Release 1.6.2

Release date

19 may 2022

Supported Mendix versions

Menditect supports the Mendix Long-Term Support Version (LTS) and Medium-Term Support Version (MTS).

Highlights in this release

    We have made significant improvements in the Recorder functionality.
    • It is now possible to record microflows but also record create, change and retrieve object actions, and have MTA create Teststeps from these actions.
    • When creating a new Recording, it is no longer necessary to choose which steps to create.
    • All the detected user actions will automatically result in one or more Teststeps in the Test Case.
    • In this version, the Recording is also given two parameters that can be set; the maximum duration of the recording, and the maximum amount of detected user actions. This is to prevent long running of recordings as a result of an unefficent flow in the Mendix code.
    • Read more about recordings in the How to? section!
    • Because Recording is still in Beta, we have included a separate support form just for enthousiasts using this brand new feature.
      We welcome your feedback!
    It is now possible to add a Teststep between existing Teststeps!
    • Choose if you want to create the Teststep before, or after the selected Teststep.
    • This is a much requested feature especially when you need to set your associations.
    When a Microflow input parameter is an Object, it is now possible to set the value to Empty.
    Microflow input parameters can now be added as an item in the Datavariation.
    A List of objects can now be filled with objects from the output of multiple Teststeps.
    The documentation site is enriched with much more content.
    • Best practices added for Unit Tests and Process Tests.
    • Added versioning for the Reference Guide.
    • Explanatories added, linking to blogs on the Menditect website.
    • "How to" section has been updated, especially to support usage of the MTA Plugin Module.
    • Legal documents (EULA, SLA, Privacy Policy) have been moved from Google Docs.
    • Releasenotes have been moved from Google Docs.
    A form to send a support request can now be opened directly from MTA.
