Setting the Default Agent

Silk Test Classic automatically assigns a default agent to your project or scripts. When you create a new project, the agent currently selected in the toolbar is the default agent. Silk Test Classic automatically starts the default agent when you open a project or create a new project. You can configure Silk Test Classic to automatically connect to the Open Agent or the Classic Agent by default.

To set the default agent, perform one of the following:
  • Click Options > Runtime and set the default agent in the Runtime Options dialog box.
  • Click the appropriate agent icon in the toolbar.

When you enable extensions, set the recovery system, configure the application, or record a test case, Silk Test Classic uses the default agent. When you run a test, Silk Test Classic automatically connects to the appropriate agent. Silk Test Classic uses the window declaration, locator, or Find or FindAll command to determine which agent to use.
