The Test Suite Batch Converter plugin for Selenium IDE

The Test Suite Batch Converter plugin for Selenium IDE is now available on the Firefox addons site.

This plugin for Selenium-IDE allows you to convert one or more test suites, including their test cases, from the html format to any other format supported by the Selenium-IDE. This should work for most formats installed by other plug-ins. The resulting test suites and test cases will have the appropriate file extensions for the selected language for the supported formats. The names will also be sanitised to make them legal identifiers for most languages.

Once you install this plugin, a “Batch convert test suites…” menu item will be available in the file menu in Selenium IDE. See the screen shots for details. You can convert one or more test suites and their test cases in a single operation.

Mini user guide for the plugin

  1. From the Selenium IDE File menu, select the final format from the “batch convert test suites” menu item.
  2. Select the destination folder where you want to save all the converted test suites.
  3. Select one or more test suites to convert.
  4. Wait for the conversion to complete and then click on the summary dialog.

Available only in English for now, more languages will be added if there are requests.

Get it from the addons website. As usual, feel free to leave comments, improvements, advise, criticism, problems…

    i got this type of message while i convert test suite…could you help me from this!!!!!The underlying ruby-rc formatter reports that test suite export is not supported, hence suites will not be saved. Only test cases will be saved.

      Hi Venkataraman,

      This message is expected. Currently, the Ruby support in Selenium IDE is not able to handle saving suites. You may have to write some ruby code to handle test suites.

      Cheers,
      Samit

    The same for me: The underlying cs-rc formatter reports that test suite export is not supported, hence suites will not be saved. Only test cases will be saved.
    If possible please update for us! Thanks a lot!
