Integration with Katalon Studio

Perfecto now integrates seamlessly with Katalon Studio, a comprehensive tool for the creation of web, mobile app, API, and desktop automation tests. This integration creates a comprehensive solution, with test automation creation on one end and end-to-end support for all areas of app testing on the other end, including scalable test execution and in-depth test failure analysis (Smart Reporting). Using Katalon with the Perfecto plugin provides custom capabilities for connecting the remote drivers with your Perfecto cloud, synchronization with Perfecto Smart Reporting, the ability to run tests in parallel or sequentially, and insight into CI activity via the CI Dashboard

For step-by-step integration instructions, see our Katalon Studio documentation. 

Session sharing for desktop web

Session sharing for desktop web is now available for early access in US East. With this feature, you can work interactively on a web device while simultaneously executing a test script from your favorite IDE. Watch this short video to see how.

If you are interested in participating in the Early Access plan, contact Perfecto Support.

Application management

In the Manual Testing view, the Applications form for the open device now includes a Hide default apps switch. In addition, installed applications now each display a dedicated icon. Previously, each app would show a default icon.

Secure screens on Android 10

Support for capturing secure screens on Android 10 devices is now available for early access. Secure screens are configured on the activity level by specifying FLAG_SECURE while creating a relevant activity. When this flag is set, the content of the screen is treated as secure, meaning that it does not appear in screenshots and cannot be viewed on non-secure displays.

If you are interested in participating in the Early Access plan, contact Perfecto Support.

EOL and deprecation updates

iOS 9 has reached End of Life (EOL). In addition, support for the UIAutomation template for iOS 10 has been deprecated. We recommend connecting iOS 10 devices with XCUItest template.

The latter change is related to the fact that Apple has moved from UIAutomation framework to XCUITest as the UI functional testing framework of choice for iOS 10 and later, mainly because XCUItest is more stable and provides better execution performance. Perfecto fully supports the XCUItest framework. From iOS 11, this is actually the default and the only supported framework for iOS app tests.

Note: These changes will not have any effect on existing automation scripts. Current configurations of iOS 9 and iOS 10 with UIAutomation will continue to work.

For comprehensive EOL information, see Suspension of support policy | Mobile device OS.

Browser support

Added support for Chromium-based Microsoft Edge 80 and Google Chrome 80. See also Supported platforms.
