Oracle Test Manager (OTM) is a web based test management tool for both manual and automated tests, it is an integral part of Oracle Application Testing Suite ( OATS ). OTM is used to manage multiple testing projects with different levels of user roles and access privileges. Each role in OTM has a specific function to perform in the Test Management Activities.

    Great article. Do you know if OTM has a tool that captures screenshots from Oracle Forms? I am able to the screenshot in OpenScript but when looking at the results in OTM I can’t find them.

    Thanks,
    Adrian

      Sorry for the delay in response my friend, I am not sure why your comment has gone in to spam folder, I had recovered and replying you now for your query. May be your issue is resolved by now though.

      It is unfortunate that when you run the scripts from OTM especially when it is run in the Interactive Desktop mode, you will not get Screenshots especially for Oracle EBS Forms, you will have to make sure that the interactive desktop is removed and then make sure the execution happens in your own machine where you want to execute and also, the machine where the script is running we should not lock the desktop / machine. Which otherwise you would get a black screen when you look at results in OTM.

      Please do revert to me in case you still have issues.

      Thanks,
      Srinivas P.

      Hi Murali,

      Thank you so much for reaching out to us, This issue is new to me as well, lets go on a screen share and see if we can get this resolved, in the worst case may have to work with Oracle Support team, I have couple of friends with whom I would check and come back too.

      Thanks,
      Srinivas P.

    I have some issues running automation scripts from OTM.Load test scripts are working fine.When i try to run functional scripts it fails and i got error saying unable to get browser connection with in 120 seconds.How to fix this issue.

  • Hi Srinivas,

    One more query, which database is OTM referring to?
    How is possible to get the connection string of the db?

    Thanks,

      May I know for what purpose you want to access the db of Oracle Test Manager?
      But, otherwise during installation of Oracle Application Testing suite, a separate b schema gets created, that is where all the data gets stored. If you refer to OATS installation guide, it would give the details of schema name and default user names that get created for Oracle Test Manager.

    Is it possible to trigger the execution of the testset created in OTM from command Line?

  • Hi Srinivas,

    Did you get a chance to explore on OTM Database because in order to trigger the script execution from OTM without any manual intervention I was trying to find the Scheduler table in OTM DB but was unsuccessful.

    It would be great help if you find any solution to this issue?

    Thanks and Regards,
    Kavitha

      Hi Kavitha,

      Firstly this is not an issue, it is basically a feature not scoped as part of OTM development is what I feel. And now if you want to bypass it and load your own records in to OTM related database might be a very risky thing. But anyways will check and get back to you on this if I find any alternative.

      Ideally you are looking to trigger / schedule execution of scripts from OTM so that the results are updated back in the execution report? kindly correct me if my understanding is wrong.

      thanks
      Srinivas P.

    Is it possible to perform the parallel execution of the scripts in same Agent machine?

      Hi Kavitha,

      In parallel with OTM and single Agent Machine it is not possible, but without OTM and only openscript you can acheive it.

  • Hi Srinivas,

    1) One more Query with respect to OTM. When I select the script for Execution by clicking on Find button the document says that the workspace will be populated automatically but the same is not true in my case.
    2) and also the password field needs to be provided if the script is encrypted by providing the password while creating the script, else the script cannot be playbacked in OTM but I am able to execute the encrypted script without even providing the password for the script in Openscript password field.

    Note:-Openscript installed in my machine is 12.5.0.3 version.

    Could you please help me in resolving this issue.

    Thanks,
    Kavitha

      Hi Kavitha,

      Please find below my responses:
      1) For you to execute the scripts from OTM, there is no need of workspace details, are you saying you are unable to execute because of this?
      2) Every script when recorded, will have default data as well, in case you do not provide test data, in case you have parameterized the OATS test automation script, along with “{{db.aliasname.colname,defaulttext}}”, so the default data is provided here. I hope that is why it is getting executed, do let me know if that is not the case for you?

      Reply
      • For the second case:- I have not parameterized the script, its only the recorded one and I have provided the password to the script under Tools–>script Encryption–>Encrypt.

          Is it possible for you to just share the code relevant to that single step?

          Reply
          • I am just navigating to Tools–>Script Encryption–>Encrypt and providing the password for the script and then trying to add this script in OTM under Test Tab but it is not blocking me to provide the password.

          • Author

            It would be helpful if you can share that one line of code which you have password with encryption

  • I am able to execute the scripts even if the workspace is not selected, but as per the document this field needs to be populated when we select the script from the repository so just wanted to cross check on this.

    We have the field named 3rd Party Test in OTM. What is the significance of this?
    Is it possible to add the .bat file that will launch the scripts?

    First of all thanks a lot for taking your precious time and answering to the Queries. It has helped me a lot.
    I have one more query with respect to OTM. What is the Limitation of adding the scripts in Repository?

  • Hi Srinivas,

    Is it possible to convert the Functional scripts to HTTP scripts?

    I have a scenario where I create a Functional script and when I execute from command Line the browser gets launched for each script execution. I would like to know if there is any way to convert Functional scripts to http scripts as for http scripts the browser will not be launched and performance is better compared to Functional scripts.

    Note:- Our Application is Oracle EBS Forms and browser supported is only IE.

      Hi Kavitha,

      There is no such process / tool available in market so far 🙁 and even if there is a conversion tool, you will again have to do many things post conversion , rather its better to just go ahead with creation of load scripts.

      I was thinking of one other wild option, not sure if its possible or not, start a new load test script using OLT and from command line execute the functional script. In case it does not work, may be you should keep some ip address as poxy and your load test script should listen to that proxy for creating the script. I think this was possible for creating security test script using HP’s Web Inspect.

      Please share your findings, experiments and their results, it would be helpful for others.

  • Hi Srinivas,

    Once I compile the script with osclti command from command line .jwg file will be updated. Can I directly add this script to OTM for execution?
    If yes, I tried adding the script named script1 in OTM but throwing me an error,so I opened the same script in Openscript and created the copy of the script with Save as option let say I named it as script2. Now when I try adding the script1 to OTM its working.

    What could be the reason behind this?

    Reply
    • Author

      This is extremely strange, ideally it has to work, tell me one thing, when you opened the script which was compiled using osclti did it ask you that do you want to upgrade the script or something like that?

    Is it possible to capture the stepgroup name from the script? I require this as I need to pass this as a parameter to the Function.
