Creating a name mapping aliases tree in bulk

I'd like to delete all existing name mapped aliases and start again using the name mapping tree we have.

 

I dragged to top level "browser" object from the "Mapped Objects" panel to the "Aliases" panel but noted only the top level "browser" object is copied across.

 

Is there any way to do an entire object tree with it's child objects?

When I drag the browser object, I get the following dialog

 

createAliaseChildren.png

 

If I click yes, all the child objects are moved as Aliases as well.

If you don't have this dialog, go to Tools -> Options -> General -> Show again flags and make sure the "Create aliases for child objects" option is checked.  That will restore that dialog for you.

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.
