Article Summary

Important points when creating [Scenarios]

  • Autify creates a new environment for each test execution, and the environment is deleted when the test is completed. You cannot transfer cache, cookies, etc. to another test, but you can configure them using a [JS Step].
  • For a stable parallel execution, please create a [Scenario] that can be executed repeatedly.
    For example, in a [Scenario] for checking whether user registration can be done successfully, it may fail if the [Scenario] only includes user registration. This is because the user ID/email address was registered in a previous test.
    • In this case, there are two possible solutions:
      • Make sure that the user ID/email address is a unique value each time.
      • Record steps to delete the registered user's account in the [Scenario]. This way, no user account is registered to that user ID/email address each time the test is executed.

Important points when contacting us

  • We can provide support for [Scenarios] with up to 200 steps. For [Scenarios] with over 200 steps, we may refuse to investigate why the test failed.
  • If you would like to contact us about a failed test, please do so from the [Get Support] button in the error details section at the top of the screen. This will send us the information necessary to investigate the issue, and the investigation process will be smoother. Please do not use the Contact Us button at the bottom right.

Response Status for Frequently Contacted Operations

ItemResponse statusNotes
ENTER key inputSupported・Only the <input> element is supported.
・The <textarea> element is designed to accept strings with line breaks, so pressing the Enter key within the <textarea> is not recorded as a separate step in the recording process; it is assumed to be part of the input string.
・Since the iOS real device is not supported, please address this by using button clicks or a JS step as a substitute for the Enter key.
・Please refer to here for information on how to simulate pressing the ENTER key using a JS step.
