Native mobile applications power people and businesses. At the touch of a button. So we’ve made it easier to keep yours working the way you - and your users - want them to. Provide a first-class app experience for anyone, anywhere.
But it’s not just our new native mobile capabilities that we think you will love.
In this release, we have made changes that will slash the time it takes to execute web automation, and regular browser updates will no longer cause maintenance headaches.
We’ve also made it easier for global teams to work together; for SAP and Salesforce customers to succeed with automation, and so much more.
So, whether you’re responsible for native mobile or web applications (or anything beyond), use Leapwork to become more efficient, effective, and in control. Success is a mindset. A visual approach helps you get there.
Please note: this release includes some major changes to the database. Before you make the upgrade, please review our upgrade guide and plan accordingly!

Enhanced support for SAP: Be more productive even in complex environments. Work easily with tables and data. Super fast. Super reliable.
Altogether, we are introducing 800+ new items!
We know native mobile apps are important. Really important, in fact.
They enable truck drivers to track deliveries and provide patients with the ability to access prescriptions. They give sales teams an on-the-go way to enter new leads, and allow global consumers to use payment solutions, listen to music, and shop.
For anyone responsible for a native mobile app, our new capabilities are for you.
When you work with mobile apps, you know how important the user experience is. Whether the end users are your fellow employees or your customers, you can now enable the people who really understand what good looks like to apply that knowledge to build, maintain, and scale test automation. For any mobile application.
We have introduced new native mobile blocks and a mobile smart recorder, to make it easier and quicker to automate native mobile tests. No coding required. No difficult, technical interfaces to navigate.
Run your tests on premise or via the Cloud on any combination of device, Operating System, or browser with our HeadSpin integration. Works with iOS and Android devices. Native mobile automation has never been easier.
Available for our Platform and Enterprise customers.
Execution time has been halved. And we have removed the pain of Chromium browser updates. Forever.
We always want to make web automation easier, faster, and more robust. With our new plugins, we have done just that.
In the past, browser updates from Chrome and Edge have meant our customers might need to update their browser across potentially hundreds of machines and agents. That can be time-consuming!
We have added new plugins for Chrome and Edge under the hood, so while you won’t see anything different in the UI, you will certainly feel it. Now, when Chrome or Edge update their browsers, your tests will work just as before. No need to change anything. Faster execution with no interruptions.
Don’t worry, if you upgrade to this release we won’t automatically switch your web tests to this new approach.
The flows you’ve already created will still work. You can choose to make the switch to this new approach at your own speed.
Change flows one-by-one, or use our bulk update feature to make the switch all at once.
When you work in an enterprise environment - with potentially hundreds of users - things can get complicated. With our new APIs, we are making it easier to access the right information at the right time. Get a better overview. Feel equipped to make great decisions.
Our new APIs:
Teams API: now you can specify which Team’s information you want to retrieve via the API
Audit log API: retrieve and process audit logs automatically, for security and compliance reasons
Schedules API: users can access the details of any schedule associated with a Leapwork runlist
With 2022.2, you also now have a more secure way to access the Leapwork API, through an HTTPs protocol.
For us, the name of the game is to simplify things that are normally complicated.
In 2022.2, we have improved our support for SAP by making it much more straightforward to work with data in SAP tables. And when tables and grids consist of hundreds (sometimes thousands!) of rows, this is an important update for our SAP customers.
You can now use Leapwork to capture entire tables, read through the data iteratively, and reuse it with our new SAP building blocks. Simple.
In 2022.2, we have made “under the hood” improvements for our Salesforce customers.
Now, you can use our smart recorder to create tests that will work immediately with the latest version of Salesforce. You don’t need to edit the Leapwork strategy. Things will just work as expected.
Build faster. Less maintenance. More peace of mind.
With our Active Directory (AD) Forest feature, we have made it easier to add users from across your organization, regardless of the domain they work in.
All they need is a trust relationship configured in AD Forest, and they are good to go.
Many of our customers have global teams, based across different continents. This means potentially hundreds of computers all associated with different proxy servers.
With this release, global teams can now work more flexibly by using their own proxy. Simply set configurations on an Agent-by-Agent basis. You can also use a Proxy Auto-Configuration (PAC) file.
