Opkey on Chrome

Opkey on Chrome is an add-on for the recording and playback of the test cases. Instead of Chrome Addon, you can now use Opkey on Chrome as a one-stop for the recording and playback of the test cases.

You’ll have to log in to the addon by providing the credentials. It allows you to create a new project as well as switch between different projects from the Addon.

It provides you with 3 options as mentioned below, to proceed ahead with its functioning.

Record Responsive Test


Let us discuss them in detail.

Create Opkey Test – Clicking on this option will take you to the next window with two available options.

You’ll have to click the first option of Record Test, to create a new Test Case or Function Library.

Record Test: It allows you to record the test cases with all the available recorders of Web, Salesforce, Workday, Oracle Fusion, People Soft, Kronos, Veeva Vault, MS Dynamics, MS Dynamics AX, SAP Fiori, etc.  

You’ll be required to provide the  Recorder, File Type, Name of the Test, and Application URL while recording the Test Case

You can also record a New Test Case as well as modify the Existing Test Cases or Function Library by clicking on the Existing TC/FL button. It will open up a new window of the existing Test Case and Function Library present in that Project.

After selecting the Test Case or Function Library, you will have to select the Object Repository which is mandatory. 

The recording of the application begins once you select the Start Recording Button. 


Record Responsive Test – With this feature you’ll be able to record the test cases that are responsive. You can choose the desired system resolutions, viewport or mobile resolutions while recording the test cases. You can use it to modify the existing cases as well. 

Rest all details of Recorder, File Type, Name, and Application URL remains the same in the responsive test. 

While recording, the Docker feature allows you to view the recording of steps in a small-sized window. This allows you to select the Mode of Recording, whether it is for Web, Desktop, or Mobile-based applications.

The docker also allows you to Spy on the Object. You can add Steps as well as Objects. The rest actions of the recorder too can be performed from Docker. The mini Docker stays open on the screen which facilitates the viewing of the actions being performed simultaneously.
