Ideas to Improve Ranorex

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

  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. Report - add seperator

    When some tests becomes to grow, it would be nice to have the possibility to insert into the report a seperator (e.g. line with a title) in order to make the report more readable (e.g. Initialization phase, or change settings, etc).

  9. 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.

  10. Increased application support for code analysis tools, ideally with source code rather than compiled.

    Currently Ranorex only seems to support FxCop for code analysis, which only does the analysis on "compiled object code, not the original source code." Having more than just one option would be nice.

    Ideally being able to use the same tool as the local development team is preferred, which more options would increase the chances of that.

    Example: ReSharper

  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. 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.

  13. Clone more than one data source at once

    When in "Manage Data Sources" there is a "Clone" button right on top of the popup. This button gets enabled when there is exactly one data source selected in the list box below. It would be quite useful if we could select more that one data source at once and click on "Clone" so that multiple data sources are cloned instead of clicking on each data source and then on "Clone" separately.
    This already works with the "Delete" button, so please extend functionality of this popup to make this work.

    Thank you for your input.

    You are correct, this functionality would be handy in some cases and it doesn’t seem logical why it shouldn’t work.

    However, this is an edge case that probably not many users face. We might consider it in our data management update if it proves to be an easy fix.

  14. 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.

  15. Add port configuration to Ranorex Licenser Service

    I need the Ranorex Licenser Service to run on a different port than the default 7266. While it is possible to manually go to the Windows Services, stop the service, display properties for it, type in new port in the Start Parameters field and hit Start... this is often missed after rebooting the Server which runs this service. This causes automated runs to fail until it gets fixed... manually.

    It would be great if a port value could be set in the configuration for the service. It would be really helpful.

    Thank you for your input.

    We have a work package in our backlog that will update the license manager tool. We haven’t decided when we will implement it yet, but I put this requirement to the list for this update.

  16. Find Remote Agents Smartly!!

    The job assignment should wait for the first free agent instead of assigning right away. This would make the queue behave exactly like parallel execution.

    This system has a disadvantage. It assigns in the moment when you execute the command in CMD. At that point, the test has no information about how long the queue on the agents is time wise. It only knows the number of jobs that each agent has. Because, some jobs can be much longer than others, this system cannot prevent the longest running queue to actually get even longer. This can happen because by chance,…

    Thank you for your input.

    We see the possible use cases for this, however, this would require a “central” agent that distributes the tests to the Ranorex Agents. This central agent could be Ranorex Studio, but this would require you to have Ranorex Studio up and running all the time. Even worse, you can’t just turn off the PC while the tests are not correctly distributed to the Agents yet (for example for over-night tests).

    Thus, for a small use case (many, larger test runs on several agents with vastly different run times), it would be necessary to implement a new application that sits between the caller (like Ranorex Studio) and the Ranorex Agents that handles the test distribution.

  18. Upload the report automatically to the created Jira issue

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

  19. Ranorex EXE should return more than just 0 or -1 so that external programs can determine why it failed.

    Standalone EXE files created by Ranorex currently return the same failure value, "-1", regardless of whether it was because a test case failed, or because the program threw an exception. This is done via an inflexible try/catch in TestSuiteRunner.Run.

    In other words:
    - Any test case fails: Returns -1.
    - Program has an unhandled exception: Returns -1.
    - Tests pass and also there are no exceptions: Returns 0.

    This presents a problem for external launcher programs and CI systems. For example, we use Team City.

    In Team City, If there is a flaky test case, I can quickly mute that…
