Use the following procedure to generate a web service baseline from a set of transactions in the CAI database.
Web services with attachments are supported.
Signed SOAP messages are supported on all platforms except IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.5. However, CAI does not save SSL information to the baseline. If the SSL information is required, configure the following fields in the generated baseline:
These fields are located in the Web Service Execution (XML) step.
This feature supports transport-level security, which is a point-to-point security model. This feature does not support signed message-level security, which is an end-to-end security model.
Follow these steps:
Click the plus sign that appears to the left of the name.
Create a baseline that contains one or more test cases that apply to an entire conversation or session, instead of simply one of its transactions. This option is not available for merged transactions.
Create a baseline that contains a single test case and a data set.
Create a baseline that contains a suite of tests (one for each transaction) and a suite document for running the tests.
The test case includes a step that corresponds to the transaction frame that you added to the shelf. For example, selecting a SOAP frame results in a test case that includes a Web Service Execution (XML) step.
The test case includes an Execute Transaction Frame step.
Converts the date strings in the baseline test case or suite to variable definition strings. For example, instead of a string that contains a specific date and time, the string can contain a function that specifies seven days from the current date and time. This behavior is equivalent to the doDateDeltaFromCurrent form of magic dates in CA Service Virtualization. If this option is unsupported, the option does not appear.
