    OK, I've found a suitable solution using existing event handlers. I added a TestRunListener.afterRun handler with the following code:


    testCase = context.getTestCase()

    for (tStep in testCase.getTestStepList()) { String request = tStep.getPropertyValue("request") if (request.length() > 500) { tStep.setPropertyValue("request", "") } }

    This will execute after any test is executed, even if the test is canceled or fails.


    While I was at it, I also added handlers for clearing custom properties as well. This should hopefully help with managing the project in SVN -- we have a ton of properties that are generated each test run and these files show as conflicted every single time we sync. We really only need the properties at run time, so I added handlers to clear those too. The code is below for anyone interested:


    TestRunListener.afterRun to clear test case level properties

    testCase = context.getTestCase() {[it.key].value = ''

    TestSuiteRunListener.afterRun to clear test suite level properties {[it.key].value = ''
