Why don’t I see any of the file menu options?
This problem indicates that the license code has not been installed properly. When the application is first started, a license request dialog is shown. When you fill this form, a license request is made on your behalf. Until you receive your license code, you may continue to use the Repository Manager but you are not allowed to perform any file operations.
Once you receive your license code, please follow the instructions that is emailed to you to install the license key.
Why do I see many of the menu options disabled?
This is feature by design. Refer to the Repository Manager help to check when these menu options are disabled!
I have used ‘describe using a string’ to denote that the Object must be taken off from Quicktest’s Repository. Why doesn’t this work?
When ‘describing an object using a string’, you must take care of two
- Parent objects, all the way upto the top most root object must be defined using 'string' description
- The quicktest repository must have the same hierchical model for the object definitions.
The Repository Manager’s help explains this with an example.
I am trying to change the Object’s Type. In the object type tree, I don’t see an entry for my object. How do I edit the object type?
In the first release, only object types supported by the standard Quicktest installation are shown in the object type treeview. If you have a different object type, please use the option to ‘Enter text directly’. You can then specify any type as the Object type.
Why do I get an error while importing a Quicktest repository?
You must have installed the RepositoryUtil that comes with Quicktest Plus. For information about Quicktest Plus, please check the Mercury Interactive support site.
If you have installed the RepositoryUtil, then verify that the shared repository that you are trying to import has write privileges. Although the import feature only tries to read from the repository, for some unknown reason, the RepositoryUtil throws an error if the file is read-only!
If you have verified that both the above cases are valid and still experience an error, unfortunately there is not much that can be done. We have found during testing that retrying the import after a minute or two yields positive results.
Why is the type wrong after I imported a Quicktest Repository?
There is no documented method in the RepositoryUtil to retrieve an Object’s type. Workarounds were used to retreive the type. For all the objects that we tested, we found these workarounds to be effective. By definition, ‘workarounds’ may not be successful in all cases. If you find a problem, please submit this as a bug.
Can I import the definitions from a per-action repository?
NO. This version only supports shared repositories.
