Service Endpoints tab 'Mode' clarification.

Service Endpoints tab 'Mode' clarification.

Hello,
In the service endpoints tabs --> Mode column there are 3 options.

complement
override
copy

can you explain what the impact of each of them

Also, the 'help' link icon on the service endpoints tab does not work. You get object not found on the web page.

Thanks

Re: Service Endpoints tab 'Mode' clarification.

Hi Ali,

thanks for another HelpURL fix.. the different modes work as follows:

complement -> only use endpoint value when the corresponding value that has not been set on the target request

override -> use endpoint value when the corresponding value has been set on the target request (opposite of complement)

copy -> use all endpoint values (even empty ones), effectively replacing all request level values

hope that makes sense!

regards,

Re: Service Endpoints tab 'Mode' clarification.

I just tried this out, and I cannot see these settings making any difference whatsoever! Could you please provide an example?

 

Any way to get this into the official documentation? Smiley Sad Perhaps here: https://www.soapui.org/rest-testing/working-with-rest-services.html
