Parameterizing the target base URL (e.g. Domain name) in e-Test scripts

Hi there,

I am currently building all my functional tests (scripts) using e-Test, given a target TG1 machine with URL (

Later I am planning to run these tests against another target TG2 environment, let us say (

Is there a way to do easily it, thus avoiding the need to re-record all tests again (i.e. if the target system changes)?

Many thanks,

    You can use Script Updater Utility (Programs - eTester - Script Updater) to update all your URLs. If you just change it on the first page, the new URL will be used for all the other pages, even if you don't see the new URL in the Address Properties for the other pages in the scripts.
  • Hi,

    Hum it seems that I currently do not have it installed...was it supposed to be installed on the "e-TEST suite" program group (available from the Start menu)?

    I only have e-Tester installed and no "e-Manager" or "e-Load" has been installed...

    Yes, it should be available as part of the eTester group of products. You have to check the checkboxes for these products when you are installing eTester. Also, eManager and eLoad need separate licenses than eTester. Script Updater is a new Utility that is available with eTester 8.2. So if you have an older version, you will not see it. There are other ways to change URLs, using VBA, so if you cannot find Script Updater or can't upgrade to 8.2, you can try them.

    Do you have access to the Archived Empirix Forum? There are some threads that deal with this issue.

    Hi again,

    thanks a lot for your quick response!!

    Actually, I have e-Tester V8.20 installed...I must have forgotten to click the check box during installation....

    Anyway, tomorrow or something I am going to install the latest version of e-Tester (made available by Oracle - 8.30 - I think) and will also install e-Load and e-Manager on an additional machine....I'll keep your suggestion in mind, so that I don't forget to add the Script Updater Utility...

    Thanks again for your quick responses,
