Run Configuration MetaInfo

Post by IanKnight » Wed Feb 17, 2016 10:06 am

Hello,

We currently use a custom Report Logger to log run information to a central database, this works great and does almost everything we need.

However we also extensively use Run Configurations, and I have not found a way to obtain the Run Configuration name during the test run so it can be logged to the database.

Currently I have to log the test suite name alone which is great, but doesn't give me enough granularity of information when I run the same test suite but a different Run Configuration.

So the question I have is how can I find out what Run Configuration has been selected when I am running a test ?

If it is not available during runtime then it is definitely a feature I want to request. I have mentioned it to our Ranorex account manager in the past but not heard any response so I thought I'd try the forum route as well.

Thanks

Hi,

If you mean you want to obtain the name of actually selected run configuration, then it's possible via this code...

Code: Select all

string getRunConfiguration = TestSuite.Current.SelectedRunConfig.ToString();

In the end I used -

TestSuite.Current.SelectedRunConfig.Name.ToString()
