Test Repository parameters

Test Repository parameters refer to Test Repositories that are used for some LiveCompare actions. For example, the Search Test Repository action has a Test Repository parameter, which refers to the Test Repository whose test assets are to be searched.

To set the value of a Test Repository parameter, open the Property Editor and click the field to the right of the parameter's ‘Test Repository’ action property. The Test Repository dialog is displayed in the lower portion of the Workflow Editor, showing the name of the parameter node being edited. Note that the workflow diagram may not be edited while this dialog is displayed.
