The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel.Open in a New Window



I'm testing a REST serivce and sending a POST / JSON to a 'https' url.

For each server behind the F5 load balancer the test runs successfully.

When running the test at the F5 I'm getting the error listed in the subject. 

Would anyone have some ideas to get me pointed in the right direction?

HP API Test unable to connect to FTPOpen in a New Window

Hello there,

I am new to the whole HP API Test environment (and automation in general) and am currently working on a proof-of-concept for my team to automate the upload/download of files using FTP. 

My goal for this test is to perform both uploading and downloading of files from a Unix server. The way we were doing previously is by using FileZilla client and port 22 (sftp).

I used the out of the box FTP features that HP API provides but it doesn't work. I have provided all the relevant connection information and login credentials and it hits me with "server committed a protocol violation" error message. I am able to connect to this server using FileZilla client with the exact same user credentials and am able to perform uploading/downloading of files. 

What am I missing here? do I have to configure something in order for me to use this feature? Appreciate your feedback on this.

Regular expressions in C# event handlers of UFT 12.54Open in a New Window


A question re REST API tests in UFT 12.54 . Does C# in event handlers like OnBeforeExecuteStepEvent support regular expressions? In code like:

var sUrl = this.RESTActivityV211.Url.Replace(<regular expression>, <target string>);

the regex does not get interpreted. HP's C# documentations are rather scarce in this respect.

UFT API -- "Select data" How to return values for query to Sybase databaseOpen in a New Window


I have to validate an API output with a values stored in Sybase DB.

When I use "select Data" activity to fetch the value from Sybase table, the value is returned in XML format as below:

 <Row><ColumnName1> Value </ColumnName1><ColumnName2> Value </ColumnName2><ColumnName3> Value </ColumnName3></Row>.

However I need only the Value so I can save it in excel to compare in my next step. Comparison is being done on value basis not with xml. I need to convert the response from select data (which is in XML format shown above) .

The subsequent checkpoint in API output fails as I need to provide individual values as input to the service.

I will need a solution that can either split array and give me individual values at run time Or I should be able to save only values in Excel which I can import at run time.



Thank you


API Test - XML Message ValidationOpen in a New Window

I am writing an automated test for validating a XML message.

A data element is defined as an IA5String

Test flow overview:  Consume Message / Convert to XML / Validate via Checkpoints

Consume and Validate Flow.PNG

I want to validate that the device-type contains one of three values.  Example:  "dog", "cat" or "mouse"

How do I check the device type using a checkpoint for 3 values?  Or is custom code needed?  If so, how do I write the validation?

Load testing a RESTful API using JSON filesOpen in a New Window


I'm just getting to grips with creating a API test for a REST service we have just built. Our current test suite is all GUI based tests so this is my first venture into API testing in UFT

I have successfully created a few basic tests each using a single JSON input.

Can UFT handle iterating through a folder that contains 3000+ JSON files and placing a few checkpoints to ensure each one returns the correct status code and response body string? 

Perhaps I'm mising the obvious, but using Get Folder Content and/or Read from File don't seem to be the correct way to do this?

Could any one give me a few pointers on whether UFT is suited to this type of test, and perhaps how I might get started? Or if anyone can post a link to any useful tutorials I would appreciate it.

Many thanks
