SmartBear Announces OpenTelemetry, API Management and Test Management Enhancements
November 02, 2023

SmartBear released three product enhancements that bolster visibility across the software development lifecycle. These product updates include:

- Aspecto’s OpenTelemetry-native distributed tracing for error monitoring in BugSnag

- SmartBear’s own developer portal for APIs for consumers to access SwaggerHub Portal

- Zephyr Squad Cloud, the test management solution with core test planning and execution tools inside of Jira.

“We continue to put our customers at the center of our strategies and deliver on their needs by expanding our product portfolio through innovative enhancements to our popular solutions used by millions of developers, testers, and software engineers worldwide,” said Dan Faulkner, Chief Product Officer at SmartBear.

- OpenTelemetry and Real User Monitoring (RUM): With the acquisition of Aspecto earlier this year, SmartBear has integrated its distributed tracing functionality into its flagship production offering, BugSnag, to create a streamlined workflow and deeper actionable insights for developer observability. BugSnag provides solutions for error monitoring, application stability management, real user monitoring (RUM), and now distributed tracing.

- Comprehensive API Management: Since the launch in August of SwaggerHub Portal, an offering to customize consumer-facing documentation that drives the adoption of APIs, the company has utilized it to create its own developer portal. This allows consumers to easily find and integrate with SmartBear APIs, automating the setup process of SmartBear products with clear documentation and helpful resources.

Developers can easily visualize API data in a single place and quickly evaluate functionality before investing valuable time in API integration.

Additionally, SmartBear added Stoplight’s API strengths, including governance, mocking, and no-code editing to its industry-leading API design, documentation, and enterprise readiness capabilities to create the most comprehensive API development platform in the industry.

- Cloud-based Test Management: The new Zephyr Squad Cloud experience is a faster, more performant, and user-friendly test management solution with various new features and enhancements that streamline the testing process, including a test case library, n-level folder structure for test cycles, reordering of test executions, enhanced test steps editing with wiki editor support, bulk execution of test cases, enriched test cycle details, and enhanced reporting for test execution results.
