To use a property expression, use one of the following formats:
You can reference properties by name only in a property expression (that is, without the braces) because they are already defined as properties. If the property is not found, the property expression is returned inside braces to indicate that there is a problem in the expression.
A good way to get some practice with property expressions is to build a simple test case that has a single step: an Output Log Message. This step only writes to a log and displays the response in the Interactive Test Run (ITR) Response tab. Therefore, you can experiment with using property expressions.
The following example uses the multi-tier-combo test case in the examples directory.
This graphic shows our example in the ITR utility.
This graphic shows the Properties tab in the ITR. The tab that is shown is for the step Get User.
This graphic shows the Test Events tabs in the ITR.
Look for the event Property set in the Test Events tab.
