Module 5: Parameters


This module will be focused solely on MaxTAF Cloud's parameters. These are name-value pairs which can be set on different layers and are available to test cases when they are executed in different contexts.

The priority with which parameters are used is (from highest to lowest priority) User - Suite - Test - Project. This means that if there is a conflict between two parameters with the same name on both the User and Suite layers, the parameter on the user layer will have higher priority and its value will be used instead of the one set on the suite layer. This order of priority can be changed by using the mx.params.source parameter.

Parameters can be filtered based on the following:

  • Name - The name of the parameter.
  • Value - The value assigned to the parameter.
  • Filter done as exact match, or not - Whether the filter will be based on an exact match or a partial one.
