Unit testing a Parse Delimited rule

Updated on April 5, 2022

You can test a Parse Delimited rule directly, separate from the activity or other context in your application in which it will eventually operate.


For a simple test, obtain test data. You can choose to type or paste the data into a form, store it in a local Windows file, or upload it into a text file rule.

Conducting the test

For basics of unit testing, see Unit testing individual rules.

  1. Save the Parse Delimited form.
  2. Click the Run toolbar button or the equivalent keyboard shortcut CTRL + R. A guided test window opens.
  3. Select a radio button to indicate the source of test data.
  4. If the data is to be entered directly, type or paste the data into the text area. If the data is in a local file, click Browse and navigate to the file. Click OK. If the test data is in a text file rule, enter all three key parts of the rule separated by periods.
  5. Click Execute to evaluate the rule. An XML document appears in a new window, showing properties and the corresponding parsed values. The clipboard is not altered; no properties are updated.
