Endpoint The Resource part of the target URL (including the port number).
The host cannot contain underscores.
Timeout The number of milliseconds to wait for the server response. If no data arrives within the specified time period, the request is considered to fail. If the value is 0 or is not specified, the wait time is infinite.
Bind Address The network interface (an IP address), through which ReadyAPI will send the request.
Follow Redirects If true, the request will follow the redirect and return the server message. Otherwise, a redirect message will be returned.
Follow 302 Redirect with GET If true, ReadyAPI uses the GET method for subsequent requests if the response has the 302 Found HTTP code.
Username The basic authorization username.
Password The basic authorization password.
Domain Optional. The basic authorization domain.
Authentication Type The Authorization type used for the request.
SSL Keystore Specifies the file storing private keys that are used to authorize ReadyAPI to the server. Only works for HTTPS requests.
Strip Whitespaces If true, ReadyAPI removes comments and extra whitespaces from elements and attributes. Works for request contents in the XML format.
Remove Empty Content If true, ReadyAPI removes empty elements from requests. Works for request contents in the XML format.
Entitize Properties If true, ReadyAPI encodes special characters. For example, HTML symbols like & or > are entitized into & or >.
Multi-Value Delimiter The delimiter used for separating multiple values of the same parameter in the editor. To learn how to use it, see Send multi-value parameters.
Pretty Print If true, ReadyAPI uses line feeds and indentation to display XML data of responses.
