A page is a set of sequential requests sent from a single web page. A page object is created for each web page visited during recording. Pages are created automatically but can be modified after recording by right mouse clicking and selecting Edit Page.
You can also create a new page after recording by:
1. Right clicking on the top level request which does not already belong to a page and selecting Create Container > Create Page.
A transaction is a set of sequential requests representing a meaningful step in a test scenario. It is used to track performance characteristics of time-critical business transactions consisting of several user actions. Transactions add another level of performance tracking in addition to requests and pages.
You can define transactions while recording a test case, as described in the Creating Transactions section, or after the test case is created.
To define a transaction after the test case is created:
1. Go to the Build Test Case node.
Transactions can also be nested. You can nest current transactions by:
1. Right click on the top level transaction you wish to be nested and select Create Container > Create Transaction.
Some of the properties of pages and transactions are described in the next several sections.
Info: All page and transaction properties are displayed in the property grid. You can modify any property which is not grayed out.
The full list of properties, toolbar commands and context menu options are provided in the User Interface Reference -> Test Case Tree -> Page.
The full list of Transaction properties, toolbar commands, and context menu options is provided in User Interface Reference -> Transactions & Loops.
Another way to create a page or transaction is to select multiple requests or objects in the test case tree -> right click -> select Create Page or Create Container > Create Transaction. This will create a page or transaction around the selected objects.
