BPT Testing Tab (Options Dialog Box)
Relevant for: business process tests and flows
This tab enables you to set options for parameter use of a BPT test and its components in UFT.
Select Tools > Options > BPT Testing tab.
The Restore Factory Defaults button resets all Options dialog box options to their defaults.
User interface elements are described below:
|Promote component parameters||
Determines whether UFT automatically promotes parameters to the flow or test level (when adding a component to a flow or test) or promotes flow parameters to the test level (when adding a flow to a test).
|Always link to existing test parameters||
Determines whether UFT uses an existing test parameter during promotion or creates an additional test parameter, when a parameter with the same name already exists in the test or flow.
If selected, the Test/Flow Parameter Name suffix is removed, because the parameter may have been promoted from multiple components.
|Automatically open Object Repository after Capture||Opens the local object repository window after you close the capture toolbar to enable you to edit the objects captured in your object repository.|
|Load internal data for flows contained as part of business process tests||Load the parameter and iteration value data for any flows contained when opening a business process test.|
Instructs UFT which objects to automatically parameterize:
Note: If you want to specify exactly which objects to parameterize, you can set these properties in the configuration XML, located at <UFT installation directory>\bin\SmartAutoParameterizationConfig.xml.
|Automatically parameterize steps using Business Component parameters:||Enables you to use the Business component parameters as the step value parameters|
Instructs UFT how to reuse already existing components when learning components with the BPT Packaged Apps Kit. You can select one of the following options:
|Ignore comments when comparing scripts||Instructs UFT to ignore any comment steps when comparing newly learned components to existing components after learning an application.|
|Learn Flow Parameter Values||
Instructs UFT how to create parameters when learning or reusing components. You can select one of the following options:
Instructs UFT on the default type of component to create when learning. You can select from either a Keyword GUI component or a Scripted GUI component.
For details on the types of components, see Business Components and Application Areas.
|Automatically parameterize steps using Business Component parameters||Instructs UFT to create business component parameters (where possible) for test objects when recording, and use these parameters as the value of the test objects in the test steps.|
|Automatically create snapshot for newly recorded components when recording a BPT test||Instructs UFT to take a snapshot of the application window/page when recording.|
|Automatically check in newly recorded components when recording a BPT test||If you are working in a version-controlled ALM project, this option instructs UFT to prompt you to check in all components created during a recording of a business process test.|
