Rapise 6.0 Released with New User Interface & Codeless Automation Enhancements

18-Mar-2019 by Inflectra Product News

We are pleased to announce the release of Rapise 6.0, the latest version of our acclaimed test automation tool. The latest version provides a completely redesigned user interface that streamlines common operations, makes almost all features one-click away, and overall improves productivity by over 30%.

What's New in Version 6.0

For a full description of what's changed in v6.0, please check out our blog post from earlier in the month - Spotlight on Rapise 6.0: UI Redesign, Dynamics Unified Client and SAP Fiori. Here are a few highlights:

User Interface Changes

We have removed the old Rapise ribbon, and instead moved all of the functions formerly in the ribbon into a set of quick to access menus that allow access to all the features from any page (vs. requiring the right ribbon to be displayed):

  • File
  • Edit
  • View
  • Test
  • Tools
  • Settings
  • Help

In addition, the compact toolbar replaces the ribbon and provides even faster access to the most commonly used features (e.g. saving tests, recording, learning, playback, spy tools, debugging, viewing the RVL test script, viewing custom function JavaScript files, viewing the manual test steps) without needing to have every option on the toolbar, which was one of the limitations of the ribbon design.

For example, if you look at the Edit menu, all of the options for editing the current test script (whether it be a codeless RVL file or a JavaScript function) are in one place:

Similarly, the View menu provides access to the shortcuts to the different parts of the test script (the main test, user functions, manual steps, web services) from a central place.

Support for SAP Fiori Applications

We are pleased to announce that Rapise 6.0 also adds support for the SAP Fiori suite of enterprise applications Based on the OpenUI5 web application framework, SAP Fiori brings the power of the world's most popular ERP package into the cloud computing age:

As companies switch to the new versions of SAP, Rapise will be ready to help them with their testing and process automation needs.

Enhanced Support for Dynamics 365 CRM

Not to be outdone, Rapise 6.0 also includes enhanced support for the latest versions of Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM, including its new Unified Client Interface that is designed to work across a full range of devices and platforms:

Rapise now covers all the latest versions of Dynamics 365, including Sales, Finance & Operations, and Business Central as well as support for the traditional Dynamics AX and NAV platforms.

New Documentation System

Since all these changes necessitated massive updates and redesigns of our entire documentation library for Rapise (every screenshot has changed!) we have decided to implement a completely new documentation system that replaces the current collection of separate web pages, PDF documents and Microsoft Help files.

The new documentation will live at a dedicated URL - https://rapisedoc.inflectra.com/ and will provide a central gateway to the latest, most up to date documentation:

This documentation centralizes the documentation for the entire Rapise platform. We are planning on similar changes for Spira if the reception from users is positive.

Where Can I Get the New Version?

You can download the latest version of Rapise from the Customer Portal on our website. The release notes are available if you would like to learn more.
