Unit testing a Service File rule

Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Use the unit testing feature to verify that the operations of a service file rule function correctly before you add an external component to your testing process.

Before you begin, see How to provide test data when testing service rules.

Unit testing provides only partial evidence of a correct implementation. For more comprehensive information on testing services, see Testing Services and Connectors, a document available from the Integration pages of the Pega Community.

To run a unit test, complete the following steps:

  1. Save the rule form.
  2. Start the Tracer by clicking Actions Trace . For more information, see Tracing services.
  3. Click Actions Run .
  4. Complete the form as described in the following table, and then click Execute.

  • Use current requestor context — Use your current requestor session (including your RuleSet list, privileges, and current clipboard).
