Recovery Scenario is used to instruct UFT to recover from unexpected events and errors that occur in your testing environment during a run session.
Recovery scenarios are saved in recovery scenario files. A recovery scenario file is a logical collection of recovery scenarios, grouped according to your own specific requirements.
key Elements of Recovery Scenario
Below are the key elements that are part of a Recovery Scenario:
- Trigger Event: The event that interrupts your run session. For Example – a pop up window or a UFT run error
- Recovery Operations: The operations to perform to enable UFT to continue running the test after the trigger event interrupts the run session. For Example – Clicking the ok button in pop up window or restarting Microsoft Windows.
- Post- Recovery Test Run Option: The instructions on how UFT should proceed after the recovery operations have been performed and from which point in the test UFT should continue. For Example – you may want to restart a test from the beginning or skip a step entirely and continue with the next step in test.
