  • You need to see more details about the ticket that is added to the board or backlog page


Step 1: Navigate to the backlog page and press the spacebar or click the preview icon.

Step 2: Once the preview panel appears, navigate between the items and you will instantly see the content of the item on the panel.

Step 3: If you need to view more than just fields, you can hover over the panel and scroll within it to see the description too.

Step 4: In case you need to open the ticket to check comments or dependencies, simply click on the expand icon and the item opens in a separate tab.

Step 6: When you want to close the preview, just press the spacebar again or click on the preview icon.

  • Preview is enabled/disabled separately for backlog page and scrum board.

  • The preview option is not available on the navigation page yet.

Feature: Chrome extension Capture (ex. aqua Test Recorder): Option to use extension outside aqua

Useful when:

  • You need a tool to record videos and annotate screenshots that provides visual proof and steps to reproduce the defects

  • You want to give more context for your developers to fix the defect faster

  • You are looking for a powerful tool that can work with aqua and can also be utilised outside the system


aqua tip: If you haven’t used the extension before, Capture is a helpful tool to record video, automatically capture events, and make your QA visual in other ways. You can get Capture on Chrome Web Store or Github.  


  • The process of starting the execution and recording is simplified. The test execution page doesn’t have the input field anymore: it was moved to the extension.

  • The new version of the extension is compatible with aqua version 22.123 and higher.

  • You need to update the extension to have new capabilities

Type in your browser:

  • chrome://extensions/

  • Find aqua Test recorder extension

  • Click the ‘Remove’ button

  • Go to Chrome Web Store and install Capture


Step 1: Install or update the Capture extension.

Step 2:  Pin it to the toolbar of Chrome extensions to always have quick access to Capture.

Step 3:  Open a test case and start execution. Click the ‘Capture’ icon on the Chrome toolbar.

Step 4: Insert a link to a web app or website you want to test and click the ‘Run a session’ button.

Step 5: The page or web app will open in a separate tab, and you can proceed with testing as before. All data will be automatically passed to aqua.

Step 6: You can add videos to your test execution if you want to demonstrate what exactly was done or show what actions need to be performed to reproduce the defect. Click the ‘Record a video’ button and select what you want to record. You can choose between the entire screen, an app or a chrome tab. 

Step 7: Perform the actions the way you do it during the regular test run. Once you are done, click the ‘Stop’ icon or the ‘Stop sharing’ button.

Step 8: Preview the recorded video. 

Step 8: If you are happy with the recorded video, click the ‘Set to aqua’ button and the video with the steps and additional information will be added automatically to aqua.


  • When clicking on a screenshot option while you are at the test execution tab, it will take a screenshot of the current page. If you want to take a snapshot of a screen or capture the screen area of another page, you can navigate to that page and click the corresponding option on the extension. You will still need to download the image and upload it to aqua.

The screenshot feature will be improved within next iterations. 

Step 9: You can use the extension outside of aqua whenever you need to record a video or take a screenshot.

You can add the media to aqua requirements or defects as files or upload it to any system you use.

Anytime you want to create a video or do a snapshot, just click the ‘Capture’ icon and start recording.

Step 10: Once you finish the recording, just click the ‘Save’ button and the video or screenshot will be saved to your desktop.

Improvement: New design of toast messages

Every release, we do small changes and improvements to make aqua’s UI/UX better. We heard your feedback on toast messages, so we made them smoother. 

From now on, all toast messages will appear at the bottom right corner of the app and stay for 10 seconds before disappearing.The new approach is a less intrusive and more subtle way of displaying the infromation.

It gives you more freedom to interact with the app and prevents frustrating situations where you are interrupted during an important task by a popup. The new implementation raises your attention to an important even but does not distract you from work.

We continue to make aqua beneficial and easy to use. The upcoming releases will bring both new powerful features and user experience improvements. We can’t wait to share them with you.
