Test Smarter with SeaLights Test Optimization

Shorten Your Testing Cycle
Time by 50%-90%

With the growing number of builds and frequency of releases, the software and QA teams are struggling to maintain the high quality of their builds and complete test cycles on time. This is where SeaLights is breaking the ground with Test Impact Analysis which is a part of our Test Optimization solution. In the coming year more capabilities will be added, such as Test Impact Analysis for pull request, test prioritization, code to test map, and test insights.

Shorten your long testing cycles while increasing quality

Manual Testers get test Execution recommendations!
Scaling manual tests is timely and costly. SeaLights’ Test Impact Analysis uses AI to evaluate manual tests that have been previously executed so that manual testers know exactly which tests they need to run and release hotfixes efficiently, quickly, and with higher confidence.

Test Impact Analysis for Manual Tests >

We Work with Any Testing Framework with Test Impact Analysis Public API

When SeaLights is integrated with an automated testing framework, the selective list of recommended tests is fed automatically into the testing framework. While SeaLights supports many frameworks, Test Impact Analysis public API is available if your framework is not on the testing frameworks list.

Usability Improvements

Improved navigation and display in Pull Request viewer

(in your SCM using the Chrome Extension) to allow pull request approvers to make better-informed decisions:

Additional data and metrics in pull request SeaLights toolbar

  • Pull request quality gate result
  • Overall coverage
  • Reference build

Improved Dashboard Search Functionality

The search function on the dashboard will now return results from all applications and not just the set already loaded on the dashboard.

Cockpit enhancements for SeaLights DevOps users

Cockpit shows the status of coverage data provided by each agent so you can see when and whether an agent sent coverage data from the application server or browser

Scalability Improvement for large applications

SeaLights is now much faster at calculating quality risks for large data sets.

Performance Improvement

The core component of the SeaLights Analysis Engine has gone through a major refactoring, it was redesigned to handle large number of application services and large number of builds and test executions as well as extra large application monoliths

April 30th, 2020

Public APIs

SeaLights’ Public API provides an ability to query data which can be displayed to stakeholders through other systems/dashboards used in the company

Full API Reference

Accessible from SeaLights UI, Quick Start Guide and code samples

Revised SeaLights Public APIs

For getting full build data (Coverage / Metadata / Tests State), set/get Quality Gates, Integration Build management, set/get TGA Report, get Audit Log data and more.

Dashboard

Code Labels

Code Label Rules definition now facilitates scenarios where the same rule should be applied to multiple apps. The user can apply a rule to all apps whose name begins with a prefix, or to apps selected from the full list

Coverage Report Enhancements

  • Faster loading time
  • Coverage Report will include by default, only code that is scoped, unignored and modified. This is a toggle that can be switched off to include the entire code base

Installation & Configuration

SeaLights Cockpit – Lab Monitor

Lab Monitor is a new item under Cockpit, that provides the user with another view of the configuration – in a lab timeline orientation. It shows the agents that were active during the selected time range.

SeaLights Settings – Recommended Agent Versions

Agent Versions allows the authorized user to lock the installed agent version, rather than automatically run the latest version available. This is useful when it is necessary to guarantee compatibility between agents and host frameworks.

Simplified CI Configuration

Providing BuildSessionID for Test Runners as part of the configuration process is no longer required. This capability significantly simplifies a new app’s configuration process with Sealights.

Settings

Reorganized menu for easier navigation

SeaLights Chrome Extension, for SCM Pull Requests and Code Viewers

Easy Navigation

When a pull request or file includes multiple annotations of utested code changes and they are far apart, our new addition allows easy navigation between annotations.
