REST Client tools created in versions 9.7.x and earlier will be automatically updated to use the new format when you open and save the associated .pvn
in the current version of the product.
If the environment variable has been masked, however, the Resolved URL field will not show the actual value (also see Masking a Variable Value).
Parameters can be configured in the Path and Query tabs, as described in Parameter Configuration. Any changes made in the URL will automatically be propagated to the Path/Query table. Also, the URL will automatically be updated to reflect any changes made to the Path/Query table.
- Valid HTTP Response Codes: Allows you to customize the tool behavior so that it succeeds with HTTP response codes outside the 2xx range. Specify single codes and/or code ranges as a comma-separated list. For example, if you use
"302, 500-599", a
302code or any code in the
5xxrange will be accepted. If you're using a parameterized value, be sure that the value in the data source uses this same format (e.g.,
Timeout after (milliseconds): Specifies the length of delay (in milliseconds) after which your FTP, telnet, or HTTP requests should time out. The Default setting corresponds to the timeout set in the Preferences panel. The Custom setting allows you to enter a timeout. A non-positive timeout value can be entered to specify an infinite timeout.
- Fail the test on timeout: Select this option if you want the tool to fail on the specified timeout.
- Pass the test only if a timeout occurred: Select this option to have the tool pass if the specified timeout occurs (i.e. the test does not finish execution within the specified time).
Outgoing Message Encoding: Choose Custom from the drop-down menu and choose an encoding for the outgoing message. The default is to use the encoding configured in the immediate parent test suite . You can also specify this option globally in the Parasoft Preferences Misc settings (see Additional Preference Settings ).
