Object Not Found Page (Maintenance Run Wizard)

Relevant for: GUI tests and components

This wizard page enables you to identify the Object that could not be found and the Step UFT was trying to perform.

The Object Not Found page opens when an object in your test or component cannot be found in the application you are testing or in the associated object repositories.

Description

Point to the Object

Click the Point button and point to the object in the application that should be used in the step. Use this option if you know the application has changed and identifying a new object for use in the step will resolve the issue, or if the object does not exist in the associated object repositories.

If the location to which you point is associated with several objects, the Object Selection Dialog Box opens. Select the correct object from the tree and click OK.

The Point to the Object option is disabled when:

  • The test or component is open in read-only mode.
  • The object is used within a function library function.
  • The object's method is defined as a registered user function.
Add a Comment

Use this option if you want to add a comment to your test as a reminder to fix the failed step.

The Add a Comment option is disabled when:

  • The test or component is open in read-only mode.
  • The object is used within a function library function.
  • The object's method is defined as a registered user function.
Suggestion

Displayed only if the Maintenance Run Wizard cannot find an object in the application that was not found earlier in the Maintenance Run Wizard run as well. If, when the object was first not found, you chose to replace it with a different object, the Maintenance Run Wizard suggests replacing it with the same object now.

Use as default

If, in subsequent steps the same object cannot be found, the Maintenance Run Wizard automatically replaces the object not found with the object you added to the object repository. The Maintenance Run Wizard does not open on these subsequent steps.

Skip

Skips the current step in the test or component and continues to run the Maintenance Run Wizard on the remainder of the test or component. This can be used when the problem is in the application being tested and not in the test or component.

Before clicking Skip, ensure that the application is ready for the next step in the test or component.

Retry

Retries the current step.

Stop

Stops the Maintenance Run and opens the Maintenance Mode Summary Page (Maintenance Run Wizard).
