Release 7.2 (February 2024)

This version of DAI includes the following enhancements and bug fixes:

Significant changes to the Test Results page

Filtering on Test Results page

  • Test results have new filtering options. You can now filter results on the Test Results page by Test case, Test configuration, Test configuration tag, Execution environment, and SUT. These options are in addition to the previous filter options: ID, Model, Suite, Status, and State. The SUT column is a new addition to the test results page. These enhancements will provide even more granularity to your test result analysis.

Sorting on the Test Results page

  • You can now sort test results by Execution environment and SUT.

Exporting test results

  • You can now export test results as CSV (comma-separated value) files from the Test Results page. In addition, you can export results based on the filters that you apply on the Test Results page. This will enable you to export test results based on your specific needs.

Rename of columns on Test Result page

  • The column name Test config/Live run replaces Run mode.

  • The column name Test case/Exploratory run replaces Type.

Merge of Columns

  • The columns Status & ID are now combined on the Test Results page. However, you can still search on both the run status and test results ID.

Passing multiple parameters from EPF to DAI in Models

You can now use multiple output parameters (excluding Lists and Property Lists) to capture and pass data generated from Snippet runs into Actions in your models. This enhancement removes the need to use global parameters, passing parameters as strings and parsing them, or storing parameters in files.

Support for Schedule Test Runs with Cron Syntax

You can now schedule test configurations to run in DAI using Cron syntax. You can find more information cron syntax here.

Support of Tunneling with Sauce Labs Connections

DAI now supports Sauce Labs tunnel for both Sauce Labs device and browser and browser connections. This will enable you to access your private Sauce Labs resources.

DAI Run Agent

You can now install the DAI Run Agent as a Microsoft Windows service. This allows the Run Agent to continue running even when users log off the machine.

The DAI Run Agent now supports MacOS Sonoma.

New Eggplant AI Bug Hunter optimised for large datasets

This new AI Bug Hunter reduces memory consumption enabling it to process large volumes of test results through a configuration change on the DAI server.

UI/UX Improvements

Test Configuration Set Up Flow

The test configuration set up process is ehanched with new tabs to make it easier for you to create test configurations.

Documentation Enhancements

  • You can now choose the to see older versions of the DAI documentation, in addition to the current version using a version selector at the top of the documentation pages. The current version is active by default.
  • Japanese version of the documentation is now available.

Bug Fixes

Release 7.1 (October 2023)

This version of DAI includes the following enhancements and bug fixes:


As a measure to improve stability, DAI now provides an environment variable you can set for test configuration runs to specify the amount of time Eggplant Functional (EPF) runs before restarting. This variable takes effect after the current step is finished and before moving to the next. The default value is 30 minutes. This variable setting only applies to runs with the DAI Run Agent. During live runs, EPF continuously runs without restarting. See Eggplant Functional Stop and Restart Settings for Test Configuration Runs for details.

Test Case Dashboard

DAI now provides a dashboard that aggregates the results of all your test cases. You can filter the data you see by date range, models, or suites. This aggregation capability will help you understand the current state as well as the evolution of your testing effort in a single view.

Automatic Retry for Failed Tests

DAI now provides the option to automatically rerun failed and errored test steps as these occur to ensure your tests complete successfully within the allocated testing timeframe. This new feature includes the options to rerun test steps within your test configuration, specify the number of times you want failed or errored tests to rerun, and the interval between reruns.

“Viewer” (Read-Only) User Role

DAI now provides a read-only user role. This role is for users, such as managers, who need access to view test results in DAI, but do not need to create or update test artifacts.

Single Sign-On (SSO) Capability

DAI now supports SSO capability for Eggplant users whose companies use Microsoft Entra ID (formerly "Azure" Active Directory) configured over the OpenID Connect (OIDC) or Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) protocols to control user access in a unified way. DAI also now provides SSO capability for SAML with ADFS. This is in addition to the existing support for ADFS with OIDC. If you’re interested in learning more, please reach out to your Account Manager who can assist.

This version of DAI includes the following enhancements and bug fixes:

Keycloak Security Update 21.1.2 – DAI now includes Keycloak version 21.1.2, which resolves a cross-scripting (XSS) security vulnerability.

Library Upgrades for Improved Security – DAI received python and cryptography library upgrades for improved security.

Support for Reruns of the DAI 7.0 Upgrade – DAI now gracefully handles a rerun of the 7.0 upgrade. This fix resolves an issue where the DAI Server would not start or allow user logins after the upgrade.

MinIO Migration Timeout Increased - The timeout for a MinIO migration is now 3 hours. Previously, the migration timeout was 1 hour.

Release 7.0 (July 2023)

MinIO deployment upgrade

An upgrade has been made to the latest stable release of MinIO. Upgrading an existing installation of DAI 6.5 to DAI 7.0 will bring about a migration of MinIO assets(mainly suites and screenshots) which may take up to an hour.

Agent redesigned

The agent has been redesigned into separate dedicated agents for design and run. There are two types of agents, namely DAI Design Agent for uploading suites to DAI and executing tests in the designer, and DAI Run Agent for executing test configuration runs. Both agents are required.

[Windows Only] From version 7.0.0-0 onwards, if you have an older agent installed i.e. eggplantAIagent, it will be removed during the installation of either the newer DAI Design Agent or the newer DAI Run Agent.

Execution Environment List

On the SUTs page, you no longer need to type the Execution Environment name that will be used by a SUT. You can now pick your Execution Environment from a list of Execution Environments that can also be filtered. You may also leave the Execution Environment field blank except for connections to Android and iOS devices.

SUT connection configuration

Made it easier for you to avoid misconfiguring your connections. If RDP or VNC are the primary connections, then only Webdriver will be available as secondary connection and vice versa. There can only be one connection if Citrix, Sauce Labs Browser, Sauce Labs Browser, Android Device or iOS Device is selected.

Email notification by test result type

Choose to receive email notification based on the type of test result; Pass, Fail, Error, Cancelled. By default all options are selected on creation of a test configuration.

Single Sign-On (ADFS with OIDC)

Single Sign-On functionality for DAI will enable our users who use Active Directory configured over the OIDC protocol to control their users' access in a unified way. If you’re interested in learning more, please reach out to your Account Manager who can assist.

Source code management integration - GIT

Support for GIT Integration has been added. This makes it possible for test runs to use scripts from GIT repositories. Does not support SVN.

Natively connect to Android and iOS devices

This option is available in the SUT connection type list. Your device will connect through the Eggplant Gateway.

Filtering on test result page

Filtering by suite added in test result page.

Security updates

A number of security enhancements have been made to DAI 7.0, including the latest stable release of MinIO.

Known Issues

When upgrading from DAI 6.5 you may need to manually end a process to allow the install to proceed, see Upgrading from DAI 6.5 for details.

Release 6.5

Test Case result trend

DAI provides a result trend of the last ten test runs in the test case view. This is an overview of test runs that have completed successfully or failed. The result trend will enable you to understand how well your test runs are performing. The trend also shows when the test was run and its duration.

Support for Citrix

Added native support for Citrix Desktop connections

Support for Sauce Lab Devices

Added native support for Sauce Labs Browser and Sauce Labs Real Devices (private and Public) in DAI.

Automatic Cleanup of DAI server logs

DAI can be set to automatically delete DAI server log files.

Release 6.4

Test Results by Email

You can now receive notification of your test results by email. The results will show whether a test has been successful or not. Email notification will allow you to take prompt action and save you from having to constantly log into DAI to check the status of your test configuration runs.

Calendar View for Scheduling Test runs

The new calendar provides you with full visibility of your test configuration schedules. The new calendar will facilitate optimisation of your execution environments according to availability of the environments and licenses.

Script-Based Test Cases

Test cases with a sequence of scripts are now available in this release. You can quickly and easily create test cases with your scripts in a similar way to model based testing.

Migration of scripts referenced in Test Configurations

All script-based steps that were referenced from within Test Configurations will be migrated to Test Cases and these will be automatically included within the original Test Configuration. New script-based tests can also be created within Test Cases. Test Configurations will hold your script-based test cases.

The above changes align DAI with how you create Models and Test Configurations for Models.

The test results for migrated script test cases will be displayed in Test Results with the relevant suite name and test configuration (type). However, the suite name and type will be missing links to their suite and test configuration respectively. You will need to manually navigate to the relevant suite or test configuration if needed.

In addition, in the test results logs, the name of the scripts that were executed will not be available. This is because test results are not associated to test steps. However, once these test cases are run again, the details of the test steps will be available in the new test results.

Visibility of Suite Contents

You can view the contents of your suites (files, images and resources) that are stored in DAI. You will also have details of the suites such as version and time when it was last updated. With this information, you can easily determine whether you are using the correct suite version.

SMTP Settings

SMTP settings are now configurable within DAI.


A number of security updates have been made, including upgrades to Python (v3.11.3), Keycloak (v19.0.3) and the latest stable releases of PostgreSQL, Nginx, RabbitMQ and MinIO.


Previous versions of DAI shipped with a pre-configured Third Party Client client:dai:agent:integration. This has now been removed to enhance security. Users can create their own Third Party Client if needed instead.

Release 6.3

Ability to edit test cases

You are now able to edit existing test cases. You can add and remove test case steps anywhere in your test case.

Test results page displays environment details

The execution environment against which your test ran is now shown in the test results page. If there are problems with the environment, the details of the environment can be more easily identified thereby facilitating troubleshooting.

Cancel test runs

Live test runs can now be canceled more easily. Navigate to the test results page, find the test run that is in progress and that you wish to cancel and cancel it at a click of a button.

Cloning of test configuration

Duplication of your test configuration is now possible. This will allow you to quickly build new test configurations.

Group Migration

An access group with the same name as the user used to get automatically created for every user up until DAI version 6.3. We now allow sharing access to models directly with users and will no longer create those user-aligned access groups. With that design decision in mind, during the 6.3 upgrade process:

  • Groups not associated with any models get removed.
  • True user-aligned groups with only their original user as a member get removed.
  • Permissions of the removed true user-aligned groups get reassigned to their respective users.

Additionally, please note that:

  • If a user-aligned group has been renamed, it will remain in the system unchanged.
  • If there are multiple users in a user-aligned group, we prepend group_ to the name.
  • If the original user is no longer in the group or the system, but the group is and still has models associated with it, the group will remain unchanged.

Release 6.2.1 (28 July 2022)

Return Test Results to CI/CD Pipeline

DAI CI/CD integration can now return the results of tests triggered as part of your build pipeline, so that these can be viewed directly from the UI of your chosen build platform.

Visit the downloads page to begin your upgrade.

Release 6.2 (7 July 2022)

Support Parameters in Test Configuration

You are now able to pass parameters in your scheduled Test Configurations thereby allowing you to reuse your Test Configurations for different testing combinations.

Test Results Date Filter

Test results can now be filtered by date. By using the date filter you can view your test results from a particular date, until a particular date or within a date range. This will make it easier for you to review your test results.

Model Preview

The Model Preview has been further enhanced to provide you with more information about the model whilst it is being previewed. This will make it easier and quicker for you to understand the model that you are previewing.

Test Configuration Execution Logs

Test configuration step execution logs are now available. This will provide you with the ability to see the details of each step during a test execution and will help you troubleshoot should your test run fail.

Windows Installer Logs

The Windows installer runs the first time start-up sequence of the DAI Windows services to verify the installation. Logs of the installation status are streamed in the installer window. Upon completion, a summary report including the logs will indicate whether your installation and start-up of DAI was successful.

Delete all Results from a Single Test Config

With a single click you are now able to delete all test results that correspond to a single Test Config run. All the associated artefacts including screenshots will be deleted. This will allow you to remove irrelevant or obsolete test results quickly.

Execution Environments

Access to Execution Environments has been simplified and is no longer restricted according to which models you can access.

Visibility of SUT Passwords

SUT passwords are no longer visible to ensure confidentiality and security.

Side Menu and Sub-menu

The sub-menu items expand and collapse based on your input and not automatically as was previously the case. You will now be able to navigate through the menu options with greater ease.

Third Party Client Management for API Access

It is now easier to create API access, download Access Keys, regenerate and delete API access. See how here

RCI User Journey View to Guide Test Case Creation

You are able to view the user journey details.

Release 6.1 (25 April 2022)


Improved Test Cases

Test cases are now easier to build, debug, and run so you can see results more quickly:

  • Build a test case directly from a model. Simply click on the parts of the model that you want to include. Built-in validation helps you to update missing or incorrect data.

Test Case builder

  • Run the test case against your model in debug mode to quickly find and resolve any outstanding issues.
  • View and analyze pass and fail results for each test case from a single screen.

Go to Designer > Test Cases and click Add New + to start using the new Test Case Builder. To save time, you can also duplicate and edit an existing test case rather than starting from scratch.

Test Case Migration

To enable test case improvements, all existing test cases are migrated to a new database schema and are validated as part of the upgrade to DAI 6.1. During migration, the following characters are replaced by underscores (_) in all test case names: " \ ; : { }.

In some cases, test cases may fail validation, in which case they will not start. To continue to use these test cases, open them in the Test Case Builder and follow the on-screen text to resolve any errors.

Improved Test Results

You can now go straight to a linked test case from the Test Results view. From the same view, you can also quickly remove test cases that you no longer need.

Common Navigation

The Eggplant DAI navigation is now available on every page of the application to make it as easy as possible to switch between tasks.

Simplified Model Editing

The toolbar in the Model workspace has been simplified for ease of use, and a top menu gives you shortcuts from the model you’re working on to other test resources.

Test Case builder

Other improvements

  • The application version is now displayed on the System > Status page.
  • The process for importing user journeys from Real Customer Insights has been simplified. Go to Designer > User Journeys to see a full list of paths that are used to enhance your exploratory testing. From here, you can also delete individual journeys that are no longer required.
  • State and action variables are now renamed to parameters for consistency with Eggplant Functional.


Due to an upgrade of the identity and access management (IAM) system, the refresh token method for API authentication is no longer permitted.

  • Resolves an issue which showed only the Selenium screenshot in the console when a test with VNC and Selenium connections failed.
  • Fixes an issue with the agent not running the test after recovering from a closed websocket connection.
  • Fixes an issue with the agent where it tried to read the SSL certificates, even when the SSL Connection checkbox wasn't ticked.

Known Issues

  • An error message appears when you try to edit a snippet on a connected agent and if that suite doesn't exist in the agent's suite location (either because it's been deleted, or the connected agent never had it).
  • The Eggplant DAI Agent may crash when using it on a Mac machine with external monitors connected. As a workaround, use the agent on the Mac, without moving the agent window to the external monitor.
  • Previously, the iterations for a model could be set to zero to run a model indefinitely. This behavior has been removed as part of our performance and scalability improvements.

Release 4.1 (12 May 2020)


  • Adds the capability to upload suites to Eggplant DAI and to associate them with models for use in test execution. This feature also adds support in the following areas:
    • Execution Environment: Provides an option to upload and download suites via the AI Agent so that you can manage scripts and image assets associated with your models. If an execution environment has previously been used with a specific suite, only differences need to be uploaded, which helps speed up the execution.
    • Test Execution: If a model has a suite attached, a test configuration can be executed with an execution environment without any previous access to that suite.
    • Suites tab: View all suites that are available (via uploading suites in AI Agent) in your instance of Eggplant DAI.
    • Models tab: Associate suites to a model or modify an existing suite association.
  • Updates the Eggplant AI API:
    • Adds endpoints to associate a suite with a model.
    • Improves the Composer endpoint to allow you to:
      • Delete an asset from Eggplant DAI and any associated model asset from the AI API.
      • Get models and any associated suites.
    • Run and Abort endpoints now allow you to:
      • Cancel the suite download on an Agent.
      • Specify an asset version while downloading it.

UI Improvements

  • The Eggplant DAI UI now reports errors when a SUT Connection fails.
  • Links to Test Results in the Dashboard are now filtered by model.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes a performance issue that caused delays with starting the execution of test cases.
  • Fixes an issue where some test configurations with failed statuses reported as passed.
  • Fixes an issue with previous test cases not clearing in a test configuration after the model selection is changed.
  • Fixes an issue with the Agent Command window appearing in debug mode.
  • Resolves an issue with SUT connection failing Test Case steps.
  • Improves error handling for large volumes of scheduled test configurations.
  • Fixes an issue with agent that showed tests that weren't executing in In Progress state.
  • Resolves the issue with the agent not running test configurations despite being set to Run mode.
  • Test configurations no longer get stuck in the Canceling state.

Known Issues

  • After upgrading to Eggplant DAI, it is recommended to:
    • Wait for some time after the installation of Eggplant DAI to launch it in your browser, to ensure the database and services are up and running.
    • Perform a hard refresh on your browser.
  • Do not enable the Eggplant Functional GUI check box from the agent when using the Run mode, if the Eggplant DAI GUI is running several tests on an Execution Environment (e.g., a scheduled run in Eggplant DAI > Runner tab) as continuous opening and closing of SUT connections may cause problems with Eggplant Functional.
  • If a suite is uploaded without helper suites and modified later to refer to Helper suites, then you should follow this sequence while uploading the suite:
    • Delete the main suite that has a dependency on the helper suite.
    • Add the helper suite and then upload the main suite back.

Release 4.0.1 (17 February 2020)


  • Runner enhancements:
    • Adds a new in-progress icon if the status of the test configuration is in progress.
    • Adds the option to view detailed results of passed, failed, and in-progress test runs along with a donut chart representing the total number of passed, failed, and incomplete runs.
  • The Eggplant DAI Installer includes an option that allows Eggplant to collect usage statistics from the users. You can disable this option by clearing the Report usage statistics checkbox (only available if the Run Advanced Install Configuration checkbox is enabled).
  • You can now download server logs with a single click in Eggplant DAI.

Bug fixes

  • Test configurations now resume after suspending or restarting a machine.
  • The ping messages on the Agent dialog are displayed as before.

Known Issues

  • Selecting the Run cleanup after abort option in the Settings dialog doesn't initiate the cleanup script if you abort your test run.
  • If you have test configurations running simultaneously with SUTs that are not tied to a specific Execution Environment (agent), you may get an Unable to make a connection to the Agent error. Therefore, it is recommended to separate your test configurations by at least one minute, or use SUTs tied to specific Execution Environments.

Release 4.0 (20 December 2019)

This is the first release of Eggplant DAI.


  • Schedule and track test executions through the Runner tab.
  • Create and execute Test Configurations that combine directed test cases with exploratory testing.
  • Limit exploratory testing by duration, number of iterations, or a coverage target so that tests run until one of these conditions is met.
  • Configure and reserve systems under test (SUTs) for testing.

Known Issues

  • SUT connections don't disconnect after task execution. This can cause problems for users with RDP configurations. To work around this issue, either manually disconnect from the Connection List before the next test run, or add a disconnect snippet to your model.
  • The agent isn't receiving ping messages from the server.
