Tricentis NeoLoad, the market-leading continuous performance testing solution, has just released version 7.6.

What’s new in this release?

We’ve made NeoLoad dashboards more powerful and flexible. Our APIs are now more extensible so you can integrate chaos testing campaigns, export raw data to a third-party system, manage your workspaces more systematically and stop a test from within a virtual user path. As-code validation capabilities have been enhanced, and we’ve introduced advanced settings for as-code scenarios. We added more search functionality so you can get to test results faster. And more.

The highlights in a nutshell:

Dashboard improvements

New analysis capabilities

Dashboards now include tables and text-editable comment fields to organize analysis. These new analysis capabilities come in addition to previously released line graphs.

Download graphs as png

When analyzing your test results through dashboards, you can share a specific graph by downloading it as a .png file.

API improvements

Export raw data

Extract raw data from Neoload Web through the Rest API.

See GetTestRawResult and GetTestRawResultElement

Custom events

When synchronizing test scenarios with external processes (monitoring, chaos) you can declare external events that will appear in Neoload Web test results values.

See PostTestResultEvents

CRUD-based workspace management

Programmatically manage (create, update, delete) your workspaces and their settings like quotas and members.

See Workspace Management API

JavaScript API to stop a test

Use the JavaScript API to stop a test in the event where a virtual user experiences an issue during a test.

See RuntimeContext.stopTest()

As-code improvements

Assertions

Use as-code based tests to validate server response to ensure that the test is running as expected.

See assert_content on a request

Advanced setting for a scenario

Define advanced settings for an as-code scenario like monitoring options, rendezvous policies, excluded URLs, or APM configuration.

Custom load policy

You can define an as-code Custom Load Policy.

Search on tests

Search test results by their test name in the advanced search window or in the test result picker on the dashboard. There’s also a shortcut to retrieve the test results related to a test.
