Calling Ranorex from Jenkins pipeline

Post by rickcuddihey » Sun Feb 27, 2022 5:55 pm


What is the best way to run Ranorex from a Jenkins pipeline.

Jenkins is running as an application not a service.

I have tried the following.

Running a batch file set to run as admin.
The batch file works but the screen is black so no clicking on buttons.

Installing the plugin and running ranorex cmdLineArgs: ....
The "ranorex cmdLineArgs" is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet.

Please help.

Thank you.

Black screens in report means, that there is not realized desktop. There must be logged user during the test and the session must be unlocked! Please follow the instructions in the Ranorex User Guide: ... lRDPbrspan
