Version 14.3 also allows you to integrate with TestProject, so you can test iOS applications without a Mac. For detailed information, see this TricentisKnowledge Base Article.

Additionally, Mobile Engine 3.0 now supports the Flutter and React Native framework. This feature is still in a beta phase. For detailed information, see this Tricentis Knowledge Base Article.

Note: Appium and Tosca Mobile Assistant are no longer part of the Tricentis Tosca installation. To use Mobile Engine 3.0, you must download and install these components separately.

SAP Web Extension 3.0

Tricentis Tosca 14.3 STS supports SAPUI5 version 1.93.

Furthermore, we have improved the standard Module SAP Fiori Tile. It can now handle tiles that have the same title and subtitle and occur within the same category.

Self-healing Mode

Our latest version of Tricentis Tosca includes Self-healing Mode for Tricentis Tosca XScan, Tricentis Tosca Rescan, and the Recorder.

If you enable Self-healing Mode and Tosca fails to find the control during execution, Tosca tries to find a similar control in the system under test. This adds stability to test runs, reduces manual effort, and allows you to easily identify changed controls.


TextStream Engine 3.0

Tricentis Tosca 14.3 STS introduces the TextStream Engine 3.0, which allows you to steer and test TextStream objects. You can use it to load TextStream objects, manipulate their content and save them to different destination types.

Tosca Data Integrity

With Tricentis Tosca 14.3 STS, comparing opposite-sorted datasets is more than twice as fast, and uses less memory.

Also, you can now steer the Data Integrity Agent via command line. This allows you to start the agent and run your data comparisons immediately, without any detours.


Tosca SAP Solution Manager Integration

Tricentis Tosca 14.3 STS includes the new SNC configuration in the SAP Solution Manager Wizard.


Furthermore, you can now provide your RFC credentials directly in the SAP Solution Manager Wizard.


Tricentis Update Service

Tricentis is excited to offer a technical preview of the new Tricentis Update Service.

Tricentis Update Service uncomplicates the patch process for Engines 3.0. Unlike with patches, you don't have to complete a full Tricentis Tosca installation to apply fixes. Instead, you just download relevant update packages from the Tricentis Support Portal and Tricentis Update Service does the rest!


Tricentis Vision AI

Our latest version of Tricentis Tosca includes self healing of Vision AI TestCases. Vision AI allows you to enable self healing of every control that can't be found when you run your ExecutionList.


With Tricentis Tosca 14.3 STS, we have improved table detection for Tricentis Vision AI.

Furthermore, Vision AI controls now support the business property ResultCount.

Our latest version uses the native messaging of Google Chrome which improves the execution of Google Chrome tests in a Terminal Server environment.

Known issues

Database Engine 3.0

Passwords can't contain curly brackets or semicolons.

Salesforce Engine 3.0

Salesforce Scan doesn't process record type selectors. If Modules you create with Salesforce Scan contain record type selectors, the corresponding TestStep fails.

Additionally, Tosca XScan identifies some types of drop-downs as Links instead of ComboBoxes. If this happens when you scan your Salesforce application with Tosca XScan, follow the steps below:

  1. Close XScan.

  2. Expand and collapse the drop-down in your application.

  3. Scan the page again. XScan now offers a Link and a ComboBox for the drop-down.

  4. For your Module, select both the Link and the ComboBox.

  5. In your TestCase, create two TestSteps from the Module:

    • In the first TestStep, click on the link.

    • In the second TestStep, steer the drop-down.

TextStream Engine 3.0

When you use ActionMode Constraint on a table column, Tricentis Tosca fails to find any corresponding row for that column.

Tosca Data Integrity

  • Passwords can't contain curly brackets or semicolons.

  • In rare circumstances, canceling a row by row reconciliation test may not clean up temporary files.

  • Only one user per Windows Server and Terminal Server is supported for Tosca Data Integrity test execution.
