4.4.6

 

New Feature:

Version 4.4.6 introduces a new method to access the health of the Sauce Connect. When Sauce Connect Proxy is running the following health metrics are exposed.

  • Sauce Connect connections status indicating if this currently alive and healthy.
  • Timestamp when the connection status changed.
  • A running count of how many times the connection was re-established.

For more information please refer : Understanding Sauce Connect Proxy Client Metrics

Bug Fixes and Improvements:

Fixes a bug that would cause SC to use invalid URL's in it's internal proxy, causing --proxy  and --pac functionality to break.

Better logging to indicate the requirement of specifying the absolute path of the PAC file when using the --pac command line flag to start Sauce Connect.

Legacy RDC Announcement

Return to the Product Announcements and Release Notes Blog

 

Dear Sauce User,

As you may have already been aware, Sauce Labs has recently launched our new Public and Private Real Device Cloud (RDC) products, which come with all new features such as manual testing, native test frameworks, and reliability improvements. We have therefore chosen to move our legacy Real Device Cloud (RDC) product into maintenance mode, meaning we will not be adding new features, devices, or OS versions. 

Just to clarify, we have not yet set a date to shut down the old RDC product. The purpose of this notification is to help start a conversation around migration strategies and timelines for your account. If your account executive hasn't reached out to you yet on migrating your testing to either the new Public and Private RDC products, or our recently upgraded Emulator and Simulator products, this would be a great time to reach out. 

Our mutual goal is to help your team test successfully across all of your test cases and requirements. Sauce Labs is dedicated to ensuring that we are constantly improving our service to help you to reach that goal, and this product migration is a part of our strategy towards investing deeper into the mobile space. 

As always, please feel free to reach out with feedback and comments to either your account executive or chiarng@saucelabs.com

Thanks,
Chiarng Lin
Product Manager, Virtual Platforms

Hi Sauce users,

We are thrilled to announce Sauce Labs Test Analytics as the latest addition to the Sauce Labs Automated Testing Cloud! Test Analytics reduces the time spent on analyzing test results by providing users trends on key metrics, so they can track down failures faster! We are beginning to roll out Analytics today and you will have access to it by Friday 4/21/2017.


With Test Analytics users can

  • Quickly determine application quality on latest browsers and mobile platforms

  • Identify error rate by teams and platforms

  • Narrow down to the builds and tests that cause errors in top platforms

And a lot more...

Product Overview

Test Analytics is available both through our Sauce Web Application and through REST APIs.

Test Analytics includes the following metrics

  • Number of tests

  • Success/failure ratio

  • Error rate

  • Build and test statistics

Click-drag UI

Allows you to quickly zoom into areas of interest.

Filtering test metrics

Slice and dice metrics by

  • Time period (maximum of 14 days)

  • Owner - depending on access restrictions

  • OS

  • Browser (also includes mobile emulator/simulator versions)

In addition to the above, we also have filters to narrow down problem tests/builds

  • Show errored tests ONLY

  • Show failed tests ONLY

You can find additional documentation on how to use the Web interface here .

Please check it out and let us know what you think!

If you would like to know more, join us for a webinar on Wednesday, 4/19/2017


Thanks and happy testing!

 Sauce Labs Team.

Hello Sauce users,

We are pleased to announce a few changes with our Sauce web application. We have made changes to the Nav bar and user menu within the application.  These changes help us provide a more modern look-and-feel to our UI along with highlighting key functionality to our users.

  • The nav bar has now been made collapsible to provide more area within the application for users to troubleshoot.



  • User menu and help menu has been moved to the top of the page. This provides more visibility to our support portals, status page, documentation and team management features


   
  • Search bar moved to the top of the archives page to make it easily accessible


 

Thanks and happy testing!

Sauce Labs Team.

Dear Sauce User,

With our most recent updates, we are now offering Selenium 3 support across Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer (version 10 and higher), Microsoft Edge, and Safari (only on macOS Sierra) browsers. Users can use the desired capability `seleniumVersion`: '3.3.1' to get the latest version of Selenium 3 support (reference).

Selenium 3 provides many benefits to your testing, including:

  • WebDriver users will just find bug fixes and a drop-in replacement for 2.x.
  • Selenium Grid users will also find bug fixes and a simple update.
  • The WebDriver APIs are now the only APIs actively supported by the Selenium project.
  • The Selenium RC APIs have been moved to a “legacy” package.
  • The original code powering Selenium RC has been replaced with something backed by WebDriver, which is also contained in the "legacy" package.
  • By a quirk of timing, Mozilla have made changes to Firefox that means that from Firefox 48 you must use their geckodriver to use that browser, regardless of whether you're using Selenium 2 or 3.

For more details, please check out this blog post or the Selenium open source project release notes.

Thanks,

Chiarng Lin
