  • – Moves the property you have selected up on the list.

  • – Moves the property you have selected down on the list.

  • – Sorts properties on the list in the alphabetical order.

  • – Clears all property values on the list.

  • – Loads property values from a file to the list.

  • – Saves property values to a file.

Load Script

The Load script is run when the project is imported. You can use the Load script to create shared objects or import external data.

Note: By default, ReadyAPI does not run the Load script for security reasons. To turn off this restriction, deselect the Disable the Load and Save project scripts option on the Global Security page of the ReadyAPI preferences.

Save Script

The Save script is run when you save the project. You can use the Save script to store external information used in the project.

Note: By default, ReadyAPI does not run the Load script for security reasons. To turn off this restriction, deselect the Disable the Load and Save project scripts option on the Global Security page of the ReadyAPI preferences.
