URL of the Request Item

When specifying URL for the request item, you have the following types of URL available:

Absolute URL

If you have decided to ignore global URL data specified in project properties, you have to specify absolute URL in the 'URL' field. Note that if the global URL data in project properties is not specified, this is the only option you will be able to use when specifying URL for request item. All other options require the presence of global URL data in project properties. When executing the request item, the application will use only absolute URL data from request item properties for execution.

Relative URL

If you have decided to prepend global URL data specified in project properties, you have to specify relative URL in the 'URL' field. Note that if the global URL data in project properties is not specified, you will not be able to save the request item. When executing the request item, the application will combine global URL data from project properties and relative URL from request item into an absolute URL and use it for the execution.

Global URL only

If you have decided to use only global URL data specified in project properties, the 'URL' field in request item properties will be disabled. Note that if the global URL data in project properties is not specified, you will not be able to save the request item. When executing the request item, the application will use only global URL data from project properties for the execution.

Append global query string data from project properties

If you have specified global query string data in project properties and you want to include it with the request item URL, select the option to append global query string data from project. Note that if the global query string data is not specified in project properties, you will not be able to save the request item. If the request item 'URL' field already contains query string data, the global query string data will be appended to the end of the existing query string data.
