Entering or Changing BLOB content

The Projects to Export list shows all projects in the Silk Test Workbench database that you have access rights to.
Note: The Connection Info section is only displayed when you are using the standalone version of Silk Test Workbench, and not when you have started Silk Test Workbench from eCATT.
  1. Select the projects that contain the primary test script you want to include in the BLOB by clicking the appropriate check boxes. If your primary script contains calls to other test scripts, select those projects also. When you select projects, all defined Record and Playback setting groups appear in the Record Settings and Playback Settings lists. These groups are set in Silk Test Workbench options for Record and Playback.
  2. If you want a defined group of record options to be part of the BLOB, select that record setting group from the Record Settings list box.
  3. If you want a defined group of playback options to be part of the BLOB, select that playback setting group from the Playback Settings list box.
  4. Select the primary Silk Test Workbench project from the Primary Project box. The primary project is the Silk Test Workbench project to which the BLOBs primary script belongs.
  5. The Asset Type box determines the type of test being saved to the BLOB. Select .NET script or visual test from the list.
  6. The Primary .NET script/visual test box lists all available test scripts or visual tests available in selected projects, as well as any .NET scripts or visual tests from currently loaded BLOBs, which are temporarily stored in the Silk Test Workbench database. .NET scripts or visual tests appear in the list depending on the Asset type selection. Select the primary .NET script or visual test for this BLOB from the list.
  7. Click Save to save the BLOB in the SAP/R3 database.

    By default, the Silk Test Workbench DSN for STW_EDIT and STW_EXEC is uppercase and must match the case of the DSN installed on the SAP server. For example, if you receive the error "STW_Edit Not Available" when saving a BLOB, check the case of the DSN name. You may need to update the Silk Test Workbench DSN from "STW_EDIT" to "STW_Edit".

    If you change a default playback or record option in Silk Test Workbench, the settings become nameless. To save a BLOB, you are forced to give such nameless settings a name. Playback and record settings can be saved to a profile. For additional information, see the topics Saving Playback Options and Saving and Reusing Record Options.

    Silk Test Workbench displays the SAP/R3 Login dialog box, where you can set database login parameters and connect to the SAP/R3 database for BLOB transfers.

If you are already connected to the SAP/R3 database, Silk Test Workbench only requires your database password. If you are not already connected to the SAP/R3 database, Silk Test Workbench requires your SAP/R3 login user name and password for the initial connection. See the topic "Setting SAP/R3 Login Parameters" for specific instructions.

If an RFC connection has been established, the AS Host and Client information displays in the Save BLOB dialog box. If that information is not displaying, an RFC connection has not been established for the current session. You must then set the RFC connection parameters to transfer BLOB data to eCATT. See "Setting or changing RFC Connection Parameters."
