Ranorex 9 support for Micorosft Unified Service Desk

Post by ivanchokees » Wed Jun 12, 2019 1:52 am


I’m trying to create automation scripts with Ranorex 9.0.1 for an application hosted in Microsoft Unified Service Desk v. (USD). To give you a background, USD uses Chromium/Cefbrowser in the background to host web applications. Whenever I’m locating an element within USD, it takes me a minute to locate the element and then actually performing the action (e.g. click, select combobox value). Also, sometimes locators/xpaths work, sometime it doesn’t – it’s very temperamental.

Is USD really supported by Ranorex? Will there be a future fix for this?

At first, could you please post a Ranorex snapshot (NOT screenshot) of USD/particular problematic element and the xpath you are using in repository? Without snapshot and xpath, it's impossible to suggest something reliable. Also, I would strongly suggest to update your Ranorex 9.0.1 with recent 9.1, because it fixes many problems. I don't expect it will fix also your issue, but one never knows? ;)
