Auto Detection of XF Definition and Configuration in Certify 11

Worksoft recently released their much awaited Certify 11 with new set of features that customers requested. One such interesting feature is an option to auto detect XF definition and configuration. Once configured correctly, this feature will automatically select a XF definition and Configuration without having the need to manually select them each time you change the application during Learn/Livetouch/Execution.

Note: This is a“preview” only feature. The auto detection settings are only for the windows user and doesn’t update the Certify database.

To use this feature, kindly follow the below steps

  1. In Certify main window, navigate to Tools->Configure->WebOptions

In the “Certify Web Interface Options” screen, navigate to the “Preview” tab. Check the below checkboxes to enable the feature and click on “Close” button.

Now, we will have to define rules to help Certify auto detect the XF Definition and Configuration.


2. In Certify main window, navigate to Tools->Configure->WebAuto Detect Rules Editor

In the “WebAuto Detect Rules Editor – Web Interface” screen, click on “New” button to create a rule.

Provide a Rule Name, usually the application name and Click “OK”. In my case, I want to use this feature on a Salesforce application.

You should now see the below screen with your Rule in the left pane. Kindly fill the details as shown below with respect to your application.

Note: You must have an existing XF definition and Configuration built for your application to use this feature.


In my case, I have selected an XF definition and configuration built for Salesforce application. Rules work based on the conditions you provide above. My Salesforce application contains “” as part of its URL on all the pages and the best attribute you could possible use is the URL. Rules also support multiple conditions.

Important note: Make sure to move your rule to top, the last rule is always reserved for the default XF definition and configuration when all the other rules don’t satisfy. Use the below highlighted buttons to position your rules and make sure to create a default rule to make sure Certify picks the default XF definition and configuration when all the rules don’t match.

Once you are done editing the rules, click on “Save” to save the changes.

Your all set! You should now see that Certify will automatically detect XF definition and configuration based on the rules you have set earlier.

Skip Costly Rework with Dynamic Change Resiliency​

Change resiliency is imperative in ever-evolving IT environments. Our patented object action framework streamlines change management by assigning object definitions to your shared assets. The same object may be used in a thousand automation steps, but it can be easily updated by making one simple change to the model definition. The change automatically propagates to every single instance where that object may have been used without a single line of code or manual human involvement. For more change readiness you can also engage our Impact Analysis for SAP to predict how changes in SAP transports will affect your business processes.

SOAIS Blog – Nuts and bolts of Certify Database Maintenance​

One of the key thing, which is often missed by the organizations, who have invested in using Worksoft Certify for automating their Business Process Validation initiatives, is implementing a Database Maintenance Plan. While the business and the test automation consultants get excited about the shiny new thing that they have got and start building the regression suite; planning and executing a database maintenance plan for most of the customers gets pushed down the priority list. However, since all the test assets in Certify are stored in a Database, a robust database maintenance plan is very important to maintain smooth operation of Certify with acceptable performance criteria. The customers usually start facing issues once they have built significant number of Certify processes which they have started executing on regular basis. Such executions add a lot of data to the tables storing results data and increase the overall size of the Certify database.

Worksoft Blog – Process Intelligence: A Multi-Dimensional Approach

The ability to extract process knowledge has become easier through the years. Technology has evolved to the point where we can deploy capabilities that connect at multiple levels to extract different types of process insight. In the past, organizations were forced to spend enormous energy extracting data manually from different applications and databases. Then, they would have to use things like spreadsheets to transform the data and convert it into meaningful information.
