When you are testing a web application against different environments, it can be useful disable to default browser auto-updating policies so that you have a stable testing environment. This articles describes how to disable the auto-updating policies of Google Chrome and Firefox.
BrowserStack enables testing of your website for cross browser compatibility on real browsers. Instant access to multiple desktop and mobile browsers. Learn how to configure Selenium profiles in Rapise to enable connection to BrowserStack services.
Requires Rapise 5.3+
Learn how to configure Rapise to run cross-browser tests on AWS Device Farm.
Requires Rapise 6.7+
Since version 6.3 Rapise has support for local browser and mobile profiles. Using it you may package browser profiles along with tests. What if you want to reuse browser profiles between different projects? Or have sets of profiles for different situations? You may now set path to profile directory using a special global variable. Supported in Rapise 6.4+
In some cases it makes sense to launch a browser in private mode to ensure exact same conditions every time you run a test. This helps to cope with such things as remembered accounts or pending sessions not disconnected by a previous test. Learn how to properly adjust browser profiles from this article.
When running a test you will often want to make sure there are no other browser windows open. This is commonly done either at the start or end of the test. This article describes how you do this.
To ensure that web tests always run on a browser window of a specific size you may use different techniques.
From this article you will learn how to pass additional parameters to Selenium or Appium target, even if they can not be specified in a profile. This recipe can be also used to override parameters of a profile right from a test code.
In some cases it may be convenient to construct Rapise Objects dynamically rather than capture in advance with record/learn. In Web tests you can do it via Navigator.Find.
BrowserStack supports automated browser testing via Selenium and Appium on real iOS and Android devices. Learn how to configure Rapise to connect to Browserstack via Appium.
When writing a web test in Rapise you will often want to run the same test script in all three web browsers (IE, Firefox and Chrome). You will want to be able to choose the Test Script from within Rapise when debugging the test and then from a Test Set in SpiraTest when you move the test into production. This article explains the process.
Sometimes you have a test that you want to run on Chrome, Firefox, and IE in the same script. Normally you write a browser-agnostic test and then have SpiraTest simply call Rapise with different browser names as a parameter and then you have the same test executed multiple times. However suppose you want to have a single test that by itself can run on all the necessary browsers. This article addresses this case.
Sometimes when recording a test against a mobile responsive web site, it is useful to be able to record on the local browser (before playing it back against a cloud service such as SauceLabs, Browserstack, etc.). However you want to always record using a specific browser window size.
Let's assume you have a cross-browser test which was created on desktop and can be successfully executed on any desktop browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari). You want to execute this test on your mobile devices or emulators. Learn how from this article.
Sauce Labs allows users to run tests in the cloud on different combinations of browser and OS versions as well as mobile devices and emulators. Learn how to configure Selenium and Mobile profiles in Rapise to enable connection to Sauce Labs services.
Sometimes, when troubleshooting complex issues with SpiraTest, SpiraPlan, SpiraTeam or KronoDesk, it's necessary for us to get some additional information to troubleshoot the issue further. For example, when we receive a report of performance trouble when using our cloud services, there are a lot of different factors that may contribute to the problem. To narrow down the cause of the performance problem, we need more data.
When attempting to drag and drop items to rearrange list pages, it does not work.
Sometimes after your instance of SpiraTest, SpiraPlan, SpiraTeam or KronoDesk is upgraded (or you upgrade an on-premise edition), the screen doesn't display correctly.
If you have your browser zoom set to a value that is not 100% when recording or playing back scripts it will affect the playback reliability. Specifically Rapise will click/move at/to false locations in the test browser.You need to set your browser zoom to 100% before doing any playback/recording activities.
