Extend PegaUnit setup and cleanup capabilities using custom fixtures

Valid from Pega Version 8.6

The set up and clean up capabilities in the PegaUnit framework are now customizable through the use of custom fixtures. Custom fixtures extend the default testing functionality and allow you to define and implement specific runtime actions, such as running a specific test case during set up or sending an email after testing has completed execution. 

For more information, see Setting up and cleaning the context for a test case or test suite

Identify Pega unit test cases associated with inactive or deleted rules

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

From the Application: Unit testing landing page, you can view a list of all Pega unit test cases that are associated with inactive or deleted rules in the currently included applications. You cannot use these test cases because they will always fail.

Either remove such test cases, or reactivate the rules that they are associated with.

For more information, see Application: Unit testing landing page.

Merged test-coverage report improves overview of application quality

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

You can now merge multiple application-level test coverage reports from built-on apps into a single report. This single test-coverage report provides an overview of your application's quality, and eliminates the need to manually collate data from multiple reports.

For more information, see Generating a merged coverage report.

Updates to creating and cleaning the test data for automated tests

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Creating test data for automated tests is now easier and more customizable. During test case or suite creation, you can now create objects, load work and data objects, and add user pages from the clipboard. These objects and pages can be further configured and will be available in the clipboard when you run the test.

For test cases, you can now define a separate set of actions to perform after the tested rule is run, such as applying a data transform, loading a data page or object, or running an activity,

You can also prevent test data from being removed from the clipboard after a test is run so that subsequent tests can use the same test data.

For more information, see Setting up your test environment and Cleaning up your test environment.
