Creating an Execution Plan Parameter

To add a new parameter to an execution plan:

  1. In the menu, click Execution Planning > Details View.
  2. In the Execution tree, select the execution plan to which you want to add a new parameter.
  3. In the Parameters section, click New Execution Plan Parameter. The New Execution Plan Parameter dialog box displays.
  4. Type the Name and Value for the new parameter into the corresponding fields. New execution plan parameters are always of the type string and you cannot define a different type.
  5. Click OK to add the parameter to the execution plan.
    Note: You cannot create execution plan parameters with the same name as an existing test parameter, which is included in the execution plan.
For configuration testing, you can create multiple execution plans that include the same tests and you can then define different configurations in the Parameters page. Parameters from different tests that have the same name and type are displayed only once in the page. If multiple parameters from different tests have the same name, you can only override one of these parameters.
