Downloading Silk Performer Projects

Whereas opening a Silk Performer project may involve checking out a Silk Performer project from a source-control tool, editing the project in Silk Performer, and checking the project back into Silk Central, downloading a project involves downloading a copy of a project and working with it independently of Silk Central. Changes you make to downloaded projects are not automatically migrated back to Silk Central.

To download a Silk Performer project:

  1. In the menu, click Tests > Details View .
  2. In the Tests tree, select a Silk Performer test.
  3. Click the Properties tab.
  4. Scroll down to the Silk Performer Test Properties section.
  5. Click Download Project. A file download dialog box displays, asking you to confirm that you wish to download the specified Silk Performer project to your local system.
  6. Click Save to open the file in Silk Performer. If not already open in the background, Silk Performer is invoked.
  7. The Select Target Directory dialog box displays, loaded with the default directory path to which the specified Silk Performer project will be saved. If you approve of the specified pathname, click OK, otherwise click Browse to specify an alternate path.
    Note: Even if you have configured source-control integration, you will not be prompted to check out the Silk Performer project from your source-control system because you are working with this file independently of Silk Central.
    Note: Silk Performer projects utilized by Silk Central can also be downloaded directly from the Silk Performer user interface. For additional information, refer to the Silk Performer documentation.
