3.  When crafting verifications, the suggestions' content of selected option is dynamically built against the live selected element. As selection of element is changed in the DOM, the suggested values are populated according to what values the current element contains.

Create a Verification Step without Recording Session

The automated test execution is much faster than a real user and often you find out it is suitable to add an additional wait in the already recorded test to ensure its stability when running on different environments. For such cases Test Studio provides the options for partial test execution, which allow you to get to a certain point of the test and record the additional waits.

For the cases when the project and scenarios are quite complex, you can add verification steps for an already recorded element and without starting a recording session. The below list guide you through the steps for this:

1.  Open a test in which you need to add a step. Choose an element from the Elements Explorer.
Note: Usually, the verification step to insert is related to an action step and its element. Thus, if you click on that action step, its target element gets highlighted in the Elements Explorer with a red arrow. Select the element and proceed to the Step Builder.

2.  Click the Step Builder pane to activate it. Under the Actions and Verification sections, you can see the options corresponding to the type of selected element.

3.  Choose the verification you need and click the Add Step button to insert the step in the test. The verifications related to specific content of the element are not populated out-of-the-box and you need to insert the expected value manually.
