Pega Test Automation Kit 1.6

Updated on April 8, 2022

The Pega Test Automation Kit 1.6 release includes several new features.


The following new features are now available:

Custom steps to identify non-recordable elements
The new release of Pega Test Automation Kit provides you with a convenient way to record any elements that scenario tests do not identify. With this enhancement, you can record any user interface element by providing an Xpath of that element. For example, if the test does not recognize a non out-of-the-box element, you can use the element's Xpath to include that element in tests.

For more information about Xpath, visit the W3schools webpage.

For more information about custom steps, see Adding custom steps to scenario tests.

Reuse of data captured from the UI
In your current session, you can now copy values from the user interface of certain tests, and reuse those values in another step of the same test, or in another test. You specify a unique property name to store the captured data, and then refer to the property name in other steps or tests. In this way, you ensure a smooth and automated testing experience.

The following video shows the steps to reuse data from the UI:
