Integration with Third-party Systems
DTP natively supports integration requirements and defect tracking systems, such as Jira and VersionOne.
These integrations are currently in beta.
You can associate your DTP projects with projects in Jira, which enables you to create new issues in Jira directly from the Violations Explorer and Test Explorer views.
Integrating Parasoft DTP with VersionOne provides several capabilities:
VersionOne items created from DTP include build and authorship information, as well as links back to the test or violation in DTP.
DTP includes also an API for processing the test associations and sending the data to VersionOne, which enables you to automate this process.
The API for syncing VersionOne test cases with DTP is not currently supported for reverse proxy environments.
Improved DTP Enterprise Pack Deployment Process
Integration with Parasoft Multi-Language Pack
Parasoft Multi-Language Pack is a collection of extensions that enable you to integrate your third-party code analysis tools with Parasoft DTP. Multi-Language Pack supports the following third-party analysis tools:
Multi-Language Pack replaces functionality delivered by the Parasoft Custom Analyzer suite of tools. Contact your Parasoft representative for download and licensing information.
Test Explorer Updates
We made several improvements to the Test Explorer view.
View Tests Sorted by Test Duration
You can now add the Test Duration column to the Test Explorer view table, which enables you to sort tests by test execution time.
View Tests Sorted by Environment
The Test Explorer view now allows you to view tests according to the environment specified by the
Test parameters (if applicable) now appear in the Test Explorer Details tab.
We've added a new option to the LDAP configuration interface called "ancestor groups" to improve the configuration process when a nested group contains both users and other groups. See Configuring LDAP for details.
The UI for previewing user and group imports will now only show one entry per login/name. Previously, the UI would show multiple users with the same login or multiple groups with the same name, even if only one user or group would be used during the import process. LDAP server behavior can vary widely across implementations, so we are unable to determine which user or group is selected across multiple previews or imports if the login/name is not unique.
Environments - Top 5 Table Widget
This new widget enables you to view tests aggregated by execution environment, such as operating system, architecture, compiler, browser, etc. See Test Widgets > Environments - Top 5 Table for additional information.
End of Life for Project Center
The Project Center module has reached the end-of-life (EOL) phase and has been removed from this version of DTP. If you are upgrading from a version of DTP that includes Project Center, the Project Center module will not be supported.
Additionally, the legacy assets shipped with previous versions of DTP, which includes 9.x widgets, widgets, and dashboards, are also EOL. If you deployed the contents of the LegacyAssets.zip folder to your DTP environment and upgrade to version 5.4.2, those artifacts will no longer function. You should consider upgrading your code analysis and test execution tools to the latest version to leverage the full functionality of Parasoft DTP.
Policy Center is Deprecated
The Policy Center module shipped with DTP Enterprise Pack, as well as all Policy Center Practice artifacts, is now deprecated and will reach its end of life in a future release. Policy Center is now disabled by default and must be re-enabled if you want to continue using it. See Integration with DTP Enterprise Pack.
