Ideas to Improve Ranorex

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

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Action Data Table/ Test Case Data Table

    Can we develop data table at the action level and test case level which will keep all the runtime data till that Test case is alive

  6. Setting for turning off directory from the xcopy deployment

    We would like to have a setting for turning off the directory "Runtime\x64\VCRedist" from the xcopy deployment independently from the platform to avoid an issue with starting Autodesk Vault applications.

  8. Mercurial Integration

    You have integration with other source controls, and have numerous requests to have Mercurial integration. However, you still have not added this to your short list of version control systems. We would love to have support for this so we can leverage the Ranorex Magic Merger tool.

    Please consider???

  9. Add a direct ClearText method to the Input tag in the Ranorex API

    Add a direct clear text method to all the Input tag elements. This actually helps us to clear the input fields without hassle.

  11. Dallas Dinos

    Its 5/16/2019 at 2:42 central time USA. This is the only place that Ranorex related web site works. All of your sites, like user guide give Error establishing a database connection message.

    Please take a look. Great software, otherwise.

  14. Global setting for Report Directory

    Currently when running tests each test suite must have its report directory changed manually. In addition, there is no way to change the report directory of tests that are not run from the test suite view.
    It would be great to have a global setting for all reports to be outputted to in a solution regardless of the test view or test suite being tested.

  15. Ranorex as a web site testing tool

    Ranorex can read the UI elements and knows paths of the elements from the root. So why not enhance that further to make it like a web site testing tool, and provide a friendly feedback about the status of each element as we scroll down the tree using Ranorex spy, indicating us with color whether the link is available or broken. I would like to see Ranorex as that one great tool for all of our needs.

  16. Ranorex Service to behave like an instrumented App (Mobile)

    Ranorex Service to behave like an instrumented App (Mobile), so that if it crashed we can use openApp().

    Currently on iOS, if the app crashes only manual intervention can restore the service, so nightly testing just keeps failing (if the app under test or the service crash, in both case the service is down and the phone is not connected to ranorex, as an endpoint)

  17. Add crash logs to Ranorex Service (Mobile devices)

    Add crash logs to Ranorex Service (Mobile devices).

    Currently when there is a crash on the device, without a trace in the app logs (App under Test), it is not possible to know if the AUT crashed or the Ranorex Service crashed. It is just visible that both are not on the front anymore, as they were before the crash.

  18. Allow to set the Error behaviour for a module

    Often it is convenient to stop the test execution when a certain failure occurs, to be able to analyze the state of the device/system under test.
    Currently it is possible to Stop the test execution on any failure, but it would be more useful if it was possible to be more specific about the stop condition. A solution could be to specify the Error behaviour of a module.

  19. Auto Scan feature in Ranorex Spy

    It would be useful if Ranorex Spy had the ability to scan a screen in the application under test and automatically create objects in the repository for all the items found on the screen, based on whether the use chooses to include/exclude the objects (so a selection option, may be by checkbox). See attached file for details.
