Use the unit testing feature to verify that the operations of a Service dotNet rule function correctly before you add the external client to your testing process.
Unit testing provides only partial evidence of a correct implementation. For more comprehensive information on testing services, see Testing Services and Connectors, a document on the Integration pages of the Pega Community.
To run a unit test, complete the following steps:
