REST test step: Assert Response XML Payload is Well-Formed Assert that the response payload is well-formed XML. Assert steps must immediately follow a Send REST Request - Inbound step. You can have multiple REST assert steps following a Send REST Request - Inbound step, but the assert steps cannot be separated from the Send REST Request - Inbound step by steps from other test categories. Table 1. Inputs Field Description Execution Order An integer specifying the order in which this step executes. As you create steps, the system automatically assigns each step an incremental value.

Otherwise, false. Application The application scope in which the system will run this step. Test (Read only.) The test to which this step belongs. Step config (Read only.) The test step for this form.
