Read/Assert Record Type Names and Descriptions

Provar now supports Read/Assert interactions on Record Type Names and Descriptions. This can be useful for verifying that a deployment has been completed, for example, if your descriptions contain identifying information.

To Read/Assert the Record Type Description, navigate to the ‘Select a record type’ screen on your preferred object and go to map the Name of the Record Type whose Description you want to Read/Assert.

In Lightning, this will map as a table (note the Row Locator header in the draft Test Step below):

To Read/Assert the Description, refer to the Interaction Type section of the draft Test Step.

To Extract all the values which are present on a screen tick the ‘Extract Values’ checkbox under the ‘Column’ sub-section:

This information can then be accessed in Provar Desktop and by other Test Steps:

To Read/Assert the Record Type Name or Description in Classic, navigate to the ‘Select Record Type’ screen on your preferred object and go to map the Name/Description of the Record Type whose Description you want to Read/Assert.

You can also perform a Read/Assert on the Name of the current selected Record Type:

Once the Test Step has been added, it can be run equally in Classic or Lightning.
