KeyWord Mode - Property Checkpoints are NOT using Aliases

For 2 plus years now whenever I set up a Property CheckPoint - it used an Alias as the 'Object' value - example - Aliases.browser.pageWwwUlineComIndex.panelTrlongdescription.panel.panel.panel.panel.textnode

 

Today it is not.  It is using this -

Sys.Browser("chrome").Page("https://testsite.uline.com/Ordering/Step4Print?ZgAAAB+LCAAAAAAABADLdE4sKvF0sbU0NzExNLU0V8v0L0pJLfIrz...").Table(0).Cell(1, 1).Table("TableBillingShippingInformation").Cell(0, 1)
 
AND -  When I create a CheckPoint a 'Sys2' is create in the Mapped Objects area, and a 'Browser2' is created in the Aliases area.
 
Has anyone seen this before?

OK... so... what it sounds like is your NameMapping file might have gotten corrupted somehow.  Do you have a source control back up of it?  Try and restore that and see if that fixes the problem.  I've tried TC 14 here and it's working fine which means that it's probably something messed up with the file.

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.

What version of TC are you using?

Thank, sir.  After I replaced the NameMapping file, it worked fine.  

 

I am still concerned as to how it got corrupted in the first place.  How does that happen?

Re: KeyWord Mode - Property Checkpoints are NOT using Aliases

I've seen corruption happen, mainly, with an improper merge in source control.  It's a fairly complicated XML structured file that, if you get the start tags or end tags wrong or out of order, you can blow away a whole bunch of stuff.
