  • Runs all the tests in the My Runs List pane.

  • You can indicate whether to run your tests on the desktop, or on a mobile device.
Run with Power mode activated.

Run in Power Mode to enable data injection, scanners, and macros.

The drop-down options are Run (all) or Run Selected Tests.

Open

Allows you to choose a test to add to the My Runs List pane. If you have tests in the My Runs List pane, this option appends the selected tests to the tests in the list.

For an ALM connection, the Open Dialog Box opens with the ability to filter and hide tests.

Save

Shortcut key:Ctrl+S

Drop-down options:

  • Save. Saves the run definitions for the selected tests.

  • Save All. Saves the run definitions for all the tests in the My Runs List pane.

Note: 

  • For non-ALM users, when you save a test, Sprinter creates a folder in the same folder as your test, which contains all your test's run information. The folder name is in the format <test_name_Runs>.

For ALM users, Application Lifecycle Management tests are automatically saved to Application Lifecycle Management throughout the test run. If you lose your connection to Application Lifecycle Management during a run, your test will display an asterisk next to its name indicating that the test has changes that have not been saved. You must first reconnect to Application Lifecycle Management in the Application Lifecycle Management Connection Dialog Box and then click the Save button to manually save the run results to Application Lifecycle Management.

Favorites

(ALM, UFT) Enables you to save the current list of tests as a favorite and load a saved list of tests into the My Runs List pane.

For details on how Sprinter maintains the list of favorites, see How User Information is Maintained.

Drop-down options:

  • Add to Favorites. Saves the current My Runs List pane as a favorite in the Favorites list.

  • Manage Favorites. Allows you to change the order of your Favorites list and remove favorites from the list. For details, see the Manage Favorites Dialog Box.

Name

For ALM users, tests in the My Runs List pane correspond to instances of a configuration in Application Lifecycle Management. These instances are referred to as tests throughout the product and this guide.

  • When you click the Run button, only active tests in the My Runs List pane are run. A test is no longer active it is already run. You can overwrite the curretn run using the right-click context menu, described below.

  • Right-click a test in the My Runs List pane to view the context menu (right-click) options described below.

  • For each test in the list you can set the status of the test by expanding the Status icon and selecting a value from the drop-down list.

  • An asterisk next to a test name indicates the test has changes that have not been saved.

  • For ALM users, a warning symbol next to a test indicates a problem with the definitions for that test. When you select the test, the warning symbol is also displayed next to the node that is causing the warning. Select the node and review the displayed definitions for any warning messages. For details, see the Run Area.

  • For ALM users, a lock symbol next to a test indicates that the test is currently locked. This occurs when you load a previous run of a test, and that run is also currently being edited in Application Lifecycle Management.
