Description from store Qualys Browser Recorder is a free browser extension to record & play back scripts for web application automation testing. Qualys Browser Recorder includes the entire Selenium Core, allowing you to capture web elements and record actions in the browser to let you generate, edit, and play back automated test cases quickly and easily. The authors would like to thank contributors to SideeX, Selenium Core, and Selenium IDE. Qualys Browser Recorder would not have been possible without their valuable work, time, and effort. https://www.qualys.com/docs/qualys-browser-recorder-user-guide.pdf

  • (2022-08-10) Nigel Beresford: Works well for recording test cases BUT causes repeated freezes in chromium based MS Edge on some websites. For example: https://www.diy.com/ I've tried 2 separate instances and each time, disabling the extension immediately rectifies the problem. I'll still use it but for now it has default state of disabled in my browsers.
  • (2020-09-01) Keagan Williams: In the current version, if it is unable to bubble itself to become window.top. It will cause an infinite loop and freeze your tab.
  • (2020-04-16) Robin: Works ok, even though the test playback isn't so fast. But the UI mostly only respond after doing something 2 times. e.g. renaming a test: first click nothing happens, second click the name input box opens.
  • (2018-07-25) Chris Arndt: This tool allowed Qualys Web Scanner to successfully submit a Rails web form. This tool works nicer and is uploadable to Qualys than the previous tool (Selenium IDE). Thank you! to the developer of this extension.
  • (2018-07-17) Guy Yollin: My purpose in using this tools was to create authentication scripts to be used with Qualys Web Scanner. This tools seems to be very gen 1 like. But the worst part is that simple authentication scripts created with the tool are still not compatible (without manual post processing) with QAS.

Latest issues

  • (2019-05-29, v:1.1.4_4) Mayur Sharma (last_mayurai): Issue running the Script
    While running the script, every time I have to change the URL in the script, then only the qualys recorder works, this has started happening recently. Earlier I did not have to change/add any URL.
  • (2019-03-03, v:1.0.3_3) HI
  • (2018-08-20, v:1.0.3_3) Cannot import scripts into WAS
    Created a set of Qualys Recorder tests. When uploading to the WAS, it says I need to use full paths: "The Selenium script cannot be uploaded since it contains URLs with relative paths. Please update your script before uploading. Tip: Using Selenium, select the configuration option to record absolute paths.." All paths are absolute in the IDE, so need advice on how to correct the issue.
  • (2018-08-15, v:1.0.3_3) Import / Export icons together
    You have an export button, but the import button is actually a folder icon just below it. Please can you put them next to each other with similar icons (arrow down = export, arrow up = import). It makes it clearer how to use it. But all working well so far!
  • (2018-07-17, v:1.0.3_3) Guy Yollin: error importing script to qualys
    Just downloaded QBR as a replacement to Selenium IDE for creating authentication scripts to be used with qualys web application scanning. Script runs from QBR but cannot be uploaded and generates an error message about paths being relative. Also, generated script has a ton of what appears to be unnecessary stuff in <datalist> and <options> within each main command delimited by <tr>.
