PeopleSoft Test Framework now records with Google Chrome! As of PeopleTools 8.59.07, Google Chrome replaces Internet Explorer 11 as the PTF recorder. This is great news considering Internet Explorer 11 retires from most Windows operating systems on June 15th, 2022. We took the new recorder for a test drive and have some findings to share with you. Check it out on our YouTube channel.

The biggest changes seem to be the replacement of the "always-on-top" recorder with a side window and a right-click pop-up menu.
Are you ready for June 15th? Details about the new PTF recorder are available in My Oracle Support document 2834568.1. At this time, Oracle plans to backport the Chrome recorder to 8.58.18. The document also shares details about potentially recording with the Edge browser in a future PeopleTools release.
What are customers saying? If your site disables Chrome extension installation, then you may experience challenges with the new Chrome recorder. It appears to self-install and run when launching the PTF recorder. You may find limited details about the Chrome extension issue in MOS doc 2648652.1.
With Event Mapping, Drop Zones, and other customization isolation solutions, PTF is more important than ever! Since we no longer customize directly, compare reports don't identify potential impacts. PTF regression tests are how modern PeopleSoft developers locate isolated customizations issues. Are you ready to learn more? Check out our live and recorded PTF courses online!
