How User Information is Maintained

Sprinter saves settings and other user-specific configurations and applies this information the next time you run Sprinter.

When you run Sprinter, this information is saved in the Application Lifecycle Management project, per-user (as unique information for each unique Application Lifecycle Management user in each project). Additionally, it is saved to your local computer, per Windows user profile. If you do not have an ALM license, the information is only saved on your local computer per Windows user profile.

The next time you run Sprinter, it applies these saved settings and configurations, if they are available. Some information is saved and applied per-user and some information is saved and applied depending on the application defined for your test.

The tables below describe how the user information is saved and applied (  Some user information is relevant for Power Mode features only, as indicated by the Power Mode icon ).

  • Uses the list from your last Sprinter session.

  • When you load tests, Sprinter checks the first test to see if it has a defined application. If it does, Sprinter checks if that application is in your list of applications in the Applications pane. If it is missing, Sprinter adds it to the list and selects it.

  • If you do not have permissions to modify resources in Application Lifecycle Management, all your test settings and configurations are saved for your user profile on your local computer only.

Macros Sidebar

When you save a macro, add a data set, or create a rule, Sprinter associates it with the application defined for your test in the Application Pane (Power Mode Group).

When you select an application for your test in the Application pane, all the macros, data sets, and rules associated with that application are available in your test.

This information is retrieved per-user in your Application Lifecycle Management project. If you do not have an ALM license, this information is retrieved per-user profile on your local computer.

Note: By default, rules are applied per-application. You can define global rules for all your tests in the Rule Wizard - Rule Details Page.
