Cross-Browser Test

Post by ezek » Fri Aug 19, 2016 4:22 pm


Is it possible to iterate a test suite?
For example, I have a test suite that I want to run on two browsers.

I've seen how to do that for one test case, explained on one ranorex blogs (/blog/cross-browser-test-automation/).

But from what I gather you cannot to the same at test suite level.
It appears you cannot have a data source for a global parameter.

What do you think would be the best way to do that?

One way I could think of would be to create two run configurations and have within the test suite two steps
- Open browser X (checked ONLY for configuration X)
- Open browser Y (checked ONLY for configuration Y).

Much appreciated your thoughts on this.

Another possiblity is to just group the tests into another test case and add the data connection to it. Also run configuration can work as well. (That's what they were somewhat designed for)
