How to pass values to a Certify batch file from command prompt using /attribute function of batch parameter

There are scenarios where we may need to pass values during run time via a batch file. These requirements can be handled using the different parameters present in the batch file of certify script.

An example where we are using the below function in the certify batch file.

Certify batch file

The steps to be followed are :

  • Create a Result attribute.
    Path : Extensions ->Attribute ->Result.

Right click on Result->select new attribute and input a name. Press Ok

create a result attribute
  • Create a sample process (Addition of numbers).
    The first step in this process should be under variable object ->“Set from Result attribute “ action.

Select the attribute you created “Result” and set to another global variable to perform the addition function.

3)Create a batch file for this process.
In the edit mode of this batch file we can see the Result attribute we created reflecting.
/Attribute = ”Result|”

Give this parameter in the below format (If we are setting the value outside the batch file), else hard code the value
/Attribute = ”Result|%Result%” or
/Attribute = ”Result|20”

Here %Result% is our variable (Output data) which we will set. For our example , we are using SET command to set a value for the result variable .

Create a batch file for this process

The output is as below:

Certify output:
We can see from below , the result value is 20 which we had set . It is now set to Counter.

The Addition has also taken place.

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.

Then, they would have to use things like spreadsheets to transform the data and convert it into meaningful information.
