  • v22.4 Release Notes
    • Update Chromedriver to v107
    • Add support for Appian 22.4

  • Is it possible to have a link to the version for Appian 22.2 ?

  • Can anyone advise on how to correctly import the Automated Testing app?

    Our Appian Cloud environment has Appian Version 22.3.

    I simply tried "Import" with "Automated Testing - 22.3.zip" with no customization file (I don't see any provided).

    The inspection produced no results but there were Import Errors. I published the Data Store, changing the Data Source to jdbc/Appian (Tomcat), I tried importing again and this is the result:

  • Hello, I trying using the TestExample and this is the result:

    Test system terminated with exception [fitnesse.testsystems.TestExecutionException: java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: The Security Manager is deprecated and will be removed in a future release]

    Can you advise on how to go on with testing? Thank you
