Define Configuration Options Page
Allow Untrusted SSL

Select to allow untrusted SSL certificates.

Use Page Prompt

Select to use Page Prompt and PromptOK steps during recording in place of menu navigation. The Use Page Prompt option is also available on the PTF Test Recorder toolbar. The option selected here is the default for all users in this environment. The option selected on the PTF Test Recorder toolbar overrides this selection for that recording session.

See Page.

Use Message Recognition

Select to automatically create entries for the Message Recognition feature during recording. The Use Message Recognition option is also available on the PTF Test Recorder toolbar. The option selected here is the default for all users in this environment. The option selected on the PTF Test Recorder toolbar overrides this selection for that recording session.

Use Process Run

Select to use Process Run steps during recording in place of menu navigation. The Use Process Run option is also available on the PTF Recorder toolbar. The option selected here is the default for all users in this environment. The option selected on the PTF Test Recorder toolbar overrides this selection for that recording session. When this option is selected, PTF will recognize when a user accesses a run page and will populate the Process.Run parameters with the process information. All actions in the run page or process monitor page will be ignored, because those action will be handled by the Run.Process in execution.

Process Server List

Add process server names to the list that can be selected in Execution Options.

See Configuring Execution Options.

If you receive the following error message, select the Allow Untrusted SSL check box if you want to enable PTF to connect without a trusted SSL certificate:

External Command Processing Section

Use this section to define the command line programs available to PTF users within any given PTF environment. When the step/action Command.Exec is defined in the test case, PTF will use the information supplied to run the command.

Note: Automation engineers may develop many executable utilities that assist in automating functional test cases. In order to limit the scope of command line programs available to PTF users within any given PTF environment, the command line program must be defined in the PeopleSoft database.

Command Name

Enter the name to be used in PTF for the command line program. The command name will be all caps.

Command Path

Enter the path where the command line program is located.

Command File Name

Enter the name of the command line file.

Timeout

Enter the time in seconds before a command will time out.

See Command.
