ranorex remote trigger

Post by SuperBodek » Wed Nov 02, 2016 3:14 pm


in my team we preform integration tests between 2 systems.
in essence - we send data from system A and check if B recived it.

in order to automate this process, we need some how to trigger the test on system B, when the execution on System A is finished.

what is the best way to acomplish this?

In my opinion, the best way to achieve what you want would be to use proper continuous integration system, like for example Jenkins (free). It may require some time and resources to learn and setup this system, but in my opinion, it's a great long-term investment! Once you start using it, you will never want to go back ;) There is even a tutorial how to integrate Ranorex tests with Jenkins:

This tutorial may not exactly cover your need to start the second batch of tests after the first one is finished. But it should be relative easy to do once the basic infrastructure is working.

Basically, you will have to configure two Jenkins jobs, where the second one will watch the first one and starts under defined conditions.
