Running the Application in Test Mode before Recording the Script

As explained above in Dynamic Values in the Recorded Script, “sessionid” is encrypted in production environment. It causes difficulty to correlate the value in the script. To work around the problem, the PowerServer Web APIs has two modes:

  • “0”- normal mode

  • “1”- test mode

Under the test mode, the “sessionid” included in the requests and responses is in plain text. The security is compromised but it shall be sufficient for the test environment.
