Run test marked as automated manually

We have a LARGE number of tests that are marked as automated. (They are automated.) But we have need to also run them manually. The runner does not seem to give us any such opportunity. Can someone tell us how we can run a test manually that is designated as automated? Thanks

Re: Run test marked as automated manually

Hi @vthomeschoolmom,

 

Here is the article which describes how you can run automated tests: 

https://support.smartbear.com/qacomplete/docs/user/test-management/run/automated.html

 

But, I don't understand how you want to run automated tests manually in QAC. For example, you have a ReadyAPI automated test. Do you want QAC to open ReadyAPI for you, then, you will perform the steps and get the report? If so, there is no option for that. I can advise that you create a similar manual test with the needed steps and link the manual and automated tests.

 

Also, you may consider using this method of the QAC REST API:

https://support.smartbear.com/qacomplete/docs/developer/api/rest/automation/reference/sequencenumber...

You can perform the test steps manually on your machine, and, then, using this method you can post automated test results to QAC.

Re: Run test marked as automated manually

It is time for a release. Time is tight. I have a TestComplete test associated with the QAComplete test. It runs as part of our regular process, one of hundreds. It fails. I don't want to troubleshoot the automated test. I want to run the test manually and make it pass or fail accordingly.

Re: Run test marked as automated manually

Then, you can use the second approach. BTW, what error do you get for a failed run? Is it related to QAC or TestComplete? Please see the example: https://www.screencast.com/t/n93bAOJx6

Re: Run test marked as automated manually

An error in TestComplete. The workflow, normally, in day-to-day interaction would be to fix the error in the TestComplete test. But when we are at release time, we defer fixing the TestComplete test until after the release testing is complete.
