In the Select Variable dialog, you select a variable you want to use for parameterization, data correlation, response validation, or to create a condition to check in your scenario.
To call the dialog, click the button in:
Expression column of the Data Replacers panel. The button is available if the data replacer’s area is Cookie, Body (Path), or Header (Path).
Variable or Variable or Value columns in the Validators panel.
Variable or Value column in the expression editor of the Set Variable Value operation.
Simulated Host column of the Host List panel.
Click to show variables grouped by their sources. Project variables will be shown as child elements of the project. Scenario variables will be grouped by requests for which your tested web server returned responses in which the scenario variables are defined.
Click to show or hide variables that are not used in any request. Click to show or hide variables that pass data to requests.
Click to show or hide user-defined variables. Click to show or hide auto-correlation variables (variables created automatically by the Correlate Request and Response Parameters wizard).
|Note:||If both the project and the scenario define a variable with the same name, the dialog will show only one of the variables. The variable will include the requests that use the project and scenario variables. During simulation, the test runner will use the scenario variable.|
To find the needed variable quickly, use the Quick Search that filters out the variable list according to the text you are typing in the Quick Search edit box. To cancel filtering, erase the text or just click in the Quick Search box.
To create a new project variable, click New Variable and follow the instructions of the Variable wizard.
