UI Element Description

Enable BPT Packaged Apps Kit

Enables you to use BPT Packaged Apps Kit features in ALM.

Automatically create new component with manual implementation If checked, Business Process Testing assumes that new components should have a manual implementation and automatically prepares them for the creation of manual design steps when creating a business component.
Include report entries for each component iteration

If checked, Business Process Testing project reports list entries for all the iterations of a component.

If unchecked, Business Process Testing project reports list only one entry for each component, regardless of the iterations.

Upload BPT test results to ALM as single .zip file

If checked, the Business Process Testing report will be compressed and uploaded into the ALM server. (Checked by default)

Exclude component parameter values from the BPT Report Viewer If checked, the parameters from the test and the components will not be displayed in the Business Process Testing report. (Unchecked by default)
Define the level of Reporter.ReportEvent steps included in the BPT Report Viewer

Sets the level of the Reporter.ReportEvent steps included in the BPT report.

Possible values:

  • Pass: Displays all the Reporter.ReportEvent steps in the BPT Report. (By default).
  • Fail: Only the failed Reporter.ReportEvent steps are displayed in the BPT Report.
  • Done: Displays all the Reporter.ReportEvent steps. Not affected by status.
  • Warning: Displays the Reporter.ReportEvent steps if warnings have occurred or if steps are marked as failed.
Enable automatic promotion when creating a business component or flow parameter

If checked, Business Process Testing gives you the option to automatically promote parameters to the next level(s) when you add a parameter.

  • When adding a component parameter, the parameter is promoted to any flow or test that contains the component.

  • When adding a flow parameter, the parameter is promoted to any test that contains the flow.

Enable automatic deletion of unused test/flow parameters when deleting a parameter at a lower level

If checked, Business Process Testing gives you the option to automatically delete the parameters from the next level(s) if the parameters are not used at those levels.

Note: This has no impact on other parameters that happen not to be in use. This affects only those parameters that were deleted at the component or flow level.


A parameter called LastLoginDate exists in a component called Login. The Login component is contained within a flow called LoginToSystem and a test called LoginToAllSystems and at some point, LastLoginDate was promoted to the flow and test levels.

LastLoginDate is no longer needed. When you delete LastLoginDate from the component, the parameter is also deleted from LoginToSystem and LoginToAllSystems.

Set default On Failure behavior to

Business Process Testing sets the default behavior when a component in a test script fails to either: 

  • Continue. The business process test will run the next business component or flow if a component fails. By default, this failure condition is defined for each component when it is added to a test.

  • End. The business process test run ends if a business component fails.

When executing a test automatically convert String to Date parameter If checked, the business process test will convert a string parameter value to a date parameter value. (Checked by default)
