🚀 Auto-merge Changesets
TestDeck, our central Test Management solution is out in beta - manage all your tests from a single dashboard. TestDeck captures and analyzes test results from your CI system. It provides granular, test case level insights, and tracks performance and reliability of each test case. Here is an overview of what it offers.
Automatically identify unreliable test cases in the system both reactively and proactively. These results are reported through our dashboard and using APIs and webhooks.
Historical view of a particular test case - how often has the test failed (flaky or not), has the test become stable / unstable. Views by feature branches vs. base branches.
Visibility into whether test stability is degrading or improving for base branches.
Visibility into whether test run times are increasing or decreasing over time.
Automatically rerun the test suite on a schedule (nightly job) to identify flakes proactively.
For more details, read the docs.

Aviator Changesets are groups of PRs that are treated as a single unit of change (merged all together, in an “all or nothing” fashion). Now Aviator can automatically merge all PRs in a Changeset once CI passes. As always, Aviator validates all PRs in the Changeset and ensures that they are merged together. The auto-merge is reset if a new commit is added or if a CI test fails. You can also cancel the auto-merge at any time before the PRs are merged.
