API Engine 3.0
As of Tricentis Tosca 12.2, the API Engine automatically creates dynamic list items when it detects a list in an API Module. This allows you to work with dynamic Module Attributes in API requests and responses instead of static list elements. Furthermore, we now support dynamic creation of query, path, and header parameters.
With the newest version of Tricentis Tosca, you can update API Modules from RAML and SWAGGER definitions and validate API Module Attributes. Additionally, it is now possible to use the Auto fill Values functionality on TestCase level.

For Mobile Scan, we have added the option to highlight selected controls in the Live View window.
With Tricentis Tosca 12.2, you can use the new Swipe on Screen Module, which allows you to perform swipe operations directly on the device screen. With this special execution task, you don’t have to specify the control on which the swipe is performed.
Furthermore, with Tricentis Tosca 12.2, we introduce Image-based Test Automation for Mobile Engine 3.0. Take screenshots directly in the Live View window and use them to capture images for Image-based test automation of mobile applications.
As of Tricentis Tosca 12.2, we introduce several features that enhance the usage of the Mobile Engine 3.0 with the mobile cloud Perfecto. With Tricentis Tosca 12.2 you can:
Send custom tags through test configuration parameters, which enables you to enrich your Test Analysis reports in Perfecto.

Test Management Platform
As of Tricentis Tosca12.2, new security improvements reduce potential threats and make communication with Tricentis smoother and easier in case of incidents. The following security improvements are now supported:
Add additional log information to certain components.
Reduce error message contents to necessary information only.
Restrict file upload to Exploratory Testing Server.
Update jQuery and Bootstrap libraries.
Furthermore, with Tricentis Tosca12.2 you can choose to view dynamic expressions with the Graphical View. This new graphical visualization allows for easier understanding of dynamic expressions.
Tricentis File Service
With Tricentis Tosca 12.2, the new Tricentis File Service allows you to store newly attached files or newly created logs outside of the local workspace. If you enable Tricentis File Service, the files and logs are automatically stored on Tricentis File Service. This improves the performance of your workspace.
You can access the corresponding file services of all the projects that you have access to. Authentication for Tricentis File Service is only necessary when central user management is enabled.
Tricentis Service Configuration
As of Tricentis Tosca12.2, you can configure every Tricentis service that you select during server installation via Tricentis Server Configuration.
Tricentis User Administration
With Tricentis Tosca12.2, you can now work with the brand new server based Tricentis User Administration, which enables you to manage users and groups centrally on the Tosca Server across multiple projects.
As of Tricentis Tosca12.2, you can view failed test step logs that are now published to the newly extended reporting database. You can also create reports on custom properties of objects, such as TestCases, as the reporting database now contains these as separate properties.
With Tricentis Tosca 12.2, you can connect to your Microsoft Analysis Services running on SQL Server (SSAS) or Azure to create Reconciliation tests with the newly designed Row by Row Comparison (SSAS OLAP) Wizard.
Additionally, the Tosca BI AddIn now includes the JSON/XML File Load into Caching Database Module. This new Module enables you to load a JSON or XML file into a caching database and query it through SQL. This allows you to run all sorts of standard tests of Tosca BI, including Metadata field tests and Row by Row Comparison.
Tosca Continuous Integration
Tricentis Tosca 12.2 has a new setting that allows you to get intermediate test results in your Tosca Continuous Integration tests.
So far, you received summary results at the very end of the execution. Consequently, if the build was canceled, you did not have a current result. With this change, you continuously get updated results. This ensures that you always have the most current view on your test results.
The new setting ReportIntermediateResults always applies to test execution with Tosca Distributed Execution.
Tosca Firefox Engine (Classic)
As of Tricentis Tosca 12.3 the Tosca Firefox Engine (Classic) will be no longer supported. If you use the Firefox Engine, update your TestCases to the XBrowser Engine 3.0 before you upgrade to Tricentis Tosca 12.3.
Tosca Orchestrated Service Virtualization
As of version 12.2, Tricentis Tosca automatically creates dynamic list items when it detects a list in an OSV Module. This allows you to work with dynamic Module Attributes in OSV requests and responses instead of static list elements. Furthermore, we now support dynamic creation of query, path, and header parameters.
With the newest version of Tricentis Tosca, you can update OSV Modules from RAML and SWAGGER definitions and validate OSV Module Attributes. Additionally, it is now possible to use the Auto fill Values functionality on Scenario level.
With Tricentis Tosca 12.2, you can edit and delete Test Data Service records in Web UI.
Additionally, the Revert to Revision task is now available for both master and branch workspaces.
