  • Is this going to be updated in order to accommodate for the new appian releases. Like being able to select an item from the hierarchyBrowserFieldColumns or validate instructional text?

  • Hi there. Apologies for the late response. My team is now responsible for supporting FitNesseForAppian and I have worked on it extensively this quarter.

    As for the first part of your question, yes we do accomodate new Appian releases. We release a FitNesseForAppian version alongside every Appian release with support for all the new features!

    For the second part of your question, we don't have an explicit method for selecting an item from the hierarchyBrowserFieldColumns but our methods are pretty general so a similar method might work. We can investigate that for you. We have several validation methods. You can CTRL +  F for "validation" in the CheatSheet within the tool and see if any of them work for you. "verifyFieldContainsValidationMessage" might work for your needs.

    Let us know if you have any more questions and we can try to help you out
