This menu is also used to manage different channels used in a test.
Agilitest script editor represents a big part of the editor. It shows the actions you can execute on your tests. The editor will propose graphical interpretations of the actions that will be performed on your script. The ATS format is a textual format that will describe all its actions.
This section of the editor is designed to allow the reuse of components: copy of the actions or elements on which they act on or with subscript creation.
The actions display only shows the principale actions, but all cases can be managed in sub-menu.
The script header menu is used to manage a set of metadata linked to a test, like execution suite for example.
To have access to the script header, open a script and click on the “Script’s header data” button
You can visualize the ATS script corresponding to your test.
This can be useful to copy the information from the script’s header and send it by email or add it to a comment in your bug tracking tool.
You can also have access to the Java code which once it is compiled will allow the execution of the tests.
ATS and Java scripts cannot be edited directly in the editor.
To return to the script editor, click on the "Actions" button
