available for important planned tests.

Quotas on Licensed Virtual Users

Administrators can define for each Workspace a quota to limit the maximum number of Virtual Users of the license that all members of the workspace can use.

The quota is checked for tests run by NeoLoad Web as well as for independent Controllers that use NeoLoad Web as their license server.

Reorganized Settings

The Settings panels have been reorganized so that all settings at Account level are in a single location (for Admin only) and the settings related to a Workspace are grouped together.

New API

The NeoLoad Web API version 3 handles Workspaces. Previous versions of the API support lists of assets and creation of assets in the default Workspace.

Moving Assets

NeoLoad Web has the capability to move assets like tests and test results from one Workspace to another. This allows you to organize your current test assets to new Workspaces as you create them.

Dynatrace Native Integration

Dynatrace and NeoLoad are now natively integrated in a bidirectional way, allowing users to push Dynatrace metrics into Neoload, or NeoLoad metrics into Dynatrace, native monitors through a very simple configuration. Once configured, this integration discovers the system under test in the Dynatrace Smartscape and pushes Neoload generated performance engineering context and metrics into Dynatrace itself, or Dynatrace metrics into NeoLoad, allowing more powerful analysis in both NeoLoad and Dynatrace.

Tosca Integration v2.2

NeoLoad’s integration with Tosca already supports the conversion of any Tosca web test, including SAP web tests, and Tosca SAP GUI tests. The NeoLoad-Tosca integration now supports a new Tosca test type, API testing. And, the integration is also now compatible with the latest Tosca release, Tosca 13.3

Other Enhancements

  • Minor GUI enhancements when defining the variables to be exported with the raw data.
  • MySQL driver upgraded to the latest version

How to Update to NeoLoad 7.5

Provided you have a valid support package, here’s how to update your version of NeoLoad:

  1. Download NeoLoad 7.5
  2. Install NeoLoad in a new directory (do not install on top of the old version).
  3. You don’t need a new license key. You will just be asked to activate your current license key for version 7.5
  4. Make sure you back up your projects before using them with the new version.
