  3. Executing Appium commands in MobileLabs

    Would be really helpful to run the Appium commands on the MobileLabs portal itself rather than running the code every time. It helps to verify the things quickly.

  5. Having a API endpoint for the Location feature

    Hello,

    Currently, when accessing a phone in the Mobile Cabinet, you can set the location of that phone using the "Location" button. It would be great to have an API endpoint that provides the same functionality.

    Use Case:
    We test various websites and URL's as well as do some location testing.The current functionality is great and straight forward to use. When running automation, it would be great if we could call a location in code via a endpoint that allows us the same functionality as if we did it within the Gigafox Web Viewer. This way, we can take that…

  6. Add In A Application History Section / Page

    Just like the Device History page, it would be really useful to have a History of the Applications, to help debug who is uploading what applications when by what means (i.e API vs WEB) and when do they get marked for deletion.

    A use case here, is that recently there are have been a few issues with applications not being deleted and it looks like an artifact was uploaded twice by mobile labs.

  7. Removing Outdated / Expired Profiles / Certificates

    Request: The ability to easily remove out dated or expired Provision Profiles / Certificates.

    The use case here:

    A certificate was uploaded that was tied to 59 profiles. Around 43 of the 59 profiles are expired and now when I am viewing the iOS Management section of the Web UI, all I see are expired profiles with no way to clean those up.

  8. Revoke Status Access By Role

    Hello,

    As an admin on multiple boxes, I'd like the ability to also restrict the ability for users to see specific statuses.

    Use case here, I have a lot of upper management that access the box occasionally and them being able to view the "Offline" and "Disabled" statuses, creates some confusion. I only want them to see "Available" and "In Use" and avoid any unnecessary clutter and noise that comes with the other statuses.

  9. [Developer Usability] REST API does not reflect an underlining rule

    STEPS:

    Retain the device with User A,
    Make a call to launch the application with User B
    ---> API will return success but never launch the application

    The major feedback from this, is that you have a rule: you cannot interact with a phone unless you are the one who has it retained but their API does not reflect that. It will return a success that the message was sent, which is super misleading, instead it should have some error like "cant launch application on device because retained by " __"

    Though it's now known, it's just a "gotcha" and…

  10. Capability to specify the type of screen and orientation for the foldable phones

    Foldable phones are planned to be the next advancement in mobile devices (Samsung, Microsoft, apple has applied for patents, Motorola…). The feature is not about screen rotation, the foldable phones have at least 2 screens. Samsung Fold has 3 screens. Right now mobile labs cart have static placement of mobile phones, which means the phones cannot be folded, unfolded. Like you have built screen rotation, there has to be a feature for the tester to specify which screen and orientation is required on the foldable phone.

  11. Add/Remove devices to .dcbridgerc via command line.

    Customer would like for there to be a way to add and removed devices from deviceBridge using command line. An example of this would be commands such as 'dcb adddevice $serialnumber' and 'dcb removedevice $serialnumber', where these commands would either add or remove the specified device from the .dcbridgerc file.

  13. Device battery monitoring feature

    For example; if a battery is acting differently and is starting to bloat, the cart administrator would receive an alert warning through GigaFox and could take action to go remove the bloated device from the cart. This would be especially good for teams that don’t look at their devices inside the cart on a regular or frequent basis.

    We’re looking at building out a general alerts and monitoring system; this particular feature will become part of that. Specifically detecting “bloat” may be a little bit tricky because we haven’t found any consistently clear indicators as to when a battery starts to tip over the edge, but just being able to have the cart monitor various metrics more easily will still help.

  14. Install Application on Devices via UI should be Parallel

    Installing a build to multiple phones should be done in parallel instead of synchronously, since one phone's installation does not require another phone's installation to pass

  17. Have default rendering quality be configurable

    Customer wants the universal default rendering for devices to start at 100% instead of 50%. They do not want to have to do it manually. They would like this to be something they can make configurable, where it may be set to 50% by default but you can alter it to be 100% and it will affect all devices and not just the one.
