Furthermore, we support the message brokers ActiveMQ Artemis, Amazon SNS and Amazon SQS. You can now easily create an ActiveMQ Artemis and Amazon Web Services SNS/SQS connection with the API Connection Manager.
Automation Recording Assistant (ARA)
Tricentis Tosca 13.1 includes the new Tricentis Automation Recording Assistant (Tricentis ARA). Tricentis ARA is an improved version of the Recorder which also ships as a separate product.
With Tricentis ARA, you can record your tests in a simpler and more intuitive user interface. It also offers several new functions, such as playing back your recording, editing TestSteps, or adding comments to TestSteps.
With Tricentis Tosca 13.1, if you use Distributed Execution with AOS (Automation Object Service), you can configure different test results folders and specify for each TestEvent in which folder the test results should be saved.
Mobile Engine 3.0
As of Tricentis Tosca 13.1, we introduce improvements in the Mobile Scan:
You can now see friendly names of applications when you select your device in the Mobile Scan.
With Tricentis Tosca 13.1, we also introduce new standard Modules for Mobile Engine 3.0:
The Switch Mobile App Module, which you can use, for example, to automate multi-factor authentication.
The Draw on Screen Module, which you can use, for example, to automate security patterns.
As of now, Android SDK is no longer provided as part of the Tricentis Tosca installation. To use the Mobile Engine 3.0 for Android test automation, you have to install Android SDK Tools manually.
As of Tricentis Tosca 13.1, Mobile Exploratory Testing is no longer supported. A new solution will be introduced in a future release.
PDF Engine 3.0
Tricentis Tosca 13.1 introduces a new way of creating controls in your PDF file. You can now specify an area using its relative position, that is, its location in relation to an anchor element in your PDF file. This is useful if PDF elements always appear in the same position relative to each other, but you can't safely predict their location on the page.

Repository Authentication: You can assign Test Data repositories in Test Data Service with specific read/write/administration rights for user groups from Tosca Server User Administration, thus protecting your repository.
Repository Management: You can use the Web UI of Test Data Service to manage repository and type renaming, thus removing the need to do this via API.
Test Management Platform
As of Tricentis Tosca 13.1, you can export TestCases from Tricentis Tosca to qTest. The export functionality still has some limitations, but it allows you to have an overview of your TestCases for planning purposes.
With Tricentis Tosca 13.1, the selective backup feature allows you to backup a single ComponentFolder without having to create a backup of the common repository.
As of Tricentis Tosca 13.1, Tosca BI allows you to log all data that is used in the comparison of a source and target into a file.
