Domain name trouble

Post by csolanki » Wed Aug 29, 2018 11:07 am

Hi Team,

I have come across an issue, If I want to run my scripts in staging as well as prod environment, in which the change is only of URL. For ex. and When I am trying to run it, my test cases are failing due to domain change problem.

As in few cases, only 'a' element has been called by base domain. How to run my scripts across dev, stag and prod environment. Is there anyway by which I can skip creating scripts in all different environment or in other words I can resume my one env script in another.

Ranorex version : 8.2.1
Windows : 10

Have you tried to use “or” operator within the domain xpath? Like this

Code: Select all

/dom[@domain=‘’ or @domain=‘’]

I have tried changing URL and domain, that worked.

But If I will give 2 domains as you suggested, I have to give 'or' between URL`s too. Is my understanding correct ?

Hello Ashvin,

There is a quite good article in our user guide describing how to use variables inside the Ranorex Repository.

Please read the section Repository variables and let us know if you have additional questions.

Best regards,
