Is it possible to edit Smart Assertions as Text?
We are currently in development and our assertions can change a lot. The most annoying aspects are items that repeat a lot in lists. Is there a way that Smart Assertions can be edited in a text editor so that we can use Find/Replace to update multiple items more easily? This would safe us a lot of time.
I do not use Smart Assertions for the very reason you are stating... I bet the authors of ReadyAPI needed a quick method to do an assertion for people who do not want to code anything. Since you are requesting text editor capability, you probably could use a groovy script and write your own assertions in it. It allows a lot easier maintenance of the assertion because you don't have to crack open a dialog for the assertion and you could consolidate to one script to be called if you wanted to go even farther for low maintenance.
I guess that´s the way to go. I was hoping that there might be a way to convert the Smart Assertions to a script because this would safe a lot of time with some of the responses that require hundreds of Assertions. Capturing the initial response would be useful as a basic template which could then be refined inside the script.
