You can add multiple test suites per project and run them in sequence. This is especially useful when collaborating with others.
In this chapter
To add a test suite to an existing project, follow the instructions below:
In the Studio toolbar, click the Add test suite button.
In the dialog that appears, verify that Test suite is selected as the template.
Name the test suite.
Click Create .
The new test suite appears in the project view. Usually, it also opens automatically in the test suite view.
The initial test suite in the projects view.
The newly added test suite in the projects view.
The test suite tabs below the Ranorex Studio toolbar.
The new test suite file also appears in the Ranorex Studio Projects folder of your test solution.
To ensure the integrity of your project, you cannot cut, copy, or paste an entire test suite. However, you can delete and rename test suites. Select a test suite in the project view and open the context menu to use the delete and rename options:
Cut, Copy, Paste
Once a project contains at least two test suites, you can specify a sequence for the test suites.
If your project contains at least two test suites, a context menu will be added to the RUN button. Click it to open the test sequence configuration dialog.
Startup project selection
Use the order buttons on the left to change the position of the test suites in the test sequence.
Use the ON/OFF buttons to exclude selected test suites from the test run.
Select the run configuration for each test suite.
Run configurations are described in Ranorex Studio fundamentals > Test suite > ⇢ Execute a test suite.
Click the Run button to start the specified test sequence.
This section introduces the configuration file where the test sequence is stored and describes how to add test suite run parameters to this file.
When a project contains at least two test suites, a test sequence file with all configuration information is created automatically and added to the project folder.
Test sequence file in the project view
Test sequence file in the project folder
To open the test sequence file, double-click it. It appears in its own tab.
Text content of the test sequence file:
] enclose the test sequence file
} enclose all configurations for one test suite
, (JSON formatting syntax)
Command line arguments can be added to the test sequence file and will be executed during the test run.
Example command line argument
/testcase command line argument with a test case named
InsertName as parameter value
Command line arguments for test suites are explained in Ranorex Studio fundamentals > Test suite > ⇢ Run tests without Ranorex Studio.
This section describes the main features of multiple test suites within Ranorex Studio. It lists what can and can’t be done by means of multiple test suites.
The contents of one test suite can be transferred (copied, moved) to any other test suite of the same project or another project. This means that test cases, smart folders, setup and teardown regions, modules, etc. can easily be copied or moved from one test suite to another.
When you copy or move test suite contents to another test suite, data integrity with respect to variables and data binding will remain intact. No data binding is lost.
TestRail can also export/synchronize multiple test suites per project.
The TestRail integration with Ranorex is described in Interfaces & Connectivity > TestRail integration > ⇢ Introduction.
Test sequences can also be run on Ranorex Agents from the remote pad.
Ranorex Remote is explained in Ranorex Studio advanced > Ranorex Remote > ⇢ Introduction
