ISA² interoperability test bed software 1.8.0

1 year ago

Version 1.8.0 of the ISA² interoperability test bed software, based on the GITB CWA specifications, is now released. This release focuses on providing additional community customisation possibilities through features such as the definition of specific labels for test bed concepts and the optional display of actors. GITB TDL is also enhanced with support for warning-level validation steps and the possibility to display for test steps additional documentation or instructions as rich text.

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:
