while recording a keyword test in Mapped objects i see that three different browsers are created

hi 

 

i have intially recorded in a environment A and i see that the Mapped objects had created a hierarchy of Sys -> Browser.

i had set the URL as Project variable and was switching to see if the test cases recorded were getting executed successfully in Environment B.

 

but some Text Properties were not getting identified in any environemnts so i tried to recapture the objects in Environment A, but i see that now the mapped objects are getting created under Sys -> Broswer2.

 

Can someone help me with where or what i am doing wrong.

You're going to need to remove any mappings that are duplications.  The wildcard should correct the problem moving forward but you still need to clean up your existing mapping.

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.

Yes... you need to edit your NameMapping for the page URL to be wildcarded.

 

For example, let's say I have two web enironments

 

http://testEnvOne.mysite.com/myPage

http://testEnvTwo.mysite.com/myPage

 

Recording on the first one will map using that URL.  Go in to NameMapping, edit the page, and replace the URL with

 

http://testEnv*.mysite.com/myPage

 

That will have the page mapping find the same page regardless of environment.

IF you're going to use the project variable, set the variable to the URL, not to the asterisk.  Asterisk is for wild-carding a string.

Hi Thank you  Martin

 

Have done the same  i.e set the wild card to the Browser URL and its is stcking to the same browser , 

 

but now i see that the different page versions  are created  in the Mapped Objetcs

 

like

Page WelcomeToAEGISNExtgen

Page WelcomeToAEGISNExtgen2

Page WelcomeToAEGISNExtgen3

and so on for each record

 

is there a way that i can stick to "Page WelcomeToAEGISNExtgen" only.
