Functionality Enhancements

Update Environment Health Check statuses with attached log files via the API, and a new Environment Health Check status: Issue.

“As an Environment Manager, I want to update an Environment’s Health Check status using the API and include an attached log file.”

Health Check Dashboard Enhancements

  • Now, the users of Plutora’s API can:
    • Include Test Name, Health Check Status, and an Error Log (as a text file attachment) for Environments via Plutora’s API and view them on the Health Check Dashboard:
      • POST /environmentHealthCheck
    • View Environment Health Check data using:
      • POST /environmentHealthCheck/FullHistory
      • POST /environmentHealthCheck/CurrentStatus
  • Health Check Dashboard also has a new health status: Issue.
  • Health check statuses can be added to Environments via the API so it is no longer necessary to use test scripts.


Import Requirements and Test Cases via new import wizards.

“As a Test Manager, I want to import my Requirements and Test Cases via an import wizard, instead of adding them manually one by one.”

Bulk Import Requirements and Test Cases

  • Now, Requirements and Test Cases can be bulk imported via new import wizards that enable you to:
    • Download a template with all fields (including custom fields) pre-populated as column headings.
    • Automatically map columns based on field names.
    • Validate the data prior to executing the import.
    • View a detailed summary and log once the import is complete.
  • Test Case test step numbers are now auto-generated.
The Project ID field has been renamed.

“As a QA Manager, I use Plutora and Plutora Test and I want to eliminate the confusion that they both have a field called Project ID.”
