Debug Tests Quickly with Maintenance Mode

Feb 28, 2018 | Product Insights

Maintenance Mode

When the development team wants fast feedback from testing, you need to resolve failing test runs quickly. Ranorex Studio’s Maintenance mode saves valuable time by identifying points of failure during test execution, so that you can debug them right from the test run report. You can begin diagnosing and fixing errors without having to wait for an entire test run to complete.

The Maintenance mode was introduced with the release of Ranorex 8.0. If you are on an older version, you must upgrade in order to use the Maintenance mode.

Enable the Maintenance mode

To enable the Maintenance mode, ensure that the Debug configuration is active for your test suite. To do so, open the Ranorex Studio menu and select Build > Set configuration. Verify that the Debug option is checked.

Once you have confirmed that Debug is enabled, open the Test Suite view and turn on the Maintenance mode switch, as shown below. You can also activate the Maintenance mode from the command line using the parameter “-m”.

While the Maintenance mode is enabled, Ranorex Studio will pause report execution when an exception occurs. This gives you the opportunity to analyze and correct errors, then continue the test run. If the test performs as expected, you can apply your changes directly in the test run report.
