Ideas to Improve Ranorex

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

  1. Set preferred TestSuite in Project (from Ranorex 8.2)

    It would be nice to have an option to set a preferred test suite.
    Normally it took the testsuite from the startup project. But now you can have multiple test suites in one project.

    - Project
    -- ProjectTestSuite
    -- NewProjectTestSuite (Set this one as prefered test suite)

    This would be an added value for the testsuite icon button in the top menu bar.

  2. Use Repository Items as variables

    In my current project there are a lot of recordings which do the same thing:

    1. Validate that an item exist
    2. Click on the center of said item

    If it were possible to pass Repository Items to Recordings, I could probably cut amount of existing recordings in half by reusing the only one recording with the required item as a variable.

  4. Support for Dyalog APL UI elements

    Currently only some of the elements on APL Dyalog windows are recognized such as Text fields , RawText fields, however there is no support for Grids, Elements name are dynamically generated each time, meaning no testability around it

  5. Add iteration count for whole test sequence

    It would be great with an iteration count that comprises the entire test sequence, so that we will be able to run a sequence x number of times.

  6. Provide a selenium infrastructure like "selenium-grid-extras"

    It would be really helpful if you can implement on each ranorex installation a Selenium Grid Extra Konfiguration to configure the wedriver central. This would also add a possibility to recorde the whole testcase and provide a video at the end. This could be helpful to verify that all steps were passed successfully for customers which shouldn_'t get a full qualified report.

  10. Ability to Abort Test Suite Execution.

    On a condition, or through user code, allow the Test suite to be aborted, similar to the way that a recording module or smart folder can be through report.failure();, or throw new RanorexException("INVALID URL");.

  11. Allow bind variables in SQL connector

    It would be great if an sql connector could contain not only a static query string like "Select * from myTable" but also "Select * from myTable where myColumn=$variableFromRanorex".
    In other words: at the moment I have hardcoded sql statements which i can replace in usercode like
    <code>DataCache dc = DataSources.Get("<DataCache name>");
    ((SqlDataConnector)dc.Connector).Query = "<Query>";
    dc.Load();</code> (this is from ranorex forum)

    It would be much more readable and transparent if I could bind a Ranorex variable to the sql statement.

  12. Display errors/warnings if the Ranorex file has locked by any other tools

    When any Ranorex file (e.g. Recording.cs) has opened and locked by any other tool, Ranorex could not save the file modified, but the project build finished with no errors/warnings.
    This cause that the automation module has not updated.

    So it is usable if Ranorex throws errors/warnings if the Ranorex file has locked by any other tools.

  14. Set status of test case in TestRail as "Blocked" when status is "Blocked" in Ranorex

    At the moment a test case that has the status "Blocked" in Ranorex (report) gets the status "Untested" in TestRail when automatically posting test results to TestRail.

    However, setting the status in TestRail to "Blocked" would make more sense, since the Ranorex run intentionally doesn't execute those test cases and sets them to "Blocked".
    Example: a condition is set on a test case to only be executed when a parameter is true. If it's not, the test case doesn't get executed but is still mentioned in the report as blocked.

  15. Snapshot Editor

    Provide a suite of tools for editing Snapshots.

    Very often users are dealing with sensitive data and cannot post a snapshot of a troublesome element to the forums.

    I'd like to see a means to find and remove specific data in an ad hoc manner and a way to remove a set of standard data in some sort of config file.

  17. 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.

    Best Regards,
    The Ranorex Product Management Team

  18. Scheduled/Programmable Test Execution

    Allow the user to either schedule, or better yet programmatically chose when to execute tests. (for example, every night at 8 pm, or when a change has been made to a GIT code repo.)
    Obviously this could be expanded to contain many different scenarios, but the one that would most likely benefit the greatest majority of people would be a simple calendar style, allowing repeated, scheduled test execution.

  19. 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.
