I am getting the error Unavailable (Name mapping). I just said yes to an update and teh file is missing.
None of my scripts run in Test complete nor in Test Execute.
Last time that I ran the scripts was on Tuesday.Sept 17th , 2019.
I need the file from Tuesday Sept 17th 2019 which has all my updates.
I tried to recover but file is not found.I also tried going to the path where all the files are stored but could not find the file at all.
Do I contact Smart bear?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I had to use the older version of name ampping file that was saved in a different location.
Now we have a Git Repo for QA to save the Test complete files with versioning through TFS. Thsi will save the name mapping file with dates and will have versions.
You can search your drive for NameMapping.tcNM
Perhaps you accidentally changed the directory.
Do you not have your files in a version control of some sort? Or backed up to another drive at the very least? If I don't want to do a check-in, I copy the day's work to my user drive that is on the network in case my laptop dies.
Test Complete is on a VM within a VM. I did not do any directory changes.
Lesson learned i should have copied it somewhere else on a daily basis.
What do I do to find the file?
I have the file in anotherr environment which is like from September 10, but teh most difficult work was done on Monday September 16th.
How can I retrieve the Sepetember 16th name mappiong file?
When I do a serach it is not found but when I go to teh path where the files are stored under Test Complete I have it under another project but from the earlier date.September 10
Your search should at least be finding the September 10 file. Have you tried asking your IT department for help in locating it?
You can also try contacting Support here:
I opened a support request with Test Complete. Our IT does not back up anything in test environments.
Below is the screenshot of the path and it is missing the name mapping file.
That's the folder for the project suite... note that there's a subfolder for your project (TestProjectIsara). Go to that folder. In there, there will be ANOTHER subfolder called "NameMapping"... in there is a file called "NameMapping.tcNM". THAT'S the NameMapping file. It sounds like you removed it from your project. If the file still exists, you can re-add it back to your project.
Did you find the cause of the issue?
