Managing Live and Test Object Repositories in collaboration with Git

Hi there,

I have a project that I have built using git to allow me to build things in a test environment, and then publishing them to a live branch that allows the automation to be used by a client. The object Repository has been a fantastic way for me to re-use selectors and implement large-scale fixes.

My only issue is that the test environment uses slightly different selectors (specifically, the application path is different for the O.R. Screens) in live and test. Does anyone have advice on how I can still use the object repository to manage these screens, but when I publish my changes to the live server, I won’t lose the functionality of those objects.

Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance.

Did you found a solution?

I don’t have a solution as of yet. The Library can be extracted and published to Orchestrator, as well as being able to add the libraries to your personal snippets and added to projects.

I have been swapping versions of my project using snippets, but would like to test downloaded packages from Orchestrator soon. That might offer the tighter version control.

Only potential issue I have found is the working library doesn’t update when switching between your live and test environments. So the project may be using test selectors, when the working library says live. I imagine this is just an issue with using locally stored snippets.
