Glitch with test cases table in Firefox

The test case # column would lose alignment with long parameter names on Firefox (pairwise defect).

Prevent email scanners from activating email validation link

Added a step to the new user email validation process to prevent early activation by aggressive email monitoring systems that access the link.



Replace “Back to Plans” button in project dialog with a link in the title bar

This is both an improved user experience (there are no longer 2 primary buttons competing for your attention) and addresses a bug where the button goes away with a certain sequence of user actions.

Escaped HTML shown in read-only plan dialog



Mouse over tooltips could stick around after closing modal dialogs which invoked them



Plan dialog regression with pairwise roots

Fixed a pairwise defect in the new feature of showing the project the plan belongs to when opening the “Your Test Plans” dialog for the first time. If you happen to be in a read-only sample plan, the “Your Sample Test Plans” project wouldn’t be found in the list of your projects, and the dialog would hang.

Import failure warning and details when importing into an existing plan

The same useful feedback from an unsuccessful import wasn’t available when importing into an existing plan, but now it is.


May 9, 2018


There’s now a hint for the useful CTRL + Enter keyboard shortcut of Define Inputs bulk edit



Regression in copying sample plans



Defect editing parameter name with special character sequence in bulk edit

This was an interesting 3-way defect involving a certain type of data, “(?)” in the name, a certain operation, updates, and a certain mode of the operation, bulk edit.

For the curious, “(?)” proved problematic as it interfered with a regular expression being used to handle the edit request.

Create a new project workflow

After creating a new project, you’re now brought to the share dialog as the next step, rather than the “Your plans” dialog.


May 7, 2018


Open plan dialog in the currently active project

When working on a test plan in a project, the “Your plans” dialog now opens to that project by default, rather than to “Your plans”.


April 26, 2018


Sample import file updated to latest format



Import file explanation dialog formatting was glitched


April 25, 2018


Number of interactions tooltip

The # of interactions tooltip shows “null” when there are no “any valid values” (purple italics) in the generated test. It’s rare to have none, but quite possible. A classic of the pairwise defect genre.



Warning when navigating away from bulk edit with unsaved changes

This warning had stopped working as a regression.

Minor formatting issue in parameter length warning dialog

A parameter length warning dialog that appears when parameters are created with eight or more values.

The first issue was that the word ‘parameters’ was always pluralized, even if there was only one parameter listed.

The second issue was that we were showing the actual array (as in “[OS, Browser]”) instead of a list of the array’s elements in the dialog.



Wording of the “largest” parameters tip in the plan scorecard for mixed-strength tests

Help link doesn’t work in Internet Explorer

Odd little bug… step 1 of auto-scripts disappears when clicking “add” while it’s blank


April 9, 2018


Store and use the last calculated strength used

This prevents Hexawise from continually loading a test combination strength you aren’t interested in. Before Hexawise used last computed strength rather than last viewed/used.



Deleting the currently open plan now properly redirects you out of the plan

Are there any defects that aren’t pairwise? Oh, so very few.


April 3, 2018


Issue when reverting to a prior version of a plan, or when importing a plan, only when value expansions expand the parameter values with the same name in different parameters

A true classic of a pair-wise defect. Put this one in the dictionary as a canonical example of the term.

Editing project name of current plan’s project

Editing the name of the project that owns that plan you’re in from the Edit Project dialog would make the share link on the plan’s page stale.
