Source Control: Multiple Users in Ranorex

Post by Finn » Wed Jul 30, 2014 2:45 pm


What is, in our case, the best way to work with multiple Users on one Test Suite?
We want one exe-File for the whole test.
Our problem is that every single change from each user is stored into the rxtst-file.
This makes parallel Development hard, because of the large rxtst file and all the merging.
Our plan was to create one "Main"-Test Suite and several single Testsuites(=rxtst-Files) for each user. if someone finished a Testcase, he'll copy the Testcase from his Test Suite into the "main"-Test Suite.
The problem is the copy: we have to rebound all variables in that testcase!
Is there any better way to work with multiple users on the same Test Suite?

Hey Finn,

It is not recommended to create several Test Suites and copy the Test Cases into each others Test Suites. Important information which is stored in the Test Suite (rxtst-file) will be lost.

Do you already know our blog about "Organizing a Test Automation Project with Ranorex Test Suites", there you will find a general explanation on how to work with Ranorex in case of more Users.
