      This feature already exists, you just need to invoke auto-completion using the "Ctrl+Space" key combination.

        Dear users,

        I need your help to clarify this feature request, please!

        Floating licenses should already be freed automatically when a user is idle or the machine gets locked (since Ranorex 6.0). The default idle time is 5 minutes.
        In other words, if a user is idle for 5 minutes or locks their computer, the license is already released and free to take for another user.

        In order to make this work, you need to have the latest Ranorex License Manager running (at least >= 6.0).

        Can you please provide feedback if the automatic release works for you? Thank you!

        Best Regards,
        Alex

          Thanks for your input. By reading through the comments we see here two requests:

          1) Install the Agent with admin user and execute the Agent as a normal user
          2) Install and execute the Agent as a normal user

          We totally understand the first request but need your input on the second request. You will need an admin to install the agent (port, ...). If this is done, the admin user is not needed anymore because once the Agent is installed, it will always be there (running as admin) until you uninstall it. No need to give another user admin rights.

          Could you please provide us more input here?

          Thanks

            Regarding admin rights:
            Please help me to understand your root problem. Is it that you don't have admin rights?

            If it would be possible to run agents without admin rights, you still need to open the port on the machine which requires admin rights. How would you handle this?

            Can you give me please some more thoughts on this? Thanks

              I’m not sure what you are referring to. All of these browsers are supported by Ranorex Studio, no matter whether they need an extension/addon to provide automation support or not.

              (Note: For Firefox an extension is needed to enable automation; Edge does not need an extension.)

                Thank you Dominick for adding this idea. To better understand your underlying problem, could you please tell us why you need this leading numbers in the folder names?

                  Currently we are investigating all possible use cases for this idea.
                  It would help us a lot if you could comment your project setup and how you are adding Ranorex to it. Thx a lot.

                  Best regards

                  Ranorex provides the option to copy all necessary DLLs to the output directory (Settings -> General -> Copy runtime to output). Like this, you don't have to add Ranorex libs manually.
                  Wouldn't this help you in your situation?

                    Hello,

                    I am afraid I don't understand your idea. With the keystroke optimization, we focused on simple keys that will most likely not break the recording. Can you please provide more examples of keys and triggered action? Thank you.

                      Hello Jon,

                      In the report, you can click "Save as" in the context menu in order to download the report file and store it on the local machine. Does this help?

                      Thank you

                        When passing through login credentials I recommend to use a simple data source as it allows to mask your data: https://www.ranorex.com/help/latest/data-connectors/simple-data-table

                        This way your password is masked in the report. Keep in mind that the password is saved plaintext in the .rxtst file.

                        Best regards

                          I am afraid I don't understand the original problem behind your idea. Different values for the same global parameter can be handed over to the test case by addressing the global parameter via the command line (e.g. /pa:globalParameterName="VALUE").

                          To better understand your problem, can you please describe your scenario? Thank you.

                            @Wilco Rakhorst: please restart the service and clear the browser cache. After that is should work.

                            A new version of the license statistics tool is available! It shows the computer name and license type of the current user.

                              Hello Naganand,

                              thank you for your valuable input. Are you aware of the code snippet provided in the user guide for validating entire tables? Please find the information here: https://www.ranorex.com/support/user-guide-20/code-examples.html#c8203
                              You can easily encapsulate this code method and make it available for non-developers in the recorder using the user code library feature. Please find more information here: https://www.ranorex.com/support/user-guide-20/user-code-library.html

                                  Hi Andreas,

                                  Thank you very much for your input. What's exactly the reason why you would like to do this on a recording level, rather than on a test suite level? Later option would offer you data binding for different search terms as well.

                                  Cheers,
                                  Ranorex Product Management Team

                                    Hello,

                                    thank you for your valuable input.
                                    Are you aware of the run configuration feature? A run configuration defines a set of test cases to be run. You can create unlimited different run configurations and also set it from the command line.

                                    Best regards,
                                    Ranorex product management team

                                      Hi Markus!

                                      Thank you for your input! The keyboard shortcuts in Ranorex Studio are as follows:
                                      Close current view/Tab: Ctrl + F4
                                      Switch between open views/tabs: Ctr + Tab

                                      Are there any other keys you are missing in your day-to-day work?

                                      Kind regards,
                                      Ranorex Product Management Team

                                        Hi Daniel!
                                        Thanks for the input. As explained in the other comments, the Click() action necessarily needs to move the cursor to the element in question before executing the actual click operation. Does the behavior described by you occur in every web browser or only in specific ones?

                                          Although you have your blogs how to do web testing with Ranorex in general, it would be awesome if there is more out-of-the-box support which makes it easier to test my web service
