Where can I find experiences/hints regarding Citrix applications?

Post by Weissvonnix » Wed Feb 12, 2020 1:54 pm

Hi all,
I'm interested in lessons learned / hints / experiences regarding the test automation of applications on Citrix nodes.

Situation:
At the moment I'm using Ranorex 9.2.0 for the test automation of applications hosted on Citrix nodes.
That means, that I can run the Ranorex Studio from a Citrix node and other applications hosted on that node. All applications together with the Ranorex Studio are available in the prepared Citrix image.

To start the nativ Windows application I use the RunApplication in my UserCode: Host.Local.RunApplication("C:\\Program Files\\...);
This works, because the Studio and the applications are running on the same node.

Questions:
A) What is the best way to start Citrix applications with Ranorex?
B) How can I use the compiled Ranores Project (exe-file) in our Continuous Integration environment (CI/CD-Server)? I mean, how can I tell Ranorex to start from a Citrix node while I'm executing a .bat-file?

It would be nice to get some feedback.
Thank you in advance.
Niko

No experience of Citrix here, but the command-line options on the Ranorex tests EXE are excellent. They let you hook into build systems really easily:
