Ideas to Improve Ranorex

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

  1. Remote view of licence server status

    We have a limited number of licenses running via a license server.

    It would be useful if there was a way that we could check the license server status remotely via a webservice api or http server.

    At present I need to remote onto the appropriate box then check the licence info and confirming that licences are free before launching a test run.

    We’re happy to announce an early release of a license statistic tool. Please feel free to download the application and to provide us with feedback (pm@ranorex.com).

    Download: https://download.ranorex.com/s/Yqb8b7DHDMc4Xbo

    Note: The download package has been replaced by a new one as there were some files missing in the old package (2018-03-01 3:30 PM, CET.)

  2. Auto-Bound Test Variables

    When creating a Test Variable, it would be awesome if I could choose to turn on an "auto-bind" attribute.

    Currently my process is to create a free-typed module variable, being careful to name it the same name as an existing test suite variable, then go into each test case binding and click "auto-bind" to bind it. If instead test variables could be marked with a new "auto-bind" attribute...it would save lots of time manually re-binding it later. For instance when I copy or move a test case and have to go back and click the auto-bind again...and again...and again.

    Along…

    Thank you for your input.

    We are currently implementing something similar that will probably be released with Ranorex 9.3.

    We will provide an option to automatically auto-bind every unbound variable to a global parameter with the same name.

    Currently, we haven’t planned a way of automatically binding parameters and variables that don’t have the same name. However, we might consider this if you are interested and if we find a nice way to put this functionality into the UI without worsening the user experience too much.

  3. Upgrade Ranorex Studio to Support C# 7/.NET Standard/.NET Core

    Currently Ranorex only supports up to C# 5.0 (per feedback from support) and does not seem to be able to install an NuGet packages that use .NET Standard or .NET Core. Using VIsual Studio 2017 or ReSharper for code editing usually causes issues as they use newer C# language features.

    Thank you for your input.

    Currently, we are trying to change out our old code-gen tool for a new one. This would enable Ranorex to always support the newest C# versions. However, our code-gen is so deeply rooted into Ranorex Studio that this is more of a long-term project for us. We are working on it, but we won’t be there yet within the next few months.

  4. Allow same folder name within same test suite.

    If I want to make a template that would be "fixed" I can not because I have to change its description at all times.

    Thank you for your input.

    We are actually currently already developing this. In the future, it will be possible to have test cases and Smart Folders with the same name.

  5. Note unbound values and bound (but at different level) values

    Studio Feature: Currently there are notes (and warnings) if some variable is not bound to a value -

    What i miss is having a note (not necessarily a warning) when values are not bound to a variable (e.g. because that SmartFolder was copied, and then some recordings were deleted, thereby no longer sourcing from those values).

    (Additionally,) A feature to "see through" the different levels of SmartFolders and TestCases would be great, to see what/if a given value sources to in other levels. If this was implemented, it would automatically solve the above Feature Request, because if all levels are…

    Thank you for the input.

    With Ranorex 9.2, we will release an overhauled data management experience, and your issues should be handled with the changes we have planned for this.

    Thank you for your input.

    We are currently already implementing support for the new, Chromium-based Edge browser. This new feature will be shipped with Ranorex 9.3.

  7. Please add a function to create multiple variables collectively.

    Please add a function to create new variables and to set their values at once.
    This feature will reduce time and efforts to create variables.

    Thank you for the input.

    With Ranorex 9.2 we will release a slightly overhauled Data Binding experience, and auto-generating variables will be among these changes.
