Ideas to Improve Ranorex

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

  1. Report improvement - option to export report in CHM (compiled HTML help file) format

    Hi,

    Currently, Ranorex reports are not easy to distribute and view for non-technical people and people without installed Ranorex. Ranorex Report viewer does not exists as a standalone setup file and even if there would be such a thing like Rx report viewer installation package, people don't like installing an extra SW just for viewing reports ;)

    Yes, we can save reports in HTML format, but this option creates list of files, which must be first compressed for easy distribution and then again, people must do some extra steps to view HTML-based report. True, there is available also PDF conversion,…

  2. Support for screen dpi Scaling above 100%

    Today's computers have HD screens or above, and for most laptop, it makes everything so small that ALL of the manufacturers recommend to use the Scaling at 125%
    All laptops that we use have the scaling 125% as a standard setting

    We are testing desktop apps and Web pages
    All of those UI need to work fine in such a typical configuration: 125%
    I request that Ranorex supports the 125% dpi scaling in a much better way.
    All support blog that I see indicate to use only 100% scaling on all screens.

  3. Make it possible to extend an existing repository, similar to sub-classing

    We're testing an application which has a few variations with a series of elements that are common to all variants. Ideally we should be able to have one core repository with all common elements and "child repositories" that inherit from the core for each variant. This way modifications in a core repository would propagate to all child repositories and we could even have elements in child repositories that are found within containers defined at the parent/common level. Presently, we have to either include one same repository in test suites for each variant and have all variations' UI elements included in…

  4. 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.

  5. Avoid TestRail Sync - Manual Mapping of Tests

    Due to a recent bug that messed up my TestRail tests and my workflow I would love to get rid off the 2way sync between TestRail and Ranorex.

    When I create tests I do this in TestRail...with a good documentation...good steps and so on...so as perfect as possible.

    Then I just want to add a test in ranorex, right click on it and "Set TestRail ID...".
    From that time, the test is mapped to test testrail test without any synchronisation....just an easy mapping.

    Benefits:
    - a sync error doesnt mess up the most important thing about my tests (the project…

  6. Add support for custom grid elements in Ellie Mae application

    At this time, the grid elements in the Ellie Mae application are only accessible via the GDI plugin on a non-Windows 10 machines. Adding direct WPF plugin support for these custom grid elements will greatly improve object recognition and automation in the Ellie Mae application as these grid elements are used widely throughout.

  7. Change Key Press Time for all Keyboard-Actions in Solution

    It would be nice, if there would a setting to change the Keyboard "Press time" for all Key Sequence Actions currently available in the solution. So you can change ALL Keysequences from 100ms to 20ms for example. At the moment, there only is a setting for "Keyboard relation action time (ms)" in "Recorder Defaults", which only effects new Keyboard-Actions. It is a pain to change every Key-Sequence when you got over 100 Testcases.

  8. 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.

  9. Ranorex recorder does not identifies Xpaths having relational operators in Object Repository

    Many objects in our object repository contain relational operators like following-sibling, preceding-sibling, ancestor, parent etc., for example as shown below:

    //b[@innertext='abc']/ancestor::tr/td[2]
    //a[@innertext='xyz']/parent::td/following-sibling::td
    //select[@id='abc123']/parent::td/preceding-sibling::td/label


    Such objects can be highlighted using Spy without any issues, but not picked up in the recordings.

    The recorder is creating duplicate objects for such elements with Xpaths like below:

    body/div[2]/div/div[1]/div/div/?/?/table/tbody/tr[2]/td[@innertext~'^ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ ']

  11. Please add an option to map the Ranorex automation result to the custom status on the Test Rail

    The automation test results are defaulting to the system 'Test Status' on TestRail.

    (e.g)Ranorex - Test Rail (System name)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Successful - Passed (passed)
    Failed - Failed (failed)
    Blocked - Untested (untested)

    As shown in the attached image we have some custom test statuses on TestRail (e.g Automation Pass, Automation Fail) instead of the System status we want use our custom test status in Test Rail for the Ranorex automation results
    Please consider adding this as a feature in Ranorex to map the automation test results to a custom test status on TestRail?

  12. Upload the report automatically to the created Jira issue

    Since version 9.1.0, I started to use Jira integration, I use automatically issue handling.

    I'd like to see an option to upload the report to the created jira issue.

  13. Allow data-binding of option labels in a select list

    Currently, the set value method for a selection list only allows setting the TagValue so if the HTML looks like this:
    <option value="552">ABA</option> a human user would know to click on "ABA" and doesn't care about the value. However, in our test, we have to have this:
    Set value Tag Value 552
    We would like to be able to do something like
    Set Value Text ABA.
    or something like that.

  14. Duplicating a recording module inside of the same project instead of having to create a new one and copy/paste the steps into it.

    Going to save a lot of time instead of copying a test suite to run on a different platform/Environment.

  15. View step #'s on the report

    I would like to be able to view the step #'s in the report.

    As a user
    I want to be able to view corresponding step numbers on the report after testing has finished.
    So that I can troubleshoot more easily and note which steps often throw warnings.

  16. Custom fields for Jira

    One of the key features we were looking forward to with Ranorex 9 was the Jira plugin that allows us to integrate our tests with Jira. Unfortunately it is currently not possible to fill certain custom fields like dropdown lists automatically.
    This is somewhat vexing especially when you have a bunch of those as required fields.

    I would like to see a functionality that allows me to add custom fields to Jira.

    Thank you for your input.

    We are constantly searching for ways to improve our Jira integration, especially since it’s so new. We will keep that in mind, and since our old (unofficial) Jira integration was able to handle custom fields, this would be a logical next step for this feature.

  17. Search with Multiple Keywords in Group Module Browser.

    We are working on a project with large number of Group Modules (200+) and this number keeps on increasing. So, it is a hectic job to search group modules with single keyword as the search will result in large number of group modules with the same keyword in its name. Searching group modules with multiple keywords like "keyword1" and "keyword2" will make searching of Group Modules very easy.

    Thank you for your input.

    We will talk about it, however, we beliebe that module browser view and project view are not the perfect solution altogether. It is likely that we will do a major overhaul for these two (where this problem would be addressed, of course) before we will tackle some small feature like this on its own. However, we don’t have a time frame on this yet.

  19. Use custom report templates also for ReportToPDFModule

    At the moment (V9.0) the PDF converter don't use the custom report templates,
    As the ReportToPDFModule does not use the templates the generated pdf is not much of use. You have to make the pdf from the custom report by hand.

  20. Allow linkage into Atlassian Jira, not just for bug submission

    We create and track requirements in Jira. We need a way to link a requirement issue to a Ranorex test to show coverage.

    Thank you for your input.

    We always look for ways to make our Jira integration better. We will evaluate if and how such a way to link Ranorex tests with requirements would be possible.
