Analyzing a new View
An UI Context will have views associated with it, and there can be multiple views that can be captured for a context. To analyze a new view click on Record New View button.
Learn more about how to capture a view.
Deleting a Context
To Delete a context, click on delete icon on the top toolbar.
Do remember, if a context is being used as Owner or Destination context for an Action than that particular context cannot be deleted until the association is being revoked.
Purge Views and Elements
As the application-under-test (AUT) evolves over a period of time, a Context may end up with multiple Views captured at various stages. There is a possibility that many of these Views are redundant or unused. Manually determining which Views can be removed is challenging.
accelQ provides a facility to automatically detect and delete such Views. It automatically scans element usage across all views and detects those that may be deleted without impacting action logic. Remember, a given element may be present in multiple views. accelQ optimizes this by calculating the minimum required Views to cover all elements from the repository.
You can purge and clean up the Views for a Context from the Context home page. You can also purge elements, which deletes the elements in the repository that are not used by any action in that Context.
Menu- Purge Views or Purge Elements
Do remember if possible, purge the elements before purging views, so that maximum cleanup is possible.
Move Actions or Views
As the multiple team members work on the application-under-test, and over a period of time, there can be situations where a Context becomes redundant because of another similar context getting created. In such cases accelQ provides an ability to move the Views and Actions created in a context to another context.
To move an Action or Views
- Navigate to the Context page
- Click on the more icon button on the top toolbar and select Move Actions/Views
- On the Move Actions/Views window, select all the Actions and/or views that you would like to move.
- Select the context you would like these actions and/or views to be moved.
- Click on the Move button.
Menu- Move Actions/Views
Window - Move Actions/Views
Do remember, there may be dependencies between the actions/views. All such dependencies must be part of the list of views/actions moving to another context.
