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.

- 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
