Separate video report from rxzlog

Post by tpecze » Fri Jun 07, 2019 1:56 pm


we have a situation where we integrate test execution with TFS. The test are nested inside regular unit tests and results (rxzlog) are added to the test run results as attachments. If we enable video report in Ranorex, the log file can be quite large therefore the TFS won't accept it (max size 50MB currently). We need to find a solution to upload the report without the video and place the video to a shared network location.

One solution that came to our mind to execute the test normally and after that unzip the rxzlog, move the video somewhere, replace the video's path in the data file, zip back the report and then upload to TFS.

This solution works as I tried, the Ranorex log viewer can open the remote located video just fine, but are there any better solution for this?

Hi tpecze,

At this time, your method is the best solution I can think of to achieve this. I recommend creating a new feature request on our User Voice platform as I can see having a more streamlined method being useful. It means more when the request comes from you directly than from me.
