Global Parameters import/export

Post by giuseppe.lacagnina » Fri Sep 18, 2015 10:27 am


I would like to be able to export and import the global parameters definition between different Ranorex projects. Is that possible? I would like to avoid having to re-create them by hand every time.

Currently it is not possible to import/export global parameters from the test suite. If you would like to make a feature request you can send an email to [email protected].

**The following is "Use at your own risk!!":
Having said that, the test suite (*.rxtst) is an XML document, so you might be able to open the two suite files in a text editor (not Ranorex Studio) and copy/paste from one to the other.

The problem with this is that Ranorex identifies almost ALL internal elements (test suite, parameters, variables, modules, repository elements, etc) by a GUID. If two elements have the same GUID (like when you copy things outside of Ranorex Studio) it will cause conflicts and errors.
Shortcuts usually aren't...
