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?

Thanks much for any assistance!

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

Create MessageNode in Report programmaticallyOpen in a New Window

Hi there,

i failed to create a new Mesage-Reportnode programmatically in C#.

My Problem:
I Want to Create a new Node in Report out off a CustomCode Activity.

It works fine with an new instanz of the Checkpoint-Class.

But i want a new Node in the style of ReportMessageActivity or any other style.

A new instanz of ReportMessageActivity destroys the Report. i tried this Code:
            ReportMessageActivity t_ReportMessageActivity=new ReportMessageActivity(this.CodeActivity4.Context,"TestMessage");
            t_ReportMessageActivity.Destination="Run Results and Output Window";
            t_ReportMessageActivity.DirectExecute(new Dictionary<string,object>());

Does anyone knows another solution for this?

UFT - API - Rest webservice TestingOpen in a New Window

UFT does not encode URLs correctlyOpen in a New Window

I've been trying to test a web service on a port bound to HTTP GET, i.e. as a REST service.


It seems that UFT does not do URL encoding correctly, because an empty data set is returned in the response.

I can't see anything in the toolbox to do URL encoding either.

Does anyone know whether a Custom Code step is my only option to create the URL name/value pair correctly?


...and the same thing occurs with HTTP POST operations. i.e. UFT does not replace special characters with character entity references.

If anyone has any answers, please reply.

Happy testing!
