Before creating the content of a test of your application's service layer, you must first create a test and create the test structure.
- In the UFT toolbar, click the New button down arrow and select New Test.
- In the New Test dialog box, select API Test.
Enter the following details for your test:
Location: By default, UFT saves documents at C:\%HOMEPATH%\My Documents\Unified Functional Testing. For this lesson, you do not need to modify this path.
A blank test opens in the canvas with a tab for the test flow (named Basic). Inside the test flow canvas is an empty test flow.
This test is also displayed as a subnode of the Untitled Solution node in the Solution Explorer pane. (This is the general solution name used when a test is created but not a named solution.)
You are now ready to begin designing API tests. Continue to Lesson 2: Create simple API test steps to learn how to create API test steps.
