  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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~'^ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ ']

  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. 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.

  6. 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 -…

  7. 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.

  8. Remove scrolling wheel interaction on recording actions

    When scrolling in a recording its possible to scroll through action types. For example, changing a mouse recorded action from a click to a doubleclick simply by scrolling in the wrong place.

  9. 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.

    Thank you for the input.

    We think this is an excellent idea to improve our Jira plugin even further. In the next days we will investigate how this could be implemented and if there are any non-obvious issues.

    We will keep you updated.

    The Ranorex Product Management Team

  10. Ranorex Spy: Undo/Redo Changes

    Whether you missclicked or did remove property in XPath tree on purpose, you always wanna go back in time or redo your changes so you can test various definitions on the go. As long as Spy window is open you should have the option of undoing or redoing your changes.

  11. Conditional execution at the test step level...

    Would be very useful if there was a way to set one or more steps in a recording to run or be skipped over if previous step (be it a validation or another action) failed or passed.

    This would essentially be a very basic if-then-else at the step level within a single recording where the subsequent step's execution is dependent on the result of a previous step.

    Please see attached for a specific example where this would be beneficial but really this could be used all throughout different scenarios.

    Example1: execute validation step if previous step passed but skip if…

  12. View step #'s on the report

    I would like to be able to view the step #'s in the report.

    As a user
    I want to be able to view corresponding step numbers on the report after testing has finished.
    So that I can troubleshoot more easily and note which steps often throw warnings.

  13. Customize Reports (Include,Exclude elements)

    It would be nice to can customize reports in a way of adding or deleting elements.
    1) Include/Exclude Data Bindings Information
    2) Include/Exclude Global Parameters
    3) Include/Exclude Recording modules (Code modules) (For example leave only name of TestCases,SmartFolders)
    4) Include/Exclude Counter for Warnings (only errors) (Warning scare customers)
    5) Include/Exclude Blocked folders, which are did't match IF conditions.
    Thanks!)

  14. 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.

  15. Handle system pop-ups and system applications on mobile devices

    App Automation: Ranorex should be able to handle system pop-ups and system applications on mobile devices in the future.
    This both on Android and iOS

    For example, HP-LeanFT can do this.

  17. More options when running remote tests

    It would be nice to tell the Remote PC, "Run from here", "Run this step" and, "Run to here".

    As a user
    I want to be able to run tests to and from certain points.
    So that when automation fails in the middle of the test I don't have to go in there and clean things up manually.

  18. More granularity while running Remote tests

    While running remote tests, I cannot always see the remote computer, it would be nice to be able to see what step the remote PC is on in the Remote window of Ranorex Studio.

    As a user
    I want to be able to view the progress of the remote tests down to the step being executed.
    So that I can have a better idea of what part of the test is being executed and when it will be finished.

  19. Test sequence integrate different projects

    Currently if I build a test sequence it will only accept testsuites from the current project. In our organisation we need to check multiple projects on a monthly basis and the benefit of a testsequence for all projects will significantly reduce the execution time .

    More specifically this is what I'm looking for.

    Say i have a solution which imports two different projects, say project A and project B.
    Say the main project for the solution is called project C.

    I want to build a test sequence in project C which can also run test-suites from project A and project…
