Update from Local Repository Dialog Box

Relevant for: GUI tests and components

This dialog box enables you to select components and tests containing actions, whose local object repositories you want to merge into a shared object repository.

To access

In the Object Repository Manager Main Window, select Tools > Update from Local Repository.

Important information
  • You can select multiple tests and components.
  • For actions: You can add only tests containing actions that are associated with the shared object repository you are updating and whose local object repositories contain objects.
  • For components: You can add components only if you are currently connected to the ALM project in which they are stored. The components must be associated (via their application area) with the shared object repository you are updating and their local object repositories must contain objects.
  • Before each merge, UFT checks whether the local object repository is in use by another user. If so, the local object repository is locked and the objects for the selected action or component cannot be moved to the target shared object repository. A warning message is displayed. The merge can be performed when the local object repository is no longer in use by the other user.

The list of actions (within the selected tests) and components that contain local object repositories to include in the merge.

Add Tests or Components. Enables you to browse to a test or component and add it to the list. Click the down arrow to browse for tests or for components. (You can browse for components only when connected to ALM).

For actions: If you select a test that contains multiple actions, only the actions that are associated with the shared object repository you are updating and whose local object repositories contain objects are added to the list.

Update All

Instructs the Object Repository Merge Tool to automatically merge the local object repositories with the shared object repository according to the preconfigured settings and opens the Object Repository Merge Tool. You can then modify any conflict resolutions if necessary.

Note: If the list contains multiple actions or components, merges are performed one after the other, and you can review the shared object repository and modify any conflict resolutions after each merge. For details, see Object Repository Merge Tool - Multiple Merge Window.
