ScenarioBuilder Training Videos

Getting Started
   

This video is sure to get you off on the right foot with ScenarioBuilder™. See how to create a simple scenario that opens a web application and watch as the Scenario Recorder seamlessly captures your mouse clicks and keystrokes.

 

Learn how to create a scenario that opens a browser session using the "Open Web App" Action, and see how to enter search criteria into a Google search box. After viewing, the user will be able to create a simple scenario using the basic functionality of ScenarioBuilder™.

Using Images
     

Images Actions can be used to find icons and fields, click on them, open menus, close windows and more. Edit property values to customize image Actions. Direct mouse clicks to specific areas of an image, or to areas outside of images.

 

Anchor images provide a reference point for recorded mouse clicks in addition to keeping scenarios synchronized during playback by ensuring that pages load before mouse clicks occur. ScenarioBuilder alerts the user when it's time to update the anchor image.

   
Variables and Conditions
   

Variables can be utilized in ScenarioBuilder. Use pre-defined variable and user-defined variables stored in CSV files to replicate real world activity. The result of a "Find Image" Action can be used as an "Execution Status" variable.

 

Conditional Statements including the "Loop" Action, "Case" and "Switch" Action, and "If-Then-Else" Action allow you to replicate real world behavior in a scenario.

 

Explores how the hierarchy impacts the playback of steps in a scenario. A solid understanding of ScenarioBuilder's hierarchy structure will provide you with greater flexibility in designing simple to complex scenarios.

   

The "Read Text into a Variable" Action copies selected text, or converts selected characters from an image to text (using optical character recognition or "OCR" technology), and stores the value as a variable.

 

Images can be used to identify user accounts, items, etc. and loaded as variables to trigger subsequent actions via the "Load an Image into a Variable" Action.

 

In ScenarioBuilder, scenarios can be called from other scenarios using the "Play Script" Action. The terms "script" and "scenario" can be used interchangeably. The "Play Script" Action literally plays a scenario.

Transactions and Failure
     

Explains how Transactions are used to encapsulate actions in ScenarioBuilder and to measure their time elapsed to complete.

 

Explains how to use the "On Failure" action to create a section that only executes if the scenario fails.
