Run Conditions Dialog Box
This dialog box enables you to define which attributes must match for a component or flow to run.
In the Test Plan module, select a flow or a business process test.
Select the Test Script tab.
Select the component or flow for which you want to add the run condition and click Add/Edit Run Condition .
Tip: In some cases, it may be preferable to define different flows, rather than use a large number of run conditions within a particular flow.
User interface elements are described below (unlabeled elements are shown in angle brackets):
Lists the parameter types defined in that entity. The following types are available:
Note: When creating a run condition on a parameter that contains a dynamic date value, define the run condition as a static date (for example, 12/10/2011), which is compared to the actual date used in the run.
Lists the available parameter.
Encrypted parameters are not listed.
Parameters with encrypted values cannot be chosen from the list when defining run conditions. It is recommended that you do not use parameters whose default values are encrypted when defining run conditions.
Lists the operators that need to be met for the component to run. The following conditions are available:
Enables you to enter the valid value for the condition.
Specifies what to do if the condition is not met. The following options are available:
Note: If a run condition is not valid, the run condition link is displayed in red. This can happen, for example, if a reference parameter was deleted, a parameter value was encrypted, and so on. Delete the run condition and define a new one.
Tip: Your selection in the Else box applies only if the run condition is not met. To specify whether to continue or end the entire run if a component run fails, set the failure condition for the component. You do this in the Test Script tab of the Test Plan module. For user interface details, see Test Plan Module Menu and Buttons for Business Process Testing.
Displays a text description of the run condition you have defined for the component or flow.
