When associating a shared repository with a test, it is alleged done so by filename. For example, my test is associated with the file 'GlobalOne.tsr' which we are using as a shared object repository for all our tests. We need to update this repository periodically and as such need to give a new file the name 'GlobalOne.tsr' and rename the old one to something else. After doing this, when loading the test again, it stays associated with the old repository. Why is it keeping a record of the file that is not the file name? How can I update this association across hundreds of test simultaneously?
Yes, add it dynmically.
Also can you try closing your test after OR changes and open it - generally the updated properties doesnt pick up so might have tmp instance of OR when u open a test which could happen in your case even if filename was changed.
