GXtest v4 Licensing

Official Content

Licensing model

GXtest v4 has unit and UI test automation capabilities.

  • Unit and UI testing are included on GeneXus 16 IDE for free to use by a single developer.
  • GXtest Recorder is also open to the public, downloadable from Google Web Store (Google Chrome browser is required)

If you want to collaborate (commit / update test cases to GeneXus Server), or running them in a CI / CD scheme (like Jenkins) you will need to use the licensed version. 

The GXtest license must be authorized on your GeneXus Server.

The following table illustrates which of the main features require a GXtest license. All the features that are labeled as free are free to use by a single developer locally in their GeneXus IDE.
