Revisit Instance to Instance Testing

I currently an setting the instance (URL) at the project level and It works as expected. Our user community does not want to reset the instance for each project every time it is tested. There is a methodology for using wild cards (Mapping) in the URL and I have not quite figured it out. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

The video is great for dynamic ids within links. Thank you so much for sharing. I have not figured that out for changing from instance to instance (url)

Give us a screenshot of where you are trying to set this up and we can probably help.

Re: Revisit Instance to Instance Testing

I ran the test in one instance and I have a very simple login script.

In QAT5 it works fine and then can not find this object in another instance....QAT1



Unable to find the following object when executing the SetText command:

Aliases.​browser.​pagePersLogIn.​sectionPanelColumnHalf.​textboxUserId

The highlighted object is the one that needs an alias and I can not figure it out our getting it to work.

Okay, but where is that object in the Name Mapping?  That's where a alias will be set up.

Re: Revisit Instance to Instance Testing

I posted that realizing the solution was close as I came to the conclusion there was a new object name being generated each time. I wild cared the URL string and I am testing right now. I believe I may have it figured out. It is funny how we work (in isolation), as you forced me to work they way that works for me. As soon as I talked out the problem the solution was pretty clear.
