Ignore run config and run everything

Post by tinekastil2 » Mon Jun 22, 2020 5:38 pm

Hi everyone!

I was researching on how i can auto build and run my tests fromthe commandline and have almost everything set up.
What im missing is:
How can i execute the built ranorex solution exe but ignore the default run config? My goal is to always run every test case and smartfolder independent from the run config.

I have found the following but unstatisfying solutions:
1. Add an ALL run config to every rxtst file which needs to be maintained manually if folders change.
2. Code some python script or similar to check for all ids and make sure they are in the run config.

Im thinking there must be an easier solution but was unable to find something, but maybe someone on here has a solution for me?

Thanks in advance

As far as I know, there is no other option than to explicitly define all test cases and smart folders in Run Configuration. I personally never found this to be a problem, because I always have RunAll configuration, where all finished tests are listed. But I see it can be a problem in certain cases. Well, I'm afraid, you will have to make a feature suggestion here:
