Does Test Complete work on a Google Chrome Extension

Hi,

I need to automate a test using a Google Chrome Extension but it seems like Test Complete doesn't recognize a google chrome extension. Specifically, I need to get an authentication code using a Google Chrome Extension.

Does anybody here work on a google chrome extension before?

 

Thank you!

nope.

 

I just created a support ticket and suggested me to use OCR. It's doable once the chrome extension window is opened but not clicking the actual extension icon. So I will just use my screen coordinates to open the extension.

I'm guessing that he information you get from a Google Chrome Extension is not information in a web document but information in some sort of dialog.  If you're licensed only for Web automation, you might not be able to interact with the dialog as you intend to.

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.

Thanks for the quick reply.

We do have licenses for Desktop, Mobile, Web and the Intelligent Quality add-on.

So you mean the chrome extension should be under a different process from the Object Browser?

More on the lines that it's probably not running in the same process as the web application.
