Keep only the latest Ranorex report

Post by nickdandakis » Mon Aug 12, 2013 3:34 pm

Hello everybody,

I've noticed (after checking my project in to SVN), that all Ranorex reports are saved in <TEST_SUITE>/bin/Debug/ as well as <TEST_SUITE>/Reports/. Now, I know there's an option to disable copying the reports over to the Reports directory, but is there any way to keep only the latest Ranorex report (or latest X number of reports)?

It's just a waste pushing to SVN all the files and directories the reports use.

You don't have to push all of those reports to SVN. Setup an ignore in SVN and it won't look at them.
Shortcuts usually aren't...

Thanks krstcs for that workaround, but I'd still like to find out if what I said above is possible.

Hello,

Reports are stored by default with a time-stamp.
Therefore, each test would reproduce a new report.

Would it be possible for you to leave out the time-stamp?
In that case, the previous report would be overwritten.
