Jenkins - Rapise - Remote Desktop

Hello

I want to launch Rapise script on remote Desktop with Jenkins.

I have found some articles, but none seems to work.

My situation:

- i have a Rapise script on the HDD drive of my remote computer

- Rapise is installed on the remote computer

- I havec jenkins installed on a unix server with a created node of the remote computer.

I want to launch the script play.cmd.

It started but nothing appeared on the remote screen (but i want to launch the test withe the RDP window closed).

this is an output form the log:

###MSEdge Process Created (1)Process started PID:11040Connected to Chrome window:false> copie_html();Looking for object:htmlDeserializing object:HTMLObject/htmlLocation foundLocation:0 Locator:HTMLLocator foundConnected to Chrome window:falseBase object not found by locatorObject not yet available:html attempt:1Deserializing object:HTMLObject/html

 

Can you have a step by step guide to do it ? is it possible ?

 

Thanks

Hello,

RDP session must be disconnected in a special way to run UI tests. You may configure a CMD file or use RapiseLauncher -> disconnect RDP option.

Hi

 

Thanks but i have already done this but without success

 

I log on my VM (with my automate user), i click on the batch file as administrator., so i am disconnected

In jenkins, i use the play.cmd script (laucnh via batch file) without succeed too (log in my first message).

Can i launch Rapise without Spiratest ?

I don t need to use SpiraTest because my scripts are saved on GIT

I would recommend you log a support ticket, we don't give such specific advice on the forums.

Hello,

If your tests are in Git and you have Spira then you may run tests perfectly fine.

If you prefer Jenkins then

Jankins agent must be running on the VM and Rapise must be installed on the VM.

So the first question, when you are connected via RDP - do you see Jenkins doing anything? I would try first with opening Notepad.exe.

Max

Hi

Thanks Max and David.

 

Max :

Jankins agent must be running on the VM and Rapise must be installed on the VM. => Yes (jenkins AGENT not jenkins SERVER). I have declared a Node, it works already with UFT (same user) so the node is working.

So the first question, when you are connected via RDP - do you see Jenkins doing anything? I would try first with opening Notepad.exe. => no, nothing moves

I have read the jenkins log on the node, i see the workspace, and the log write like there is no GUI, no MSEdge launched
