Testlab – Egyptian Strike release

Meliora Team | 19 April, 2020

Today, we are announcing Meliora Testlab – Egyptian Strike. Improved radiators, integration with JetBrains YouTrack and more. Read on.

Radiator for automated tests

A new type of radiator has been added to report out the details of your test automation efforts. The radiator shows you the current situation for selected automated test runs (or a milestone) and also includes a history of your automated tests.

The radiator support three kinds of views in the current testing results and two different views to the time taken to execute the tests. Results are visualized by test category and calculated statistics are provided for the runs.

YouTrack integration

With the Egyptian Strike release, you have an option to integrate your Testlab projects to JetBrains YouTrack for issue management. The integration works similarly to the MantisBT integration and allows you to work with YouTrack as a master repository for your issues.

You can read more about the integration in the technical documentation here.


Testing feedback radiator enhancements

The existing Testing feedback radiator has been added with

  • an option to choose the type of graph presented: either
    • “Test case status” which shows the execution status of the test cases for each day, or
    • “Cumulative test results” which shows the total number of tests run (including the testing results) in time, and
  • calculated percentage of the passes tests in total.

And in addition

  • Keyboard navigation in the test case and requirement tree should now be easier with lazy-loading logic added,
  • REST API allows you to add automated typed tests and
  • reporting engine now uses Google Noto font to support more native languages in the world.


Thanking you for all your feedback,

Meliora team

When thinking about not working and going to a strike, one often thinks this as a privilege of the modern age. Also, it is a common misconception that the people working with ancient Egyptian monuments were slaves. Combine these things together and be surprised to learn that the first-ever known strike took place in ancient Egypt in 1152 BC.

This was during the reign of Ramses the third at Deir el-Medina. The workers were working on the royal necropolis and felt underpaid. Halting the construction, the strike was actually ended when the workers actually got a raise and finished the job.
