3.9.5.1 Reading and using values (variables) from the AUT

You can store values read from the AUT to use as data in other Test Cases .

  1. Use one of the store value actions on the various components to reads a value from a component in the AUT .
    \includegraphics[height=2cm]{lightbulb} You can also use the store value action on the application component to store a value you enter.

  2. In the parameter field, enter a name for this variable (e.g. USERNAME).

    \includegraphics[height=2cm]{lightbulb} Variable names may only contain letters, numbers and underscores

  3. When you want to use this value as data for a parameter, enter the variable name preceded by a dollar sign ($) as the parameter value (e.g. $USERNAME).

    Bear in mind that the variable has to be stored before it can be used as a parameter value.
