Attachment Management

This feature allows you to upload the documents within OpKey. These documents could be of any type like excel, word, image, pdf, etc. but it should not be an executable file. You can use your uploaded document in your Test Script as per your requirement. The uploaded file(s) get saved under the DB, if the File Store Management under the agent utility is chosen as Store in Database otherwise it get stored under the Shared File Storage.

  • Click on ‘Attachment Management‘ link under Tools menu.
  • Attachment Manager window opens. Browse & select your file to be uploaded.

Attachment 2

The added file(s) can be deleted, updated, exported or searched by using corresponding buttons on Attachment Manager window.

There are 11 keywords which have been changed/added because of this feature. They are as follows: 

  1. CopyFile
  2. GetCellValueFromExcel
  3. GetFileExtension
  4. GetFileName
  5. GetFileNameWithoutExtension
  6. GetFileSize
  7. GetValueFromCSV
  8. ReadTextFile
  9. CheckFileExist
  10. SearchTextInFile
  11. GetFilePath

Data input parameters has been changed in the above keywords. A new Data Type File has been added. A new tab of Data Input Arguments has been added with the name of Attachment.

New data type can be seen in below mentioned components:

  • While creating Global Variables.
  • While adding an input parameter under Function Library.
  • While creating a custom keyword.

Files with size upto 4 MB can be uploaded in DB. For uploading files more than 4 MB size, user will have to change the “File Store Management” to store in Shared File Storage under the Admin utility.

A Practical Scenario:

In this practical scenario, let us get file name of an attached image file by using GetFileName keyword.

  • First of all, upload that required image file on the storage location as described above.
  • Go to Tools Menu > Attachment > Upload your file.
  • Let us create a Test Case file by adding a Test step having GetFileName keyword. Go to the right pane for providing Data Input Argument and provide path of your file from Attachment tab as shown below:

  • Execute this Test Case by clicking on Run Now button.
  • Once your execution process gets completed, you can see the execution result and analyse it.

In the result, in Output column you get file name of attached image file by using ‘GetFileName‘ keyword. In the same way you can use the other keywords related to file attachment feature.

Export Artifact & Folder

This is one of the most awaited feature of OpKey Web. Now, OpKey users can export existing artifacts from one OpKey domain and import the exported artifact(s) to another OpKey web domain. By using this feature, you can share desired artifact(s) to someone on OpKey Web working on different OpKey web domain.

  • Right click on the selected artifact folder and click on Export.

  • Have a look at the Artifact Exporting Details. Artifact exporting process is going on.

  • Here, you can have a look at your exported artifact.

Import Artifact & Folder

Let us see how to import the exported artifact folder.

  • Go to the destination OpKey Web domain, navigate to Project Workspace tab & click on Import Artifact button.

  • Import/Replica wizard opens. Select Import option and click on OK.

  • Browse & select the exported artifact compressed folder and click on Open.

  • Artifact Import wizard opens. Just within few moments your artifact(s) get imported to the destination OpKey domain.

  • Click on Refresh button in Project Workspace to view the imported artifacts.
  • Here, you can view that the desired artifacts have been imported to the destination OpKey domain.

  • In case of duplicate artifacts exiting at destination end of OpKey domain then those artifacts are skipped while exporting artifacts. In this case, you may get a notification message as shown below:

Note: You can not import exported artifact(s) on the same domain so far i.e. source and destination domain of OpKey must be different.

Making Artifact & Folder Replica

OpKey allows its users make replica of the required artifact(s) in same or different OpKey domain, as required. There are two ways to make replica of the artifact: Copy/Paste and Import/Replica but both ways are fundamentally same. You can make replica of the exported artifact as well as make replica of the copied artifact.If you have exported artifact in compressed form then go to the Import Artifact button at Project Workspace in the destination OpKey domain (same or different).

  • Import/Replica wizard opens. Select Replica option and click on OK.

  • From here, you can choose or create a folder in which you want to make artifact replica.
  • Click Next to continue.

Copy artifact and make replica

  • You can copy any desired artifact or folder and then make its replica in the desired folder.

  • Select the desired (destination) folder, right click on it and then choose Replica option.

  • If you want to add tags then you can add them from here. Click on Add Tags button, add tag keys and values.
  • You can retain original tags of the artifacts by checking Retain Original tag(s) checkbox.
  • Click Apply to continue.

  • Process of making replica has now completed successfully. You can view complete logs here.
  • Click on Finish.

  • Replica of the desired artifact(s) has been created successfully. Here, you can view the entire artifacts.


  1. When you make replica of copied test case which is mapped with any other artifact (like OR, DR, FL etc.) file then all the associated artifacts are also copied and pasted at desired location in the auto-created folder named as Dependent_Artifacts. Thus, this replica test case will be independent test case file and there will be no relation between this test case file and the earlier mapped artifacts.
  2. You can copy child & parent node but you can paste or make replica of copied parent/child node only within a parent node. In case of making duplicate (Copy & Paste) artifacts, when you copy a test case file which is mapped with any other artifact (FL, OR, DR etc.) file then you are able to paste that test case file at desired location and it will remain mapped with the earlier mapped artifact file.
  3. There is a notification message with checkbox that “Folder containing Gherkin/Sparkin file will not be replicated with any data. Only blank Gherkin/Sparkin file will be created at the destination end.” You can uncheck this checkbox, if required.



File and folder sync

OpKey users can now sync their files and folder from one project to another project in the same or different OpKey domain. In this way, all your file(s) and folder(s) will get exported and synced with the desired project existing on the targeted OpKey domain.

Let us see how to sync a folder (containing few files) from a project to another project existing on the same domain.
  • Navigate to the Project Workspace, right click on the folder and the click on Sync option.
  • Enter OpKey URL Name (domain name), User Name, Password, select Project and click on Sync in sync wizard.
  • You can save the entered credentials in Sync Wizard by marking Remember Me checkbox. If you want to sync file or folder without syncing user(s) then you can mark Sync without user(s) checkbox.
  • Sync process gets started. Here, you can view the destination url, user name, project name, files with count and sync logs.
  • Sync process is going on. Please wait until the sync process gets completed.
  • In this step, it checks if the syncing file(s) & folder(s) are existing. Enter Data Encryption password of the Source Project and click on Submit to proceed sync process.
  • Here, you can view that the sync process has completed. Click on Finish.
  • Here, you can have a look at the synced folder is now existing in another project on the same OpKey domain.
  • Thus, the sync process has now completed successfully.
