Editing Application Configurations

An application configuration defines how Silk Test Workbench connects to the application that you want to test. Silk Test Workbench automatically creates an application configuration when you create the base state. However, at times, you might need to modify, remove, or add an additional application configuration. For example, if you are testing an application that modifies a database and you use a database viewer tool to verify the database contents, you must add an additional application configuration for the database viewer tool.
  1. In the Silk Test Workbench menu, click Tools > Edit Application Configurations. If no project is selected, the Select Project dialog box appears.
  2. Select a project from the list and click Edit. The Edit Application Configurations dialog box appears and lists the existing application configurations.
  3. To add an additional application configuration, click Add application configuration.
    1. In the Select Application dialog box, select the tab that corresponds to the type of the application that you want to test.
    2. Select the application that you want to test.
    3. Click OK.
    Note: Do not add more than one browser application configuration when testing a web application with a defined base state.
  4. To remove an application configuration, click Remove.
  5. To edit an application configuration, click Edit.
  6. Click OK.
