Is it possible to replay the recorded test in the background(while performing other task in browsers or window's application).

Jump to solution

Currently I am using Internet explorer to record and replay the test but while I replay the test and perform other actions like opening another browser or work in word, the test get failed or its keying in the data provided there.

 

Can you please help to solve this.

Hello,

Silk Test requires full control over the desktop, the mouse, and the keyboard to be able to simulate the behavior of a real user. If you perform other actions on the same machine on which you are replaying a test, you take the focus from Silk Test, making it unable to perform the actions in the test.

The solution is to replay the tests on another machine, either physical or virtual, on which the Open Agent is installed. For additional information on replaying against Internet Explorer on a remote machine, see Testing with a Remote Open Agent.

For Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Edge, see Testing Browsers on a Remote Windows Machine.

Kind Regards,

Further to what Basilios says, if you are using Silk4J you could look into executing your browser (Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) in Docker environment.

See the help documentation here.

A Docker environment would likely require less overhead and resources on your side and probably quicker to setup and maintain than remote physical/ virtual machines.
