XPath Extract


The XPath Extract action is used with an Execute Report action to extract information from the report. The user will select the resource key of the report that was previously executed, and then supply the xpath of the information they want to retrieve. The information extracted is then stored in another resource key that can then be used with one of the assert actions to verify the validity of the data. If multiple nodes are matched, then only the value of the first will be returned. If no information is found at the node that the path is directed to, then the user can specify if the test should fail or continue.
