New Features

Shared Objects Repository: Drive Browser

Those of you using Drive Browser tasks will love this one I’m sure.

Instead of having to create a Drive Browser task manually in each of your tests, you can now save them in a repository and re-use them in any tests in just 2 clicks!

The process is easy:

First: Set the location of your “Shared Elements Directory”.

Next: Save the Drive Browser task in the repository using “Export to the shared elements directory” button.

Finally: Import a Drive Browser task in your tests in 2 clicks.

The great thing with this feature is that if you modify a shared task, all your tests will use these changes without having to do anything.

If you don’t know what Drive Browsers are. You can read more about them here.

Task Workflow: Pass / Fail On Task Duration

We have added the ability to determine if a task should Pass or Fail not only based on its functional result but also now based on its duration.

Imagine your Functional Test performs a Login to Tableau, Opening a Viz, Setting Filters and Parameters. Of course you want to make sure everything is working as planned. You can now also decide if the tasks should fail if they take too long to run.

In this example, my Open Viz task would fail if it takes more than 2.5 seconds to run. Even if the viz actually opened.

Integration With Webhooks

You could already integrate with Slack. Now integrate with “any” incoming Webhooks that support JSON. I personally have tested with MS Teams, Google Chat and Jira. Works great!

Here is a card I created for Google Chat:

I’ll soon release a blog giving samples on how to achieve this.

Reduce Time And Clicks To Add A Task To A Test

When adding a new task to an existing test, the interface will automatically scroll you down to that task, highlight it and give it a default name.

Rename “Assert Data Equals” To “Assert CSV Equals”

The task Assert Data Equals wasn’t the right label for what it does. It is now correctly called Assert CSV Equals.

Wiiisdom Ops Shipped With JAVA Embedded In The Product

We are now shipping Wiiisdom Ops for Tableau with JAVA. This will save you the hassle of managing this yourselves. If you really prefer instead using your own JAVA 11, of course this is possible.

Significant Performance Increase When Taking A Snapshot

When taking a snapshot of your bigger vizzes, you will notice a significant performance increase. Yay!

Compatibility

  • Tableau: Support for Tableau 2022.1
  • Google Chrome: Support for Google Chrome 98

Change Logs

Drive Browser Task

Due to an update to a library we are using, the function “Submit Form” in a Drive Browser is now deprecated.

You should be using the function “Click” instead.

It is likely that your CSS/xPath for that function will need to be updated. Do get in touch with our support team if you need any assistance.
