  3. Import a WSDL or create a REST service

    Import a WSDL file or create a REST service method. The Toolbox pane displays the service's methods in the Local Activities node.

    By default, the test stores these activities in its EmbeddedJavaResources subfolder.

    Back to top

  4. Move the activity to a repository

    In the Toolbox pane, right-click the service node, and select Move to > File System Activities or ALM Activities. This moves the service from Local Activities to File System Activities or ALM Activities in the Toolbox pane. The service is also removed from the test's EmbeddedJavaResources subfolder and placed in the repository folder.

    The next time you create a test, these activities will be accessible from the File System Activities or ALM Activities nodes.
