Resources section consist of all the additional resources you will need to run the test. It includes Global Parameters, Run Parameters, User Libraries, Data List and Local Agents.
Global Parameters are defined at project level in accelQ. These are used for managing parameters that are applicable at the application level such as your application URL. Values for these parameters could change from time to time (as in the URL or port number may change), but not variable at action, scenario or test case level.
Run Parameters are defined at the project level. When you define a Run Parameter, you just define the specification. Value for the parameter is not set. It is supplied when a test is running (in the Run modal).
User Libraries provide an ability to extend the standard command library set available in accelQ. Based on your specific need, you may upload multiple libraries. Once the library is imported, all the extension commands become available in the Action logic editor just like standard accelQ commands. User library is just like any standard java source file with some accelQ specific annotations expected to be incorporated.
Data Lists define lists of standard values applicable to the Test Application. An Action Parameter can be supplied with values from defined Data Lists. Scenario Test Case Generator produces permutations to cover all the values defined for the Data List.
accelQ Local Agent allows you to run tests locally inside your firewall, while the test assets are still managed centrally either on the cloud or on your on-premise server. If you are using accelQ cloud subscription, this agent allows secure access to the Application Under Test (AUT). This facilitates execution of tests on systems that are otherwise not exposed outside your network, while at the same time, not requiring opening ports for such applications. It is also possible to verify against in-network resources such as a database, filesystem, etc. as required in your test logic.
