Test scripts execution on different browser(s)

Jump to solution

Hi,

I recorded a visual test script using Silk Test v 18.5/Chrome. I have Silk central setup and script playback works as intended on the execution server.

How do I execute the same script using FF, IE on Silk Central?

Do I have to create a duplicate script with different Application configuration?  

Thanks!

Hi,

It's possible to redirect the Application Configuration in the Visual Test and run it against a different browser; by setting the 'silkTest.configurationName' Environment Variable through the Execution Plan Properties:

 

The variable should be set to one of the following:

Firefox

GoogleChrome

InternetExplorer

Edge

Safari

You might also want to look into the possibility of creating Configuration Suites in Silk Central, which allows you to run tests across multiple browsers. Further information on this can be found in the Silk Central Help documentation.

 

Regards...

Hi John,

Thanks for the screenshot, it helped.

This https://community.microfocus.com/borland/test/silk_central/f/ post helped me for creating configuration suite.

I wish microfocus has more visual information in the Help documentation.

Thanks
