Checkpoint validation

Relevant for: API testing only

When creating a test, it is helpful to confirm that the application performed its activities as expected. An application's response can contain several properties. Use checkpoints to define the expected values of the properties.

Enter checkpoint values manually, link them to a data source, or load values that were captured during a prior replay. This is useful when you have many argument values—instead of manually entering values, you automatically load them.

For WSDL-based Web Services and SOAP Requests, UFT includes two built-in checkpoints for the purpose of validation. One checkpoint validates the XML structure and the other checks its compliance with WS-I. Additional checkpoint settings let you trim the string, ignore case inconsistencies, and indicate whether to stop on failed checkpoints.
