How to Manage Parameters During the Execution
In every project, parameters of various types can be defined and then used in request item properties. However, when executing request items the value of every project parameter defined as Manually provided single value
can be changed temporarily without the need to alter its value in project properties. This functionality is available in the following application windows:
Basic request window; only when the window was opened from project request items.
Window for creating cURL requests.
Only project parameters defined as Manually provided single value
parameters can be managed during the execution, values of all other parameter types are automatically determined and cannot be changed. For more information on defining project parameters of various types, see the corresponding topic
How to manage parameter values
To manage single-value parameters during the execution in the windows listed above, press Ctrl+P
or click the corresponding toolbar button. Single-value parameters will be listed with their current values. You can change their values and click OK
button to apply them. New values will be used with the next execution wherever these parameters are used.
Parameter values changed as described above are retained while the project is open. Once the project is closed these changed values are lost and will revert to default values once the project is reopened. Note that changed parameter values are shared between the windows that support managing parameter values, for example, if parameter value is changed while executing in the basic request window, the changed value will be immediately available in the execution window presuming the project was not closed in the meantime.
