See Mendix documentation for more information about revisions.

Business rules

  • The Application revision information cannot be deleted from MTA if a Test Configuration is using the Application revision.

Actions on an Application revision

  • Select an Application by clicking on the tile.
  • Navigate to "App revisions".

Add an Application revision

Add a new Application revision to MTA by downloading it from teamserver. The only way to download a revision, is if you select this revision to be used in a Test Configuration.

There are two possible ways of achieving this:

Note that downloading can take some time depending on the size of the Mendix project.

Change the Application revision for a Test Configuration

  • Navigate to the "Test configurations" page.
  • Select the Test Configuration.
  • Navigate to "App revisions".
  • Click on "Change revision".
  • Select the revision you want to test on.
  • MTA will download the revision if it is not yet downloaded.

Adapt Test Suites in a Test Configuration to a downloaded Application revision


MTA will no longer check if the revision of a Test Configuration matches the one that is running on the Application Instance.

Test Suites in a Test Configuration must be adapted to a new downloaded Application revision, in order to be able to execute the Test Configuration.

  • Click the Adapt to next revision” button for the selected Test Configuration. MTA will evaluate all model changes and check the consistency of the Test Suite definitions with the Mendix model. If the test model and the Mendix model are not compliant an Error will be shown.

Note that this can take some time depending on the size of the Mendix project, the number and size of Test Suites in the Test Configuration.


If one Test Configuration is adapting to a revision and you need to adapt another Test Configuration to that revision as well, please make sure to wait until the adapt process is finished. If two Test Configurations are being updated to the same downloaded revision simultaneously, MTA will raise an error during this process.

Delete a downloaded Application revision

It is no longer possible to delete downloaded revisions manually. Application revisions are cleaned up nightly by MTA if they are no longer in use.
