Dear Testdroiders,

Awesome news: We’ve pushed out a new release today, and with this new version things are about to get a whole lot better and easier for you guys! We’ve done lots of work on back-end to improve the efficiency, configurations and improvements in scalability. Some of these things aren’t really visible to users but you’ll surely notice the difference as more devices are added every week, the UI works faster and accessing devices is yet easier for everyone.


The new version of Testdroid Cloud – 2.9 – has been thoroughly tested during the whole week and our QA just gave us green light to push it out. This version will surely pave the way to your success by improved product features, better reporting and visualized results, more efficient handling of your plans and a faster access to any device supported in Testdroid Cloud.

Let’s take a deeper look!

Calabash Upgrade, Enhancements – and More!

You can now get visualized test cases and test steps with your Calabash test runs. This makes a quick or deep analysis of test results easy and spots out those important steps in your runs. Also, we’ve added Cucumber report view for all Calabash test runs. You can also quickly and easily navigate through your Calabash test steps – and here is the example:

Furthermore, Calabash stack trace is now readable and you’ll have access to all fine-grained details under your device runs (device run view) with more log and data files available:

Appium Improvements and Instant Access to Devices

We constantly upgrade and improve things around Appium framework, and one of the highlights in this release is the API key implementation for better access to devices. Basically, you don’t need user credentials anymore but access can be also gained by using API key in your desired capabilities to push your test from your local machine to our devices. And the same thing applies for uploading your local test results to Testdroid Cloud. Very nice, clean and easy way to run your client-side Appium tests!

The API key can be fetched from your profile (top right-corner) -> My account -> API Key. Then just use it in your desired capabilities as follows:

capabilities.setCapability("testdroid_apiKey", "bd9db158f508e852df05b331950e4740");

Remember! If you use testdroid_apiKey, you don’t need to configure user credential (testdroid_username and testdroid_password in your desired capabilities).

Have fun with the new 2.9 and keep testing!
