This release contains a minor breaking change that only affects you if you've used TEST.loadDataFromCsv with only the file parameter passed in to read a CSV file with exactly one entry. See details below.

View TEST.loadDataFromCsv documentationopen in new window

❗️ Breaking Changes

  • Previously, TEST.loadDataFromCsv(file) could be used to read a CSV with exactly one entry. As this is an uncommon use case and support to read all entries in an CSV is a popular request, it made more sense for TEST.loadDataFromCsv to load all entries if dataset parameter is not provided, TEST.loadDataFromCsv(file) will now return all entries as a JSON object array instead. If your tests are failing due to this change, you need to update your test like this:

    // this will no longer work
    var admin = TEST.loadDataFromCsv("admin_user.csv");
    // fix by adding [0] to read the first element from the returned array
    var admin = TEST.loadDataFromCsv("admin_user.csv")[0];

🐞 Fixes

  • Fix bug with processing TEST.loadDataFromCsv(file, options) method signature.
  • Fix bug with handling CSV files with exactly 2 rows and 2 columns.

New Commands:

  • Refresh a page: I.refreshPage
  • Scrolling a page: I.scrollBy, I.scrollTo, I.scrollToTop, I.scrollToBottom
  • ↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← β†’ ← β†’ B A
    Shortcuts to press arrow keys: I.pressUp, I.pressDown, I.pressLeft, I.pressRight

    var orderId = I.grabText("#orderId"); // read the text from the #orderId element on the webpage
    I.goTo("/orders"); // go to your order history page;
