Recording a Web Test

Recording User Interactions

For Oxygen IDE download instructions - please refer to the Download Page.

Oxygen IDE allows you to record user interactions with the web browser and generate automation scripts. To begin recording open IDE and click on the microphone icon located in the top right corner. From here on, any action performed in the browser will be appended to the currently open script in the IDE. You may notice additional comment blocks preceding each command being recorded - those specify alternative locators which can be used with the command.

Currently recording is supported on Chrome.

It's advisable to disable Chrome extension when recording isn't used as it might unnecessary slow down the browser under regular use.
