ISA² interoperability test bed software 1.10.0

1 year ago

Version 1.10.0 of the ISA² interoperability test bed software, based on the GITB CWA specifications, is now released. This release provides community administrators with further flexibility on community customisation and its tailoring for their conformance testing strategy. This is achieved by means of new features on custom property management, advanced automation options through triggers, and the fine-tuning of self-registration requirements and user permissions. The management of test suites is also enhanced by enabling enhanced and bulk test suite uploads, and allowing administrators to edit online the documentation and metadata of test suites and test cases. These changes are complemented by the latest improvements in the GITB Test Description Language, allowing flexibility in the loading of documentation and artefact resources, customisation of display labels, and a new logging step to add details to test sessions’ output.

This new version is online in the ISA² interoperability test bed service but is also available for you to setup as a standalone instance. If a standalone instance best matches your needs, the following supporting resources are available:

If you are updating from a previous version, please follow the test bed's update guide.
