How to use macros and where to use them?

Hi ,

What's the use of Macros in test scripts and can anybody give a very basic example please?

Can we use macros to generate timeout values for the wait methods?

 

Thanks you!

Hi @TestQA1!

 

Macros are primarily used to parameterize the Custom String generator. This is commonly used for generating a string of data that contains a Name and Address for instance.

 

Although you could use this to generate values used in variables in the wait methods.

 

Here is our overview for the Custom String Generator;

Here is the overview for the Integer macro you can use to create numbers.

I hope this helps!
