Automated Test Framework release notes

ServiceNow® Automated Test Framework feature enhancements and updates in the Jakarta release.

New in the Jakarta release

Choice of browser for running tests
Choose the browser for the client test runner. If an automated test includes a UI-based step, the system asks you to choose an existing or new test runner.
Screenshots mode preferences
Optimize test performance by controlling which types of screenshots the system captures during a test: all screenshots, no screenshots, or just screenshots for failed test steps.
Schedule automated test suite executions
Schedule a test suite to execute at a specified date and time.
Test suite email reports
Designate users to notify by email when a scheduled test suite finishes executing. The email contains information and links to further information for the Scheduled Suite Run and its results.
Compare execution times across different runs of the same test or same test suite.
  • Compare Test Results compares the length of time to execute each test over selected runs for this test suite. This report is available from the Test Suite Results related list on the Suite form.
  • Compare Test Step Results compares the length of time to execute each test step over selected runs for this test. This report is available from the Test Results related list on the Test form.
  • Compare results for automated test suite runs (aging report) compares how many tests passed versus failed across different runs of the same test suite. This report is available from the Test Suite Results related list on the Suite form.
Transactions recorded during tests
Better understand test performance by inspecting transaction records for tests and test steps. You can view these records from the Step Transactions related list on the Step Results record and from the Test Transactions related list on the Test Results record. See View transaction data for automated test results .
REST test steps
Create automated tests that include steps for sending REST requests.
Service Catalog test steps
Write automated tests to validate catalog items. You can write end to end tests for both the requester and fulfiller flows.

Changed in this release

  • Field added to transaction tables The recorded_at field in the sys_atf_result_item and sys_atf_transaction_mtom tables supports the ability to view transaction data for automated test results.

Activation information

Platform feature – active by default.

Browser requirements

Automated Test Framework works with all browsers supported by the ServiceNow platform, but some browsers have features to throttle CPU time that can hamper automated test performance. For information on how to mitigate these issues, see browser recommendations for ATF.
