Adding more users to Integrity Manager’s tests

Hello there,

Have you ever needed to add more than 50 users using Integrity Manager? Integrity manager caps the users to 50 users. To add more, it is simple. You just need to do this:

  1. Create a test with 50 users and save it;
  2. Open the MTC file and edit it;
  3. You have to add the new users manually like this:

<Login>TestUser51</Login><Authentication_Mode>1</Authentication_Mode>

That needs to be added before theĀ <Project> tag. So, you can add as many users as you want, you just need to add these tags in this order. First <Login> then <Authentication_Mode>. Remember to change the Login name to use the real users that you have created.

I hope it helps.

God bless you!

Retaining selector selections using URL API

Hello there,

Today a quick tip: How to retain the selections that you did while going to a different document using URL API.

To do that, you simply add these parameters/values to your URL:

&originMessageID={&DOCUMENTMESSAGEID}&selectorMode=2

or selectorMode=1

It depends if you want to use the selectors to match by source attribute or source name.

I hope it helps.
