Hi,

Ranorex agent is a Windows-based app, so it's only possible to run your tests (via Remote agent) on Windows machines. The only possibility to run tests (web-based only) on Mac is using Selenium Webdriver integration.

As for Azure integration, check this post:

Okay, Thanks.

If I would like my Ranorex scripts to be invoked in cloud base machine say Azure or in AWS. Please verify below method understating is correct.

1. I need to make couple of cloud machines as end-points for selenium web driver (Run time licenses)
2. I need to invoke test cases from windows machine (master node from studio)


If this is correct, how Can I make invoking automated other than using Jenkins ?

Hi,

If the Azure or AWS machine will be windows-based, then you don't need to use Selenium webdriver at all. You just have to follow the Remote execution guide:
https://www.ranorex.com/help/latest/ran ... roduction/

In case you want to run your web-tests on Mac (Linux, headlessly, etc.) you need to use Selenium webdriver integration and then yes, you have to create endpoint for each such machine.

Ranorex now supports command line for endpoints, so you should be able to run your tests from anywhere you want (windows-based machine), using command line.

Thanks a lot. It solved many problems. Last question :

Can I automate invoking using a bat file and windows scheduler ? In context of web driver execution.
