Feature request: Copy variables from one keyword test to another

Hi,

Currently I am creating the same variables multiple times for a series of related keyword tests.  It would be nice if I could create them once and then copy and paste them into other keyword tests.

Is that already possible and I'm just missing it?



Regards,

John

I suggest using Project Variables or Project Suite Variables instead.

Hi,

 

In which version of TestComplete we can expect this feature to be working ?

 

Thanks!

First of all.....this thread is 6 years old.  So, while it has some votes on it, it's pretty obvious that it is not a high priority change.  

Second of all, as mentioned, changes are prioritized.  Community up votes do add to that priority so the additional interest is important.  But I'm betting that there's probably things that are more important to even the user community than being able to copy variables from one keyword test to another.

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.
I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.

Re: RE: Feature request: Copy variables from one keyword test to another

Thanks for the great insight into the company's priortization strategy.

6 years and still this petty feature couldn't be added. So, it's better move on and to assume it will not be fixed in next 6 as well (probably due to other "high priority" tasks)...

Nevertheless, thanks for confirming the assumption.

Keep in mind... I'm a user... I'm not a SmartBear employee and anything I say should not be considered "official" from SmartBear.

So, in the meantime, let me grab my identity disk and I'll meet you on the game grid for a round of light cycles....
