Our developers have been working hard to fix bugs within our software products and create exciting features like the new LegiTest recipes feature which allows you to build tests in a few seconds that would have taken hours before. Click the link below for full release notes which includes all fixes, as well as new and updated features.
COMMON TESTING RECIPES FOR DATA USING LEGITEST
In a recent webinar, Pragmatic Works CEO, Brian Knight, talked about common recipes for success with data testing in production and development using our new LegiTest recipes feature. We created these recipes in LegiTest to give you the ability to build tests in a few seconds that would have taken hours before. Data testing allows you to build trust in your data and reports.
QUICKLY IMPORT AND EXPORT DATA FROM ANY WEB RESTFUL API SOURCE
This demo looks at a fun application for REST, using the site Yelp. Perhaps you’re looking for new consumer facing customers or maybe you just want to craft a great list of restaurants for your co-workers for a company party or maybe just for you and your family. This quick walkthrough of configuring your REST component will show you just how easy it is.
USING TASK FACTORY'S REST SOURCE WITH GOOGLE SHEETS
Here, we take a look at using the REST Source inside of Task Factory to connect to a tool that can be used for customer lists, tables, and more; Google Sheets.
EASILY BUILD TESTS FOR SSRS USING LEGITEST
LegiTest can serve the entire SQL stack, from SQL Server to SSIS, SSAS, SSRS and more! In this demo, I’ll show you how easy it is to build a test using the SSRS Report Execution Wizard.
USING THE LEGITEST TEST BUILDER
In this demo, we'll compare data between two environments. When you look at data coming from your dev server to your QA server, or your QA server to your production server, for instance, you want to ensure that as data moves from one to the other that it’s accurate. With LegiTest, it’s quick and easy to build out a solution.
