Run Settings Pane (Settings Dialog Box)

This pane enables you to define when Sprinter saves screen captures and movies of your run, and autosave settings.

UI Example
Click thumbnail to view full size image.
To access

Select Settings button > Run node.

Important information
  • The options in the Run Settings pane that control screen captures are relevant only for tests that were run in Power Mode and determine which screen captures will be available for display for the actions in the Storyboard. For details, see Storyboard Window.

  • Sprinter temporarily captures and saves images for each action in your run. The options in the Run pane determine which captures will be saved with the run results and which will be discarded.

  • If the Capture all images in a test option is disabled in the Setting dialog box, your ALM administrator can enable it in the project. In ALM, select Tools > Customize. In the Project Customization window, select the Sprinter node, and select the desired options in the Screen Captures section. For example, Enable Storing of all images during a test. For details, see Sprinter Customization in ALM .

  • For ALM, changes to the Run settings will only apply to actions captured after you made the change.
