Chrome 99 compatibility


As part of our pre-release testing, we are happy to confirm that Chrome 99 is compatible with Provar version 2.6.3. We have included ChromeDriver 99 in the 2.6.3 distribution.

Who does this impact?

Provar customers who are currently using or would like to upgrade to Chrome 99.

Why is this important?

Ensuring that ChromeDriver 99 is compatible with Provar version 2.6.3 eliminates the risk of incompatibility issues which can prevent Provar from working as expected.

How can I use this feature?

If you would like to upgrade to Chrome 99 we recommend that you upgrade to Provar version 2.6.3, which will use ChromeDriver 99 out of the box.

In general, Provar will automatically attempt to download the correct ChromeDriver if it detects a driver exception. If your organization’s security protocols block the automatic download, you can override the ChromeDriver manually.

To downgrade or revert the ChromeDriver you can refer to this support article that explains how to use a ChromeDriver that is different from the one provided by default in your Provar installation.

What are the browser and driver combinations that you recommend for Provar 2.6.3?

Please refer to the Browser and Driver Recommendations support article for a comprehensive guide.

Packaged ChromeDriver for 2.6.3

Provar version 2.6.3 is packaged with ChromeDriver 99.

New and better performing CPQ Components


We have added support for new and better performing CPQ components, enabling you to take advantage of these improvements without losing the testing capabilities.

  • Support Edit Quote screen in CPQ – We have added support for the Edit Quote screen in CPQ so that you can map and execute all the fields and buttons on this screen.
  • Support Product Selection screen in CPQ – We have added support for the Product Selection screen in CPQ so that you can  map and execute all the fields and buttons on this screen.
  • Support Configure Products screen in CPQ – We have added support for the Configure Product screen in CPQ so that you can map and execute all the fields and buttons on this screen.
  • Support Choose Price Book screen in CPQ – We have added support for the Choose Price Book screen so that you can map and execute all the fields and buttons on this screen.

Seamless ALM Integration


We’ve increased the support for ALM Integration. As a Provar windows user, you can  work with ALM integration without having to move out of the Provar tool.

Who does this impact?

Provar users who use or may want to use ALM integration.

Why is this important?

There is no dependency on a 32 bit machine and Provar-ALM integration will work as expected with a 64 bit windows installer. With these changes the ALM functionality will work as it is on a 64 bit Provar application.

How can I use this feature?

With these changes the ALM functionality will work as it is on a 64 bit Provar application.  You can use this feature in the same way as before, the only difference is now there will not be any drop-down on the ALM connect dialog to select the ALM installation folder.

Single installer for Mac OS


We have consolidated the Provar Mac installers to a single Mac OS installer.

Who does this impact?

All Provar customers who are using Mac OS.

Why is this important?

All Provar Mac users can now install from a single installer rather than from different installers for each Mac OS version.

How can I use this feature?

Single installer for any supported Mac OS is available at Provar Success Portal
