Soapui Pro losing my test step changes?

Hi there,

Repeatedly I am loosing changes made in my test-step. These are usualy xpath match or groovy script assertions within the test step. After re-opening the project (next day) I notice that some of my changes are gone.

What is causing this? How can I resolve this issue?

 

Thanks in advance!

Together with IT-dept we have found a way to preventing this issue from happening Smiley Happy

To work with ReadyAPI we log on a different machine with remote desktop connection. By making me administrator on this machine the issue no longer occurs. I share this to others that might have the same issue and for Smartbear, to help them in analysing this issue.

Re: Soapui Pro losing my test step changes?

I've noticed this happening occasionally (Note: I'm running version 1.7), though I've never been able reproduce on demand, or been certain enough to be sure I didn't do something wrong.

 

My solution was to add the below script as the  "TestRunListener.beforeRun" event, this checks all of my test step assertions for common mistakes or issues I've seen, on finding a problem it just logs a warning message. At the very least I'm alerted to an issue immediately while things are fresh in my mind, this and source control help me a lot.

 

This script could easily be expanded as required.

Re: Soapui Pro losing my test step changes?

Hey @Said

 

I'm using ReadyAPI! v2.4.0 and I notice this occasionally.  I'll make an assertion change or alter a parameter value and the change doesn't stick.

 

I would make a change - click somewhere else - run a test and it would fail and then I'd notice the change hadn't 'set' - so even hitting save and closing ReadyAPI! wouldn't save the changes because the changes hadnt 'set' when I made them.

 

I got into the habit of making a change - clicking out of the field (to move the focus) then click back to see if the change had been set - sometimes it had, other times it hadnt.  If it had - I'd hit save (and the changes would be saved successfully), if it hadnt - I'd make the change again and then hit save.  I noticed it more with REST parms than anything else - but it did occur in other functions as well (assertions etc.)

 

I've got no advice to help with this other than to say that to recheck certain changes after theyve been made to make sure the changes actually stick.

if this helped answer the post, could you please mark it as 'solved'? Also if you consider whether the title of your post is relevant? Perhaps if the post is solved, it might make sense to update the Subject header field of the post to something more descriptive? This will help people when searching for problems. Ta

Re: Soapui Pro losing my test step changes?

@Said,

 

Yes I have also face this issue too several times but never re-generate the issue.

I saved some groovy code into the TearDown of TestCase and whole day i worked on it and at EOD i saved my work and left for the home, but next day when i came back that code only that groovy code was gone. Strange though!!

This same thing happened next day too, so what i did is reinstall my ReadyAPI and cleaned all the cache and Temo Memory, and as of now it is working fine 🙂

 

 And answer to your question i think there is some kind of defect by which it reverting some things, so we can't do any such thing to save tasks

Where / how did you cleaned the cache? And what is Temo Memory?

Sorry it's Typo, it's Temp Memory.

To clean i installed CCleaner software, it did by itself 🙂
