ScriptAssure page-standard

During playback, Rational® Functional Tester compares objects in the application-under-test with recognition properties in the test object map. You use the ScriptAssure(TM) Standard page to control object-matching sensitivity during playback. This feature enables you to successfully play back scripts when the application-under-test has been updated.

The ScriptAssure(TM) Standard page has the following controls:

Recognition Level -- Controls the level of recognition when identifying objects during script playback. To decrease tolerance for differences between the object in the application-under-test and the recognition properties, move the slider toward Strict. To increase the tolerance for differences, move the slider toward Tolerant.

  • The maximum Strict setting indicates that objects must be an almost exact match. If only one important recognition property is wrong, Rational® Functional Tester recognizes the object as a match after exhausting all other possibilities. An object with more than one wrong recognition property is not a match.
  • The maximum Tolerant setting indicates that Rational® Functional Tester selects an object with somewhat similar properties immediately.
  • The default setting allows two important recognition properties to be wrong but still is a match if all other possibilities are exhausted. An object with more than two wrong recognition properties is not a match.

Warning Level -- Specifies when to be warned about differences between the object and the recognition properties. To increase the number of warnings, move the slider toward High. To decrease the number of warnings, move the slider toward None.

  • The maximum High setting writes a warning to the test log of almost any difference. (Functional Test does not issue a warning when the difference is the browser.)
  • The maximum None setting omits warnings to the test log of differences.
  • With the default setting, Rational® Functional Tester writes a warning to the test log whenever it finds a test object after the maximum time has elapsed during playback.

Advanced -- Displays the Advanced ScriptAssure Preferences page, which enables advanced users to set thresholds for recognition scores.

Restore Defaults -- Restores the default values on this page.

Apply -- Saves your changes without closing the dialog box.

Changes you make on this page are reflected in the ScriptAssure(TM) Page-Advanced.
