Is there a way to use relative paths for recovery scenarios in UFT 12.54?
Question ID: 107849

I am trying to set up some Recovery Scenarios for my UFT tests. Because the tests will be run on multiple environments with potentially different paths for file locations, I want to use relative paths for the recovery operation scripts, but I can’t find a way to do it. Once the Recovery Scenario is written, it becomes read-only, so I can’t even modify it when I set up on a different environment.

I am currently running UFT 12.54.

I don't understand your suggestion. Re-reading my initial question, I realized that I may not have been clear as to what path I want to make relative. The path for the .qrs is easy to set as relative by adding the containing folder to the Folders in the GUI options. Where I can't set a relative path is for the Function being called in the Recovery Operation of the Recovery Scenario. Once the recovery scenario has been saved, it becomes read-only.

I have seen where users have stored items on network drive and used a map drive command in UFT to remap drive.

For example

Dim objNetwork, strRemoteShare
Set objNetwork = WScript.CreateObject(''WScript.Network'')
strRemoteShare = ''\myserverusers''
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive ''R:'', strRemoteShare, False

Or use the [SUBST command](
Then have all of the scenarios just go to the R drive.

Also, the recovery scenarios could be stored in ALM with the function libraries.
