Need unique object properties of Parasoft SOA Test

Sathishk07Sathishk07 Posts: 8

Hi, For our project we are trying to automate Parasoft SOA test execution by using an automation tool. Automation tool could not identifiy objects in Parasoft SOA test. To overcome these object identification issues, we need unique object properties of Import .tst button and Treeview area under Navigator. Kindly share the details. Attached the screenshots and marked the fields for which unique properties are needed.

    Can you explain what you are trying to do? It's possible that there is a better way to do it than using an automation tool to automate the interaction with the SOAtest UI.

    We wanted to do End to End Test Automation. Wanted to automate the process of selecting envionment, uploading input test data, storing of Request xml, Response xml, Run and generating Parasoft Report. All these acitivities should happen without manual intervention in Parasoft SOA Test. To achieve this, automation tool should be idenfify the objects present in Parasoft SAO test. Automation tool could not identify some of the objects present. So need information of unique properties of those objects mentioned in attachments. Kindly share

  • Hi @Sathishk07,

    Did you consider use if SOAtest command line interface (soatestcli)?

    It is meant precisely for the purpose you are trying to achieve. Once you have prepared all your end-to-end test scenarios in SOAtest GUI, you just run soatestcli with appropriate parameters, including which test environment to use. It will perform all the tests within your end-to-end scenario, it will collect requests and responses, and finally, it will generate a detailed report.

    If i understand your goals correctly, soatestcli is much easier approach to automation compared to emulation of a user clicking through SOAtest GUI. This is what SOAtest command line interface was designed for - to automate your test runs.

    Could you please share web link of how to use command line for Parasoft SAOtest execution. By using commandline, I wanted to parametrize the process of selecting envionment, uploading input test data, Request / Response xml paths, Run the .tst file and finally generate and save the Parasoft Report in a location.

    pdf version of documentation you can find in manuals directory from your installation of SOAtest. Look into chapter "Testing from the Command Line Interface - soatestcli"
    You can find also on-line documentation here:
    Here is CLI usage:

    Our client does not have license for command line execution. So could you please share the unique properties of the highlighted fields in the attached screenshot

    I believe you need the proper license for test automation, not a "desktop" license.

    Do we have option to use Parasoft API for executing .TST files ?

  • jakubiakjakubiak Posts: 730 admin

    Yes you can do that, but you will need the appropriate license feature for it. I would suggest talking to your Parasoft representative to make sure you have the proper licenses for what your client needs to do.
