      Question

      Answer

      1

      Will you be able to enable both IPv4 and IPv6 together, and either type of devices will be able to access system?

      Yes it is possible. But please note that while the application supports IPV6 deployments and accessibility, it is completely dependent on the network infrastructure as well (network translations etc….). Provided this is taken care by the IT team at your premise all these things will work as required.

      Do you need to turn on some parameters so awname tags are available in the html?

      There are 3 changes

      • Enable AWNameprefix
      • Enable Debug Mode
      • Set Production Mode to false

      With these three changes tags will be captured in the recording

      Is Selenium IDE is also compatible with the SP30?

      Support for Selenium will be available only from 9r2. It is not available for 9r1

      Will Ariba provide common Selenium Scripts?

      No, Ariba will not provide any out of the box scripts. This need to be prepared by customers based on the needs. However there will be sample scripts delivered for reference.

          Hi Hari,

           

          I was able to watch the webinar offline about selenium capability from 9r2.

           

          I have the below questions related to this topic, hoping to see your responses:

          1. Can Microsoft Internet Explorer be used instead of FireFox, to record the test scripts since FireFox is NOT a standard browser allowed for the end-users?
          2. Selenium being a FireFox Plugin, will it allow recording of upstream based test scripts that involve Desktop File Sync (DFS) ?
          3. Can the scripts created on one instance (DEV or Test) be migrated and executed on a different instance (UAT) ?


          Thanks,

          Gopal Agarwal

              Hi Gopal,

              Thanks for writing to us. Here are the answers

              1. Can Microsoft Internet Explorer be used instead of FireFox, to record the test scripts since FireFox is NOT a standard browser allowed for the end-users?

              Answer: The Selenium IDE is supported by open QA only on firefox. So, no, the tests cannot be recorded on non firefox browsers including Internet Explorer

              2. Selenium being a FireFox Plugin, will it allow recording of upstream based test scrpts that involve Desktop File Sync (DFS) ?

              Answer: Firefox does not support Activex plugins or VB script. So any features which depend on these elements will not work with firefox as documented in the compatibility matrix. The same is extended onto the Selenium recordings also since the firefox browser doesn’t support those features. This includes DFS, Excel export, word integration etc in the upstream product suite.

              3. Can the scripts created on one instance (DEV or Test) be migrated and executed on a different instance (UAT) ?

              Answer: The short answer, Yes, it will work. Slightly longer answer: Selenium is a UI automation tool and is very sensitive to UI changes. So as long as the UI elements are not changed between the two systems, e.g UI customizations are not added/removed between the systems, it will work.

               

              Let me know if you need further information.
