Question about OS

Post by dulcehalv1970 » Sun Sep 27, 2020 5:50 am

Hi Team,

I am looking forward to run Ranorex scripts on different OS. For which I have planned to make master my Windows's machine (with Ranorex studio) and Slaves (Linux machines with Run time licenses). First question will it be possible ?
I am aware of Ranorex allows execution on linux in chrome and FF but wanted to ask about process.

Next Step, I have thought to execute it through Jenkins but have a thought over selenium grid too (Any how same amount of licenses are required for both). So, which one you think will be robust. It is a web app.

I don’t know from where you get information that Ranorex can be used with Linux, but I’m afraid, it’s not true. Ranorex is a pure Windows-based solution, with support for Android and iOS apps. So no, Ranorex tests cannot be run on Linux.
