Easily import your Gherkin suite into Eggplant AI with our new, auto-generating accelerator. It analyzes your Gherkin features and generates a corresponding Eggplant AI model, and will link the execution elements as snippets in the new AI model.
Eggplant Functional 18.1
A huge release that delivers significant advances in our vision, Eggplant Functional 18.1 can automatically identify key UI elements, save them as images, and then automatically generate the necessary snippets that allows an Eggplant AI model to interact with them. In a matter of minutes after sitting down with Autoscan and Autosnippet generation, you’ll have the critical components to develop a successful Eggplant AI model or modular workflows. See them in action, and get all the details in our blog.
Real User Monitoring 1.7 — Performance Trends
You'll notice something amazingly different the next time you open up Performance Trends. We significantly improved its capabilities with usability enhancements (such as color-coded anomaly bands) and four key business KPIs: Conversions, Revenue, Bounces, and Active Sessions. Just like the Speed element, you can see this information over time and with the powerful expected range calculations. But since the report now shows the performance of all KPIs instead of only Speed, we’ve renamed it to KPI Performance. You can find it in the same place in the report listing in the portal.
