Importing a Session
You can import a session from a different computer into your current project. For
example, assume someone at another site e-mails you a session file. You can import
this session file, regenerate scripts, and create a suite.
Upon importing a session into Robot, you are asked whether you want to generate
the scipts contained within the imported session. To do so, click Yes, and the scripts
are generated and opened in the appropriate editor.
To import a session file and regenerate scripts:
1. In Robot, click Tools > Import Session. The Open dialog box appears.
2. Click the session file, then click Open. The session and its scripts are now in
3. To regenerate the scripts in the session you imported, click Tools >

4. To regenerate the suite, click Tools >
Rational Suite TestStudio > Rational
5. Click File >
New Suite. The New Suite dialog box appears.
6. Select Existing Session, and click OK.
7. TestManager displays a list of sessions that are in the project. Click the name of
the session that you imported, and click OK.
TestManager automatically creates a suite that is ready to run.
Regenerating Scripts from a Session
You might want to regenerate a session's scripts for a variety of reasons--for
example, to overwrite edits you made to the original scripts (restoring the scripts to
the original recorded transactions), or to change the script generation options.
