TestArchitect Client

Enhancements to existing features

  1. TestArchitect-Microsoft Test Manager integration improvement

    • Ability to specify an AUT’s build number when uploading test results to MTM from TestArchitect.
    • You can now configure TestArchitect to select, based on run status (Passed, Failed, etc.), which HTML-based test results are sent to MTM as an attachment during an automatic or manual upload.
  2. Access to test results in a web browser on any machine, regardless of whether or not TestArchitect Client is installed.
  3. Performance improvement during startup of the Repository Server.
