Project Variables Issue

Hi,

 

I am using the variables to autamate my testing for a dektop application. I don't know how to view the usage of those variables? 

Meaning that from the Project variable itself, I can view and know the exact test item that used that variable.

Maybe this issue can make my work more easier and efficient.

 

Thank you

Re: Project Variables Issue

You can always do a search for Project.Variables.<Variable Name>.  That will find all instances of where that variable is in use.

Project.Variables aren't "code" like other variable declarations are.  So, there's no tracing back to the definition/declaration. They are items in the XML format of the MDS file of your project, configuration more than code. As @RUDOLF_BOTHMA mentions, you can put in a feature request. 

Alternatively, you could create a code unit and use traditional variables as your globals in whatever code language you're using.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

Re: Project Variables Issue

Hi @Nursyamim 

 

Would you mind elaborating a bit ?

 

From my understanding, it might be the way forward is to put in a New Feature Request

 

Or to search through current feature requests to see if someone hasn't already requested something similar for you to Kudo to get up the priority list
