Ideas to Improve Ranorex

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

  1. Data binding during runtime for parallel testing using selenium web driver

    At present changing the data connector during runtime depending on the grid node on which the test is currently running is not possible. Ranorex always executes the test on the grid hub endpoint and so, Ranorex can’t identify what node the grid hub is currently choosing for running the test.

    It would be really helpful if Ranoex can Support the execution of the same testsuite parallely on different nodes but with different data source.

  2. Execute TestCase via cmd inclusive the parent steps (e.g. setup of an root smartfolder)

    Execute Testcase by selecting it in the Testsuite, implicitly select and execute the parent steps (e. g. a Setup of an parent smartfolder). If you will execute it, via the command line (/tc:TESTCASE), only the TESTCASE, without the parent steps, will be execute. Finally there is no way to get the same behavior by using the command line.

  3. Conditions Enhancement - extend the options beyond equals and not equals.

    We assign a level to each of our tests and it would be nice to be able to select them using conditions - e.g. if <= test level then run test.
    Having to add rules to cover all the higher level tests is clumsy.

  4. Run Configuration dependent [SETUP] & [TEARDOWN]

    Make [SETUP] & [TEARDOWN] regions configurable - add the possibility of having smart folders and using check-boxes to select specific steps for specific Run Configurations.

  5. Keyboard shortcut to collapse all items

    A shortcut to collapse all entries in "Module Browser", "Projects" and "Test Suite" Trees would be great:

  6. Ability to disable/enable mixed selection of TestCases/SmartForlders and recordings.

    Please add the ability to disable/enable mixed selection of TestCases/SmartForlders and recordings.

    Currently, it's only possible to disable/enable TestCases/SmartFolders and Recordings separately. In other words, one can't select mix of TestCases/SmartFolders and recordings and then from right click menu, disable them all at once. This is only possible with Recordings (code modules). TestCases and Smart Folders must be "disabled" (unchecked) one by one, via their respective checkbox. Thanks in advance!

  8. Easily selectable and out-of-the-box report views

    Currently the reports are very customizable, which is great for companies that need a lot of flexibility. There would be much value however in having "starting point" templates that show how the reports can be customized. Without standard training like this we are left to hack together our own reports the best we can.

    These templates would give out-of-the-box standard ways to generate Summary, Simple, Dashboard or Advanced report views (among others) to get someone that has never customized a report going in the right direction.

  9. Add custom variable to Report File name

    We like to use custom variables, which were generated during testing, an add these value(s) to the Report File name.

    We want to this feature to add serial numbers of our products to the filename.

  10. Integration of Ranorex reports with TM4J (Adaptavist)

    Good afternoon friends ! We, in our company, came up with a great idea - to integrate the reports generated by Ranorex into Jira. In Jira, there is an excellent tool for managing the testing process (TM4J (Adaptavist)), which allows you to create test scripts (step-by-step descriptions) and also receive, save and process the results of autotests developed for these scenarios. Further, with the help of a tool that creates visual visual graphs, we can consolidate and visually see the general statistics of the results of passing automatic tests, for example, in one day! ) This is very cool, really!…

  11. Bring back SmartFolder information in ProgressDialog

    Since upgrading from Ranorex 9.1.2 to 9.2.1 the progress dialog is missing SmartFolder information.
    This is a valuable information that is used to investigate failures since we use extensively Smart Folders in all of our test cases.
    Please bring back this feature ... or at least give us the option to customize it !

  12. Fill the cases attributes (Type, Priority...) in Testrail automatically with Ranorex Studio

    Fill the cases attributes (Type, Priority...) in Testrail automatically with Ranorex Studio.
    These fields would appears and could be fill in Ranorex Studio when the Testrail integration would be done.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Add column "Pass/Fail" to TestSuite.rxtst file

    It will be great to have this additional column in *.rxtst file to keep tracking results from Ranorex UI

  17. pause

    I would need a function, which makes a planned pause during the test run (means, the test run waits for a user input via hotkey or simple GUI) and then continues.
    This is not supposed to be related with working / not working test case, but a planned break.

  18. Should have a validation for Files Compare (csv,excel,word,pdf,image,xml,html,etc.)

    After a generated file, we should be able to compare with a default file to see if the upload, download, generation, report etc. is good.

  20. Elapsed time for steps at the time of execution

    Ranorex was bought in our company by the quality management team for our software products.
    No I'm using it for Application Performance Monitoring.

    With a few lines of C# code I measure the ellapsed time for getting the login page our web-app (with some reference measurements to migrate deviation) --> Service Level Agreements

    It works pretty well, but it would be simplyer if I could get the measurements from ranorex at the time of execution.

    (Parsing the report for the execution time is difficult too, because we have a lot of changes in the test cases at the moment)
