External command settings

The External Command settings are part of the Configuration Settings dialog box, which allows you to configure settings for each node.

Use the External Command setting to set a command line for External Command nodes. An External Command is a command line that can be included at any point in your workspace. External Commands can contain HCL OneTest Embedded Graphical User Interface macro variables, making them context-sensitive. See the GUI Macro Variables chapter in the Reference Manual.

By default, the settings of each node are inherited from those of the parent node. When you override the settings of a parent node, changes are propagated to all child nodes within the same Configuration. Overridden fields are displayed in bold.

To edit the External Command settings for one or several nodes:

  1. In the Project Explorer, click the Settings button.

  2. Select a node in the Project Explorer pane.

  3. In the Configuration Settings list, select External Command and enter a Command line.

  4. When you have finished, click OK to validate the changes.
