TestProject end of life: Your questions answered 

TestProject will end of life (EOL) on March 31, 2023. 

Since acquiring TestProject in August 2019, Tricentis has made significant investments into the platform and has been pleased to maintain its use free of charge as established by the TestProject founders nearly eight years ago. However, the extensive work required to maintain and update the platform has helped drive the company’s decision to streamline its product offerings and focus resources on Tricentis Testim, a SaaS-based and AI-powered test automation tool for custom web apps. 

When and how does this news impact TestProject users? Beginning November 16, 2022, the creation of new TestProject accounts will be disabled and on March 31, 2023, all previously existing TestProject accounts will be deactivated and access to the platform will be revoked. 

What steps should TestProject users take with their test cases? All test cases must be transitioned to an alternative platform before the March 31, 2023, TestProject EOL using one of the following options: 

  1. Export into code (Java, C#, Python)
  2. Export into a TestProject YAML format
  3. Export as a Test Document (Excel)
  4. Connect to GitHub using GitHub integration and sync all tests to repositories (will be synced as YAMLs as well)

For users who have integrated Tricentis qTest and TestProject, the TestProject Test Cases and execution reports will no longer be accessible for editing, viewing or executing after March 31, 2023. qTest test data will be maintained after TestProject has been sunset, including Test Cases, Test Runs, Test Logs, and Test Step Logs. 

Does Tricentis offer an alternative testing solution? Tricentis offers a free Community edition of Testim as well as paid versions of the product with more robust, powerful testing capabilities. Now through December 30, 2022, the company is offering a special 25% discount on Tricentis Testim for one year* to help ease the transition. Learn more about the offer and take advantage of our free, 14-day trial here. 

While the TestProject journey is coming to an end, its key features and technology are also available in the more robust test automation products Tricentis Tosca and Tricentis Testim, including enhanced mobile capabilities coming soon. From test automation and test management to performance testing and more, Tricentis is invested in continuous testing innovation and remains committed to serving you and the extended testing community.

    Wow! This is really quick end of support time line. Seeing as how many organizations have invested a great deal of time an energy into building automation on this platform it makes it very hard to trust Tricentis going forward. Can you provide any guidance on what the effort level is to migrate to one of the other offerings mentioned. Can this be automated or is this a manual effort. Also since you have essentially hung many organizations out to dry on this, have you thought about maybe releasing the Test Project server and agent code on Git Hub as well as providing some details on how existing tests can be run and maintained locally so all your users do not loose all their investment.

    Why don’t you guys make it a paid subscription? My company is willing to pay.

    Such a shame, TestProject answerd all my need and none of the Tricentis tools cover them on mobile application testing.

    It was so beautiful to find a free solution, and I was pretty sure that will not last for ever, I need to rethink all my workflow now.

    I’ve invested my time here and almost completed automation of two of my projects. This is very sad to know. I wish you could make it open source and let the community maintain it.

    Just checked the suggested tools in your above blog, and they are NOT perfect as the TestProject. Please re-consider your decision.

    We kind of saw this coming. I also really liked to work with TestProject.
    Anyway, I tried a couple of tools and have to say that https://www.repeato.app seems like a good alternative. They also support no-code creation of tests, integrate with all the major CI/CD pipelines out there (github actions, bitrise, …) and they have a free plan.

    Very unimpressed by this – will do my best to avoid Tricentis in the future

    I agree with the other comments, it was better to leave TestProject opensource so that the community continues to support this great tool which is not comparable with Testim. The other solution would have been to make TestProject paid.
    Finally, it is very shameful to offer us to migrate to testim without providing a way to “copy” our TestProject tests into Testim. The 25% discount does not cover the time spent having to redo everything…

    One of the best free recording based automation testing tools, it is saved my effort and time during element inspection for mobile application, I have just taken advantage from here but did not create dependency on it from the very beginning day, because it is a free cloud based service and sometimes I was not able to use it due to service under maintenance, then decided to use it only for element inspection and it helps me lot.

    I would like to use testproject rather than tricentis products.
    Please consider the testproject paid product.
    All users want and wait for this method.
    We are also prepared to pay for it.

    Please, may my wish come true.

    I’ve been a fan of TestProject for a long time.
    It has the best historical result graphs.
    I’m not a fan of the Open Source path as I don’t know how anyone gets paid for their time to support the project.
    I’d think a paid subscription service suggestion as the better alternative.
