Usability Enhancements

This section lists usability enhancements that have been made in Silk Test 20.0.

Easily select mobile applications for testing

You can now easily select mobile applications from the UI, including the following:
  • Mobile applications that are already installed on the selected mobile device.
  • Mobile applications that are available in Mobile Center.
  • Mobile applications from your network. Silk Test will install the selected application on the selected mobile device.

Performance Improvement - Classic Agent Disabled By Default

To improve the overall Silk Test performance, the Classic Agent is now disabled by default when installing Silk Test Classic.

If you have no legacy tests that are using the Classic Agent, or you are unsure about whether you have such legacy tests, Micro Focus recommends leaving the Classic Agent disabled. However, if required, you can enable the Classic Agent during the setup or through the Silk Test UI.

Encrypting passwords in the UI

Silk Test Classic now supports encrypting passwords in the UI.

Support for <datalist> elements in web applications

Silk Test Classic now supports testing <datalist> elements in web applications.
