We are happy to announce the latest updates to TestObject RDC.
Appium 1.6.5 Support
Appium version 1.6.5 is now available and is set as the default Appium version for testing through on our TestObject Real Device Cloud.
This version provides many enhancements and fixes to existing functionality, which you can review in the release notes. Some key updates include
Full support of W3C specification's handling of capabilities
Support latest Android SDK directory structure
Speed up taking screenshots on Android 5.0 and higher devices.
Allow setting url in native context, for opening deep links in iOS
We have extended our Appium capabilities on TestObject to fully comply with standard Appium device allocation using the deviceName capability. In addition, a new capability privateDevicesOnly was introduced.
Set the capability
deviceName to dynamically allocate a device using its device name (aka Display Name), such as "iPhone 6", "LG G6", "Samsung Galaxy S7". This option gives you access to a large selection of free devices that share the same device name to use in your testing
device name will be the same as the as appear in TestObject device selection menu. For example the
deviceName for the free iPhone 5 device would be "iPhone 5 Free" and for the Samsung Galaxy S7 running Android 7 will be "Samsung Galaxy S7".
User with access to both private and public devices can request allocation of private devices only. Set the capability privateDevicesOnly to true to ensure dynamic allocation will only allocate a device from the private pool to your test.
