Understanding Wait Conditions
You can customize how long SOAtest and/or Virtualize waits after performing a user action in order to move on to the validations/extractions phase of the current scenario step, and then to the next step in the scenario.
However, you may want to manually adjust or modify the wait conditions in order to get the scenarios to perform as desired. In many cases, multiple wait conditions will be used for a single scenario step.
The wait conditions captured during scenario recording can be viewed and modified in the scenario step’s Wait Conditions tab. Available wait conditions include:
In addition to manually adding new wait conditions from this tab, you can also add them automatically from the Browser Contents Viewer tool.
The Browser Contents Viewer allows you to specify a wait condition graphically, from a view of the rendered Web page.
The wait condition added will automatically be configured to wait until the clicked-on element is present.
Identifying Elements Associated with Wait Conditions
The element that is the source of a wait condition will be highlighted with a solid green border in the Browser Contents viewer.
Configuring the Order of Wait Conditions
The Wait Conditions appear in order of execution in the Wait Executions tab. You can Add, Remove, and change the order of conditions by clicking the appropriate buttons in the Wait Conditions tab.
