Each test project has the Name Mapping repository. It stores all objects used in your tests (applications, mobile devices, web pages, windows and controls) and the information used to identify these objects.

Note: Mapped objects are not supported in cross-platform web tests. To learn how to locate objects in such tests, see Addressing Objects in Cross-Platform Web Tests.
