Kreya 1.14 - What's New


Kreya 1.14 brings you a lot of new features. Starting with running a directory as a collection, an Insomnia importer, automatic import of system environment variables and opening items in the file manager. The CLI now has the ability to invoke multiple collections with a single call and generate a JUnit test report. Scripting has been improved and trace messages can be filtered.

Run directory as collection Pro / Enterprise

In Kreya 1.13 we introduced collections, which allow you to invoke certain operations together. With Kreya 1.14 it's now also possible to run a whole directory as a collection, so you don't have to add all operations to a collection manually. Just open a directory and hit run in the "Run as collection" tab to run all operations in that directory.

Insomnia importer

Next to the Postman importer, we also added an Insomnia importer. You can import your Insomnia collection in the menu at the Kreya > Import... window.

System environment variables for CI/CD systems or secrets

Kreya automatically imports system environment variables prefixed with KREYA_ENV_ into the active Kreya environment. The prefix is removed and the variable can be used normally with {{ env.VARIABLE }}. System environment variables are especially useful in CI/CD systems or for secrets.

Open items in file manager

Directories, operations and collections can now be opened in your system's file manager. This gives you easy access to your Kreya project files.

Kreya stores everything in files which allows you to easily sync with a version control system. A detailed description can be found in our blog post Bring your own storage.

Invoke multiple collections in CLI Pro / Enterprise

Collections can be invoked with the CLI, and with Kreya 1.14 it's possible to invoke multiple collections with a single call.

Junit reporter

Invoking operations and collections in the CLI now has an option to generate a JUnit report. Simply add the --test-report-junit flag with a file name to your CLI call.

kreyac collection invoke -p {path-to-project} {path-to-collections} --test-report-junit junit-report.xml

Trace messages filter

Trace messages can now be filtered, allowing you to quickly view certain types of trace messages, such as your script trace messages.

Improve scripting Pro / Enterprise

Scripting now has environment access, allowing you to read all the properties of the active environment, and a sleep function was added.

kreya.trace('Active environment: ' +;

// sleep for 1s

kreya.trace('Some secrets: ' +;
