Ideas to Improve Ranorex

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us at Ranorex Uservoice.

  1. Please add support for Perforce souce control

    Since Ranorex does not support Perforce source control it is very hard to merge the .rxrep and .rxtst files when multiple people are developing in parallel.

  2. Make it possible to extend an existing repository, similar to sub-classing

    We're testing an application which has a few variations with a series of elements that are common to all variants. Ideally we should be able to have one core repository with all common elements and "child repositories" that inherit from the core for each variant. This way modifications in a core repository would propagate to all child repositories and we could even have elements in child repositories that are found within containers defined at the parent/common level. Presently, we have to either include one same repository in test suites for each variant and have all variations' UI elements included in…

  3. Avoid TestRail Sync - Manual Mapping of Tests

    Due to a recent bug that messed up my TestRail tests and my workflow I would love to get rid off the 2way sync between TestRail and Ranorex.

    When I create tests I do this in TestRail...with a good documentation...good steps and so on...so as perfect as possible.

    Then I just want to add a test in ranorex, right click on it and "Set TestRail ID...".
    From that time, the test is mapped to test testrail test without any synchronisation....just an easy mapping.

    Benefits:
    - a sync error doesnt mess up the most important thing about my tests (the project…

  4. enable the video recording via code in Ranorex API

    I would like to enable the video recording via code in Ranorex API.
    This recording feature is really game changer and it is really shame that we cannot use it from Ranorex API. Ranorex API even define enums, but cannot be set Ranorex Documentation
    TestReport.VideoRecordingMode Enumeration
    Namespaces ► Ranorex.Core.Reporting ► TestReport ► TestReport.VideoRecordingMode

    Workaround to use the command line argument within "Program.cs" dose not allowed to use it in .dll.

  5. Have option to ignore case when comparing UI text vs a database variable

    I have a scenario where I need to compare text that is in a table on my page vs a value returned from a data driven loop. If the text on the UI is cased differently than my db value, it fails. I had to write code to convert the db variable to match the casing to do the compare. It seems very simple to have check to say "ignore case" and do the compare as all lowercase conversions.

  6. Ranorex recorder does not identifies Xpaths having relational operators in Object Repository

    Many objects in our object repository contain relational operators like following-sibling, preceding-sibling, ancestor, parent etc., for example as shown below:

    //b[@innertext='abc']/ancestor::tr/td[2]
    //a[@innertext='xyz']/parent::td/following-sibling::td
    //select[@id='abc123']/parent::td/preceding-sibling::td/label


    Such objects can be highlighted using Spy without any issues, but not picked up in the recordings.

    The recorder is creating duplicate objects for such elements with Xpaths like below:

    body/div[2]/div/div[1]/div/div/?/?/table/tbody/tr[2]/td[@innertext~'^ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ ']

  7. Allow data-binding of option labels in a select list

    Currently, the set value method for a selection list only allows setting the TagValue so if the HTML looks like this:
    <option value="552">ABA</option> a human user would know to click on "ABA" and doesn't care about the value. However, in our test, we have to have this:
    Set value Tag Value 552
    We would like to be able to do something like
    Set Value Text ABA.
    or something like that.

  8. Add support for custom grid elements in Ellie Mae application

    At this time, the grid elements in the Ellie Mae application are only accessible via the GDI plugin on a non-Windows 10 machines. Adding direct WPF plugin support for these custom grid elements will greatly improve object recognition and automation in the Ellie Mae application as these grid elements are used widely throughout.

  9. Search with Multiple Keywords in Group Module Browser.

    We are working on a project with large number of Group Modules (200+) and this number keeps on increasing. So, it is a hectic job to search group modules with single keyword as the search will result in large number of group modules with the same keyword in its name. Searching group modules with multiple keywords like "keyword1" and "keyword2" will make searching of Group Modules very easy.

    Thank you for your input.

    We will talk about it, however, we beliebe that module browser view and project view are not the perfect solution altogether. It is likely that we will do a major overhaul for these two (where this problem would be addressed, of course) before we will tackle some small feature like this on its own. However, we don’t have a time frame on this yet.

  10. Upload the report automatically to the created Jira issue

    Since version 9.1.0, I started to use Jira integration, I use automatically issue handling.

    I'd like to see an option to upload the report to the created jira issue.

  11. Allow linkage into Atlassian Jira, not just for bug submission

    We create and track requirements in Jira. We need a way to link a requirement issue to a Ranorex test to show coverage.

    Thank you for your input.

    We always look for ways to make our Jira integration better. We will evaluate if and how such a way to link Ranorex tests with requirements would be possible.

  12. Update the Report Custom Template automatically with new Releases

    The ability to create Custom Templates for Reports is great, but at each new release we need to integrate the customized versions with the new versions, otherwise we do not benefit from new features like the video button, or Jira integration buttons.
    This creates a lot of overhead, as we have to delve into the Reports and figure out what changed. With Reports being as completely customizable as they are, it is of course impossible to update them automatically in every case - how about creating a "CustomTemplate1a" where you try to merge the customization into the new Report -…

  13. Please add an option to map the Ranorex automation result to the custom status on the Test Rail

    The automation test results are defaulting to the system 'Test Status' on TestRail.

    (e.g)Ranorex - Test Rail (System name)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Successful - Passed (passed)
    Failed - Failed (failed)
    Blocked - Untested (untested)

    As shown in the attached image we have some custom test statuses on TestRail (e.g Automation Pass, Automation Fail) instead of the System status we want use our custom test status in Test Rail for the Ranorex automation results
    Please consider adding this as a feature in Ranorex to map the automation test results to a custom test status on TestRail?

  14. Add a way to disable the check for data files that have been updated externally

    Each file is being "touched" externally during each build, I assume by our Antivirus software, causing every single data file to prompt to reload.
    Since corporate IT has locked down the settings so there is no way to exclude our Ranorex directory it would be nice to have a setting that would stop the Studio from checking if the files have been updated.
    Similar to the option that allows you to disable the check for non-data files being updated externally.

  15. Could .NET Framework be updated from 4.7.2 to 4.8 in RanorexStudio?

    I'm using Visual Studio .NET Framework 4.8 and need to integrate with the RanorexStudio using .NET Framework but 4.8 version isn't available in Ranorex yet.

    How to download and install the .NET Framework 4.8 in Ranorex Studio?

  16. Automatic creation of a Data Source using Variable Data

    It would save so much time, effort and speed up the creation of automated scripts, if we didn't have to manually create a Data Source for a recording module, but instead Ranorex Studio could automatically create a selected Data Source (eg: simple, excel, SQL, etc), using the variable Name (as the column name) and Default Value (as the input value). See attached file for details.

    Thank you for your input.

    This feature is actually already implemented and will be released with Ranorex 9.2.

    If you join our Beta Program you can already try out this feature now, otherwise, you will have to wait until October.

  17. Duplicating a recording module inside of the same project instead of having to create a new one and copy/paste the steps into it.

    Going to save a lot of time instead of copying a test suite to run on a different platform/Environment.

  18. Ranorex Spy: XPath Autocomplete

    Often times I happen to use XPath as my only tool to definex path for concrete elements. This occurs mostly due to false indentification or duplicate elements which get predifined as an example only with index, which leads to non-unique elements in differents scenarios. This would be a huge time/nerve saver for us working manually with XPath in Ranorex Spy.

  19. Custom fields for Jira

    One of the key features we were looking forward to with Ranorex 9 was the Jira plugin that allows us to integrate our tests with Jira. Unfortunately it is currently not possible to fill certain custom fields like dropdown lists automatically.
    This is somewhat vexing especially when you have a bunch of those as required fields.

    I would like to see a functionality that allows me to add custom fields to Jira.

    Thank you for your input.

    We are constantly searching for ways to improve our Jira integration, especially since it’s so new. We will keep that in mind, and since our old (unofficial) Jira integration was able to handle custom fields, this would be a logical next step for this feature.

  20. Open PDF in Ranorex

    I was tryin to test my app, where i receive a PDF-file with E-Mail. the Idee was to login in RxBrowser and Open PDF to check if everything is OK. This is not supported in RxBrowser. it will be very nice, when i don't need any other tools as Appium to do this. So i can do that in One flow.

    Thank you for your input.

    Currently, we don’t have any updates planned to the RxBrowser, because we see the shift of interest towards using WebDriver endpoints also on mobile devices. I can’t tell if this direction (also within Ranorex) will change, but currently the RxBrowser doesn’t get any more support than possible Bugfixes.
