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.

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.
