Development Roadmap


This roadmap document outlines the functionality planned for the future releases of the version 6 platform of Rapise. We are responsive to feedback so the contents of each individual release will be subject to change.

Releases will also include lower level enhancements and bug fixes. We do not provide a public list of open bugs or enhancement requests at this time.

Version 6.7 (February 2021)

  • RVL Toolbox: Right side bar for RVL with quick search for snippets, KB articles and global objects/actions.
  • Rapise Launcher extension for Azure DevOps: Run Rapise tests on Azure hosted VMs and report to SpiraTest.
  • Rapise Test Adapter extension for Azure DevOps: Run Rapise tests on Azure hosted VMs and view execution reports in Azure.
  • Test Set attachments: Pass data to RapiseLauncher from SpiraTest via files attached to a test set.
  • REST Editor Enhancements: Use JavaScript functions to populate REST call headers and parameters (i.e. re-use an auth token across calls).
  • Run REST tests via NodeJS: Enhance rapisenode engine to enable execution of tests with REST calls, so that API tests developed in Rapise could be executed on Linux and Mac hosts.

SpiraTest Integration Enhancements

  • Re-run: Set number of re-run attempts for a failing test.

  • Remove unused objects: Option to remove objects that are not used explicitly in RVL or JavaScript modules.

Run Tests on Linux/macOS

  • NodeJS based Mobile execution: Run mobile tests on Non-Windows hosts.
  • NodeJS based RapiseLauncher: Connect to Spira from Non-Windows hosts and execute tests.

UX Enhancements
